The Club at the Marriott

200 West 12th Street | 816-421-6800

Why watch the Food Network while you're on the treadmill when you can watch the setting sun gleam off the roof of the Kauffman Center? (For exercisers at other hours, the small flat-screen TVs, bolted onto each machine, get plenty of channels.) The downtown Marriott Hotel's health club, on the 22nd floor, has everything you need for a good workout, including weight and cardio machines and a lap pool. It also offers little luxuries: free downtown parking, fluffy white towels, squeaky-clean locker rooms, a laundry service, friendly staff. You don't have to be a Marriott guest to enjoy a workout here, but that woman sweating next to you is someone you probably won't see again, in town for a convention (the Acoustical Society of America, maybe, or the American Meat Institute). So grunt away without performance anxiety, but do avoid the pool when SkillsUSA brings hundreds of teenagers to town.
