Group fitness classes give participants a way to try a variety of workout styles, and personal trainers are on hand to help members maximize their time, whether they're running on a treadmill or using it as a napping bench. The cardio theater supplies a variety of sweat-inducing options, and saunas provide a place to recuperate and let your muscles cry after a good workout.
Saunas. Spas. A caf? and lounge. There are plenty of places to relax within?Sierra Athletic Club, but its members have a hard time sitting still. Also inside the club, certified personal trainers guide clients through high-intensity workouts in the 3,000-square-foot Power Plant. Work out mavens congregate for cross training classes, incorporating the likes of kettlebells, TRX straps, bands, wall balls, plyo boxes, rowing machines, and other equipment designed to keep workouts fresh and engaging. Individual athletes or teams can also come together for sport-specific training exercises led by trainers who specialize in everything from sport/position-specific training, rehabilitation, weight loss and senior fitness.
?On the other side of the athletic club, clients have access to two weight rooms, cardio machines, and areas?for?athletic competition. Nine tennis courts stand outside next to a?swimming?pool, where members can practice laps or train for a run on the underwater chess circuit. Indoors, rubber balls?bounce around seven?racquetball courts. Sierra Athletic Club keeps its workouts flexible. Members can exercise on their own, or enroll in more?structured programs.

Cliff Drysdale, a 45-time Davis Cup veteran, is more than a familiar face in professional tennis?he's one of its signature voices as well, having spent more than 30 years commentating matches on ESPN. Students of his coaching system get to tap into that deep well of experience at In-Shape Sport clubs all across California. At each location, experienced tennis pros lead four-week clinics that cover the fundamentals of the sport, organize competitive leagues for more advanced players, and tailor lessons to teens. Additionally, tennis socials help guests practice the sport as they meet fellow players and use particularly ferocious serves to deliver their phone number to an opponent.
SOS Club is an unusually luxurious take on a gym—for one, there's an on-site bar and restaurant. For another, there's not one swimming pool, but three, including a heated one. The array of sports courts, meanwhile, ranges from tennis courts to basketball ones. For a group workout, members can also take to the group fitness studios, for sessions of mini-ball Zumba, Pilates, yoga, or pirate toga.
