About 5 minutes drive from most of downtown's hotels, this health club is a stellar 42,000 square-foot facility in Detroit's New Center area. Easily Downtown's best exercise facility, out-of-towners can satiate their workout desires for a mere $15/day.
More than 18 Precor ellipticals, 15 treadmills and 10 bikes are available to build your endurance. And under the same high-ceilings, nearly 40 stack-loaded weight stations, a wide range of dumbbells and plenty of free weights call for action. If exercising in groups is your preferred workout method, FitnessWorks hosts a broad selection of classes.
Swimmers should flock to this club's marvelous pool. Bright and attractive, the highly rated water venue provides 5 lanes of 25-yard swimming. During our tour, only 3 of the 5 lanes were divided by floating lines, but swimming here does not appear overly popular, so do not worry about lane sharing (all 5 lanes have bottom stripes). We found kickboards and pull-buoys on deck; however, those swimming intervals will want to bring a watch.
