I was a member of Midtown Athletic Club for 20 years. AVOID THIS CLUB. Over the years the cost has increased and the club has gone downhill. They are the most expensive health club in the area that I know of. Most of the good reviews you see are old. MIDTOWN ATHLETIC CLUB is NOT WORTH the MONEY. Don't sign a contract with them. They will take every penny they can get from you! They have removed equipment racquet ball courts and other facilities that I used.
I recently joined LA Fitness and it is a much better value. The locker rooms are better and you pay much less for more. And you will have access to many more clubs and equipment.
When I cancelled my membership at Midtown Athletic Club they insisted on charging me for another month. They continued to charge my credit card against my will.
STAY AWAY Midtown Athletic Club. If you are already a member, don't get passive and just keep paying the outrageous cost. There are much better and less expensive options.

Midtown Athletic Club is pretty good overall if you don't mind the monthly cost. Its spacious, clean and hardly ever crowded. This club is more of a tennis/racquetball/basketball/social club than a weight-training facility. So, if you're looking for a serious ""gym"", this may not be for you. On the other hand, this place definitely has a good atmosphere and pleasant members (a very small percentage of the rift-raft and undesirables you usually come across at gyms in a large city like Atlanta). If you're goal is just to get/stay in shape and like lots of cardio equipment, aerobic and yoga classes, tennis, basketball, etc., this is an excellent facility. The only thing I would warn new and old members about is the personal trainers. There are a couple of good ones but most have absolutely no clue about training. For instance, there is one particular personal trainer who has been working there for many years, but has totally no idea what he is doing. He appears to be uneducated and has a complete lack of knowledge about weight training and dieting (which is obvious to anyone who is experienced in this field), but he constantly babbles on about his ideas and makes his trainees perform silly, useless and even dangerous movements. Unfortunately, he may be jeopardizing the health of the trainees with his weight training methodology. Besides his foolish training and diet ideas, there is another simple way to determine that this "" personal trainer"" has no clue -- just take a look at his physique. Yes, he is ""cut"" but he's badly disproportionate -- top-heavy with legs that remind everyone of a flamingo's. This clearly reflects that he does not know much about training because, if he did know anything, surely he would remedy this situation. Again, this is just one hint that this guy has no clue about weight-training; listen to him expound on his ridiculous diet and training methods and you'll have the complete story. If you do join Midtown, its best not to use their personal trainers. If you must, then be sure to look around carefully, talk to other members and get one of the better trainers.
This facility provides a rebuttal for every excuse any person could make in regards to procrastinating with their body's overall health wellness! What do you like Swimming? Got it, indoor and outdoor...Tennis? Got it, indoor and outdoor...Raquetball, Got it! Personal Training? Got it! In addition, there is this new sport that I just learned of called Squash, similar to raquetball, an amazing sport! Like attending group classes? Got it! Cycling? Got it! Kickboxing? Got it! Basketball? Got it! I can go on and on and on with this. They even have a nursery for those needing childcare while they work out! Hungry? No problem...they have a full Cafe in this facility! Enjoy the WIFI capabilities, rock wall climbing, sauna, steamroom...this place is wonderful, a grown up's playground! Not to mention the staff of people that they have working there are phenomenal. They provide everything that you need, you only need to bring yourself! Leave the towels, soap, shampoo, EVEN workout clothes...they have a pro shop where you can get these items! You have to see it to believe it! I joined immediately and you will too! See you there!
This club is not only the biggest and nicest, but has every kind of class and type of equipment any male or female could hope for. The outdoor and indoor facilities include rockwall, tennis, basketball, sand volleyball, squash, swimming, and more. There are trainers and Pro's walking around everywhere and you can get sessions with them any day of the week. If you want to work out, drink, eat great food and have a social life, this is the place.

This is the most wonderful club in the city to be a member of. All the staff are polite and attentive with a ""what ever I can do to make your visit better"" attitude.
The club is spotless, the members friendly and social.
Midtown is a very easy place to feel at home at and there is always something new to do it really is so much more than a Tennis club, ( I don't even play !)
Where Gold's,24hr and lifetime are crowded dirty and intimidating Midtown is relaxing refreshing and stimulating. The personal traning staff are extremley well trained with a huge variety of backrounds, there are also a large veriety of classes Pilates Yoga and aerobics.
The Tennis facility is state of art and they regularly have visits from Tennis celebritys Wayne Bryan was there coaching last week.

I don't generally take the time to post on these; but this deserves mention.
I began playing tennis here; and in an effort to dramatically improve my tennis game, I started personal training. Now with a personal trainer and a tennis coach working together to improve the weaknesses in my game and tailor my fitness program to work specific areas, my game continues to improve exponentially. They even coordinate with my massage therapist to help focus on specific muscle groups for improved flexibility and injury prevention. I could not offer a higher recommendation than the team at this club!

So I didn't know fitness clubs like this existed in Atlanta, but I actually found Midtown Athletic Club online and went for a free week trial and just joined last week. Since I found them online, I felt compelled to spread the word online if other people were new to Atlanta and searching for a new gym like I was.
This place is freakin' awesome. I'm talking indoor/outdoor tennis, indoor/outdoor pool, basketball, squash, every group fitness class you could think of including a private spin class studio......more cardio/weight machines than you can imagine... I could go on and on.
Clearly, I HIGHLY recommend giving Midtown Athletic a try.

The club is huge and has sooo much to offer!! I recently joined and this is the nicest gym that I have ever been a member. There is a large weight room with many options for machines and free weights and smaller area on the third floor (yes, the THIRD floor!) for those who get intimidated by the weight room crowd. Lots of cardio options and no waits like the over crowded Y. There is also basketball, raquetball, and lots of group exercise classes. It doesn't feel like the typical gyms that I have ultimately cancelled in the past. Nice staff, very clean and so much to do!

Much more than a gym! This club is worth every extra dollar over the local gyms- you can do it all here-clean-friendly members and staff-open and airy setting with no waits on anything (this club is huge)! Nice to be able to get in and out on my terms, not other members terms. I highly reccommend this ""community within a community"" to all for exercise-fun-tennis-social events and lunch or dinner in the cafe! It's a win-win! The name Midtown Athletic Club can throw you off a bit (location is Marietta)- but it is centrally located off Interstate 75-

This gym has great equipment (hundreds of cardio), good classes, a large locker room (team, whirlpool and sauna), indoor and outdoor pools, racquetball, tennis, basketball, squash. It also has towel service, massages, trainers, etc etc the works.
But you pay. I paid $110/month for a single person's membership with one year contract. In addition, they constantly nickel and dime you- $5 for lost badge ($.25 piece of plastic), one month cancellation fee, stuff like that.
If you want great service, lots of free machines this is the gym for you. If you can handle the typical underhanded gym behavior that is so common in this industry (seriously, is there a gym that doesn't try to do all this stupid stuff?)
