An economical fitness alternative for city dwellers atop a downtown shopping mecca.. The Scene While this club doesn't have the chandeliered luxury of the New Orleans Athletic Club on the other side of the French Quarter, the Downtown Fitness Center, which has a sister gym at Le Meridien Hotel, offers all the essentials to sweat your way into shape. Ease those tired muscles with an in-house massage, from quick and cheap chair massage to full-body 90-minute rubdown. Members also have free access to the sauna and a steam bath.
The Draw State-of-the-art exercise equipment includes elliptical machines, Stairmasters, Nautilus, treadmills and recumbent bikes. All basic aerobics classes are included in membership. The gym offers more than 40 classes per week, including Spinning, step aerobics, boxing aerobics and yoga.
