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 available 24 hours a day.

At CrossFit 262, John Schmidt?an NCSA certified coach and former All-American wrestler?does the same exercises as a child or a senior citizen. That's because CrossFit varies its workouts by intensity, but not by skill level. During introductory CrossFit 101 sessions, John and the rest of the staff teach newcomers all of the prerequisite movements for classes, including deadlifts, squats, cleans, and rope-climbing. The gym also hosts CrossFit Unloaded classes, which utilize lighter weights and don't require the CrossFit 101 series as a prerequisite.

Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, staff meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength, cardio condition, and bionic-limb manufacturers. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthful eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.

A cluster of ropes cascade from the ceiling to the floor; some are knotted, others are not, but each one bears the weight of an ambitious exerciser climbing his or her way to the top. It?s just another day at CrossFit Lykos, where experienced coaches oversee workouts based in functional-fitness exercises. The expansive gym has enough open space for clients to perfect their Olympic weightlifting form, hang from gymnastics rings, jump onto plyometric wooden boxes, and develop other functional movements.

Rush Performance: Personal Training Studio's certified trainers take positive attitudes and community support so seriously that if you complain during your trial of the Team Rush training program and bring any negativity, you won't be able to join Team Rush. And that would mean not torching hundreds of calories and toning up during strength, cardio, and sports conditioning sessions and high-intensity interval circuits.

Even the personal training requires supporting your fellow exercisers as it usually involves small groups of two to four working out together and forming a human pyramid to place any junk food out of reach. The trainers often use the FitRanX fitness-testing system to determine how fit a person is before they start Rush's programs and to monitor their progress throughout.
