Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 2,000 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year.

Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.

Two-time national boxing champion and certified NCCP Level 1 coach Ryan Rannelli offers personal-training sessions, wing chun classes, and anaerobic workouts. There's one thing he doesn't offer, however, and that's excuses.
?There?s always excuses that you can find (to not work out),?

The grappling gurus at Gravity Climbing Gym take a friendly approach to instruction during their Indoor Rock 101 class, stressing fun over heights achieved and safety over everything. Knowledgeable instructors outfit ascendant amateurs in a harness and shoes before showing them the ropes, knots, and belay skills required to scale with safety and success. Like medical school, a single lesson at Gravity equips students with enough information to strike out on their own. After completing the lesson, newly christened climbers are free to roam the gym and test their technique on Gravity's varied climbing walls.
