Oprah, Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama and every other Chicago celeb (and wannabe) works out here. Too frou frou for me - when I work out, I want to work out, not put on makeup. But it's fancy shmancy and one feels pretty cool while here.
This place is just wonderful. The Program they have available is well priced, and it works. The overall environment of the office is really professional and caring. The girls who work there are amazing! They didn't just take my money and send me out the door, they really cared about my weight loss and overall health. I recommend this to anyone trying to lose weight effectively.
Worst Management - Simon Meredith. I went to visit this club since I just moved into the area. I met with a guy named Eric. At first Eric seemed nice and courteous until he opened his mouth and started saying big lies. "Oh yes, Obama comes here all the time. And Oprah.. This is her favorite place." Well, it's 2012, and we all know neither Obama not Oprah live in Chicago.... What kind of Stupid people work and workout here. GOOD BYE EBC. NEVER. A Bunch of Liars at EBC. I heard so many bad things about this place and I still went there to give them the benefit of the doubt. What a waste of my time. What a shame!!!
Dirty, Gloomy and not up to standards – I was a member at the East Bank Club for some time. I recently canceled my membership and so did many of my friends. This place is nothing like it used to be. It's dirty, old equipment, No sun light, Locker rooms are filthy and old and the food at the restaurants is a shame. I do not recommend this place to anyone. Plus, they charge you a hefty sign up fee, a very high monthly fee from hundreds and up. If you choose to go here, plan to spend thousands of dollars and up to go to a filthy place that is not up to standards. EBC... this is not 1970 anymore. STAY FAR FAR AWAY.
Best membership in the city – Not only is the staff excellent and helpful. This place offers everything from swimming, tennis, classes to spa and dining. Come in here during the winter and never have to leave all day. I would never go anywhere else, this place is top notch!
To all the haters below, you must be generally unhappy with life, your lies don't stand up to this great club. Anyone who comes in or is a member can see that!
Gloomy Gloomy Gloomy – Worst Place to Workout.... This place is a warehouse... not a health club.... $180 a month... No way... Not for a place like this.... This is a total Rip-off. I do not recommend this place to anyone.
Gloomy Gloomy Gloomy – This place is not up to standards. Everything is overpriced... Will not recommend it.
Best and Worst Teachers – Love EBC- amazing.

Restaurants great - top management snobs – I have been a member for years. Convenient to my office. Woman's locker room is clean. Both the restaurant and the grill are top shelf. I do agree with some of the reviewers who say that the top management is a snob. Walks around with a superior unapproachable attitude.
Seem to treat their employees fairly with low turnover.
Think most classes are great although wish they would rotate the times so you could try other classes that are always scheduled at the same time. Like everywhere there are a few bad apples. Shame one is at the top.
Very Dirty. Not worth the $175 per month – I would rather burn my money than waste it in this dirty establishment. I agree with one of the comments. The Gatorade will cost you $5 and smoothie will cost you between $8 and up. you add anything will cost you...
People who work there are very unfriendly. The managers are hypocrites. The members are cocky and snub and think they belong to the higher society. I have news for you. EBC is a dirty gyn with a higher price tag.
