Got Resolutions? Fifteen Rental Buildings With Fancy Gyms

View as Map

In honor of Fitness Weekhappening NOW on Racked Chicago— and the tradition that is resolving to work out more in January, we now present 15 options for getting to the gym without leaving your rental building.

Indoor pools, a golf simulator, and a sauna can be yours!
