Who Are We?

The Foundry is more than a Gym.  We believe in helping you forge your best self through sustainable health and fitness.

We believe we are not meant to go to work, sit in cubicles and collect a paycheck for years on end while our physical health declines.

We believe we are meant to explore, run, jump, lift and play so that we may experience life to the fullest and inspire others to do the same.

I started the gym in 2011 in the back room of my apartment with a handful of weights, two friends as clients and a lot of passion.

Six years later, we operate a 6,000 sqf facility in downtown Chicago, work with hundreds of busy professionals and have been voted one of Chicago’s best gyms
