Mike’s Gym II

The true test of a great gym is the leg equipment, and Mike’s has it all—plus amenities including sauna, Jacuzzi, and tanning beds. From 5 to 8 on weeknights, Adonises jostle for pole position on the endless rows of benches. Otherwise, it’s a laid-back place, with a mixed but mostly gay clientele.
