The problem, as I see it with the JC, is ownership and poor mgt. They don't seem to really care about the members, just how they wish to run the club. The latest shift in the equipment rooms clearly illustrate this. Now the machines are so bunched up there is often little to no room to get from machine to machine. I was trying to use one of the legs machines, and in order to change the sit location, I had to put my butt in the face of the person using the machine next to it. The music is often so loud that I have to pump up my earplugs to drown it out, which of course is bad for my own personal hearing. Since new changeover, it is crazy going form one Mac, to another without having to sneak one's way across the floor The smith machines are so close to the wall that my knees hit when doing bench presses, so I have to change the bench around, if there is one, and of course lack of room to shift it without putting it on end. No one, and this is more users fault, seem to take weights off the machines when done, but of course no employee ever goes around to straighten up, at least that I've seen. There is lots of equipment at the gym, but it is too cramped up, better to rid the gym of some of the least used stuff and create a better atmosphere. Heck, I seem to leave the gym more stressed out than when I entered. I don't use the pool, classes, courts, or food service so I cannot comment. Seems to me that the club spends more time tryng to get new members rather than asking the one's there how to improve.

I'm a former member of about 4 yrs. The reason that I left was simple, too busy, all to often had to skip exercises because of sitters on the machines, who talk to someone else or take too long to complete their sets. Secondly, too many who use the cardio equipment talk too loudly to their friend on the equipment beside them, or talk on cell phones. I had to wear bose headphones to block them out. The price is right, but too busy, and I went during the day. Cannot imagine the nighttime crowds. Staff was good, clean, water bottle holders on most machines, and plenty of paper towels to wipe down after use.Just to make sure, I left as it was too busy and did not care for the users misuse of the gym.
This place is quirky, fun, completely comprehensive, and not a GYM at all, but a wellness center. The staff are very invested in your health and fitness. Ask for either Jordan or Dan. They will take better care of you than ANY "chain" gym ever would. They also have tons of kid activities - an especially great thing during school vacations.
nice clean place with all the equipment you need. Classes for everything under the sun including water-aerobics. (free towels and lockers with locks) Staff friendly and looking for ways to help you achieve your goals. Best Place in Vero Beach. It has a cafe too. Best of all it is not noisy and always cool.
Wonderful facility. A large variety of classes for everyone. Staff is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Although some equipment is old they work just fine - if you know how to use them!!!!! I love it there and wouldn't go anywhere else!!!
I and my husband have been going to Max for over 4 years. We have seen changes, some for the good, some not but all and all a nice place. The owners really put a good effort into their exercise classes. Their prices are very reasonable too.
Very clean, staff is nice and equipment is great. Love that it is open 24 hours. I get a a wonderful workout there and enjoy the atmosphere.
