The old facility was nice and the location was GREAT. Personally, I don't care much for socializing at the gym. Everyone was very good about respecting my privacy, but I also got the impression that it was a very warm and friendly environment. I like this over the aggressive tones that I sometimes get from other gyms (maybe I'm paranoid). In the fall of 2013, Boost announced a move and MASSIVE facility upgrade. I saw the plans and new that this was going to be very nice. I immediately renewed my contract for the next 2 years to lock in my rate. I moved to the new facility and have been enjoying watching everything come together as I work out.Sadly, I was informed in early March 2014 that my job would be sending me out of town for the next 10-12 months. I remembered checking out the Boost reviews and DREADED trying to close my contract. Technically, I am not changing addresses (I'll be living out of hotels) and I know that it is not permanent. I read the agreement and I did not feel like I had good argument other than it was a special situation. I started the cancellation process online and tried to make sure that my situation was understood. I wanted to make sure that I was polite and understanding in the fairness of the situation for both parties.The GOOD: Joey and Jon took great care of me. As soon as I got them all of the facts and had a face-to-face, the problem was solved. I am not happy to be leaving MY GYM, but I am happy that they made the situation much easier.The BAD: It was a bit difficult to get ahold of Joey to start (I did not start by putting in my 30day online notice). Obviously, it was during their huge renovation AND during the spring membership/renewal rush. The day that I had my face-to-face, I watched him take back-to-back appointments for a good 90 minutes during my workout before I approached him. It is a small business going through a busy time, no big deal.Conclusion: This place is great and the other reviews support that (unless you plan on dropping your contract). I feel like I would have been writing a very different review if I hadn't been polite. I had a contract with Boost that I had to break. I pleaded my case and asked for understanding. Because of that, I am leaving on good terms and can't wait to come back.

I've been going about 3 years to Fot Factory Nashville. They have convenient class times and the space in conducive to an variety of workouts. That variety is one of the biggest reasons I continue with them. Each workout lasts 45-60 minutes, including warm up and cool down. FFN reminds you that working out can be tough, but efficient, if you follow a few core practices. Reduce the down time--each person can maximize his or her level within each workout--and push and pull heavy things for a long time with little rest will make you sweat, increase your heart rate, and push you to find new limits. High Intensity Interval Training is what I think the kids are calling it these days. Unlike crossfire boxes where workouts can be segmented and it can be a challenge for folks of different levels, at FFN, Workouts tend to be have a time component and the entire class is devoted to completing that circuit. Common tools are kettle bells and dumb bells for weights (Plates are used for sled drives and a few other exercises, but barbells are rarely employed), lots of pull ups, push-ups, squats and lunges, which if you're doing right, body weight does the trick! Overall, it's a good place. Owners are very personable and welcoming. They emphasize community, but with a family of my own, it's tough to make the potlucks and happy hours work with my schedule, but it's a nice thing to have. With a full time job, a family, and graduate school, it's one less thing to worry about, the workout will be prepared and it will be as challenging as I need it to be, every day, Monday through Saturday.
The front desk staff was welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere in the front room mimics trendy gyms like Hot Yoga Plus and The Dailey Method with bottled water and athletic clothing for sale. So I found myself cursing under my breath when I walked into the workout room and was suddenly in a myself in the middle of an "edgy" atmosphere with loud music playing. The trainer must have sensed my fear because I was immediately told not to worry. You will get an amazing workout here and plenty of attention from the instructor. They are encouraging but not pushy or in your face. You WILL get a serious workout! For those that are curious the workouts are usually station based. It seems to be strength based but there is a strong cardio element as well. In short, the staff and facilities are wonderful and the workout will definitely make the best use of your gym time. If you're on the fence about at least trying them out, I highly encourage you to try a class!
Working out is extremely important to me. So is not spending a whole of money to do so. As is not showering in rather stinky, mildew-y showers. Gold's Gym therefore combines almost everything I am looking for in a gym into one place. They have extensive options for both cardio and strength training equipment, great hours, and are eminently reasonably priced ($10 a month is well worth it to stay healthy). The only complaint I have is the cleanliness of the showers, which appear to have not been thoroughly cleaned since, well, ever. However, if you can stand the showers (or have an alternative place to shower), I highly recommend Gold's as a great place to get in your workout.
Just started going to this gym in the last couple of weeks. I love their slogan of "the judgment free zone". Anyone can go there and feel like they're on a mission to be fit for whatever reason without being judged by their appearance. Everything is super clean, the staff is accommodating and friendly, and their personal trainer (although not always there) is very helpful with questions you have and will walk you through things if he is not in a session. Definitely go for a great comfortable atmosphere while working out. No judgment!
My daughter attended daycare here when she was two years old. The teachers are great. She could count to 100 at the age of 3, and could count to 10 in Spanish at 2. My daughter was not fully potty trained before starting child care here, after 3 weeks of attending child care here she was fully potty trained. The prices are reasonable, reasonable hours, provides healthy food and snacks. My 19 year old nephew, 6 year old niece and currently my 3 year old nephew has all attended child care here.
This is a gym that is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I love the convince of the gym since you can work out whenever you want, you are not limited to hours and they are always open on holidays. It is a small gym and can get crowded during the busy hours after work, especially the cardio machines. The machines and bathrooms are kept very clean. The staff and ownership has changed multiple times but you typically don't interact with them on a daily basis.
Sorry, but the new facility is overpriced and kind of Belle Meade soccer mom-ish. Also, it's packed in the evenings with kids and parents for kids programs and sports. I was a member at the old Boost which was much better. Not interested in an indoor soccer field, salt water pool, or snob factor. Just want a gym with a fair price. Will leave for Gold's or 24-hour when contract is up like everyone else.
For years I attempted to workout on my own at gyms like the YMCA and Gold's. The problem was that I wasn't pushing myself and therefore, nothing was getting accomplished. The combination of helpful trainers and others around me at Fit Factory is what I need to actually see results. If you're like me, Fit Factory is the place for you.
Boost FitClub is hands down the nicest, most upscale health club. Locally owned, great service and they even have am indoor farmers market! Crazy...these guys are true to giving people a place to discover a healthy lifestyle. Not gonna lie, the move and construction was rough times. However, it was well worth it.
