Only one seems to be within the City limits of Laurel. Might as well add ones from nearby Columbia, like Lifetime Fitness, and change the question to say "What's your favorite gym in the Laurel area?

Sport Fit gets my vote. It's a great workout atmosphere with "real" people. The training staff is wonderful and will help you reach your full potential. If you're in the market for a trainer check out Sport Fit and ask for Manny or CJ, they are the best in the business.

Wellness for life gets my vote because of the amazing management, staff, and patrons. This gym shows support and motivation for all their clients in their intimate atmosphere. Employees and gym members are always smiling, the trainers are always willing to help out whenever they can, and the facility is clean, neat, and very organized! It's a gym that always leaves individuals of all ages motivated to come back for more sweat and burn!!
