Best Gym: Downtown Fitworks

If you're looking for a sports club that offers a rooftop bar and fine dining, try the Cleveland Athletic Club. Also, try a second mortgage. If you just want a place to unleash your office frustrations on a bunch of free weights, the downtown Fitworks offers a cheap, no-frills alternative. Membership can be had for around $35 a month. There's no waiting for equipment, which alone makes it superior to the 6 p.m. logjams at bigger suburban gyms. So skip the rush hour out of town and cruise from the cubicle to the treadmill.
