1. Crunch Fitness

A no-judgment gym for beginners and advanced gym-goers.

1801 South Academy Blvd | Colorado Springs | 

You’ve probably heard of Crunch - they have locations all over the U.S. Another reason you might have heard of Crunch is because it’s a good gym for all levels of fitness enthusiasts, beginners and more advanced gym-goers alike.

Crunch offers cardio equipment, weight machines, and free weights through the base membership. You can enjoy group fitness classes, personal training, and advanced HIIT classes for a little more in price through their other membership options.

As for the atmosphere, the space is decked out in bright blues, oranges, and yellows - the perfect upbeat, wake up environment for either an early morning or late night gym session. The lighting is good, the space is always clean, and overall it’s a supportive environment which is key when you are just beginning your fitness journey.

Crunch is #1 on our list because everyone feels welcome here, and because the space is bright and upbeat.

“There is an abundance of all kinds of machines to utilize and ALL of the classes are motivating and OUTSTANDING... “Crunch Fitness” is a welcoming FUN place to attend in one's journey to improved wellness, movement and an EXCITING and SAFE place to be.” - Yelp Review 

2. VASA Fitness

Affordable gym with lots of amenities.

455 E Cheyenne Mountain Blvd | Colorado Springs | 

A basic membership at VASA Fitness is as low as $9.99 per month. Since price is always something important to consider when joining a gym, we love one that costs less than $10 a month and still has a performance lifting area, a functional training turf area, and an expansive cardio deck. 

Their fitness membership offers more amenities for $21.99 a month, which is still relatively affordable. With this membership, you have access to everything the basic membership has access to with the addition of a basketball court, cycling classes, a fitness cinema, group fitness classes, an indoor pool, racquetball court, tanning beds, spa, sauna, and steam rooms, and more. 

If you want a gym with amenities at an affordable price, we highly recommend VASA Fitness.

“This is a great gym especially for the price. To use the weights and all the cardio equipment whenever you want you just have to pay about $10 a month, which isn't too shabby… I LOVE IT!” - Yelp Review 

3. Flex Gym & Fitness

Old school gym for weightlifting.

6054 Hollow Tree Ct | Colorado Springs |

This hole in the wall is a true weightlifters’ gym with old school equipment and friendly staff and fellow members. If you are passionate about lifting and want to be surrounded by people with similar interests, you should go to Flex Gym & Fitness. This gym also has a lot of machines and equipment that other more commercial gyms don’t, so if you want to try out some new machines, this is the place to go.

If you are only in town for a short period of time, Flex Gym & Fitness offers a day pass for only $8 with no hidden costs. A monthly membership is $50 which is more expensive than other gyms, however there are no lines for weights or equipment and most equipment is specific for true weightlifters, and you are supporting a small business in the Colorado Springs community. 

If you want a different sort of gym experience than you will find at a commercial gym, head over to Flex Gym & Fitness for a weightlifter’s paradise.

“The true lifters gym. Strong man equipment, tires, and barbells many people have never seen before. This is the gym to go if you're training for a competition, or need an extra push. Very motivational with a lot of iron.” - Yelp Review

4. Accolade Fitness

Independent, locally owned gym with exercise classes included.

4390 Arrowswest Dr | Colorado Springs | 

This independent, locally owned gym sets itself apart by including free exercise classes with their gym membership. While commercial gyms would charge an extra $20-$30 a month on top of a $20 basic membership for access to class offerings like these, Accolade Fitness includes exercise classes with their $29 a month membership. 

Their member privileges don’t stop there. You also get unlimited tanning, access to the dry sauna, and the ability to bring a guest everytime you work out. All of this, on top of access to the gym facilities themselves. 

If having access to both lifting areas and exercise classes is important to you, we highly recommend checking out Accolade Fitness. Stop in to sign up for a free three-day trial to see if it’s the right fit for you!

“This gym worked well for me and my husband for the 4 months we were members. This gym is a great neighborhood gym that isn't fancy but it's super affordable. It's a small gym that is simple and meets your workout needs.” - Yelp Review

5. AlphaGainz

Fitness center committed to training you like an athlete.

2031 B St | Colorado Springs | 

This gym is relatively new to the area, having only just opened in September 2021. However, it’s quickly become a popular spot in Colorado Springs for gym rats who want to train like athletes rather than bodybuilders and families who benefit from their family membership bundles alike

When you join AlphaGainz, you can trust that you’ll be working with industry professionals like certified nutritionists and tactical trainers who have the experience and education to ensure your success as an athlete.

A membership costs $45 per month, but you can bundle with family members on a plan to save money. Each primary member can add up to four family members, with each additional membership costing $25 per month.

AlphaGainz also provides youth fitness programs to prepare young athletes for a future on the field, court, or mat.

There are no Yelp reviews for AlphaGainz yet since it only just opened, so you’ll have to go and see for yourself if it’s worth the hype!

6. 24 Hour Fitness

Not open 24/7, but still an affordable gym with great operating hours.

7. Life Time

Luxury gym that’s worth the steep price.

4410 Royal Pine Dr | Colorado Springs |

It’s true, Life Time is a luxury gym. Memberships are on the more expensive side, with a standard adult membership starting at $129 a month. However, if you want to invest in yourself and your fitness journey, if you spend all of your time at this gym anyway, this luxury gym is worth the steep price.

At Life Time, you will find a spacious multi-level gym floor, a resort-like pool deck, group fitness studios including cycling, pilates, and yoga studios, and indoor tennis and basketball courts, as well as a cafe and spa.

Other features that enhance your gym experience include touchless check-in, online class reservation, virtual classes, and more.

In short, this gym membership is worth it if you spend a lot of time at the gym and if you are going to utilize all of the amenities of this luxury gym like the pool, sauna, and studio classes. Definitely sign up for a free trial to see if this luxury gym is for you.

“My family comes here, the teens who are apathetic towards everything they look forward to coming here. They like the rock wall the most, swimming a close second. The classes are amazing, something for everyone. It's worth the price even if some people don't believe so.” - Yelp Review 

8. OrangeTheory 

Total-body group workout studio.

5990 Stetson Hills Blvd | Colorado Springs |

You’ve probably heard of OrangeTheory, and you probably know you’re not signing up for a regular gym when you sign up for an OrangeTheory membership. OrangeTheory is a total-body group workout studio that combines science, coaching, and technology to guarantee maximum results.

During a heart-rate based HIIT workout, a coach will guide you through the five different heart rate zones: resting, easy, challenging, uncomfortable and All Out. The goal is to spend 12 minutes or more with your heart rate elevated in “The Orange Zone” to boost your metabolism, burn fat, and burn more calories.

Each class includes rowing, cardio, and strength training. 

This total-body group workout studio is perfect for you if you want more guidance and support on your fitness journey than you will find at a typical gym and a motivating and supportive group environment in which to pursue your fitness journey.

OrangeTheory may seem intimidating at first, but many have seen their desired results and have really enjoyed their experience!

“Wow...I was hesitant joining OTF as I've never really been a group fitness or membership kind of gal. This place changed that. If you're thinking about joining, do it, it's actually as challenging and fun as it's advertised to be.” - Yelp Review 

There are probably more gyms on this list than you anticipated, but we think it’s a good thing to have so many options to pursue one’s fitness journey! Whether your ideal workout is weightlifting by yourself with headphones in and music blasting or cycling in an upbeat, motivating group environment, there is a gym in Colorado Springs for you.
