This article will explore all the best gyms near Sunnyvale in California. We have personal experience attending these gyms so the opinions expressed here will be firsthand. We will try to review gyms based on objective standards (price, design, location, amenities, cleanliness etc.) and subjective standards (vibe, quality of equipment, trainer quality, etc.). We will look at all different types of gyms: personal training studios, membership gyms, martial arts studios, boxing gyms, boot camp class style classes, Orangetheory, spinning classes, yoga studios, pilates, and much more). The Bay Area has a vibrant and diverse fitness culture: average income levels are relatively high compared to most other U.S. cities so people are willing and able to invest in their health. Also it is becoming more and more apparent the importance of exercise as an integral part of daily life that is easily accessible due to the variety of different fitness options available. Hiring a personal trainer has also increased in popularity over the years because people are also becoming more willing to invest in professional help when it comes to building a diet and exercise routine.

1. Orange Theory Fitness
Orangetheory Fitness is located at 155 S Frances Ct in Sunnyvale. Orangetheory is a group fitness class concept that utilizes a combination of circuit training and cardiovascular exercise in a 1 hour workout. The exercises include movements from traditional weight lifting, treadmills and rower exercises, and are formatted in different ways to focus on strength, endurance and power. Orangetheory members wear a heart rate monitor which displays their heart rate in real time on tv screens so they can monitor how much effort and intensity they are putting in. The workouts are designed to help push members into different heart rate zones which have different health and fitness benefits. Heart rate based interval training has been shown to optimize EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) which is known as the “after burn effect”- how many calories you burn after your workout due to elevated metabolism. For the traditional weight lifter who does not like cardio, Orangetheory Fitness may not be for you: their cardiovascular exercise component is definitely geared towards building pure endurance rather than muscle mass. For someone who enjoys aerobic-based workout, and enjoys working out with a group, Orangetheory Fitness might be a very good fit. Their treadmill workout routines are unique and challenging and will definitely push your cardio to the max. Many participants dread the rower component of the group fitness class. Rowing is one of the best total body exercises - according to some studies, rowing uses over 80% of your total body muscles. Also rowing is a low impact exercise and is less damaging on your joints and ligaments than high impact sports such as running. Rowing can help you build strength and endurance at the same time. Orangetheory Fitness is a franchise and can be found in every major city across the U.S. Most of their facilities have private showers which is a big plus if you need to get a workout in during the middle of a work day. Also Orangetheory Fitness offers very early morning classes around 5 AM for those looking to start their day with an intense workout. The group instructor usually manages a group of 15-30 members so it is a bit difficult to get individualized attention; if your form or posture is incorrect, it is unlikely for the group instructor to catch on to it since he is too occupied with running a large class. If you need more individualized attention, a Sunnyvale personal trainer might be your best option. NBI Fitness has a team of Bay Area personal trainers who are certified and have college degrees in Exercise Science and have over 10,000 hours of combined professional training experience. Everyone has room to improve and working with a personal trainer Sunnyvale might give you the boost you are looking for.
2. Crunch Fitness
Crunch Fitness is located at 1651 Hollenbeck Ave in Sunnyvale. Crunch Fitness is a franchise with over 400 locations worldwide. Their catchphrase is “no judgment” in an effort to make their gym more appealing to the general population. Crunch Fitness is similar to 24 Hour Fitness since they offer group classes, similar amenities, personal training, guest passes, and seasonal discounts. Memberships start at $14.99 per month which is a great deal; for $34.99 you can bring in unlimited guests and have access to all the group fitness classes and go to any other Crunch Fitness club. Interestingly, most Crunch Fitness gyms always have a boxing area with a punching bag. Their membership plans are month-to-month, no commitment which is a big plus when it comes to gym membership flexibility. Many other gyms such as Fitness 19 are very difficult because they force you to join for a 12 month commitment and penalize you if you cancel your membership early. Just like most other large commercial gyms, Crunch Fitness has full locker rooms with showers, online class reservations, online nutrition resources, and dedicated area for cardio machines. Crunch Fitness gyms are usually newer in construction than 24 Hour Fitness and appear much cleaner than most of the local bay area gyms. Crunch Fitness does get extremely crowded during peak hours which is in the mornings and the evenings. Crunch Fitness personal training is very pricey: they offer 10 sessions for $1000.00 which comes out to $100 per session.

Functional training is designed to help you improve your natural daily movements so that you perform better physically and prevent injury. The class format is a circuit training style structure where exercise stations are set up and members rotate through the stations.
