If you are looking for a gym or have been thinking about joining one in the Calhoun County Area (Alabama) then this article will be an excellent resource for you. Below is a review of four of the most popular gyms in the Oxford/ Anniston area, as well as links to each gym’s website.
YMCA of Calhoun County
The YMCA of Calhoun County is a great gym to join, especially if you have a family. It has much more to offer than just weights and cardio equipment. The YMCA offers racquetball courts, an Olympic sized swimming pool, separate free weight and cardio equipment, a full sized basketball court and much more. If you are looking for something more than just free weights and cardio equipment then this is probably the gym for you. More information at YMCA of Calhoun County.
Anniston Family Fitness Center
If all you are really looking for is a place to workout and do cardio then this is a great gym. Not quite as large as the other gyms; but, offers free weights, cardio equipment, tanning beds, personal training, and a spa. A free 3 day pass is available for download on their website Anniston Fitness Center. Another unique feature of this gym is it accessible 24 hours a day, so fitting the gym into your schedule should no longer be a problem.
Fort McClellan Aquatic and Fitness Center
Located at historic Fort McClellan, this newly, renovated gym is probably my favorite. The fitness center offers an excellent aquatic area with an Olympic size swimming pool. The facility also has free weights, cardio equipment, basketball courts, racquetball courts, and both a sauna and steam room. This gym also offers flexible payment options allowing you to pay only the months you use the gym, which might allow some of you more sporadic exercisers to save some money in the long run. More information can be found at Fort McClellan Aquatic and Fitness Center.
The only gym of the four that is located in Oxford. Snap Fitness is similar to Anniston Family Fitness Center in that it mostly focuses on free weights and cardio equipment. The gym is also open 24 hours and seems to offer the most complete personal training program. Another advantage of Snap Fitness is their 30 day free trial period. Read more at Snap Fitness of Oxford.
