Primetime Fitness's staff may consist of personal trainers and nutritionists, but they take their philosophical cue from postmen, delivering results 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The cardio theater – with TVs blaring entertainment – and the strength training room remain perpetually ready to sculpt bodies. The on-site nutrition and supplement store stays open during normal business hours. Members can work up a sweat with mechanical assistance or under the watchful eye of a trainer in group fitness classes such as Zumba or TurboKick. The staff also supplement workouts with nutritional coaching for weight loss, which includes meal plans and weekly weigh-ins.
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling.
For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.

Calorie burning and muscle building options abound with Life Time Fitness’s impressive array of cardio machines, free weights, and resistance training equipment. Night owls and sleep-swimmers alike will appreciate Life Time Fitness’s 24/7 open door policy. Complimentary lockers and towels sweeten the experience with storage space for your keys and a new patch for your perspiration quilt. Post-work out, relax in the sauna or get pampered at the LifeSpa & Salon.
At Forum Fitness Center, people build brawn in group classes hosted within a training facility replete with free weights, cardio machines, and a 60-foot indoor swimming pool. Fleet-footed exercisers can run laps around the ghosts of their slower selves on the indoor track, and those who prefer stationary exercise can sweat it out on cardiovascular machines. Iron pumpers can work with free weights—solo or under the supervision of personal trainers—to mold a physique more perfectly sculpted than Michelangelo's homemade garden gnome. Each week, the spacious studios house more than 25 group fitness classes, including yoga, Zumba, spinning, and Body Sculpt, during which thumping music scores a kinetic blend of weight-room exercises.
