Best of Boston

2005 Best Health Club

The Sports Club/LA

When is a workout more than just a workout? When it comes complete with a steam bath, sauna, swimming pool, nutritionist, and plush towels in an even plusher locker room. The Sports Club/LA has all of this, plus top-of-the-line equipment and creative classes such as body rolling and gyrokinesis. Members can also take advantage of Splash, the on-site full-service spa, and Blu restaurant, which offers a menu that’s both healthy and delicious.
