    After going to this gym for a little more than 5 years now, I've finally canceled my membership here. It's a shame because this gym has a lot of potential, but it is very poorly (not too mention cheaply) run.

    The same equipment that was broken, unbolted, or plain out dangerous to use 5 years ago is still in the same condition to this day. I've been told by several members and trainers that the owner will simply not put a dime into fixing these apparatuses. These broken machines/weights put people at risk!

    I was also told from an electrician that works out there that the gyms wiring system is on the verge of collapsing. I'm not an electrician so I don't understand the lingo he told me, but the take home point from him was unless the owner fixed the wiring problems, the gym was at a major fire risk. This is downright irresponsible of the managers/owners of this gym and the fire dept. needs to check this immediately.

    Everything in this gym is poorly maintained and left filthy. I can no longer stand it so I will be locating to a better gym out there (haven't made my mind up yet). Oh ya, and be sure to only get a month to month membership here because powerhouse R.W.C. is famous for ripping people off and still charging people that cancel for many months after. Check out yelp, there are many people who have been screwed over here.

    On a positive note the crowd is nice (except for after 7pm it becomes really ghetto macho mannyish), the parking is good, and there are a good selection of free weights. Just be warned that there are may hazards here and don't expect anything to be fixed.
