FrontRunners: No Sweat

At the national health club chain The Sports Club/LA (www.thesportsclub.com), you can arrive with sneakers and briefcase at 5 am, stay until the gym closes at 11 pm, and get in a full day’s work and a workout—even if you are traveling on business. The clubs can serve as remote home bases for business travelers, and to accommodate on-site business meetings, The Sports Club/LA’s Reebok Sports Club in New York provides an executive business center. Or you can meet for martini lunches and business dinners at any of the clubs’ in-house gourmet restaurants.

For a $1,200 initiation fee and $210 a month, bicoastal members have access to all nine Sports Club/LA locations in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Boston.

As you would expect, the facilities feature the latest in ex-ercise equipment, cardiovascular classes, and weight training, but there are additional amenities that separate these fitness clubs from others. The Sports Club/LA offers haircuts as well as hair replacement therapy, facials, microdermabrasions, acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and sports massages. You can also have your suits cleaned, and a concierge can help you obtain theater tickets or dinner reservations.

Considering the clubs’ clientele, they could also be great places to do some networking, whether it’s on a rock-climbing wall or a rooftop driving range.
