    HGA Moving to New Location in Glendale Heights

    After ten years at Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center, Hard Gainers Athletics (HGA) has determined that due to their continued growth and need for expansion, the sports performance provider will be relocating to 1120 Main Street, Glendale Heights.

    Since its founding by Clint Foley in 2011, HGA and the Glen Ellyn Park District have been outstanding partners in providing high end sports and fitness training for Glen Ellyn and beyond. Over the years, HGA expanded from a one-person operation out of the second-floor fitness center to a team of trainers centralized out of an 8,000 square foot dedicated training studio on the first floor. Clint and the HGA team have been an integral part of Ackerman SFC, supplementing and complimenting the many services and programs the Park District offers.

    The Glen Ellyn Park District and Ackerman SFC wish Clint Foley and HGA much success with their move and transition, which will be completed by the end of October 2021.

    The space in which HGA currently occupies will be repurposed and programmed by the Glen Ellyn Park District. Look for more details on new programs and services later this fall.

    The District’s first outdoor automated external defibrillator (AED) units have been installed in three parks. Located at Ackerman (two locations), Newton, and Village Green Parks, the AEDs are mounted in a heated and weatherproof cabinet. When removed from the cabinet, a call is placed to 911 to contact emergency personnel. The units will be available in the parks from April through October. Read More »
