Each gym has a signature class that is well-known by their members.
24 Hour Fitness is famous amongst its members for its high intensity, booty shakin’ Zumba class.

On average we have 40-50 members attend the class every Saturday”. The best part about this class, it’s free to members.

Like Body Xchange, Inshape has been rapidly expanding throughout Bakersfield opening 5 locations throughout town. These spacious “luxury” gyms come fully equipped with swimming pools, sauna and steam rooms, juice bars and a work out space specifically for women, all for members to utilize and enjoy. In addition to these luxurious perks. Inshape is known throughout town for its killer Spin Class. Unlike most other classes offered, Spin Class is slightly more difficult to get into. Upon arrival to the gym, members are required to sign in before the class begins. This weekly class offers an enthusiastic instructor, fast paced mood setting music and a great place to meet new people. Not only is the class a blast, but its a great way to get “Inshape”. http://www.inshapeclubs.com/clubs/schedule/4712
