We like our gyms in Pittsburg. Whether you’re into crossfit, weights, running, boxing, or a mix of everything, you can find it all. You might be a solo workout warrior or a gym class junkie – everyone is always welcome. Here’s a rundown of some of the best spots to pump some iron in Pitt.
A staple of Pittsburg for many years, ALPHA Fitness (formerly MAC Fitness) is a 24-hour fitness facility in a huge industrial style building. If you want variety, they’ve got absolutely everything from turf, to a ninja warrior training section – with upgrades being added all the time. It’s the people that really make ALPHA such a special place though – they’re a dedicated group and you can feel the passion in the building. There’s personal training available too – you can catch boxing lessons from former MMA fighter and Pittsburg High wrestling coach LC Davis, among many other options.
Pinamonti Physical Therapy and Wellness Center
The gym at Pinamonti is connected to their physical therapy office. One of the larger gyms in town, it features all the standard machines you could want, plus an indoor track. In addition to that, Pinamonti offers a variety of amenities, including personal trainers, group fitness classes, a local running program, cryotherapy, and more. You can even bring the kids – they’ve got childcare available most days of the week in their Kidz-Zone. You can also reward yourself after your workout with a delicious protein smoothie at their cafe as well.
If crossfit is your jam, Crossfit 620 is the spot for you. More than just crossfit itself though, Crossfit 620 is all about community and support. It can be intimidating to join a gym, and that’s something specifically that they take out of the equation. Highly focused on group classes and working with trainers, Crossfit 620 helps guide their members to results. If you want to give it a try, you can register online and drop into a class at any time.
It’s fun to stay at the… well you know. The Pittsburg YMCA is a great spot for the whole family to have fun and stay healthy. Offering access to both a fitness center and a pool, as well as tons of classes and activities, you can’t beat the variety that’s available. They’ve also got childcare and after school care for the kids, as well as plenty of youth sports and programs they can participate in while you’re getting in a workout. There’s two full size basketball courts too, if you just want to go shoot some hoops.
Tri Fitness 24/7
Tri Fitness 24/7 offers 24/7 access, 7 days a week at a reasonable price. Their facility features typical cardio and strength training equipment, and also includes free tanning with every membership. They also offer a variety of personal trainers and courses if you want to push yourself to the next level. Another unique part about Tri 24/7 is that it’s the only gym located on the north end of town, making it super convenient for those who live in that area or spend a lot of time at the shopping and restaurant options around north Pittsburg.
