As an avid traveler myself, I know how hard it can be to find a way to exercise when away from home, unless you are specifically traveling for an activity like a skiing or diving. One of the amenities that is important to me when seeking lodging is some kind of exercise facility, so when my husband and I opened the Old Chicago Inn we wanted to be able to provide our guests with just such an extra.
If you’re traveling to Chicago this winter, you would probably prefer to find an indoor workout. When you stay at the Old Chicago Inn, you can enjoy one of the only B&Bs in the city to offer a full gym membership. With each night’s stay our guests are entitled to use the facilities at Number One Gym, located just two doors north at 3232 N. Sheffield Avenue. Open since 1990 the Number One Gym is owned and operated by Gerry Burczyk. This well maintained and exceptionally clean gym offers a wide variety of cardiovascular and cable weight machines, in addition to having a sizable free weight area. The gym does have locker room and shower facilities and is open seven days a week:
Monday – Friday 5am to 9pm
Saturday 8am to 6pm
Sunday 8am to 3pm
So now you can keep those New Year’s resolutions when you stay with us this winter.
Until then, Happy Travels!
