School gyms aren't typically places to email home about. They're cramped, worn-down and reek of frat boy. That's why so many UC Irvinians take great pride in their glorious overachiever, the Anteater Recreation Center, better known as the ARC. Airy and gleaming, the 89,000-square-foot fitness center features state-of-the-art facilities (athletic courts, an indoor jogging track, top-quality exercise equipment, a heated lap pool), along with such super-impressive extras as a rock-climbing wall, cooking classes, massage rooms and a smoothie bar. The bad news is that you have to be a UC Irvine student, spouse, alum or staffer to get a membership, though guests of members can get a $5 or $10 day pass. Befriend your local Anteater today.
