Free + Cheap First Visit Fitness Classes - Chicago Suburbs

One of my favorite aspects about living in Chicago is the access there is to a huge variety of fitness studios and classes in the city! I absolutely love trying out new studios and finding workouts and instructors I love. But it can get expensive. I don't have tons of money to spend each month, so I want to make sure my money is well spent. I decided that before I commit to a monthly membership or class package at a studio, I wanted to be able to test the gym out. I've found most studios offer specials for first timers/new clients. By testing out new studios for free or cheap, I've found places and workouts that I truly LOVE. I'm sharing the deals I've found so you can find your favorites workouts too!

I've branched out from one of my most popular posts (Free + Cheap First Visit Fitness Classes in Chicago) and created a guide for those of you that live or work or work out in the Chicago Suburbs too! SO many of you asked and I finally finished compiling my list! This ones formatted a bit differently than my city post to help you find studios easier. Clicking the button below will take you to the general suburb region. If you're curious about a specific city, hit Ctrl + F to pop open a search box on the page. Type in your specific city and you'll be able to jump around the page to any studios where that is a listed location.

Please note: these specials are current as of May 22, 2018. If you know of an update, addition or correction that should be made, let me know!  Also, please know that some of these links are affiliate links which may supply me with free classes or studio credit to use. You don't have to use these links (and can always google the main studio site) but I would greatly appreciate if you did!
