This new, high-end fitness center--located directly opposite Idee Department Store--claims to be Taichung's largest, with a total of 2,400 pings of space on four floors. Despite its size, Momo doesn't have a crowded, big-gym feel to it, bearing closer resemblance to an upscale health club and spa, starting with the spacious lobby, which looks more like something from a hotel. Among the center's main facilities is a very attractive international-class 25-meter indoor swimming pool with adjacent men's and women's whirlpool and spa facilities and a Balinese-style outdoor garden area. Upstairs is the workout area, equipped with a full set of machines and free weights. Among the more unique features is a state-of-the-art, upright tanning booth that does its work within 10 minutes. Coming soon are individual VIP workout rooms (available for an extra fee), which allow customers to work out and shower up in full privacy. A wide range of over 60 classes are held each week, including yoga, Latin-style dance, spinning, aerobics, children's international-class dance, and special sessions for pregnant women. The fourth floor has a more beauty and spa facilities, as well as a large function room with over 200 pings of space, which may be rented out for a variety of activities. Light meals and a juice bar will also be available here soon. Momo is offering a variety of opening-period discounts on its memberships, with annual fees ranging from NT$20,000 for 18 months to NT$9,900 for four months.
