Pure Austin Fitness Quarry Lake
Austin, Texas

Outdoorsy types will find a lot to love about this gym, which overlooks its own private lake, encircled by a running trail. When you're not strengthening your core in a paddleboard-yoga class or on the stunning two-story rock-climbing wall, you can watch the action unfold out of the gym's soaring windows or from the cycling and yoga deck. Next trip, we'll visit a grocery store with a staff R.D. for a personalized nutrition session.
