EWWWW Gross ! Was the first thought that came to me when I thought about joining a gym. Since Ive joined Phoenix Fitness on Dauphin St, my opinion has changed drastically. This is by far my best impression of a health club. Whether you're a man, woman, gay, straight, fat, skinny, massive , or scrawny; you get the same respect and motivation to accomplish your goals. There is a lot of equipment there that scared the crap out of me when I first walked in. But after their fitness manager walked me through the gym and showed me around it immediately started to feel like home. So far it hasn't been extremely crowded. The owner will know you and call you by your name after less than 5 visits. She is the greatest business owner I have ever met. Her attitude inspires down throughout her team. The head trainer was the scariest man I have ever met. Perception is not reality though. Turns out he is ex military and extremely smart! Not to mention he is also one of the nicest and most helpful people I have met. He is not my trainer as much as I wish I could train with him. They have a few other great trainers on staff as well. I If you are scared to start your exercise program like I was, just go by and talk with them. They have a great staff to help you and motivate you. Also, it's cheaper than most of the other gyms.
Two workouts in and I am ecstatic. This place is leaps and bounds above the ego filled gym that rhymes with "jomni" I just left (well not left, I still have a year on a contract there, but I will sink the cost to never have to step foot in that place again. Being a Fat Guy the only real exercise I do is lifting weights, chasing down ice cream trucks, and struggling to get my hand un-lodged from pick-a-nick baskets. This really is a no frills gym. It is for people who like to go and lift / do cardio / or box. However, it does offer great classes and a great atmosphere. The great thing(s) about this place is that it is never crowded, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, they have plenty of machines and a ton of free weights (THAT ARE PUT BACK IN THEIR PLACE, MIND YOU. Great gym over all, I will most certainly bring my friends and family.
After laying in bed for over 2 years from a spine injury,I became very depressed.My frontal skin had fallen and I had flab everywhere.So I decided to join Jason's Fitness.After only 2 days of working out,I noticed my abs are tighter and the cellulite on my legs and glutes have almost completely vanished. I am ecstatic and no longer depressed.I recommend this gym to anyone who wants to improve their life. Thank You Jason's fitness!
