The preferred place for keeping in shape among Readers' Choice voters is Superior Athletic Club this year.
Superior opened in 1978 as a racquetball facility at 727 Cardley Ave., Medford, later expanding to add weight rooms, pool, gym, snack bar and other amenities for a total of 60,000 square feet.
It added a second, 17,000-square-foot facility at 2500 E. Barnett Road in 1995, and a third, 8,600-square-foot gym at 111 Alta Vista Road, Eagle Point, in 2005.
The club offers both youth and senior programs and includes special services such as a nutritional fitness program, in which dietary guidance and personal trainers are provided.
A 25-yard pool at the Cardley Avenue facility was one of the valley's first non-chlorine options.
Other favorites: Oz Fitness Center, Medford, and Ashland Family YMCA, Ashland.
