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.
This gym sucks! Only a couple of classes with energetic teachers, the other classes are boring. I can do a better job teaching some of these classes and I am not even a fitness instructor. Customer service sucks! Charges you double than L.A. Fitness. Have old fitness equipment and not enough parking. I hope a big company like L. A. Fitness takes an interest in building something in Vero and fight the bureaucracy for opening a facility here. We cancelled and the sales rep didn't even clarify that an extra month was going to be withdrawn from the account because we needed to cancel 30-days in advance. No curtesy at all. We refuse to do business with companies that are shady and not customer oriented.
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.
