Accessible 24/7 via keycard, membership to Snap Fitness’s top-of-the-line cardio and strength equipment comes with consultations designed to fine-tune fitness plans. The fitness score, determined by a test measuring strength, cardio, and flexibility levels and a medical-history review, helps clients unveil the areas in need of improvement or covered in blueberry jam. Baseline recorded, dual personal-training sessions pair patrons with a degreed trainer to assess personal health goals and develop a customized, total-body workout plan. Trainers start each session with equipment orientation and a basic workout to outline a regimen of intensive exercises. When ready to enact fitness outlines, clients can arrive super late at any of Snap’s worldwide locations and pound the treadmill at four in the morning, gaining access to the cosmic energy normally doled out to morning shock-jock radio DJs. Even when visiting during conventional hours, Snap’s friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes exercisers of all stripes.
