Armed with various facilities, group classes, and state-of-the-art equipment, 24 Hour Fitness molds amorphous adobe muscles into rock-solid flesh houses. The clubs come divided into different types; two of the locations are of the active category, with cardio equipment, free weights, and strength machines, or the sport type, which may offer indoor lap pools, full-sized basketball courts, and saunas. The gym also hosts group exercise classes in all locations so social gym junkies can motivate each other and debate Dostoyevsky’s original diet plan. Group cycling sessions burn calories and increase energy levels, and hip-hop and the Latin dance-influenced Zumba classes present fun, dynamic alternatives to slim meat suits.
In addition to its wide variety of gym amenities, 24 Hour Fitness hosts a knowledge base of online nutrition info and experienced staff members eager to impart workout wisdom. Or, for an additional fee, a personal trainer can create custom workouts tailored to the member's fitness goals or fourth-favorite Jock Jam.
