Cost of membership: Around 3035$ Which is great
Pros: Has all the free weights I need. Machines could be a bit better but good enough for the average gym person.
Cons: Over populated with little young "dudes" going through puberty which can get annoying. Cardio machines need more frequent maintenance, urinals need fixing forever...basically business is picking up at this place and maintenance is going a bit down. Staff are pretty friendly and was never pressured to take pt when I first joined. No problems with payment. Clean up crew does a phenomenal job. Been a member for several years but will be switching this year.
Thoughts: Hey old man...yea you the big guy with cap on! Can you pick up after yourself and put away the mountains of plates/weights you leave on the ground. And thanks for leaving your towel on the squat rack today reserving it for yourself for an hour while you're using other equipment. I knew it was you. We're all paying members here! You are pretty strong though you old asshole.
The best gym in the city is (and why):

Cost of membership: approx $35/m +tax
Pros: Clean, friendly, no lineups, good selection of machines
Cons: Very disappointed in the shrinking group fitness offering, both in number of classes and selection of instructors, especially in the summer
Thoughts: Because of the group fitness, seriously thinking of switching gyms
The best gym in the city is (and why): used to be this one...

Cost of membership: It worths the money

I joined this gym almost for a year. I found that the facility is very clean and equipments are brand new. The most important thing is I don't need to line up for machines like my old gym. I know there are ppl not happy about the 1 hr cut down including myself but I think they are doing a wise decision because there were used to be young members running around in front of me that really irritating. Now they are not there anymore so I can enjoy my workout.

Bad thing: I don't like wave music and I just bring in my own so that's really not a big deal but if we could have more choices, it would be great.

Other than that I pretty satisfied with this gym. The last thing I really appreciate is they have cleaner on the floor disinfecting the machines that I don't see at my old gym.

while i will remain a member for the time being (due to a very good rate) there have been some unsettling decreases in service:
child care to be completely stopped
closing hours now 11pm instead of 12 (results in less than 114 hours of floor time per week)
gym will be closed for 67 days in december. will be closed 4 days IN A ROW at xmas for 'maintenance' (when questioned about what 'maintenance would be done there was no answer)

The gym was new when my wife and I joined, so the equipment and facilities were very good. The issue we had was with staff. From the beginning, we were told that child care services would be available, that was false. They kept telling us that it would be coming very soon, but they never offered child care.

The second issue was with a personal trainer. The guy looked and behaved like a drug addict. He cut our appointment short and when we went for our next appointment, he was no longer employed by them.

I voided our contracts for breach, and I would not recommend them to anyone.
