There are 2 rec gyms in my area, as well as one competitive. I went there for about 2 years, and it's about a 5 minute drive. The one I went to for the longest, and I call my home gym is about 15-20 minutes away. sometimes shorter, depending on traffic. There is one really well known gym in my area, and people are known to drive quite a way to get their. One or two hours is the longest people have driven for a gym in our state, we have some pretty nice gyms.
