3,036 Apartments for rent in San Lorenzo, CA with Gyms
San Lorenzo Village was one of the nation's first planned communities, with parcels designated for schools, churches, parks, and several retail centers.
Located just across the bay from and south of San Francisco, the pleasant city of San Lorenzo once bore the less attractive moniker of "Squatterville." It was so dubbed because California Gold Rush miners camped between the former Mexican land grant properties of Rancho San Lorenzo and Rancho San Leandro. They may not have found gold but they could've found oysters. Oysters were introduced to the bay, brought all the way around the cape from Patchogue, Long Island on the east coast by a half-shell loving gent named Moses Wicks in the 19th Century. Originally designed as a planned community in 1944, the town featured neighborhoods of two and three bedroom homes, parks, schools, and retail centers, San Lorenzo served as a model for other well known communities like Levittown, PA.

Apartment complexes with a gym offer a valuable amenity to San Lorenzo renters looking to get fit and slash their gym membership. However, not all gyms are the same.
Make a list of your must-haves in a gym setting. Ask about the variety and age of any cardio machines. Also ask about any weight training equipment and free weights.
Consider the spaciousness of the workout area. Some apartment gyms are small. Those can create tension with tenants looking to squeeze in a workout before or after work.
If you enjoy circuit training, make sure there’s enough space to spread out and get in the workout you want.
Cleanliness is also crucial to an apartment gym experience. During your apartment tour, carefully inspect the fitness area to check for cleanliness and any extra perks. Also consider the potential savings if you can cancel a gym membership!
Towels, an attendant, flat-screen TVs, and a locked door for exclusive tenants access can all add value to your apartment gym experience.
