How do all those hot, buffed guys dancing shirtless at Splash tone their bodies (apart from eating nothing but protein shakes from Energy Kitchen and faux-ice cream from Pinkberry and Tasti D-Lite)? They work out at Chelsea's preeminent gym, David Barton, which has long had a popular gay following (and a cruisy reputation, especially in the steam room). This spotless, well-equipped facility is at 215 W. 23rd St. (212-414-2022).

Additionally NYC branches of David Barton Gym are at Astor Place in the Village and on the Upper East Side, and there are also David Barton Gyms in Miami's South Beach, the Seattle suburb of Bellevue, Chicago's River North neighborhood, and Las Vegas.
