It's a decent gym. The classes are randomly fun. Zumba is by far the favorite. The equipment is in good condition and the weight section is enormous. Staff is friendly and helpful. If you live in the area, it's your best bet for an affordably priced and convenient gym.

Great gym and location. Do NOT base your decision on the older reviews. Recently they have done a renovation & got rid of bad management. Give it a try, the new general manager is polite & has done great job in the short time he has been @ Hollywood.
I've been a member of this gym since it was Sports Connection in the 1980's and then it was THE gym to go to. However, all good things come to an end and this gym had seen better days. HOWEVER, recently 24 Hour Fitness did a total remodel of this WeHo space and it's amazing. New cardio equipment, new locker rooms, new flat screen monitors, new co-ed steam rooms and jacuzzi, new weights and new weight-machines. They even have towel service, although they need to empty the ""used towel c...view moreontainers"" a bit more often. But I have faith they'll get it right. I work out occasionally at Equinox Pasadena, and let me tell you that 24 Hour Fitness West Hollywood is almost on an equal par (except at 24 HR, they don't supply Kiehl's shampoo!)view less
I joined the 24hour fitness 4 years ago for the pool facilities only. In the beginning, the pool at the Arclight building was always closed, or at least it seemed so to me and the lanes seemed narrower. the pool at the West Hollywood facility is great. It's an outdoor pool and is clean and perfectly temperatured (is that a word?). Conversely, the locker room section is disgusting and I rarely go in there. As long as they keep the pool up to the standards they have now I'll always ...view morebeen a member.view less
The energy in the two facilities I have used (Mid-Wilshire, Beverly Hills) is awful, it is crowded, dark and dirty. The Beverly Hills facilities are the worst, there are a million machines packed tightly in this awkward space, with no sunlight and it reeks! Worst of all, when I went there was no air conditioner so it was hellishly hot. I would not recommend this place to anyone, if this is your only option, try the beach or Runyon Canyon for excercise, invest in a couple of free weigh...view morets and bands, working out here will definitely get you off your fitness path and make you want to never work out there again!view less
Back in the day, say, the late '80s or early '90s, this was a fantastic gym. Unfortunately, it appears nothing --not the equipment, not even the carpet -- has been updated since then. The place gets an ""A"" for location; right in the middle of Boystown, with a killer view of Santa Monica Boulevard and the hills. But the lockerroom is FILTHY, the weights always unracked, and the equipment in a bad state of repair. It's a miracle to me this chain stays in business.
The staff is incredibly friendly, and the location is great for me- as a woman I have plenty of privacy- BUT a large fraction of the machines are broken- I would say one in 5 has an ""out of order"" sign on it, and half of the ellipticals squeek or shake severely. There is usually one water gountain ut of order at all times- I have not had this problem at other 24 hour fitness locations. \r
Very little is repaired in the womens locker room area- possibly because few women use this...view more location. There is usually one bathroom out of order, there hasn't been paper towels in the bathrooms in the 4 years I've been there. Water pressure in the showers is a consistent issue, and it has never changed. \r
To no fault of 24F, I hae been stolen from there- twice. My locker was broken into and my wallet was stolen. Another time, it was just the cash in my wallet (80$)- there is often a homeless woman who gets into the gym somehow, and she may have nothing to do with the thefts, but this does show that there is not a lot of attention payed to who wanders in the gym.\r
...BUT, I still go! =) I leave all my valuables in the trunk of my car- which I park atleast 4 blocks away o avoid the 5$ parking fee at the parking garage. I always plan to shower at home now.view less
Great value for your money, lots of equipment with big windows and a view outside, lots of room and space and a great location with parking...but this place has the nastiest locker room and sauna I have ever seen outside a Travelodge motel. I won't even change there.
If they just redid the locker rooms I would give it a star for value.
But the workout equipment is great, and members are nice, if not a bit forward. I was asked twice to do a questionable ""model"" shoot by chatty membe...view morers. They have a much nicer 24 Hour Fitness in the Cineramadome on Sunset and Vine. Gorgeous!view less
Think twice before signing up at this health club. While it is convenient for the locals, the facilities leave a bit to be desired. It is a spacious layout on many different levels. Air conditioning is a major problem, it gets very hot and uncomforatble quite often. The equipment is average. I'd switch if there was another convenient option.
This is a pretty good 24 our fitness - it has a pool, good classes (especially some of the Yoga instructors), but what separates this club from the rest is the location. Located in the heart of WeHo, it makes for great people watching (which can be very helpful while sweating on the Precor), especially when you get to see cute guys pick up on one another while waiting for the machines. Also, as a woman, I am always alone in the locker room and have the whole sauna to myself.
