Accessible 24/7 via keycard, membership to Snap Fitness’s top-of-the-line cardio and strength equipment comes with a duo of consultations designed to fine-tune fitness plans. The fitness score, determined by strength, cardio, and flexibility conditions, helps clients unveil the areas in need of improvement or the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines once and for all. With a baseline recorded, the Basic 8 consultation pairs patrons with a personal trainer to assess personal health goals and develop a 30-minute total-body workout plan.
When ready to enact fitness outlines, clients can arrive super late at any of Snap’s worldwide locations and pretend they’re working out in an Edward Hopper painting, or they can pound the treadmill at four in the morning and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show. Even when visiting during conventional hours, Snap’s friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes exercisers of all stripes.
The sounds of pumping weights and bodies in motion echo 24/7 as Snap Fitness members work out at whatever time fits their schedule. A refundable $25 access card gives members the freedom to come and go as they please. Ample staffed hours allow exercisers to develop custom workouts alongside supportive personal trainers or holograms of Richard Simmons. Virtual Active treadmills display videos from the Grand Canyon, state parks, or Chicago’s scenic streets to challenge runners with a variety of terrain types, and MyRide virtual cycling machines coach riders with virtual trainers in HD-quality videos.
