My membership started in the Chicago/Lakeview facility when I was going to school in Chicago. I trained there for almost 2 years and completed my first figure prep there. I really loved the monthly rate and the employees at that location so when I moved back to the suburbs I was happy to learn there was a Fitness 19 in my area so I continued my membership there.
Unfortunately, this facility was not as inviting.
I referred this facility to my fathers girlfriend with the hopes that we could workout together since she needed some help getting started. Almost immediately I was approached by the owner when the male Personal Trainer saw me, being a pretty fit individual, working out with my fathers girlfriend, who is just starting her fitness journey, and told me that personal training is not aloud between members. I assured him there is no personal training going on, no compensation whatsoever, just me helping my friend so that she could get some fundamentals of lifting under her belt. Ever since then, I was watched like a hawk by the said Personal Trainer. When I talked to anyone or worked out with anyone he made my workout partners and me extremely uncomfortable. After discussing this with other members I found I was not alone and numerous people have been told that, correcting form is not allowed.
After a couple months of not going because of the concern of being uncomfortable and being falsely accused, I finally convinced my friend to come back. The first day back I was showing her some stabilization moves to get her back into the swing of things while I did my leg day with another member. As we were walking out, I was asked into the office where the manager regretfully told me I was BANNED from the facility. In complete shock (and being 8 weeks out from my second show), I fought to keep my membership with no luck. I left the gym quietly but crushed that it came down to this.
As a person who believes spreading the passion of health and fitness, I am utterly appalled that Fitness 19 would ban someone who is trying to motivate a person to change her lifestyle. No one should feel helpless and uncomfortable about going to the gym and if that is the way Fitness 19 Grayslake wants to be portrayed than I do not want to associate myself with them. They have now lost 6 memberships (me and the people I brought there) because of an awful personal trainer whom no one wants to work with and an owner who clearly does not care about the needs and well being of his members. I will be cancelling my membership tomorrow.

The ability to come in and do my thing without feeling like it is a competition is what I like best about Fitness 19. The ability to bring friends with me unlimited times without an extra charge is a huge perk.

It's nice to have the easy access in and out. This club is not a meat market. There is no waiting for a machine to open up, and the price is good!

I enjoy coming here to work out as the people (workers, trainers, etc) are friendly and there is all the equpiment needed to get a full body workout. The environment is very clean and the price is the best for all you get.

The equipment at Fitness 19 is great. I wish the treadmills had t.v.'s though. The staff are very nice and helpful. The trainers are awesome and very knowledgeable, especially Kirk. The kids center is small, but the staff is great and takes care of the kids well.

This is a terrible gym! Not recommended! Dirty, personal trainers are not knowledgable and the child care center is understaffed, small and dirty. I guess you get what you pay for.

A cool easy place to workout. Im so tired of the xsports and Bally's. This is a nice comfortable place to workout with no big fees or stupid contracts. I just bought a membership and got 3 personal training sessions with my joining fee. So now I can pay 19 a month and actually know what Im doing. Cool
