I gave Union General Wellness Centre a try for a change when my membership at my old gym expired. UGWC's fees are $65 per month and $45 per month if you buy annual membership. My work-outs usually include aerobic classes, weight training, & cardio. This gym offers a wide variety of activities and classes for gyms I've attended in the area however the equipment and interior are well used and in need of updating. The staff is mediocre. I don't desire much interaction with staff and while I enjoyed a couple of my aerobics/yoga instructors very much (Suzanne especially), overall I found the instructors and staff at UGWC distant and a bit self-indulgent. The cardio and weight equipment is old but functions. There's very little in the way of entertainment-music/video. Just 4 tvs all facing same direction in cardio area with no way to use earphones to hear audio on them you have to read the closed caption. I'd give the UGWC a C- for cleanliness but the interior is old and worn and its hard to make it look clean. Then there was how the staff kept insisting, not in a polite way, that I allow them to take my picture? The reason(s) they wanted my picture was never explained to me??? and they always picked the worse times to confront me about these pictures, like every time I came in the door hurrying to get to a class on time. :(!! The best thing at UGWC was the salt water pool. It was wonderful! If I did a lot of swimming that pool might have been able to convince me to join at UGWC despite all the other issues. I'm glad I tried UGWC. It could use some sprucing up but it was ok. It did make me appreciate my old gym more. If I could give UGWC 2.5 stars I would but because of the icky atmosphere there I can't give it 3 stars so I had to rate it 2 stars.

I do not like how pushy gym sales people can be and this gym allowed me to make my own decisions which was great. For the amount of things this gym offers, it is really reasonable in pricing. Where else am I going to find a pool, aerobics classes, free weights and machines for this rate? Nowhere. The facility is really clean.
