"Best Fitness Deal in Bucktown"
Through Dec. 31, 2010, Bucktown Fitness Club at 2100 W. North is offering a $475 yearly special, with no contracts, and no initiation fees. A former manufacturing facility, Jamie purchased BFC in the late 1980s. The gym is family owned, and operated.
As for the contracts, Jamie told The Pipeline that he just wants people to get moving, and working out, and doesn't feel like you need to charge extra fees to do that. His lower than usual overheard since he owns his building means he doesn't have to raise membership fees to pay the rent.
If you need a juice bar, Internet cafe, and people wearing fancy fitness outfits sweating next to you, BFC is not the gym for you. If you just need equipment- weights, or cardio, and a spot to stretch, along with another spot to store your stuff while you workout- than this is the place for you. Pictured are Jeremy, who has been a member about a year, and a half, and J. who has belonged to BFC for six years, and continues to visit the club though she now lives in Humboldt Park.
