Want to Get Fit? Try These National Health Club Chains Today

List: Posted: 01/16/12

If you are looking to get fit in the New Year, then a membership at one of the various health clubs may be the way to go.  It is important, however, to choose the right club.  Here's a quick rundown of the most popular health clubs in the U.S.


One of the top health clubs in the nation is the YMCA.  There are clubs in nearly every city on the map, which offer treadmills, group fitness classes, basketball courts, pools and various types of memberships to fit your needs.  The YMCA is very affordable and is a great place for the whole family to spend time getting fit together.


24 Hour Fitness is another popular national chain, and is true to its name.  It’s open 24 hours a day and offers many different memberships to fit your budget.  Be careful of the smaller gyms, which are deceptively not open at all hours of the day.


Gold’s Gym caters to individuals who are passionate about their craft – exercise.  You will find the heaviest of weights at Gold’s, but they also offer treadmills, elliptical machines and other cardio equipment.  These facilities tend to have various group exercise classes, as well.


MVP Sports Club makes its entire membership base feel like VIPs.  At an MVP you will find medical offices, restaurants, and even ice skating rinks.  They have so many different amenities, from saunas and steam rooms, to showers and pools.  MVP Sports Clubs also have enough exercise equipment for everyone in the facility  no more waiting for the elliptical machine!


Equinox fitness centers are, without a doubt, the best health clubs in the business.  If you are looking for luxury in your workout, Equinox is a great choice!  They offer towel service, cafes and exceptionally clean facilities.
