I love this place and the people that are there. I started going to the gym in February of this year (2014). I was obese at 270+ pounds. I needed a gym that was affordable and had day care (and DID NOT give their clients pizza and bagel like a place I will leave unnamed). This fit both. The ladies that care for the children are absolutely amazing with the kids! I hired a personal trainer for myself, but even on the days that I do not see him, the gym staff is always there to assist me with questions and new techniques to help boost my fitness. I have currently lost 106 lbs through hard work, dedication, and the continued and constant support of the staff and fellow gym members at Fitness 19.
Ignore the nay-sayers about this place, the staff and sales representatives are overly friendly and always make time for personal conversations about your membership and any worries you may have about it. If you are looking to commit the sales team will go OUT OF THEIR WAY to make sure you are comfortable, such as provide you with free days for the gym until your official membership starts. There is only ONE negative, and that is that they don't have a track of any sort, but their number of bikes, treadmills, the rock climbing wall, lane pools, not to mention their huge weight lifting and "aerobics" area more than makes up for that.
Im surprised to read these other reviews. I can't even picture any of the stafg acting the ways described! I have been a member there since it opened and have always been very satisfied with my experiences. The staff is always very friendly. Cheerful greetings upon arrival and wishes for a great day upon departure is their mode of operating. The facilities are always kept clean and, amazingly, smelling fresh! I never have a problem getting on the machine I want. I took my son to another facility the other day for a tour, and was all the more appreciative of PF. It stank and the staff were unavailable to help. I'm staying put!
