My family and I are moving to Naperville later this month and we would appreciate recommendations for a health club that has the following:

1) Large selection of cardio equipment and weights (both free and machines)
2) Indoor lap pool (outdoor pool for summer ideal but not required)
3) Classes, including spinning/cycling and yoga
4) Tennis courts would be nice, but not required
5) Daycare for kids (ideally fitness programs kids can attend while parents are exercising)
6) Sauna/steam
7) Budget - roughly $100-150 per month for family of three

Many thanks!

We work out at home, but I know there's a Planet Fitness on the north side of town and an Xtreme Fitness or something off 59 and 75th. There's another ginormous place on the north end ... Lifetime Fitness?

Where are you moving within Naperville? You don't want to drive all over town if you can help it.

It depends where you end up in Naperville--the city encompasses a huge area. I used LifeTime Fitness for quite a while, but have switched to a club in downtown Chicago near my office. The LifeTime facility is very, very nice and has all the amenities you list, though it can get crowded on weekends. Note, though, that it's actually a Warrenville address.

There are quite a few new fitness clubs here, so I'd shop around a bit. With all the competition, you should be able to negotiate a good deal . . . don't accept the first price that they give you when you walk in the door.

We'll be just south of downtown near Washington. I've also heard good things about Lifetime from the realtor we've used, so I'll check into that.

Does anyone know anything about the Edward Health & Fitness Center? It's very close to where we'll be living.

Lifetime Fitness is probably your best bet. Or you could look into the new L.A. Fitness off of Naperville Rd near I-88.

It's small and has much more limited facilities than LifeTime. I found that the hours weren't that great--I can't tell you how many times I drove over there, only to find that it was closed late in the evening or over the weekend. The limited hours were the primary reason I switched to LifeTime.

Also, a lot of the people who use the Edward facility are Edward Hospital cardiac patients who are involved in cardiac rehab. We all get old, but it's not what I'd describe as a very high-energy facility.

If you are involved in cardiac rehab or some other fitness regimen as part of your recovery from an accident or illness, Edward might be a better choice. For most others, I'd say "not to much."

As long as you're close to downtown Naperville, I'd suggest checking out the YMCA. It's hardly leading edge, but has good facilities and is reasonably priced. There are a lot of programs for kids.
