What Is the Best Gym of 2007?

Since I'm still polling you guys about the best things of 2007, I'm curious — what gym/health club do you think is the best of 2007?

YMCA is one of my faves but we are members of The Valley - it's totally kid friendly.

Tutta - Why didn't you like 24HourFitness? I'm curious. I really like the idea of it and I was planning on joining one when I moved to a bigger city. I'm a member of Gold's Gym, but not a huge fan of it. I used to go to this privately owned gym just for women before I had to move to the town I currently live in. It was soooo wonderful with all the equipment, private changing rooms, jacuzzis, a spa-like atmosphere. The fact that it was only women was my favorite part. I hate all the gym is like a pickup joint to some people. I miss it so much. They spoiled me for any other gym. LAFitness needs to be on this list too. They just opened up a huge one near my home. They're growing.

There definitely needed to be an "other" button! I have a membership to Cardinal Fitness. It's a no frills gym but they have a ton of locations. There are no classes, but they do have personal trainers on staff and LOADS of free weights, machines and cardio to choose from. I also work out at a local studio to get my group fitness fix. Renew Yoga & Fitness in Indianapolis - if anyone is from around the area check out their site! :)

equinox is my favorite gym. moving back to NYC and getting a memebership there again made my workouts soo much nicer. it's soo clean and pretty and just a great environment to work out in

I love Equinox. They have a great variety of classes and convenient times. Plus their classes are so clever and different I'm never bored and I'm not always using the same muscles in the same ways.

I go to Fitness First. I was previously a member of LA Fitness and they were class A AWFUL!! Fitness First is OK but there is no pool. :( I also rarely use the sauna.

Definitely Crunch! They're motto is "no judgement" I like that. The atmosphere is very low key- people don't dress in designer work out gear. You can wear old sweat pants and no one will sneer at you. It's the Crunch gyms I've been to are very well designed- great aethetics.

I work at a Y and I love working out there because it is totally comfortable because people of all ages and fitness levels work out there.

I 2nd Planet Fitness. Cheap and 24 hrs here! I've taken to a right-before-bed workout, recently. I just don't dig the weight section around 7-9pm... can be kind of rough that way...

Planet Fitness! I used to go to the YMCA, and I loved that even more than Planet Fitness b/c it had a pool, classes, etc. But you can't beat PF's $15/month membership!

GOLD'S! Because Les Mills classes are the greatest! (And I don't just say that because I teach one of them ;) )

Ehhh, I usually stay and work out at my house. But if I were to go to a gym, it would be Gold's. My brother is a personal trainer there, so I picked that one.

Goodlife fitness, but I live in Canada. It's the best though if anyone is ever in Canada. There should have been a other option.
