Thread: Quads Gym - Chicago
03-29-2010, 10:02 AM #16
Quads north (in the city) is known for a slightly limp wristed crowd. This probably has to do with the general area. I've never trained there but I've known Dave DeYoung (owner)for 25 years. He and Tommy Malonovich owned the first Quads which was in Thornton Illinois (on the quarry). The Thornton gym moved to Calumet City and has been there for a long time. It is a hardcore gym owned by some non lifter guy that I've met but don't really know. Great gym in a crappy area, they need to move it again. Yes the rates are crazy but I think they are still relying on the reputation Quads had. There was a giant sign back in the day that read "LAND OF THE GIANTS" that hung inside the gym over the mirrors. Quads is also known as the home of the great Ed Coan. Ed is in his mid 40's now and is arguably the greatest powerlifter that ever lived.

rudy's isnt in joliet its in chanahon (sp) that probably why you never seen it there. frantz is about 5-10 minutes from jakked.
rudy went to joliet catholis thats why people think the gym is in joliet. he has really weird hours though.

I trained legs at Quads (north) before leaving Chicago on Friday.
The size of Quads Gym is very deceptive. There is one room after another full of equipment (Nebula, Hammer Strength, Strive, Nautilus, Cybex, etc). It is hardcore and has everything a bodybuilder could want in a gym.

Finally got to train at Quads - found the free parking, which is good, but I also found the bus that would get me there if needed. I've got a membership at the XSport chain but think I'm gonna hit this place for weekend leg devastation!
