Monster garage on the north side, take the train out to aurora, walk the 2 blocks to Frantz's gym. Ernie lifts every Sat. morning at 9.
If you have a car, Jakked gym in montgomery is always fun for the strongman equipment.
Quads on the north side is a great facility with every bit of equipment ever made. Quads on the south side is very intense and has an Ed Coan, which makes up for not having hammer strength.
