I've always wanted to try Pilates but just never made any effort to seek out a great place and sign up. Enter Groupon, my godsend.

I first came to Body Endeavors about a year ago. I started taking Pilates Mat classes then eventually Private lessons. I love the attention that the trainers give to you. It is so nice that they offer massage here as well, since it is

Great space and fantastic instructors. I have taken private lessons here from both the apprentice trainers and the fully-qualified trainers.

I've always lacked grace, but I've always been athletic. I finally decided to try and get my grace in check and with a little boost from Groupon, I was pushed over the edge into trying pilates.

Their facilities are small, but comfortable, and they are well-equipped with all the Pilates machines & mats, etc. that one could want. My instructor Anna is great--she pushes me just enough. Sometimes she gives the instruction rather

The owner went out of her way to help make this first experience a breeze. For a first-timer like me, she made getting started a very convenient, pain-free process.

Definitely a great experience for beginners through advanced. They have small locker rooms and cardio equipement to use before/after your session to warm up or get a good workout after.

Pros: Helpful

Cons: Nothing so far!

It's time this place gave up. They're understaffed, sessions are shortened or late, no refunds are offered even if your instructor doesn't show up (but you're charged in full if you cancel) and there's a general aura of stupidity. A

Pros: It's closing down

Cons: Everything

Very disorganized. Seems one receptionist has to keep track of too many things. Signed up for an advanced class that turned out to be a DANGEROUS intermediate class, and haven't been back since.

Have been there a dozen times or so, and most of my "55 minute sessions" were cut short by at least ten minutes. Also hurt my neck during a session, alerted my trainer, and she told me to ignore it and continue. The place also smells

Pros: They validate parking for $3 for 90 min

Cons: Sometimes it's hard to get parking and traffic can be a pain

It's ok, but the instruction is very uneven, and the space is too dark for my taste. Be careful who you choose, lots of trainees! Since loosing my instructor, don't think I'd go back.

I've only ever gone there for massages, but their masseuse, Joanne, is great! She's tough, but in a good way! The heating pad on the table is a bonus, and I always come away feeling totally relaxed and un-kinked. Price is average for massages in Chicago (about $75/hour).

I enjoy my sessions at Body Endeavors, though I work with a trainer who rents space there. They have a lot of reformers, but the equipment is laid out so that if you are doing duet sessions (2 people), you can't both do the Cadillac at the same time as they are in different rooms. There are also often classes in the 2nd room, which prevents the 2nd Cadillac from being used. But it is a pleasant atmosphere and the equipment is in good condition.
