Our Facility

We’re centrally located just West of Chicago, in Elmhurst, IL, near the I-290 & I-294 merge, and just minutes from both O’Hare and Midway Airports. Our 5,000 square foot facility has been carefully planned to make sure that you have access to the tools and equipment you need to get stronger, faster and more mobile. We’re outfitted with the best equipment on the market, from our custom 30 foot Pure Strength rig to our perfectly-knurled barbells.

Our main training space features our indestructible steel rig for all your basic strength, gymnastic and bodyweight work, including lifting stations, ropes, handstand pushup stations, pull-up bars and rings. We also have rowers and Assault AirBikes for conditioning work, as well as mobility tools, and a GHD. We’re constantly on the lookout for the best equipment for our athletes, but we believe that sometimes, the most effective thing is a barbell and a good attitude.

In addition, we offer fitness & health products for sale to our members, as well as the general public. Stop by for exclusive Big Shoulders CrossFit merchandise, as well as products from Blonyx, KillCliff and more.

I feel strong for the first time in my life. There are actually muscles in my arms! I can see my improvements in the gym translating into being a physically and mentally stronger person outside of the gym. I don’t give up when things are hard now.
The community at Big Shoulders is unlike any other. Extremely warm, inviting and encouraging to all athletes of any level
