Fitness CenterWhen comparing the offerings from fitness clubs, check the facilities at recreation centers run by local governments. Many jurisdictions offer fitness club-type facilities that are much less expensive to use than comparably equipped fitness clubs.

Below we list the local-government-run recreation centers we could identify as having at least a weight room/fitness center and/or an indoor swimming pool.
