Gym Spotlight: Mountainside Fitness Peoria

Stadium-style cardio machines with personal TVs
You’ll never wait for a cardio machine

What can’t you do at Mountainside Fitness Peoria? There’s a full-size indoor basketball court, a 30-foot climbing wall, stadium-style cardio equipment with personal TVs, physical therapy and chiropractic services, plus 80+ group fitness classes a week. There’s also a café that serves up smoothies galore, 3 group exercise rooms, including a mind-body studio that screams Zen, and spacious locker rooms full of pampered extras (think standup tanning bed, sauna and steam room). Needless to say, the list of amenities is impressive, but amenities alone don’t make the gym – there’s also a vibe that sets the Peoria gym apart.

For starters, it’s friendly. The staff set the tone with warm smiles, and that welcoming feeling flows throughout.

It’s inviting, not intimidating. You’ll see plenty of gals pumping iron, and no one’s strutting or grunting their stuff.

It’s open and airy. You’ll never wait for a cardio machine or have to line up for weights. Speaking of weights, there’s every weight machine under the Arizona sun, spread out so you’re not pumping iron on top of one another.

It’s pristine. The club has been open 4 years, yet it looks brand spankin’ new. And talk about clean!

It’s family-friendly. Yay, there’s childcare! And it’s the kinda place your kids will be begging to go thanks to the jungle gym, mini rock wall, video games and toys aplenty. They even offer “Parents Night Out” where the kiddos get pizza, crafts, games and movies while the adults get a break. And to top it all off, Sunday is FREE family fitness day, meaning you can bring your buddies to shoot hoops or a gal pal along for yoga. How amazing is that!
