We have been hearing for several months now about a new fitness center at the base of the Wilson Club Apartments at 1124 W. Wilson.
Now that permits are approved, construction is ongoing, and the location is live on Google, we can confirm that that JT Training Studio is coming in October.
The concept transforms the large empty space at the bottom of the building into into a "shared training facility" that will cater to private trainers seeking space to work with clients, similar to a shared kitchen concept.
JT Training Studios is Chicago's new home for Independent Personal Trainers! With six fully-equipped strength training stations, a shared warm-up area, and an MAT®/LMT table, JT Training Studios has everything you need to deliver the best 1-on-1, partner, and small group training, MAT®, and massage therapy service—without any crowds, waiting, or sharing. Ever. No contracts, no quotas, no commitments—just training. Bring an existing clientele, or build your client base without worrying about paying a high monthly rent or giving the gym half (or more) of your income. Simply schedule online and only pay for the time you use. And with our tiered pricing model, the more you train, the less you pay!"
