At Sound Fitness, one can almost hear the calories sizzle. Ample rows of bikes, ellipticals, and other cardio equipment let guests build strong, healthy hearts without feeling pressured to give up their machines to other guests or movie cops needing to commandeer treadmills. To propel exercisers toward their goals, certified personal trainers plot custom workout plans and demonstrate how to build specific muscle groups with the free weights and strength-training machines. Babysitters corral pintsize visitors while their parents jog and pedal, and shower-lined locker rooms keep watch over clothes and gym bags to make sure they don't wander home.

The first time Lisa Leonard took a Zumba class, it was the fastest hour of her life. She’d had a blast, and it inspired her to become a certified instructor.

Since 1976, Stone's Gym & Fitness Center has sculpted Bay Area bodies into leaner, tougher human shapes. While the gym has been around for a generation, its equipment hasn’t—updated exercise machines from Precor and other tested brands populate the workout room’s bright hardwood floors. Stationary cycles keep blood rushing through veins, and strength-training machines match reps with row upon row of traditional free weights. The gym hosts a suite of group fitness classes that boost well-being as well as camaraderie, and introduces kids to the onsite pool during swim lessons that teach water safety and the internationally standardized rules of Marco Polo.
