What separates a good gym from a great gym? It might be the people, the trainers, the equipment — or it could be the intangibles — things that can’t quite be defined, but make a huge difference. And for many people looking to get back in the weight room, or back into a cardio program, finding the right gym can make all the difference in the world.
Whether it be a boxing gym, climbing center, CrossFit gym, or Olympic weight lifting joint, there are all kinds of gyms, all over the country. And the folks that run them are doing everything they can to make them the best, and deliver results to the people who join.
We took a look at 10 of the top-ranked gyms, using Yelp, from 10 different American cities. We tried to spread things out, hitting cities in every different region of the U.S. — from New York City to Los Angeles, Seattle to Miami. These 10 gyms and fitness centers were the top-rated in each of their respective cities, at the time of this writing, according to Yelp’s system. So keep in mind that things can and do change.
Using that system, we’re sharing 10 of the top-rated gyms and fitness centers in America. We reached out to all of them, heard back from some, and have shared what they had to say. If you’re in one of these cities, you’ll definitely need to check them out.
