I could not be more happy with this place. It's clean, fun and the instructors are all great. Tough workouts! But they are all self paced. There were so many different kinds of people but they all had a great workout. I sweat more than ever before.
After moving to the Old NE area, I was considering switching from LAF to Gold's and went in and asked to try it out for the day. Imagine my shock when they refused to give me a pass for the day and I paid $13 to find out that the gym had inferior equipment , more dirt , fewer location options and less room (at a higher rate) than the gym from which I was considering switching. That having been said, from a convenience stand point alone , I probably would have switched to be able to go there a few days a week when on this side of town. I recently bought a groupon for an insanely low price so looked at it as an opportunity to get my money's worth and save some time a few days a week. Having read the "small print" carefully, I walked in with my keys, water and head phones ready to train at which time the front desk kid asked for an id for which I had to walk back out to my car as it is stated NO WHERE on the groupon that an ID must be presented. While I was working on the leg press, a guy came over and slammed his weights on the machine so hard, it caused the entire machine to shake .. while I was doing single leg presses which could have caused serious injury to my knee. He did it not ONCE but THREE times. Seriously? I managed gyms in 3 states and currently own a company in the fitness industry which does close to 7 figures and just celebrated it's 18 year anniversary and would NEVER dream of treating potential customers so rudely. If this is how they treat potential customers, I'd hate to see how they treat their members. I guess that's why they have to run groupons to get new business
My entire family loves this gym. It's an excellent place to workout - modern cardio equipment, Nautilus, free weights/machines, group fitness and cycling classes. The restrooms and shower areas are VERY clean. The staff is super friendly and the cost is reasonable. You'll feel comfortable enough here to recommend it to out of town guests -- even your own parents.
