Can someone recommend a good gym for olympic weightlifting that is near the West Loop? Or at the very least, a gym that has bumper plates.
Also, there is some crossfit gyms near me. Does anyone know how it would work if I wanted to just go there and do my own workout? Or do I have to participate in their group workouts? [/quote]
I actually live in the West Loop and attend one of the crossfit gyms. I go to Crossfit Construct and have been for several years. At our gym we have two programs, depending on your goals. One follows a group WOD program while the other is a strictly strength & conditioning program which can be seen at chicagostrength.com. The strength program is more individual and i’m actually following the strength programming myself. It’s very structured and well worth it.
