APF in Chicago?


#1

I will be up north in the Evanston area - no car and only public transport. Anyone know of any garage gyms, commercial gyms, or any other gym where I can train with a good group of APF lifters. APF really isn't important, its just monolift, reversehyper, westside type of training, etc. Thanks for the help.


#2

The YMCA Mcgaw on oak is a nice gym. Very inexpensive, and some decent lifters. No one westside in particular, although guys will put up some big weights here and there


#3

Is that reasonably close to Northwestern if you don't have a car. Sorry, but I live in Texas and am not familiar with your big city ways:-) !!!


#4

Ok checked it out and it looks pretty close. Do you train there? Any idea on the stuff there- monolift, bars, etc...


#5

Its right next to Northwestern

they have a squat rack, benches and your usual machines

Go check it out. Its not very busy most of the time except for 5-7pm after work.

You could also try northwesterns gym


#6

Thanks. If I end up moving there I will def check it out. I heard there is a pretty cool gym in Lyons too. A YMCA that has a monolift.


#7

The Velocity Sports in Willowbrook has a powerlifting team who i watched compete in an APF meet over springbreak. Their facility has a monolift. If memory serves me correctly, the chairman of the IL APF is Eric Stone, and he trains/works @ that same facility.
