"Fitness for the Everyday Person." Used by other gyms, that slogan might seem gimmicky, but Right Now Fitness does its best to live up to that ideal. For one, the fitness center offers both morning and evening classes, as well as 24-hour access so people with busy schedules can fit in a workout on its cardio and strength-training equipment. And clients who are just embarking on their journey to fitness can learn a challenging yet doable cardio circuit from an instructor free of charge, while personal trainers help others do a deep dive into various exercises.

The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening Shaolin kung-fu class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Opening doors for 24 hours a day, seven days a week is an exhausting proposition for any doorman, unless he's a robot. That's why Anytime Fitness—having redirected its robot budget into tanning beds, cardio equipment with built-in TVs, and Precor weight machines—installed a keycard-activated security system instead. The electronic guardian keeps gym members secure while admitting them at any time of day or night for their workouts.
During daylight hours, certified instructors incinerate calories with Les Mills–designed group fitness classes or Latin-inspired Zumba dancercise. Personal trainers coach clients in one-on-one sessions, tailoring regimens to each individual's level of fitness, past injuries, or number of tentacles. To relax after workouts, staffed tanning beds stand by to bronze bodies, while water-jet-powered HydroMassage beds blast away tension.

At Results Personal Enhancement Studio, a personal-training client isn’t paired up with just any staff member. Instead, the training staff—made up of both men and women—takes time to choose clients whose fitness goals match their skill sets. They can also draw up nutrition plans and at-home workouts for clients so that they see changes as quickly as possible. The studio’s fully equipped, brightly colored space houses Cybex cardio machines and FreeMotion and Hampton weight-training equipment, as well as a private locker room.
