Head trainer Jeff Cox—a certified instructor and nutrition counselor at Zach’s Club 54—believes that fitness is about more than just the body, stating that “fitness is a positive approach to life incorporating physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual aspects…” This rounded approach to well-being pervades throughout the 35,000-square-foot facility, which cultivates a fun and communal atmosphere to workout, socialize, compete, and play within. Cutting-edge strength-training equipment from brands such as Precor and Hammerstrength bolster muscle mass, a well-stocked cardio theater entertains while quickening heartbeats, three racquetball courts host matches between friends, and an indoor pool welcomes both lap-minded exercises and splash-happy tots. A specialized cycling room and a 2,000-square-foot fitness studio—which houses an array of instructor-led group classes such as yoga, BodyCombat, and Turbo Kick—also send sweat glands into overdrive. A trio of personal trainers, which collectively boast NGA and ISSA certification, stands by to help willing exercisers formulate and achieve individual fitness goals.

Located on notoriously twisted Route 66, a derelict movie theater has become the stomping grounds of the McKill family—a criminally insane brood with a predilection for torture and murder. The site is filled with horrific vignettes: piles of human skulls, walls stained with gory handprints, and funerals attended by the dead.
Down the theater's dilapidated halls specters stalk interlopers, awaiting the right moment to jump out and shock—but never touch—their prey. The location has appeared on the Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story, where numerous suspected apparitions were caught in the act.
