10 Top Scottsdale Gyms for Building Strength and Community

Local Info | March 28, 2024 | SWSS Staff

Whether you’re searching for training classes, personal training, or cardio equipment — being able to continue your fitness journey while you’re on vacation (or snowbirding in Scottsdale!) shouldn’t be a hassle. Fortunately, plenty of Scottsdale gyms make it easy to reach your fitness goals with the right motivation, and many offer other perks, like saunas, sports courts, and more!

Here are the best gyms in Scottsdale, Arizona, to consider visiting for an excellent workout in the Valley of the Sun. 

Best Scottsdale Gyms for Personal Training, Group Fitness Classes & More

1. Mountainside Fitness

In the background, classmates of diverse ages and ethnicities are also visible, some blurred in motion, wearing brightly colored workout attire.

Mountainside Fitness is a local fitness center with locations all across Greater Phoenix.

Mountainside Fitness is a family-oriented gym that offers something for everyone. Members can work up a sweat on the state-of-the-art cardio equipment and weight machines and enjoy fabulous amenities like the sauna and basketball court. This gym offers several types of group fitness classes — from yoga and pilates to cycling and Zumba — at various times of the week to accommodate even the busiest of schedules. Parents with kids will be thrilled with the excellent childcare center, and with so many locations, it’s easy to find a Mountainside location near you! 

While you’re traveling, you can sign up for a free five-day trial gym pass, and if you’ll be in town longer, you can choose a month-to-month pricing structure.

2. EOS Fitness

EOS Fitness is another local gym with locations across Greater Phoenix. However, unlike Mountainside’s luxurious and family-oriented vibe, EOS is a budget-friendly gym better suited for those seeking a simple, straightforward, and efficient approach to reaching their fitness goals.

In addition to the wide range of cardio equipment, weight-lifting machines, and free weights, EOS Fitness also offers amenities, like a sauna and a steam room, and some locations even have a pool and a basketball court. This gym in Scottsdale, Arizona, also offers opportunities for guided workouts in group fitness classes and with personal trainers if you prefer a hands-on approach to fitness.

You can sign up for a free seven-day trial gym pass, and if you’ll be in town longer, you can choose a month-to-month pricing structure.

3. Life Time Fitness

Life Time Fitness is the most luxurious gym experience in Scottsdale, with locations in North Scottsdale, Old Town Scottsdale, and the Biltmore.

Life Time Fitness brands itself as the “country club” of gym memberships, with results-driving fitness programs, state-of-the-art equipment, and tons of amenities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, water slides, jacuzzi tubs, indoor basketball and pickleball courts, saunas, steam rooms, activities for kids, and more. Life Time Fitness even offers dining options and co-working spaces!

4. Fit Body Bootcamp

If you’re looking for a holistic approach to reaching your fitness goals that includes exercise and nutrition with a supportive community, Fit Body Bootcamp in North Scottsdale is one of the best gyms in Scottsdale for unique and personalized workouts.

This challenging fitness center, founded by a University of Arizona graduate with a nutrition degree, offers personalized diet and nutrition planning and analysis in addition to workout sessions and programs tailored to your unique health and fitness needs.

5. Maximum Fitness

Maximum Fitness, located at Scottsdale Airpark, is a neighborhood gym that offers state-of-the-art amenities and a welcoming atmosphere.

Rather than a membership-based model, Maximum Fitness focuses on each member’s fitness journey, offering a personalized and laid-back approach to fitness. The trainers and staff take the time to know each member at the fitness center (beyond their fitness goals), making this one of the best gyms in Scottsdale for fitness enthusiasts looking to build personal relationships while honing in on their abilities.

Before starting training at Eat The Frog Fitness, you will need to meet with a coach who will take the time to learn your needs and desires and create a unique training plan that is personalized to you. Then, you can choose from live coaching, virtual in-studio coaching, or on-the-go training to reach your goals.

7. Off The Grid Fitness

Off The Grid Fitness is Arizona’s first “green gym” and personal training studio. It is committed to the health of its clients and the environment. This gym uses eco-friendly, self-powered equipment to help you reach your fitness goals through classes, personal training, and nutrition counseling.

Independence Gym, located near Old Town Scottsdale, is a welcoming, team-oriented gym that welcomes members and guests of all fitness levels. The goal? To develop confidence and become a better person each and every day.

Though Independence Gym argues that the sense of community keeps people coming back each week, the impressive array of equipment certainly can’t be to blame, either. The facility has three Olympic platforms, a 40-yard turf patch, a vertical leg press, a Pit Shark, and two Stairmaster Hitmill X’s. If you’re looking for a challenging workout with a supportive community to cheer you on, you’ll likely love being a member at Independence Gym.
