Thanks to the local Wasatch Mountains, Salt Lake City has plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Snowboarding and skiing are popular in the winter, then hiking, camping and fishing keep residents busy in the summer. There are also several indoor fitness centers to choose from too.

Salt Lake City fitness centers Square 1 Fitness and Anytime Fitness are both located on East 2100 Street. Both offer fitness equipment to help achieve weight loss, but that is where the similarities end.

Square 1 Fitness is a small gym that offers personalized services, including customized nutrition, an array of supplements, and a specialized training regiment for each member. With gray carpeting, white walls, and an industrial-like open lattice style ceiling, this gym appears to be a no-frills environment; however, that is not the case. On top of the exercise machines and 24/7 availability, Square 1 Fitness also offers massages, spa services, and skin care treatments.

Anytime Fitness, the other Salt Lake City fitness center on East 2100 Street, offsets its gray carpeting with cheery orange and yellow walls. Anytime Fitness offers aerobics classes, and it has an entire series of exercise machines and free weights. This fitness center is also open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and offers health plan discounts.

For something a little different, Muay Thai Institute Fitness on Wilmington Avenue claims to have the most complete Thai kickboxing center in the entire state of Utah. Muay Thai, described as “the art of eight limbs,” strives to improve its participants’ overall health – both inside and out.

If an injury occurs during a workout, choose from Salt Lake City doctors at one of these hospitals: state-of-the-art Salt Lake Regional Medical Center on East South Temple Street or Saint Mark’s Hospital on East 3900 Street.
