List RulesVote up the gyms you use for a great workout.

If you travel a lot and like to stay fit, you know how important it is to belong to a gym with multiple locations. From Los Angeles to New York, some of these gyms are in select cities but are among the best gyms when it comes to big chains and franchises. If you are looking to do circuit training, check out Gold's Gym.  Are you bi-coastal and want a more yoga-focused workout? Yogaworks might be the gym for you with locations in California and New York. Most YMCA locations will allow you access if you are a member of your local YMCA gym. Equinox gym memberships come with a complimentary fitness assessment to help you get the most out of your fitness regiment. Additionally, most of these brands boast 24-hour gym access so you can work out at whatever time fits your busy schedule. Look for new membership deals especially around holidays throughout the year and vote up the gyms where you work out the most.
