Best Locally Owned Gym 

Sunset Gym

There are few recourses available when the meatheads at Gold's Gym won't cease dropping weights with a bestial grunt and a floor-shaking crash, and when the spin class at 24-Hour Fitness is more crowded than the first BART train after the strike ends. You deal with it, or you leave and consider the locally sourced noncorporate alternative to fitness culture. This two-story Ninth and Irving institution has all the iron you need to pump and none of the steely, cold reception the gym chains trade in — and all for $10 a week. If someone's routine is driving you nuts, there's someone who knows you to take care of it — and nobody has heard of a "towel fee." Get going right away or tap the knowledge of one of the many personal trainers on hand to get really real.
