It’s that time of year. Time to start making resolutions and plans for a healthy and fitter new year. We asked our fans for the best gyms and health clubs that offer childcare, we also scoured and searched all the local groups for their suggestions. So no more excuses! Pack up the kiddies, let them play while you get your work out in!
These are the gyms that our fans recommend in no particular order.

I discovered if I have an end goal (this year it’s my very first half-marathon) to work towards, I’m more likely to work out. A HUGE plus is being able to be comfortable with the daycare at the facility, and the hours of the childcare. That is why I love Gurnee’s FitNation so much. Fantastic ladies in “kidnation”, and super hours. They also offer “fit kids” programs and just this morning my 5 & 3 year old got to try Zumba! Love it there.
