Hey everyone. I'm going to start working at the Daley Center soon and I want to commute on my bike but I need to find somewhere where I can shower nearby. I'm not the most familiar with gyms in that area. I just know that the LA Fitness on Randolph is too much for just shower use. Any helpful tips are much appreciated!!
If you don't get any good suggestions, it's not for everyone but you could consider showering before the ride. Bacteria is what causes people to smell bad, not sweat. So you could shower, bike in, wipe down with some baby wipes, and theoretically you'll be golden. :)
If all else fails I might have to do this
Pretty much my practice. I work near the Daley Center and have long abandoned Millenium. I shower, ride, wipe. I have a suit and tie job and it works fine most days.
Do you change at the office? That's what I do; fortunately I can close my door.
Same. I can close and lock a door.
They may have a wait list, but the McDonald's Cycle Center at Millennium Park has showers for members and likely is the cheapest option in the loop. It's a pretty quick walk from there to Daley Center using the pedway.
I've had bad experiences with them.
Executive Sports and Fitness. 77 W Wacker Dr # 3900, Chicago, IL 60601. $40 to join and $70 a month. Includes complimentary towels, razors, shampoo, q-tips...etc.
Do you know if anyone is allowed to use that facility?
For a fee. It's a Lifestart chain gym.
I was a member for a couple of years, even though I don't work in that building.
