Winter Is Coming – Climb the Wall!

Have you had an opportunity to try out the climbing wall? With the weather changing and putting more variety into your workouts, maybe now is the time to check it out. We do make it easy with an Orientation for beginners and advanced beginners. This is an excellent way to learn the basics of climbing and how to belay. There is a one-time fee of $35 and that includes your shoes and harness rental. For the more experienced climber, we offer a Belay Check, which is more of a refresher course to make sure you have your safety and climbing skills down. This $20 and equipment rental is $5 for shoes and harness each.  We are also planning to bring back 1 day a week of lunchtime climbing, details coming soon!

Ready to book your reservation or have more questions? Please email:  Bob Good at climbing@lakeshoresf.com


Get Halloween Party Ready with PT360!

Halloween is just a month and a half out! Summer is coming to an end and its pre-Halloween costume crunch time. Are you ready for your costume? Let PT360 help you get to where you want to be. Now offering a special fall promo for new clients, we offer one on one, buddy, or small group training sessions. Please contact ICPT360@Lakeshoresf.com to set up an appointment.



Skipping legs day might be among the worst things you can do for your goals. The hormone release gained from working your biggest muscle groups (glutes and legs) will help with muscle growth in all areas.  Working these big muscle groups also puts out a huge calorie burn to help you start to see those abs! Front squats and Deadlifts are going to also be big core strengthening exercises, which will help progress your other big lifts. Not sure how to do legs day? Try this short and simple (not easy) workout to get more legs than a bucket of chicken!

Deadlifts: 5 Sets – 5 Reps

Perform the next set back to back. 5 Sets.

Front Squats: 12 reps

Split Squats: 10 ea leg

Box Jumps: 8

Then maybe close out the week with Jack’s Friday night Candle Light yoga. Great way to wind down and loosen up those sore muscles.

Having trouble with form? Want to progress your legs day to a new level? Please contact ICPT360@Lakeshoresf.com to set up an appointment.

Meet Our Two Newest Climbing Wall Team Members!

Please welcome our two newest climbing wall instructors Logan Dodd and Anna Bifano. In an effort to continue the tradition of well-trained and friendly instructors, we have expanded our team at Illinois Center.

Logan just moved to Chicago from Champaign, Illinois. He has taught climbing classes and set routes. One of his first experiences with climbing was an outdoor trip to Jackson Falls, Illinois. “I was blown away by the sport and once I got home I immediately bought my own gear and started training”. Ever since, climbing has become one of his favorite hobbies, along with table tennis and inline skating.  Logan is working Saturday and Sunday from 11am-2pm.

Anna is finishing up her degree at DePaul University this year. She grew up in Boston, MA, and was introduced to climbing by her family at a fairly young age. Anna moved to Chicago after high school and got back into climbing about three years ago. I’ve climbed on. Over the last two years she has taken her climbing seriously and has been striving to improve and learn all that she can about climbing, safety in climbing and hiking. “I love it and I can’t wait to learn more”.  Anna works Wednesday evenings from 5-9pm.


Meet the new GM of Lakeshore Sport & Fitness 

It’s no surprise that Jarrett Brown is a big fan of Lakeshore Sports & Fitness (LSF). Not only is he passionate about health and fitness but he also has a more personal connection to the club.

“I met my wife while working at the Lincoln Park club,” Brown said. “She was a personal trainer there. It started as friends and at some point in time, we started dating. We just celebrated a three-year anniversary in September.”

“I’ve been with LSF for over 5 years and I like the fact that it’s not just a gym, it’s a health club, with all the amenities, the sense of community and the people you meet.” “I’ve either been in the motorcycle industry or Health and wellness my entire adult life and its true when you do what you love you never work a day in your life.”

My goal is to help more people get results with their time here at LSF, whatever that means to them.  For any comments or feedback, feel free to reach him at JarrettB@lakeshoresf.com.
