Many gyms offer advanced fitness equipment, motivating programs and classes, and a host of amenities. But unlike many conventional gyms, Lady of America Greenbrook caters specifically to women. In spacious, comfortable workout rooms, resistance machines are custom-fit to women’s smaller frames. Trained staff plays with kids 6 months and older in the childcare area, which features health-focused activities as well as a PlayStation 2. The team also offers services such as nutrition counseling with certified sports nutritionists and one-on-one workouts with certified personal trainers. Additionally, fitness evaluations—which come free with every membership—are designed with women’s needs and concerns in mind.
In the gym, free weights build muscle, and recumbent bikes and elliptical machines boost endurance enough to outlast a dolphin or a submarine painted like a dolphin in a swimming contest. The advanced Precor model 956 treadmills’ impact-absorbing system saves joints while an active cardio monitor allows users to literally follow the dictates of their hearts. Instructors provide motivation in group classes such as ball Pilates, fitness yoga, spin, and Zumba. And the therapeutic heat of the infrared sauna allows for a nice post-workout relaxation session.

Should a large-scale alien invasion start snatching up people and businesses with tractor beams, No Body Denied Training Zone would be in no danger of floating away. Approximately 25,000 lbs. of free weights keep the 10,000 square feet of training space rooted. The weighty array makes for well-rounded workouts when combined with a jog on the sprint track. While the gym allows for self-guided workouts, exercisers aren't left to sweat on their own. In addition to offering personal training, the fitness instructors lead more than 80 group fitness classes each week, including cycling and yoga. They even teach classes specifically designed for athletes and kids, who most scientists agree will one day turn into adults.
How do you make CrossFit's notorious workout of the day even more challenging? Well, judging from this video on CrossFit 135's website, you make students complete the squats, body presses, and other functional movements upside down.

Nitro Cycle specializes in indoor cycling, but its stationary bikes suffer from a seemingly fatal flaw—they aren’t stationary. Instead, the RealRyder cycles move from side to side like their real-world counterparts, leaning into turns and tilting as riders pedal. The extra motion ensures that workouts engage and tighten core-stabilizing muscles, rather than just the legs. As students sweat, instructors combat workout boredom with black lights, high-energy music, and simulated adventures on dynamic terrain, such as riding down a mountainside or mounting your exercise bike onto a moving train.
