Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 1,800 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. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they?re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. 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.
Studio 321 Fitness and Dance's facility houses multiple air-conditioned dance studios within its 4,500 square feet of space. These amenities, though, only scratch the surface. Here, more than a dozen veteran Zumba and dance instructors host classes six days per week. They help students burn calories with fast-paced dance-fitness sessions, or focus more on technique with instruction in partnered salsa and Argentinian tango. And to accommodate their cardholding gym members they also provide complimentary childcare, making attendance extra easy for parents or adults who are actually just three kids sitting on each other's shoulders inside a trench coat.
Elite Health Centers LLC's current owner began as a regular gym member. After group training programs helped him lose nearly 100 pounds, he made moves to acquire the facilities. Today, the premises help members get in shape with more than 100 classes a month and plentiful equipment for cardiovascular conditioning, circuit training, and weight training. Members also receive the benefits of ancillary services such as childcare, tanning, and massage therapy.
