Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.
You won't find complicated membership requirements, fad workouts with no pay-off, or unfriendly equipment at Fitness 19. Instead, you'll find a gym that, for more than a decade, has met its goal: to be an affordable, family-friendly workout center. Here, members have access to a wealth of free weights and Life Fitness cardio equipment in the form of treadmills, stairclimbers, and ellipticals. They can also take advantage of personal-training sessions that pair them with professionals who help them reach their goals, whether that be weight loss or becoming the body double of Michelangelo's David.
