Let’s face it, January is the month we all scream in agony as we try on our favorite outfits and realize that 6 weeks of eggnog and cookies did not do our bodies any good. And if you relocated to Cleveland, Akron or Canton in the past year, you may not know all the local gyms that can help whip you back in  to shape. So if you want to get a jump on those New Year’s Resolutions here are Executive Arrangements picks for our favorite gyms and athletic clubs in the area.
NOTE: we did not try to list all the specialty fitness facilities that focus exclusively on 1-2 activities, yoga studios, CrossFit, tennis clubs, etc. Instead these are the one size fits all gyms that offer a bit of everything, including group classes. And, we have picked the neighborhoods and suburb that our corporate transplant clients have settled in over the last few years VS trying to name gyms in every suburb in NE Ohio. Now, on with those New Year’s Resolutions! Seriously, check out the views of The Flats and the Cuyahoga River from the treadmills at EB Fitness Club have (pictured). Doesn’t that inspire you to start running?
