Poe’s Gym

Its website declares that Rocky Balboa might’ve worked out here, but many of Poe’s members are newbies who are learning the ropes of a proper, safe workout—so no one should feel intimidated.

Rates:

  • Primary membership: $89 per month with a one-year commitment, plus fees
  • Pay As You Go membership: $119 per month, plus fees
  • The Nations resident membership: $69 per month with a one-year commitment, plus fees
