This neighborhood gym offers everything you would expect from a full-service fitness center in a quaint, personal space, including step aerobics, cardio classes, body sculpting, personal training, free weights, Pilates, Cybex machines and massage therapy. Join other diehards when the gym opens at the crack of dawn (6:20am, to be exact!), or come after work when the late-night shift is sculpting their pecks, abs and glutes. The best part about BodyStrength? In a world full of generic corporate gyms, it retains some old-school mom-and-pop charm.
