    excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible.

    Are you staying in a hotel? If so, they'll probably either have a partnership with a local gym, or they could recommend one. I travel a lot, and find that hotel/gym partnerships featuring discount or free passes are becoming more common.

    I used to go to the Bally in Cambridge... it's a pretty nice gym, but NEVER go on Monday. You'll end up being there for 2 hours because of the wait.

    I hope that you at least punched him in the face for referring to that as a "fitness center" and not "2 treadmills and pink dumbells."
