The City's Best Gyms


YMCA Embarcadero

169 Steuart St, San Francisco, CA 94105

The Village People were right. It's fun to play at the YMCA.


Bay Club San Francisco

150 Greenwich Street, San Francisco, CA 94111

Quite a workout for your wallet but worth every penny.


Club One at Fillmore Center

1455 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA 94115

Most of the members will tell you their dues are a worthwhile investment.


24 Hour Fitness

1645 Bryant Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

No frills, all value, and Safeway's right next door.


Koret Health and Recreation Center

Turk St and Parker St, University of San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94117

This University of San Francisco facility is top-notch, although the hours are limited for non-students.
