I blogged a little while ago about how Boston Public was a great place to see Hollywood celebrities while they are in town. Here comes another: The Sports Club LA. The Sports Club is located on Avery Street adjacent to the Ritz Carlton. It's also considered one of the nicest gyms in Boston. You'd figure that the health conscious stars out there would be swinging by the Sports Club for a workout while staying at the Ritz during their Boston stay.

I saw The Rock at the Sports Club way back when in November when he was in town filming his new movie "The Game Plan." The Boston Globe reported that Justin Timberlake was working out with a friend at the Sports Club while he was in town.

More recently, Equinox opened up near the Back Bay T Stop. They had a huge banner up proclaiming that they were now the best gym in Boston - so I had to check it out. I will admit that it was pretty nicely decorated. New places usually are. Their bathroom fixtures were quite nice. I think the fingerprint scanners & iris scanners were a bit overkill. Overall I think Equinox is a bit more modern, but I'm sticking with the Sports Club LA.

    No way dude. Equinox is totally the better gym. Way cooler classes. Nicer equipment. The trainers are phenomenal. And it's never crowded. LOVE IT!

    Which classes do you take? I'm not much for classes, i'm mostly just a cardio & free weights kind of guy. I have taken the spin classes & a few yoga classes and they seemed fine. Have you been to the Sports Club since they finished renovations earlier this year?

    To Marc Siegel:
    The Sports Club LA is downtown on Avery Street next to the Ritz Carlton. The region is called 'Midtown'. It's the area between Boston Common and Chinatown.

    Equinox is on Dartmouth Street near the Back Bay T stop. It's sort of on the border of Back Bay and the South End.
