CAROL STREAM, Ill. (October 22, 2013) – Retro Fitness, a low-cost, high-value concept that gives members an unbelievable, high-energy workout experience, is heading into the Midwest by opening its first Illinois gym just outside of Chicago in Carol Stream, located at 608 E. North Ave.
Local community members are encouraged to drop by the new Carol Stream Retro Fitness location to sign-up for the $19.99 membership rate and receive a $0 enrollment fee, while the gym completes the construction of the full-service facility which is slated to open in December.
“Retro Fitness amplifies what everyone loves about working out and integrates it into a friendly, non-intimidating gym atmosphere with unparalleled customer service,” said Charles Cui, owner of the new Retro Fitness Carol Stream. “Members can change their life for less than 75 cents a day—you can’t beat that price with our amenities.”
Retro Fitness of Carol Stream will feature a 10,500 square-foot facility with a 2,500 square-foot mezzanine. The facility blends vibrant color schemes into a fun, energetic atmosphere where gym members can comfortably meet their fitness goals. The location will offer a full collection of top-of-the line strength equipment and cardio machines from industry leaders complete with individual LCD television monitors.
Adding to the excitement, the Retro Fitness of Carol Stream will offer a variety of live classes, including spin, Zumba, group fitness classes and circuit training, among other options. Members can also work up a sweat in the popular cardio movie theatre that houses cardio equipment such as treadmills, ellipticals and recumbent bikes, all arranged in a stadium-like theater setting, and plays movies on a gigantic screen throughout the day. In addition, members can enjoy personal training, virtual fitness classes, full-service locker rooms, child sitting, the latest in tanning technology, massages, a full-service pro-shop and a RetroBlends juice bar, all within an exciting and energetic social atmosphere.
“The Carol Stream location is just the beginning of the Retro Fitness expansion in the Chicagoland Area,” says Cui. “We are looking to open three more locations in the market within the next year and a half and are currently identifying the sites, and with many more clubs coming in the very near future. Retro Fitness is unlike any other gym in the area, and I am looking forward to bringing it to the community.”
Retro Fitness Carol Stream will also offer members a free mobile app which gives them a multitude of digital health and fitness resources in one place. From tracking workouts and demonstrating proper fitness techniques to inspirational push notifications and fresh monthly educational content, the app is intended to be a true workout companion to help keep members motivated and on track with reaching their goals. The constantly evolving app even allows members to order a smoothie from the RetroBlends juice bar and schedule personal training appointments.
