This national fitness center's first Taichung branch is located in the basement of the JingMing 1st St. "cafe street". The 6,000-square-meter facility has five different work-out machine areas for cardio training (like running and cross training) and six different sections for weight training (machines, cable system, free weights, functional training area). The machines are all the newest and best in the industry and there are usually two of each to avoid waits. There is also a leisure area with computers, arcade game machines, pool table, couch, TV, shower and sauna rooms. A variety of classes is offered throughout the day in the aerobics room (yoga, pilates, Body Combat, etc.), including daily spinning classes. --By Javier Siles, translated by Angel Pu
