Well, if you are looking to start out or get back into fitness and are looking for a gym, don't go here. I was really excited about taking classes and started with a boot camp today. The biggest issue was how unfriendly and unwelcoming everyone was. I checked in, paid my money and asked a lot of questions about where to go and what to do with my things because I had never been there before. No information was offered if I didn't ask. They pointed across the parking lot to the area with the classes. There was a class going on there that i walked around. No one said hello or asked if they could help. I found the area in the back to put your coat and change into my workout shoes.When the class started, I had to introduce myself to the instructor. No one in the class said hello. The instructor made no attempt to introduce me to anyone and probably forgot my name as soon as I said it. It was a circuit type of workout and he asked everyone to pair up. Of course, I was left without a partner. Very friendly. The warm up was very short. He went through the excessive at a normal speed. There was not really any instruction in correct form although the instructor did correct me a couple of times which was welcome. Basically, I was on my own. There were very little choices of weights, they were all very heavy so you had to modify by not using weight mostly. No, I could not climb a rope, do band assisted pull-ups or hanging knee raises. I am not strong enough yet. This was my first day. Still, I was not intimidated by the exercises, of course I have been working out with personal trainers for 10 or more years. (Mine is away so I was excited to try something/somewhere new.) I had fun with the circuit and burned a lot of calories, but I also pulled a muscle in my leg. Doing a propulsion move without a lot of warm up can do that. I may have had more if I didn't know from personal training the correct form for most exercises (some were new). Although, there are no mirrors so I could not check.Again, no one really said a word to me. I have had people be nicer to me at the big box gyms. There was absolutely no cool down or stretch. I bought a 5 pack of classes but don't know if I can go through such an unwelcoming situation again. It was like being the new kid in class and no one even noticing or caring. I don't even know who to recommend this to.Susan
