This is the first review I've ever written on one of these sites... which is a testament to how highly I think of Xplore. Good old-fashioned wanting to spread the word. It's got a great vibe from the second you walk in, and you get the sense that everyone - members and staff - genuinely enjoys being there. Really, if you're downtown and have a few minutes to stop in, you'll see what I mean. I have never enjoyed going to the gym before, and I now actually find myself looking forward to going after work everyday (WEIRD). They've got a lot of activities going on that are all included in the membership... I've tried out some classes and I went on a weekend hike led by one of the trainers. Good stuff... they've got a lot of excursions I'm looking forward to checking out. And if you're looking for new people in your life, it's actually pretty easy to make friends at Xplore.
Pros: Friendly/no-pressure staff, plenty of machines
