My favorite gym! They are motivating, helpful, and patient. The other students are encouraging, as well. This is the best environment to get back in shape or to take your workout to the next level.

The best place to do CrossFit. Not full of people who are high on competition and low on empathy. Consistency in correct form is valued and has a great family atmosphere.

I had originally reviewed my experience with Crossfit Illumine in late October of last year. As of today, I've been a member for almost six months and completely stand by my five-star review.

Their specialty focus programs are instructed and supervised by some of the best in their area of concentration. I participated in their Olympic Weightlifting Level 1 course and walked away with a better understanding of the fundamentals of the correct body mechanics and form that is utilized in every workout of the day that is offered at convenient times through out the day. Their other programs include kettle bell, rowing, endurance - or fundurance, diet & nutrition, and a masters and legends program for those with a few extra years on their shoulders who are looking for a path to regain the strength and functionality of their younger years.

The daily WOD's are varied and easily accessible via the Wodify app to keep you up to speed if you're on the road or curious to check what's on the docket. It's also handy to check class times and reserve a spot in case there's a popular workout scheduled.

The coaches and members are some of the most salt of the earth people you'll come across. Everyone is beyond approachable and would give you the shirts off their back as quickly as they would give you a few minutes of their time to answer a question or two. Recently, I sustained a knee injury that I thought was going to take me out from participating in daily workouts but as soon as word began to spread, I received messages from almost every coach on plans to keep me moving forward and options to scale my workouts to work around it. It was a very eye opening and reassuring experience to remind me of what a great community Crossfit Illumine has developed since the first time the doors opened.

If you've ever wanted to look into Crossfit as a new approach to your personal fitness or just wanted to see what the hub bub was about, drop them a line or stop into their Niles or Northbrook locations. There'll be a friendly face to greet you.

Place is well equipped and the staff are really friendly. It's not a chrome and mirror type of gym, it's more industrial and no one is there to pose but to work at improving themselves. Kimmy is great and I can't wait for more workouts there! More...

What would I do without this place? Illumine has changed my outlook on life, health and family. The people are what make such a difference. It’s been an amazing year and I can honestly say, there is no other place for my family and I. Caring, Consistent, Disciplined, Positive and Optimistic are just a few characteristics to describe the atmosphere at Illumine. Illumine, where would my life be, had we not stumbled on to you? For that I am eternally grateful. Welcome to your life change. More...

I'm out of shape and I HATE working out, but this place and the people in it have me coming back for more! I was super intimidated to start but everyone here is encouraging and will make you feel at ease and really comfortable. All the coaches are down to earth and truly want to see you succeed. The workouts can suck at times, but you'd be surprised at how much you can do if you just push yourself a little. Everyone here supports each other and that definitely gives you that extra push when you need it the most. More...

I won't lie, at first I was kind of skeptical and quite scared. The stuff I seen on YouTube were things I could never imagine myself ever doing. Until Brian seen my posts and kept on me about joining and trying it. So I decided to try it out back in June 2013. Trust when I say the level and intensity of the workout was something outside my comfort zone. I cried the first week because I was in so much pain. Until I got used to it and loved it ever since. I've met some great people along the way and may I also add the awesome support system you get when you are there. I had to stop due to some aliments but I plan on coming back and staying for as long as I can. You could never go wrong with Brian and Charleen. They both rock and they are great coaches! See you guys soon! More...

You won't really understand how this particular box and the people in it will move you until you get out of your own way and give it a shot.

CrossFit affiliates are hit or miss. Good coaches and owners are key to a good affiliate. CrossFit Illumine hits it out of the park. The facility has everything you need (oly lifting spaces/big Rogue rig/lots of equipment). The programming accommodates all skill levels and they provide one on one training. This translates into a great atmosphere and a true fitness community. The coaches are knowledgable and kept a close eye on all athletes despite a big 0530 class. I will visit again whenever I am in Chicago. More...

My husband and I dropped in while on vacation. We found the staff and members to be welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. We'd recommend Illumine to those on vacation looking for a box and those looking to join CrossFit for the first time. They even offer CrossFit kids though we didn't personally experience this, but think it's cool. More...

I started swimming competitively when I was 5 years old and continued to swim and train throughout high school. By graduation, I was totally burned out on swimming. Ever since then, I've been looking for some kind of training to get me back into shape. A million diets and a dozen different gym memberships later, I found CrossFit Illumine. This place is amazing. For the first time in 25 years, I'm totally motivated to get to the gym and workout. The coaches and staff are professional, knowledgeable and motivating. I've only been there for 7 months, but I'm already in better shape than I've been in over the last 25 years. They've created an atmosphere that makes me want to go to the gym every day. As a bonus, the community there is incredible. I've made many new friends who all have the same goal, to continue to build the best versions of themselves through fitness, heath and community. I'm thankful to be a newer member of the Illumine family and I know this is the last "gym membership" I'll ever need. More...

The coaches and athletes at CrossFit Illumine are the most amazing group of caring, charitable, and passionate people I have ever met. This place is filled with people from all different ages, fitness levels, and backgrounds - and I have become very close to so many of these people. The skills I have learned from Char, Brian and all of the coaches at Illumine go beyond exercise. CrossFit has played an enormous role in building my confidence as a mom, an entrepreneur, and a leader. Thank you CFI! More...

Seriously did not think I would like this when I started in September 2016...but the core group I work out with in the early mornings keep me coming back. Adrian and his wife Grace are awesome coaches as well as all the others that work there. They keep you motivated and realize your abilities and modify the exercises to help with injuries or back problems. I can feel myself getting stronger and I am able to move easier than before I started. You just got to get your butt off the couch and you too will feel better. More...

As a suburban transplant it was hard to gain my stride and get the umph I needed to push myself every time. I went to the gym quite often but became complacent. Not here. The trainers make me want to be better and assist in not just the workouts, but the motivation I was starting to lack. CrossFit or Illumine might not be for everyone, but it is a perfect fit for me. Keep up the great work guys (and gals)! More...

I've been in Northfield staying with friends for the holidays and needed somewhere to train. Rocked up to Crossfit Illumine North for some drop-ins and was made very welcome by coaches Heather, Donny and Kai during five sessions over a week.

Great box with brand new Rogue equipment and Chiropractor Damir on site who I had a session with after one wod. Got to workout with their first set of on-ramp/foundations graduates as well.

Thanks for making me feel welcome and like a long time member for the week.

p.s. Hopefully they'll get a sign up outside so others can find it too ;)

Great opportunity to improve yourself without dedicating your life to fitness. Been pretty easy to stick with this for almost 3 years now because of the great people here. With relatively minimal effort I’ve been able to have steady success.
