Dear Flirty Girl,
My name is Candace Lucas. I sending this email to say a long overdue THANK YOU!!! You have no idea how I felt at home at Flirty Girl. I came to Flirty Girl as a "Guest Membership" (it was a promotional membership - 5 classes) in 2011. This was a very difficult time in my life, I am a Breast Cancer patient and SURVIVOR!!! Needing to do something to cheer myself up (chemotherapy during that time) I came to Flirty Girl. I found the atmosphere friendly and fun. Each instructor and staff member was warm, friendly and fun! I must say I was very partial to Jaydin - she was a wonderful instructor and made me feel sexy and light - the weight of the world was upon my shoulders daily with my battle. I learned lap dance and XXX Power Strip, it was a great low impact workout and informative. LOL!!!
You have no idea how great the Flirty Girl Staff and Instructors made me feel and how welcomed I was to the facility. It meant so much to me. I had lost my hair and was not feeling myself. No one looked twice (I looked great bald looking back) but the experience gave me confidence. Flirty Girl was apart of my fight and journey. Thank you for being there for me without even knowing it - meant so much! Thank you for being there for other women like me who battle this disease. Although my journey continues, this year I will celebrate 3 years CANCER FREE!!! It has not been easy many turns since Flirty Girl, but you were there when for me when it was most dark and needed.
Keep up the GOOD WORK that you do!!! Jaydin inspired me to find my inner sexy and I thank her immensely!!! Kudos to Flirty Girl!!
Very Truly Yours,
E. Candace Lucas
Unfortunately I am in the far southwest 'burbs so getting to the club on a regular basis isn't feasible, but I ordered the home setup and I'm loving it!! I've only done 3 of the DVDs so far (doing all the floor ones, working up to the pole) and I have to say that the Abs & Booty one KILLED ME. I did it Thursday and yesterday I swear to you I almost couldn't walk. Wow. I love that it's so much fun and it doesn't feel like a workout until the next day when you realize you've worked muscles you didn't know you had. Also, I think it's funny that there are house projects I have been bugging my husband to finish for years, but he had NO problem getting the pole installed the first day it arrived!!!

Being a married woman with 2 small children and a professional career, I have historically found it difficult to make the time to work out and keep in shape. Traditional programs have never been able to keep my attention for more than a couple of months and 'dieting' has never been a part of my vocabulary. Last year, I stumbled upon Flirty Girl Fitness after joking around with a co-worker and decided to try it out for myself. I tried a pole dancing workshop, found it to be so much fun and much more difficult than I had expected. I was instantly intrigued and decided to try more classes in an effort to get better. What I quickly realized, however, is that I wasn't strong enough and lacked the dance experience to do what I saw others doing in class. Luckily, being at Flirty Girl Fitness, I had other resources to tap into. I decided to take strength training classes, fitness classes, boxing classes, and a whole lot of dance classes. As quickly as I decided to expand my workout repertoire, I started losing weight... and a lot of it. Soon, working out became part of my daily routine and I was finally able to stick to a workout program that I enjoyed doing. I was having so much fun attending classes that it didn't feel like 'work'. I was having fun and enjoying the company of new friends I had met at the gym.
After being at Flirty Girl Fitness for less than a year, I have lost a total of 25 pounds (and counting)... most of which I had lost in the first 4 months of my membership. I've become leaner, stronger, and I've learned a thing or two about pole dancing (laugh). The stereotypical ideology that pole dancing only belongs in strip clubs, holding the interest of lewd men, is now no longer part of my belief. In my opinion, pole dancing and ALL the classes offered at Flirty Girl Fitness empower women (of all shapes/sizes/ages) to strive to be the healthy person they have every potential to be... and have a lot of fun getting there!
I have to admit flirty girl fitness has the appeal of something out of a Barbie Doll's manufacturing warehouse; however it is definitely one of Chicago's best kept secrets. I've had the pleasure to visit several times on some drop-in classes and my experience has been one that has left an impression like none other. Not only was the work-out rigorous, but you're comfortable and empowered at the same time. I'm not what you would call a "work-out guru", but the atmosphere and team of people make you hunger for more. The best thing in it is after you've completed your work-out you get to enjoy there fabulous spa services, that's like having the best of both worlds! I definitely recommend Flirty and feel all but privileged to have them make there mark in Chicago.
Before visiting the Flirty Girl Spa, I seldom visited nail salons. I was never satisfied with the manis and pedis that I received at other salons, so I thought "why bother?". That is definitely not the case with the Flirty Girl Spa! From my first visit to the spa, I was addicted. The manicures and pedicures are the best that I have had. The staff at the Flirty Girl Spa is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Jennifer, Fergie and Erica have definitely made my previous visits to spa enjoyable. They are each so outgoing; they definitely make the spa feel like an exclusive party all the time. It's a great feeling to sit in the plush, pink chairs after a long day at work or a challenging workout and know that the staff of the spa will help me relax. I want to thank each and everyone of the staff members at the Flirty Girl Spa, for enhancing my overall gym experience. I will definitely be back each and every month to be part of the party. And please be sure to keep the Flirtinis flowing!
I love the mani's and pedi's at flirty girl! Sometimes I have one to feel rejuvenated after a rigorous workout while other times I might get a pedicure before a yoga class so that I can enjoy looking at my perfect toenails during class! Either way, it's a top notch salon. The nail girls at flirty girl are some of the best nail technicians I've ever had and I don't know what they do but my nails always dry quickly and the color lasts longer than any other salon. Best part- you can even have a drink during the pampering for an ultimate experience.
I have always wanted to lose weight but dreaded going to the gym. The machines at the gym were so boring and I was tired of seeing people around me that already had the "perfect" body. One day, my friends and I decided to take a lap dance class at Flirty Girl Fitness. We thought this would be a fun class but did not expect to "workout" in the class.
We had a great time learning new moves with lap dancing and exercising at the same time. At that point, I knew this was the type of gym that could change my life. I joined Flirty Girl Fitness in February 2008 and since then, I have lost a total of 17pounds and gained tons of confidence and endurance. This is in addition to eating right and with the support of the caring instructors at Flirty Girl Fitness. The classes are fun, invigorating, and keep you wanting to come back for more. I have the opportunity to execise, get pampered at the SPA, and have a flirtini at one location....it can't get better than that.
I visited Chicago for a week 15-21Apr08 and during my stay I attended several classes at the Flirty Girl Fitness gym. I wanted to state that I had an exceptional experience! The staff was very accommodating and friendly - two young ladies even waited with me during my first night for a cab - even though it arrived after the gym had closed. The instructors were both beautiful and knowledgeable, I learned quite a bit from their choreography! My only suggestion would be to have dry erase boards in each room so people could know what class was going on at what time, the name of the instructor, and perhaps the song they were using. The stylish clocks in the rooms didn't seem functional either =( Nobody could seem to state the right time. Either way its a shame that only two studios exist at the moment, I truly believe it could be a very lucrative business move. Please know that the staff/instructors at the Chicago Flirty Girl Fitness gym is outstanding - even the janitorial staff was great! the towels always seemed to be plentiful and the facility spotless. The smoothies were very tasty too. Thank you for a wonderful time and I look forward to visiting again the next time I find myself in Chicago.
With warmest aloha,

A sincere thanks for providing us with such a wonderful experience at Flirty Girl Fitness. I was not sure what to expect - and believe me I never envisioned myself "pole dancing". But from the second I walked in, the environment was certainly conducive to feeling comfortable and get in a great work out with a group of girlfriends. You obviously invested in every area of FGF -- from the decor, to the teachers and staff, and the spa was just the icing on the cake.

We recently had one of my friend's bachelorette party at Flirty Girl where we were treated incredibly well. Kerry and her team went above and beyond to make sure our experience was memorable. We had an amazing time in the pole dancing class and it was such a fun treat to have manicures and pedicures! Everyone went out of their way to make sure everyone felt comfortable and relaxed. Flirty Girl is by far one of the best places to have a bachelorette party!

Hey Ladies of Flirty Girl, I signed up three months ago and just had to tell
you all thank you!!!!! For the first time in my life I actually look forward
to going to the gym- it's such a blast, I'm actually sad if I miss a day!
The hip hop classes, cardio dance and salsalicious are my favorites- keep it
up! And I have to tell you that I think Monica is outstanding, she has the
best classes and my favorite routines, and I really get a great work out. In
fact I've ditched school a couple times just because I wanted to attend her
Tuesday night class (probably shouldn't admit that...) can't wait til I'm
done with school so I can take House Music Honeys which is my other favorite
class. Keep up the great work- and thank you!
