On the bottom floor of Civic Center Fitness, exercisers change clothes and shower before heading over to the weight room on the same level. On the second floor, they get their hearts beating on treadmills and cardio equipment. But there's even more cardio equipment on the top floor, along with a group cycling room, an aerobic room, and a stretching area, giving the center a diverse array of workout options. Experienced trainers only add to the offerings, as do convenient closed-captioned TVs.
Voted Best Gym in the Bay Area 2011 by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, World Gym San Francisco is home to plentiful cardio and weight machines, group fitness classes, and chiropractic care facilities. After receiving a towel in the sea foam-green lobby, guests set foot in one of the gym's spacious exercise rooms to stretch on mats while waiting for exercise balls to hatch into personal trainers. Inside cardio rooms equipped with flat screen TVs, guests can catch up on news while their hearts catch up on skipped beats.
Steam rooms and dry saunas relax bodies tuckered from group classes such as boxing, spin, and yoga. A cafe vends fresh smoothies approved by the gym's nutrition programs, and a tanning bed bronzes newly toned physiques.
