I can't say enough about POW. I joined about a year ago and it has been life changing for my strength, conditioning, balance and just overall well-being.  The coaches are outstanding and take care to learn different students' capabilities then adjust workouts individually as needed. As a complete newbie when I started, this made me feel safe and comfortable in trying all these new things. Everyone both working and attending the gym have  been warm and welcoming from my first day.  I highly recommend checking it out!

I'm a repeat customer. Outstanding owners and staff, some of the best I've met in the fitness and self defense world. The class offerings are on point, diverse, and continually evolving. Their commitment to the success and growth of their customers is amazing. It's truly personalized. They take into account your ability, experience, and goals while nicely pushing your boundaries. The training sessions can be intense but the atmosphere is casual, fun and relaxed. The facility is impressive, spacious, clean, convenient, and well maintained. Great equipment, well stocked with quality machines and gear. POW is also active in the community including helping veterans. Great team, great place, great outcomes.

Having been a member of 5 different gyms (2 strength/conditioning, 1 wrestling, 1 boxing, 1 MMA) I’ve found POW to be the cleanest, most professional, welcoming, and accessible gym by far.

There are at least three other reasons for why POW is an excellent gym:

1. POW has the equipment and space I need to do any of the aforementioned activities (Strength/conditioning, wrestling, boxing, MMA).
2. The owner clearly only hires qualified staff who contribute to the professional/welcoming environment.
3.  I have seen both families and high-level athletes in this gym. It takes a certain kind of gym to accommodate both.

That being said, I have no problem stating that POW is the single best gym in West Loop.

If I recall correctly, I have only ever written 2 Google reviews in my life. The reason why I took the time to write this one is so that you can join POW, give them business, and keep them around so I can continue to enjoy this gym for years to come.

I have been working with POW for many years.  I have taken brakes on and off.  I always come back home, lol.  I’m in good hands.  I love the  kind and knowledgeable trainers.  I’ve trained with many of them in class and 1-1.  Every single one of them brings something unique and awesome to the table.  My favorite is Lizzy, she’s knowledgeable, in tune with me & meets me where I’m at! You can learn so much here.  They have a little bit for everyone no matter your level of fitness.  Enjoy! Try  this wonderful place, I’m there weekly and say  πŸ‘‹ this is my face after a session! 😜

I absolutely love this place for a kids bday party!!! The staff was super friendly with all of the kids and super helpful. Dealing with 25 plus kids is no easy task but they were absolute troopers and handled them like champs. I wld absolutely recommend POW Gym for any kids party. I love them so much that this was our second year in a row hosting my daughter's bday there! Great job guys!!!


Gail Selleg

Sprint track, room with mats that cover the entire floor, kick boxing things, great for kids parties and Clean Bathrooms! Yay!

Pow Gym and Parisi Speed school are great! They tailor the programs from ages 2-99. They teach you actually methods and break it down rather then just have you aimlessly trying to figure out on your own. My son is training off season for baseball and getting stronger and faster. Brennan also teaches the importance of nutrition but most of all respect. I've taken some of the boxing classes and to say they work you is an understatement. It's the best feeling to hear a left hook take place. Staff is awesome. Supportive and not your run of the mill gym.

I first trained at POW! seven years ago. It was a friendly, energetic place then and, when they were kind enough to let me visit for some BJJ sparring when I was back in town for the weekend, I was pleased to find that hadn't changed! The facilities are top notch with lots of amenities, the staff are knowledgeable and professional, and tough training partners abound. Come and see for yourself!


Anthony Do

Definitely one of the best training and martial arts facilities in Chicago. They also have great friendly staff.

Just beginning the journey with POW Gym. My 13 yr old daughter had her fitness evaluation with Brennan and Sue! Both were awesome. My daughter especially loved the music, they asked her what she liked and played her faves, this, always helps when working out. Monday starts the two week introduction. I'll holla back when I know more.

I go in the mid-morning. It's quiet and mostly empty. The staff is friendly. It's clean and they have all the equipment I need for my Crossfit-style workout.


Laura Sofia

Took a defense workshop set up by my employer. What an empowering, incredible experience! I can't wait to go back and bring my friends along.
