Okemos seems like it’s in the middle of nowhere. In fact, it once was. Okemos was once a Native American settlement and trading point for the Ojibwa Indians, and the town was named after Chief John Okemos.
Today Okemos is a thriving but slightly remote suburb of Lansing. Lansing attracts a diverse population because it’s both Michigan’s capitol and is home to Michigan State University. In 2011, CNN Money magazine said Okemos was the 12th best city for hip, young singles. Okemos is an attractive place for people to live if they want a more rural, slower-paced alternative to Lansing. Many people also choose to live in Okemos if they need convenient access to other cities in the state, including Grand Rapids, Detroit and Ann Arbor. Okemos is an approximately equal distance from all three cities. See more
Apartment complexes with a gym offer a valuable amenity to Okemos 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.
