The cardio area is equipped with matching Life Fitness elliptical machines, treadmills, bikes and stair masters. Members are able to enjoy 11 Sony flat screens displaying CNN, and ESPN. The speakers softly blare pop and classic rock songs to help keep the calories burning.
The large, well maintained downstairs portion of the gym is packed with more than 200 assorted weight machines, including custom L.A. Fitness dumbbells that go up to 120 pounds.
"At night it's mostly college kids and in the morning it's mostly old people," said Cole Caygill, an employee at the gym.
Members can participate in an assorted number of exercise classes, including Kickbox Cardio, Aqua Fit, Yoga, and Mat Pilates which put the club's mats, flotation equipment, and punching bags to use.
"Spin class and Latin Impact are by far the most popular classes," Caygill said. Latin Impact incorporates latin dance into a cardio workout.
The club's locker rooms are also nicely maintained with wooden lockers, granite sinks and immaculate showers, sauna and restrooms.
