24 Hour Fitness Gym Chains: Best Big-Box Gym: 24 Hour Fitness Clubs

With a huge network of clubs throughout the country, some of which stay open around the clock, 24 Hour Fitness members can work out almost anytime, anywhere. Every sprawling location (up to 100,000 square feet) features the latest strength and cardio equipment plus a variety of classes, including quirky fare like Hot Hula, a Polynesian-style core-sculpting dance workout with live drumming. For extra weight-loss help, members can buy the bodybugg ($199, mystore.24hourfitness.com), a wear-on-your-arm calorie-burn monitor, and have a coach adjust their routines according to its readings. "The staff takes pride in what they do and make it a supportive environment," member Joy Kuraoka says.
