LINCOLN SQUARE — Adrienne Farrell worked out at big-box gyms before she had her first child in 2013. She went back to those gyms after becoming a mom — but their child care options weren’t ideal, she realized.
Soon, Farrell was simply working out at home.
But now, after years of planning, Farrell opened Brush Park Gym, 4646 N. Rockwell St., earlier this month, catering to families with young children who want to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.
Brush Park, right off the Rockwell Brown Line stop, offers cardio equipment, kettlebells, racks and pull-up bars and group fitness classes for grown-ups.

There’s also an outdoor play space, social area and fully stocked, family-friendly bathrooms. Read more HERE
