FitNation© is a 75,000 square foot fitness facility located in the village of Gurnee, Illinois centrally located in Lake County and just off Interstate 94. The facility, opened in November of 2013, is the newest initiative of Gurnee Park District, a municipal taxing agency who serves the community with parks and recreational programs and facilities. FitNation© encompasses an expansive fitness floor with cardio and weight lifting machines and equipment, a large gymnasium, five lane lap pool with hot tubs, performance turf area, TRX™ area, several specialized group exercise studios, childcare room and well appointed locker rooms with sauna and steam rooms (view our amenities page to learn more). Programs include personal training, group exercise classes, aquatic classes, Fit101© Learning Series and so much more!

FitNation© is an evolution in many ways, starting with its beginnings as a former franchised fitness facility with many amenities already existing in the space. While the franchise didn’t remain, the passion from members and staff were the foundation of a new vision. It was out of this foundation that Gurnee Park District created FitNation©.

The space will continue to see updates and modifications with the input of those that matter most, FitNation© members! Our promise to you is an exceptional fitness experience combined with friendly and knowledgeable staff, industry leading equipment and technology and programs that get results.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. If you are not yet a member, there is no better time to join than now. We look forward to serving you soon!

Be Fit. Be Healthy.
