We typically honor our award recipients during IHRSA’s International Annual Convention & Trade Show. While this year’s event was sadly canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, we still want to recognize FFC Oak Park for their many achievements.

The Outstanding Community Service Award is presented annually to an IHRSA member that has made a long-standing commitment to making a difference in and beyond their community. FFC Oak Park in Illinois is the recipient of the 2020 award.

Since opening in 2007, Fitness Formula Clubs’ Oak Park location has demonstrated a passion for helping people, through event hosting, sponsorship, and generous giving.

"We are honored to receive the 2020 IHRSA Community Service Award. FFC makes a commitment, even before we open our doors, by partnering with organizations that have a long-standing positive impact in the communities we serve. We are truly humbled by the recognition,” said Jeff Long, regional director of operations.

In honoring FFC Oak Park with this award, IHRSA gratefully acknowledges Gale Landers, founder and CEO of Fitness Formula Clubs, and the company’s dedication to the communities served by their 11 Chicago-area clubs.
