Decent facility but... I was looking for a nice gym that had a good amount of cardio equipment and free weights that was close enough to my work. MAC fit the bill as far as equipment and facilities -- full locker room that could use updating (the men's locker room has a group shower while most other facilities in this price range have separate showers), plenty of treadmills/bikes, multiple benches, racks, and free weights...a little dated but good enough. However, after switching to a new gym I had failed to cancel my membership for many months after non-use. Upon realizing this, I attempted to cancel my membership on 1/24 effective no later than 1/24 but hopefully back-dated a few months since my last use. I was notified by MAC management that not only could I not back-date my cancellation, [MAC management quote: "Also, we have a number of members who pay their dues diligently each month, but haven't been in the club in months. It's out of fairness to them that we adhere strictly to the 30 day cancellation policy and do not issue refunds in the case of non use. I'm sure you understand."] but the 30 day cancellation policy is actually longer. If you don't cancel prior to the 18th of the month in which you wish to cancel, you will be billed again in the following month, per MAC. Also, I guess MAC is being "fair" to its members in a sense by equally screwing everyone who pays without usage. If the MAC really did have the best interests of its members at heart, maybe an automated email message to members alerting them that "It's been X days since your last visit, hope to see you soon or click here to manage your membership" would be better. I suggested this to MAC but I know this isn't really an effective business model for a fitness club. So, this gym is suitable for what gyms are actually for - working out - just be careful around the memberships and business side. The "No Contract" / 30 day cancellation policy isn't quite what it seems. My impression is that this place tries to build a community for its members and wants people to feel like they belong to that community. Turns out that the bottom line is the most important thing...as long as they've got your $$$ they really don't care about the member, which is fine, just don't purport to be something you're not - different than any other gym. Fair enough.

Not a stable fitness clubI doubt that Fitness Connection will stay in business for much longer. They heavily rely on people paying for the membership but not using it to alleviate the costs for the people who actually use it. I'm pretty sure their members/active member ratio is ridiculous and they are making money on a lot of people simply because they don't mind paying the $10 a month just because it's cheap or they simply don't know how to cancel it. It's the information era for crying out loud, people should be able to cancel their membership on site or through a website instead of having to send corporate a letter that they want to cancel(most people don't know this). I asked one of the workers why they don't switch to using a fingerprint scanner instead of using their outdated keycards and he simply replied "fingerprint scanning technology is too expensive and we make a pretty good amount of money on the people who lose their keycards" i decided to cancel my membership based on that alone. I just didn't like the feeling of knowing that they are aware of the damage they are doing to people's wallets. It is only $10 dollars to replace your keycard but i'm pretty sure that money adds up with their multiple locations and thousands of members. Also a fingerprint scanner is dirt cheap and fitness connection won't have to worry about multiple people using the same membership(which is something they also make money on by charging people a fee for letting other people use their membership.)quick story.....my friend tried to sneak his little brother in by letting him use his membership and he got caught so Fitness Connection gave him 2 options. He could either pay the fee which was about $80 or he could sign his brother up with a down payment of $35(at the time) and pay $10 a month with a $25 a year equipment maintenance fee. I mean how scammy is that lol. they could easily avoid this situation by using fingerprint scanner. One finger print to one person so there is no way non-members can sneak someone in. Overall only sign up if you're seriously going to visit the gym regularly and are aware of any fees and the cancellation process.
Slender Peach is a great alternative exercise place for women. They have Toning Tables which move you. There are six different tables and you do ten minutes on each for a one hour session. It will help you tone core muscles, improve circulation & flexibility, help you lose inches and if you combine with a sensible reduced calorie diet, it will help you lose weight too. So, if the gym is not for you and walking or jogging in heat and humidity is not your deal, give this a try. It's in a great location and no problem parking.
When I joined sound fitness I was nervous coming from 24 where everybody was rude to me and my wife because we don't look like workout people all they did was try and sell us personal training.... The owner was super nice he took us through our workouts and kept us motivated he may look big and mean but he is very very nice and humble. The whole staff are great ian, Jose everyone always go out of their way to say hi! And I lost 38lbs thank you Earl and Soundfitness .

Well, it definitively isn't a gym I expected. Generally there are all the equipment you require for some regular exercise and fitness. Still it seems that this fitness center is mostly for people who already are familiar with exercising and everything. Unfortunately if you are someone who hasn't been in gyms too often you won't find needed attention...
Place is good and love zumba instructors but people at kids club lately are rude, they do not want the kids to do anything, if they run they are asked to go and seat in "time out" if the kid does not accept, the parents are asked to take their kids out.It is kind of strange to arrive and see all kids in time out.Who might be wrong, the kids?
So glad a club like this has opened in Clear Lake Area!! I had an amazing group fitness class the other day! I hear they will have meal prepping classes with the luxury kitchen they have when you walk in!! Can't wait to attend that and the ariel yoga classes coming soon!! Thank you Iditarod!
If you are like me in that you join a gym based on the chances that you will have a sexual encounter, then this gym seems like the right place. I have not been successful as of writing this, but I do believe that in time I will find a partner(s) with which to sully myself.
Great gym but they rip you off. The front end staff is great but management is terrible. I'm so twisted about this gym because it is very nice and I like the equipment but they are so shady on how they word their contract.
