Lakeshore Sport and Fitness Cost

Written by: Staff

Established in 1970, the Lakeshore Sport and Fitness, formerly known as the Lakeshore Athletic Club, has two locations in the Chicago, Illinois area, each offering state-of-the-art facilities, programs, classes and equipment.

Taken over by new owners in 2010, the new ownership team has slowly transformed the club’s programs and facilities.

How much does a Lakeshore Sport and Fitness membership cost?

The official website of the club, doesn’t note the exact prices; rather they state they have three levels of membership, each with its own inclusions and pricing structure.  While the club didn’t offer the pricing, they asked that you fill out the simple contact information to have a gym representative contact you.

While the gym didn’t list the prices of the membership options, we did find a few members on the gym’s Yelp page, claiming the prices they paid, and according to the prices noted, it seemed a membership could range anywhere from $80 for a student to as much as $250+ a month for a family membership.

The deal wasn’t active at the time of this publishing, but this Groupon deal page did note a one-month membership had a $120 a month value, whereas the family one-month membership had a $234 value.

Chicago Mag, in its “Best Gyms Over $80 a Month” noted the price averaged $136 a month, with a one-time $199 initiation fee.
