Fitness Formula Clubs is a full-service fitness center offering group fitness and personal training with nine locations in the heart of Chicago, Illinois. In August 2009, Fitness Formula Clubs (FFC) added the Presidential Towers Health Club to its network of Chicago-land locations.
At this time, FFC retained Counsilman-Hunsaker, in association with Antunovich Associates, to provide a swimming pool audit on the 26-year-old lap pool and spa at the West Loop location, situated on the third floor of the Presidential Towers building.
The audit identified items that are substandard with the pool and spa, identified items not compliant with Illinois swimming pool code or current industry swimming pool design standards, and determined if equipment is operating as designed. New swimming pool technology was discussed to assist with current challenges experienced in relation to operating the pool. A goal of the audit report was to assist in defining a course of action regarding the future of the pool. In addition, this report prioritized recommended repairs to bring the pool up to current swimming pool codes and industry design standards.
In 2010, the Counsilman-Hunsaker/Antunovich Associates team was once again retained to design a new 20’ x 60’ pool relaxation pool on the outside terrace deck. The current facility is being completely renovated and expanded to 52,000 square feet on two levels, more than double its current size. The new pool will consist of an in-pool lounge area, water volleyball and a flowing water feature.
