Best kids area: LA Fitness-South Loop

A jungle-gym maze and video games won this spacious kids' club the prize.

By Martina Sheehan

With a PlayStation 2, jungle-gym maze and regular story times, this gym’s 1,275-square-foot Kids Klub lets parents power through cardio, go for a swim or wind down with a schvitz, knowing that the little ones aren’t throwing boredom-induced tantrums in front of a television somewhere. There’s plenty to engage them, with all-ages activities that include building blocks, coloring books, Lincoln Logs and puzzles, plus Mario Kart and baseball video games and a quiet homework area for studious types. Caretakers are triple-screened and rates are great: Unlimited access costs parents $10 per month. The club welcomes kids ages three months to 12 years.
