The fitness center at Scottsdale Community College is excellent. The facility is clean, has top quality equipment, the staff is highly trained and not working there just to make a commission like at commercial gyms. ALL advice I have received from the staff has helped improve my workouts there. The best part is if you pay for a year it is very affordable and there are no contracts and no one wants to have your credit card number to take monthly payments out. If you are serious about getting into shape and want to do so in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere where individuals of all fitness levels and ages work out, please give the fitness center at SCC a try!
i like this gym overall it is a 10. however i was disappointed that they had two kids running around the other day. kids were about 8 or 10 and they kept going from cardio machine to cardio machine. they'd jump on the treadmill, hop over treadmills and leave them running. i advised the staff and they stated they were with their mom and that they had a 13 years old limit for kids and required to be accompanied by mom on the floor. i didn't see mom anywhere and they were running around ignorantly not to mention dressed a bit inappropriate for kids. just saying - please enforce kids rule at the gym. no exceptions.
I have been working out at SCC's Fitness Center since 1998. I love this place, especially the beautiful new building, the cutting-edge equipment and the peaceful atmosphere. People who go there to work out are there for just that. It's not like other fitness centers that feel more like a night club with all the "flirting" and socializing :) The staff there is certified and extremely knowledgeable. And they offer lots of classes throughout the day like yoga, pilates, zumba, spinning etc. I don't ever want to go anywhere else to stay healthy!
