Finding a Good Gym in Central Oregon

gyms in bend oregonCentral Oregon is one of the best places in the country in which to live if you enjoy the outdoors.  The city is full of people that are in incredibly good shape.  And there are host of fitness clubs and gyms in the area from which to choose when you can’t get outside for your exercise.

Bend Oregon

Bend is a town of about 85,000 people.  Most folks move to Bend to be near the mountains.  There’s great skiing in the winter and incredible mountain biking in the summer and fall.  But sometimes the weather can get pretty nasty.  On those days it makes sense to stay indoors to get your exercise.  Bend Oregon gyms offer a great alternative to outdoor exercise.  And there are quite a few to choose from.

One of the nicer ones is the Bend Downtown Athletic Club.  It is run by Gary and his wife Laura.  One of the best things about this particular facility is that is almost never crowded.  There are very few times when you’ll actually have to wait to use a machine or weight bench.  There’s a sign up sheet on the wall for the cardio machines, but most times it’s not even necessary.

The entire gym is kept immaculately clean at all times.  The staff makes sure that all weights are returned to their rightful place repeatedly throughout the day.  This means that you never have to go searching around the gym for a particular piece of equipment.

There are various classes throughout the week.  They have a spin class, and a weightlifting cardio type class two days per week.

If you are interested in working one on one with an expert, they have several certified personal trainers on staff to help you put together a fitness plan.  They can even help you with diet and nutrition plans as well.

Overall the Downtown athletic club is a top notch facility.
