Review: Retro Fitness – Carol Stream, IL

There’s a new place to get fit in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs. Retro Fitness opened its doors in Carol Stream earlier this month. The gym is small, but it packs a punch with many of the amenities of a larger gym and unique features not found in other chains.

Even on a busy day I don’t foresee there being a wait for the cardio machines. There are rows of treadmills and ellipticals on the first and second floor. There is also a large selection of weight machines and free weights.

There are a few unique machines I have never seen before. The ab blaster which simulates the old school medicine ball sit-up exercise and a glute kick machine that I wish I could take home with me! I also enjoyed the spin bikes with their built-in programming that guides you through a workout of flats, sprints, seated and standing climbs.

Another fun Retro Fitness feature is the Cardio Theater. A feature-length film plays to a room full of treadmills, stair climbers and other cardio machines! What better way to pass the time during a workout than watching a movie? The Retro Blends Smoothie Bar offers juice and smoothies to replenish you post workout.

The Carol Stream location also has a group class studio. They start offering classes like Tabata Boot Camp, Zumba and Retro Flex beginning the last week of February. Personal trainers are also available to help you reach your fitness goals.
