24 Hour Fitness

If you’re looking for a reasonably-priced, full-service national gym, then 24 Hour Fitness is your workout spot. We love that they stay on-trend with their group classes. Our faves on their roster: the HIIT cycle class with short bursts of sprint workout and the Strong by Zumba class with its high-energy beats and Latin influence. Membership prices vary by location, so check around.

Kid Care: Your little gym-goer will get to play with games, toys, watch movies and more. The staff is first aid certified in CPR and they accept kiddos from 6 months to eleven years-old. Not all locations have a Kids’ Club, so make sure to check before signing up. Costs vary per club (typically $4-$5 for up to two hours), or you can add an agreement to your membership for unlimited childcare. Now it's time to get fit!
