Fitness Center Phase 3 Plan

We are working hard to prepare for an eventual reopening, as the state of Illinois remains in Phase 3 of the Governor's Restore Illinois Plan until further notice.
In Phase 3 of the Governor's Restore Illinois Plan, fitness centers are permitted to have personal training and fitness classes with 10 or fewer people. The Fitness Center will remain closed through Phase 3, and trainers may conduct personal training and group fitness classes outside the building, as weather permits.
Once the Governor declares that Illinois is ready to move to Phase 4, we will announce the date the Fitness Center will reopen to members in a limited capacity. Please watch for this announcement to be posted on this page, on our Weekly News & Updates eNewsletter or on our Facebook page @bgfitnesscenter.  

Membership Update 

All memberships were automatically put on hold as of March 17; you do not need to worry about any billing with your account.
Once we fully reopen in phase 5, all memberships, including student passes, will be extended for the duration that the facility was closed, at no additional charge.
We hope you are safe and healthy while staying at home. We miss our members very much, and we can’t wait to see everyone once the Fitness Center reopens in Phase 5.

Personal Training begins Monday, June 1

One-on-one personal training starts Monday, June 1, and may take place inside or outside the Fitness Center, as weather permits. Protocols for social distancing and wearing masks will be clearly communicated to members prior to beginning a session.
If you are interested in working with a personal trainer, please contact Debra Saper at
We look forward to seeing our training clients again, and welcome new clients to begin training as well.
