At Snap Fitness’ 24-hour gym, guests come and go armed with their access keys and are able to work out at their convenience. Around the gym, rows of cardio machines and stacks of free weights stand by as personal trainers show guests the most efficient ways to pump iron and bench-press their old refrigerators.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Studio Soiree takes the age-old art of pole dancing and supes it up with a bevy of core-training techniques. Certified instructors kick off pole education with an initiative course required of all beginners. In Intro to Pole, students learn how to safely maneuver on and around the pole while developing elementary dance moves. Five advancing course levels follow, each building toward an eventual masters degree in anti-gravitational gumption. Studio Soiree provides a welcoming environment for students of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels, and most classes are exclusively for women. Reservations are required, as admission is offered on a first-to-sign-up, first-served basis.
After ascending towering kitchen countertops, bunk beds, and dangerous shoelace-engulfing escalators, the next logical conquest for serious climbers is a rock wall. Rockreation Sport Climbing Center offers 7,500 square feet of sculpted climbing terrain that firms forearms and strengthens finger holsters into walnut-crushing wall motors. During a one-month membership (a $58 value, with an included $39 enrollment fee), climbers will have unlimited access to 45-foot-high walls, bouldering areas, and top rope challenges while improving fitness and shedding gravity’s shackles. Weight machines and cardiovascular equipment are available to help nurture the core strength of a free-climbing gecko, while included climbing equipment outfits members with fashionable gear envied by fashion-forward mountain goats. Before you hit the rocks, Rockreation's experienced instructors will provide helpful climbing tips during one introductory Fight Gravity class (level 1, 2, or 3, depending on experience), included in your new membership. As an added bonus, if you decide to continue your membership beyond your first month, your $39 enrollment fee will be permanently waived.
