Las Vegas, Nevada is one of the fittest and most health-conscious cities that I have ever lived. With a population of just more than 600,000, Sin City has a plethora of amazing fitness facilities that are jam-packed morning and night.
One of the most booming health clubs is the Las Vegas Athletic Club. It has six clubs in the Las Vegas area and each one has a steady membership base. It’s a step above most health clubs due to the hundreds upon hundreds of cardiovascular machines equipped with either personal televisions or cardio theater. It also offers a large variety of the best weight training machines, indoor running track, indoor pools, and tons of fitness classes for all fitness levels.

24 Hour Fitness is fast becoming one of the best known fitness outlets in the country. This is due in large part to their high-profile partnership with the wildly popular reality show, The Biggest Loser.
