Various locations | thegymkc.com
No one really squeals with joy upon arrival at the gym. Working out is, well, work. But at theGYMkc, members don't have to contend with muscle-ridden showboats who hog the weight machines. Even with three locations (in the River Market, on the West Side and in midtown), it boasts fewer meatheads than just about any other sweat spot we can think of, and we dig that. The attendants are friendly and helpful, and the other members are there to actually work out, not pose. Oh, and this is the best part: no contracts and no sign-up or cancellation fees. Now that'll make you squeal with joy.
