Sports West Athletic Club

1575 S. Virginia Street
Reno, NV 89502
Area: Downtown

Come here for the closest full-service health club to downtown Reno and the best bet for travelers with a downtown home base. While not huge, Sports West especially relative to the monster clubs that are popping up across the country, the cozy and uplifting vibe inside provides a more personalized experience. You get the feeling many people know one another here and s.a.s. (socialize after sweating).

Good-quality treadmills (predominantly Precor), ellipticals, and bikes are tightly packed inside the cardio room while a vast array of strength equipment is dispersed throughout the club's core. We spotted plenty of free weights, Hammer Strength and Icarian machines, and dumbbells weighing up to 100 lbs.

As one of the few clubs with a legitimate lap pool, Sports West should also be considered by swimmers. It's an average-looking water box with 4-lanes of 25 meters. All the toys and extras are provided, and temps are kept at a refreshing 78-82F.

Admission costs $20/day, but belonging to an IHRSA club back home will reduce the price to $8. There's a guest pass online, but a spiel with membership is required and hours are limited. If time isn't an issue and saving money is, check it out. Towels are provided and locks can be rented.
