Quads gym is a rare find if you have been looking for a serious body building gym in Chicago. This gym is not like some of the other bubble gum health clubs in the city. Downstairs is all cardio equipment, with an area for stretching and abs. The upstairs is a combination of state of the art equipment, and old school weights. They have everything from hammer strength machines to old school dumbells and weights. It's not a gym that gets super busy. Usually their rush hour is between 5pm and 7pm, and even then it's not too bad. One draw back is the parking. If you are driving, you will be forced to park at a meter on the street. If you do find yourself on the northside, check this place out. You have to look for though because it's tucked away on Broadway. I think a day pass is ten bucks, but I can't be sure since I'm a member.
