    For those that haven't been there, I would seriously suggest checking it out.

    Here's a list of some of the more hardcore equipment
    2 Mono-lifts
    2 Competition benchs (not the only benchs though)
    Power Rack
    about 6 sets of different height blocks for deadlifting
    deficit deadlift platform
    Dumbells up to 210lbs
    Large selection fo atlas stones, sandbags, and kegs
    Tires
    Power Stairs
    Loading platform for stones and kegs
    Yoke
    Large selection of bands and chains
    Farmers walk handles
    Logs for pressing
    Kettlebells
    Glute Ham Raise
    2 Prowler sleds
    Plate loaded pulldown machine
    Viking Press (if that's the correct name)
    Tons of specialty bars
    2 Smith racks, and a third one that can move forward and back as instead of just up and down
    2 Hack squat machines
    2 plate loaded leg presses
    Other strongman shit that I don't even know what to call it
    100lb plates
    T-bar row

    And there is a lot more at the gym then just what I listed

    This is by far the best gym for the Chicago Suburbs, my gf lives ten minutes from there and I love goin and blitzing the weights and not having to drive all over creation. Good people great equipment nuff said

    i love this place too but i would get a better pulldown and get a seated cable row unit. also a pwer cage in the bodybuilding room would be nice. you cant really do rack pulls there.

    the cable row is cheap and you have to sit on the floor which is fine but the stack only goes to 200 so you have to do high reps on the exercise

    No way, the pulldown they have there is awesome, it's plate loaded and I don't think I will ever be able to max it out.

    Team Silverback (sp) from Jakked Gym was at a show that I was recently in... they were some big mother fuckers.

    This is the best gym around! The members are wonderful, the atmosphere is old school hardcore and the owners are the greatest people! If you haven't trained at Jakked you are missing out!

    Can't say enough good things about JAKKED! I tell more people about JAKKED than probably my own business! Bit of a drive, but I get there..late or not. Everyone should go there at least once. Laid back & simple. What you see is what you get. Best place ever if you are into Strongman or Powerlifting hands down. Byron & Tami rock..trainers rock..Alex & Joe who I work with now for Powerlifting. If it were not for Jakked I may never have realized I like Powerlifting and doing my first meet in a few weeks!
