What is The Foundry / What does the name mean?
The Foundry is a premier health and fitness training facility located at 730 S. Clark St. in Chicago’s Printers Row neighborhood. We are also the home of Printers Row CrossFit.
The name draws inspiration from Chicago history where foundries played an important role in our growth from a small town to a world-class city. A foundry is a place where iron is cast, and iron castings are used to build the foundation for important structures. The Foundry is a place where the hard work you put in will allow you to mold the fittest, best version of yourself.
