Kick Up Your Fitness at These Specialty Gyms in the Sacramento Area

A new year means New Year’s resolutions. One of the most common is the goal of exercising more. Gyms are full, walking trails are busy, and folks are determined to get in shape before bathing suit season. Big-box fitness centers are a great way to kick off your exercise routine, but many people prefer the intimacy of a smaller workout space. Still others want to skip the one-size-fits-all approach and instead take advantage of the boutique fitness trend. Whether yoga, Pilates, spin or weight training, following are some of the best specialty gyms in the greater Sacramento area.
