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!
Best Anytime Fitness I have visited!! Top of the line "new" exercise machines; sparkling clean and inviting facility; inspiring atmosphere with sharp, professional manager, Rachel, who authentically cares about the well being of each member; an exceptional owner, who also cares about his members and creating the most beneficial exercise environment - 2nd to non; and members who are considerate of each other, whether in cardio area or weight/strength area. Awesome experience each time I work out, with no regrets!!!
I like Fitness 19 for the friendly staff that make working out more enjoyable. It's not an intimidating environment for people wanting to lose weight and get into shape. They have great hours that work with everyone's schedules. There are skilled personal trainers that give good direction on how to use machines properly and when I had pain in my shoulder they showed me exercises to get rid of the pain within 5 minutes. When I get to the gym the staff uses my name and makes me feel good about myself.
We enjoy so much here at Fitness 19 Canton the availability, equipment, pricing and friendly staff. Oh and we also need to mention that all the special programs that are available make membership so easy (child care, zumba, trainer specials, and member reduction fees for referring new members for example). Finally, the staff continues to demonstrate successful programs achieved (weight loss, muscle structure) for many members - which continues to encourage the rest of us to work harder!
I like the friendly staff, and the wide variety of equipment to challenge your workout. They have good hours, great member recognition and an overall well-run operation!
I've always really liked Fitness 19. They have all of the equipment that I need, and the staff and trainers are all really nice and helpful. Kickboxing is the best!
At Fitness 19 it's all about getting down to business, working out around a good staff who help you reach your goals and make sure you get where you want to be.
Every day the staff welcomes me by name. The gym is clean and the equipment top quality. I never have to wait for a machine, and you can't beat the value!
