What's a neighborhood without a spot to mack on spandex-wearing lovelies? Itís obviously not Andersonville, home to one of Chicagoís best workout facilities. Far from the windowless, mechanical vibe served up by so many national faceless powerhouses, Cheetah takes a personal approach to your personal care.
Designed using principles of feng shui, the three-story space promotes good chi with its hardwood floors and oversized gilded mirrors that lean against exposed brick wall. It may be a comforting environment, but that doesnít mean itís not the home of some serious sweating.
Extensive free weight, cardio (complete with a bevy of TVs), and abs facilities complement the kickboxing, spinning, pilates mat, yoga, and aerobics schedule (all classes included in membership). Monthly customer appreciation brunches, special classes supporting the AIDS Ride and Chicago Marathon, and seasonal treats like yoga on the beach make Cheetah a healthy choice for the body and mind.
