1 Bay Club South Bay
The Bay Club South Bay isn't so much a gym as a it's a lifestyle destination. Seriously, this is a place where you can hang out all day. There's a high-end spa, a pool, jacuzzis (the skylight over the ladies jacuzzi is heavenly), a healthy, gourmet cafe, a basketball court (the LA Clippers used to practice here, so it's almost like touching the greatness that is Chris Paul personally) chess, gratis morning coffee and tea and even flavored water. It's huge, modern and inviting given that it's literally a club that caters to everyone: singles, couples and families of all ages. It even caters to professionals with its Executive Club membership: you'll receive 20 hours of usage in the on-site connect business suites which feature high-tech presentation and conferencing tools and high-speed Internet as well as preferred member pricing at the Sanctuary Spa, retail products, and for aquatics, fitness, social, kids’ programs, childcare, and preferred rates at partner properties throughout the year. Young families will rejoice in the on-site daycare, while yoga fanatics will appreciate the dedicated yoga room. This is what we call winning.
