Worst club I’ve ever, ever visited: a daily-rate visit (NOT a client!) one evening when I was on business in California – truly shabby.
Missing baseboards, peeling paint, old creaky equipment, treadmill rows only 18” apart, weight benches that extended into the path of selectorized equipment (yes, you would be hit), bad ventilation, dark parking lot. The Health Club from Hell.
Best club I’ve ever visited: the Verandah at the Hilton Anatole here in Dallas. Really nice facility, with a rubberized outdoor running path (not really a track) through a private park.
N-i-i-i-i-i-c-e. Also pricey, of course.
Most unusual feature I’ve ever seen at a health club: an outdoor fireplace!
