Cheetah Gym Andersonville is not structurally sound and is a threat to public safety. The second floor of the building was reinforced with steel by welders who were not licensed, bonded and who worked almost primarily in fence construction. They had no idea what they were doing. The buckling of the floors was viewable before a false floor was placed over old oak floor in the main weight room where the floor loads are extraordinary. The work was not inspected and the city did not sign off on the master plans saying they approved the work. That issue was handled by Mr. Reza Toulabi who has a long history of highly shoddy work on all his properties. While we are on the subject:
The plumbing is all terra cotta except for exposed pipes which are cast iron as they should be according to code for commercial spaces. Mr. Toulabi bribed the plumbing inspector to look the other way when he sunk terra cotta pipes below the slab. Terra Cotta is rated to last only 15 years. This is his way of screwing over his lender and placing a future owner in a very bad position. Mr. Toulabi makes bribing building inspectors a habit and will cut corners at every available opportunity even when it endangers the lives of others.

Think before joining a crooked gym, they do NOT pay their employees! They have a practice of repeating excuses as to why employees are not getting paid! Run the other way!

bad billing policies

I was a Cheetah member for a year. The gym is nice and clean, but I wasn't using it as much as I had hoped. I contacted them at the end of my contract, within 30 days before the renewal (per the contract).

I spoke with a manager about canceling my membership and he said to fax in a written and signed cancellation request. I jumped through their hoops carefully: wrote the letter, signed it, faxed it in.

Now, 4 months later, I found out that they've continued charging my credit card for a full membership AND have added fees on top of that because they couldn't run the past month's charges because my expiration had passed.

I contacted them today to help them figure it out, and the manager wanted me to play even more games with a special registration specialist. The gym might be clean, but their billing policy is shady and they're unwilling to correct their billing errors. Steer Clear!

Great classes

I love this place! The hours are great, and the people that work there challenge you to get a great workout. Its also a really good place to meet people, I have actually made a small handful of friends there, and dated a guy that I met there. The facility is clean, and the classes are the best.

Awful Gym-- crowded space with a rude staff

The Cheetah sells overpriced gym memberships based on superficialities and status symbolism and , after one joins, continues to put on the sales pressure for additional services. The ownership/staff (not all-- but a few key individuals) is not only unhelpful, but unnecessarily confrontational and edgy.
Do yourself a favor and check out a real gym like Chicago Fitness center on Lincoln. It doesn't have the preening meat market aspect of Cheetah and it has more than enough space for the requisite equipment.

Alot of Fluff

Yes, it is a nice gym and definitely modern BUT, I have been to several gyms in this city and this one has many faults despite some great recommendations. The place is too overcrowded and the staff can be very rude at times. There is really no place to stretch or anything else because of the ""social scene"". Prices are high and I hear they are a bear about contracts. If you are a gym person and cannot be intimidated this is for you, if you are uncomfortable in crowds the stay away.

User review by bc_2005

I am not so sure that is a gym or a resturant. The gym has very bad air ventilation.
I can smell food while I am working out. :(

Great gym - but not a perfect 10

While I agree with the other reviewers that the facilities are in general quite good- over my past year as a member I have found the lack of space for stretching to be quite inconvenient. This is the one downside (well, this and Andersonville parking) from the otherwise well-equipped gym. At peak times I often end up stretching in the locker room as best I can.

AWESOME GYM

From the top floor where you can watch TV and do your cardio to the bottom floor where you can look at the turtle in the waterfall, Cheetah Gym is awesome. They have great instructors and most of the classes are included in a full membership. Wonderful juice bar and often have member brunches. Great to check email before/after workout. Nice place to workout with great people
