My name is Luke, and I'm addicted to the gym. Not just any gym though- St. Charles Avenue Athletic Club. St. Charles Avenue Athletic Club is such an incredible and comfortable place to work out. I've had several gym memberships over the years (and for nearly two years I've lived in a building with a gym on the bottom floor), but for the last 6.5 months I've worked out there 5-6 days a week every week. I have never in my life worked out as hard and/or consistently since joining this gym. I credit a lot of that to Mario's amazing trainers and the variety of classes offered at St. Charles Ave Athletic Club. The Edge Specialized Indoor training class is easily my favorite. The Edge room is huge and comfortable and air conditioned- and made for that kind of training. The class is designed to give you a full body workout. It's not easy- in fact, it's always hard, but that's how you know it’s working. That, and the results you WILL see if you participate consistently. I've worked out with all of the Edge instructors, and they're all excellent, but because of my schedule I mostly go to Kosta's classes (he's also a great personal trainer). His personality and sense of humor really go a long way when you're pushing yourself to get through one more set of snatches or get-ups. Plus, his awesome, high energy music playlist in another huge motivator that is definitely worth mentioning. I know those details might sound unimportant, but having someone who can push you while making sure you're having fun makes an enormous difference. Think about it- you’re a lot more likely to stick with a workout routine if it’s enjoyable and not miserable- and sticking with the routine consistently is what it’s all about! Join up, and see for yourself. Their terms are really laid back. You can even try an Edge class for free before deciding if you want to commit.

Member for 6 years. Never had a problem with my billing. Several of my friends, coworkers, and relatives have been members of the gym and never had a problem cancelling their memberships when they moved. The gym has A LOT to offer. Its the best deal in town for $49 per month (they have never increased to cost of membership in the 6 years I have been a member). They offer free parking, classes, towel service, lockers and month to month contracts with no penalty to cancel and no enrollment fees. I cancelled my membership when I left NOLA for grad school with no problems or fees and signed back up when I moved back(at the same price). My friend is a teacher and they gave her a discount rate of $39 per month. They do that for teachers, students, and im pretty sure for some other groups. She loves the variety of free classes and the ladies only workout area they have. Although I havnt done any of the classes I LOVE the free weight room they have downstairs. They have dumbbells that go up to about 160/165lbs. The staff is always very friendly and honest and they always smile when you come in. The gym is very clean and there is someone there to help you all the time. Ive even had the front desk people spot me a couple times. They have plenty of equipment for whatever your workout needs are. The layout, despite being 2 floors, gives plenty of room to workout. They have squat racks, benches, and space to deadlift. I strongly recommend the gym. Its the best deal in town by far, its very affordable at 49 dollars, very clean, friendly, honest, offer excellent classes, cardio equipment and it is located in a very safe part of town with convenient hours of operation.
I've been going 3-5 times a week as a member since June 2014, and from the first day it's been stellar. Enough space in the free weight room to not feel cramped, even with 3 or 4 other guys/girls lifting beside you; weight machines for any workout and ellipticals/treadmills/bikes. Bathrooms are beyond clean; showers provided, along with body wash, shampoo, towels, and lockers. Staff has been helpful, polite, and downright neighborly. There's a separate room for just females to get a workout in (never been, as a man, but I assume it's nice, too), and personal trainers or classes for any activity you'd like to sign up for. It's the best gym I've been to in this city.

The owner Sarah is enthusiastic and very skilled in many work out techniques but, will work with you on your level , The circuits are very effective and having Sarah around is like having your very own personal trainer.

I have been a member of Girl Power for 2 months. I joined Girl Power because I was looking for a place to work out where I could feel comfortable. I looked at other gyms in the area, but I felt out of place there. There were always lots of machines that I didn't feel familar with and lots of bodybuilders. Girl Power offered me a workout that was easy to learn and follow in an enviornment where I feel like I fit in. Girl Power also has weights and cardio machines so I can make my work out as challenging as I choose. - Lashandra Brown
Girl Power Fitness is the right fit for me. The atmosphere is cozy, relaxing, and motivating. It's sort of a quick get away from a busy schedule. In the short time I've been a member, I can definitely say that Sara, the owner is high energy, and she challenges you to push yourself. Sometimes I'm like "not today," but when I do push and take the time to fit it into my schedule, I feel refreshed. Still working on being consistent. To be continued...until I reach my goal- a Healthier, Lighter, ME :-)
I used to go to a gym that didn't acknowledge your presence unless you stood in their face to ask them a question that they couldn't be bothered with. Now I go to Girl Power and get personal help with loosing the unnescessary weight that I put on with age. I get to work out hard and be in a fun atmosphere where Sarah pushes me harder and increases my endurance for more cardio, and strength training. I would recommend that anyone with any desire to get in shape or just want to work out to join us at Girl Power.
Before coming here I visited at least 3 other gyms and none of them really felt right. I like that when you walk in Ms. Sarah greets you by name and is willing to help you meet your goals. Not many gyms include personal training, boot camp, and zumba in for one price let alone a reasonable price, but you get all of those things here. I also learned new ways to work out like the kettle bell and the circuit equipment. I'm glad I chose this gym and anybody else who chooses it won't be disappointed.
I absoultely love this Gym and the atmosphere is amazing. The staff are very friendly and always there to help you with whatever you may need help with. Sarah is not only there to help you focus on what you are trying to do but also there to show you exactly what you need to do. Her Boot camp classes are intense and awesome. I would recommend this gym to anyone who is looking for an all girl, fun, amazing place to go to bring your sexy back or just to be fit....
The gym is a great place. It is always clean and the staff is very friendly and honest. They are very flexible and I never had a problem with anyone in 3 years. Never had a problem with my automatic debit from my account. I think is the best deal in town. Thier contracts are month to month, no enrollment fee and no penalty to cancell. Those policies lets you know that they are not trying to get over anybody.
