The staff is great and the trainers are so helpful. I also like that they are open 24/7. Makes it easy being a college student and having a weird schedule. The equipment is great and the it's such a positive and motivating environment. A lot of what they have to offer, you can't get anywhere else around here.

Dishonest and not friendly. Better to look elsewhere if you are looking for a new membership. Any business that has to mislead you to buy there service, does not have good service.
I have been using this location, as well as their other 2 newer locations in Kalamazoo, for almost 5 years now. I am always greeted whenever I walk into the gym, which I appreciate because I am giving them business. There has always been someone available if I have questions about equipment or some general training exercise. And everyone there really knows their stuff! The staff is fit and friendly, and a lot of members train for competitions and shows. I like the gym because while there isn't a lot of fluff, it's all about working out, which is what I am there to do. I feel I get exactly what I pay for - several different kinds of weights and machines as well as a lot of cardio machines. I've had other gym contracts as well and they all do the same thing as far as once-a-year equipment fees and 1-2 month cancellation notices, so nothing new there. Overall I recommend this gym to anyone looking to get and stay healthy!
I give this place 1 star because it's the lowest allowed. I joined this gym because it was in the small town I live in and the price was average. WATCH OUT FOR EXTRA CHARGES AND HIDDEN DETAILS IN THE CONTRACT. Their contracts are all over the board as to how much and what fees they charge. I guess it depends on who signs you up and how badly the gym needs money that month. I know several people who's differ greatly but all have the same end result... you can't cancel early without a buy out. I signed a 2yr for myself and a guest for $30 a month... but that also included an annual $50 fee for "equipment upkeep". The equipment has never been "up kept", it is all very worn with some being broken... Not sure what they spent that $100 on. The building is looking more run down everyday with flaking plaster and rags shoved around the AC unit. The "kids area is a Hole in the wall with no doorway, you lift your child over a 3ft half wall and set them in the "room" and have to reach into the hole over the half wall to get them back out. The best part is the SCAM they run with NFS.. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR AUTOMATIC BILLING!!! They have NFS do their auto billing. That expiration date on your contract is just a suggestion... there is supposedly a small box on the contract that MUST be checked or you are entered into automatic renewal. An employee told me that they put 90% of their contracts into auto renewal. This means when your contract expires, NFS keeps charging your account, The gym washes their hands and tells you that you must deal with NFS to cancel...NFS tells you that they require YOU to give them a 60 day notice of cancellation. This means that when you think your done with Strength Beyond Paw Paw and their shack of a gym because your contract has expired...SURPRISE! you get hit with 3 more payments to NFS.
