Brimming with Matrix fitness equipment, free weights, and muscle-toning cable machines, Nova Gyms inspires guests to build well-rounded workouts that incorporate strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. Friendly staffers welcome exercisers of all levels with gratis equipment orientations, teaching them how to board stair-steppers safely and reason with surly dumbbells. Fitness seekers customize presses and lifts at the functional trainer, which lets them add or subtract weights at their convenience.

Guests can also gallop on treadmills equipped with 15-inch personal TVs to keep their minds occupied while their bodies get sweaty.
