About Us

Edgewater Athletic Club is a full-service neighborhood gym offering strength training, free weights, cardio, yoga and fitness classes, a steam room, massage therapy and personal training services, plus a 20-yard indoor pool.

Housed in the historic Sovereign Hotel, now The Sovereign Apartments at 1040 W. Granville Avenue, the club is nestled in the heart of Chicago’s Edgewater community. The hotel’s original Grand Ballroom has been preserved and transformed into a unique, well-equipped gym, while the five-lane pool hosts all levels of swimmers and various types of swim instruction and classes. We are conveniently located just two blocks from the Granville CTA red line stop, with free parking also available nearby.

Edgewater Athletic Club is available for memberships, class packages, day passes or drop-ins. Memberships include use of the entire club, including the gym, pool, steam room and regular class schedule. Call us to find out more about our memberships, activities and programs, or stop in today and take a quick tour.
