Description of service

The activation fee for the gym was $80 and the monthly bill is only $10 as long as you pay the full annual cost and activation fee up front. This gym has vast array of free weights as well as a large circuit training area. Basically more machines then I could ever hope to use. Also they have atleast 10 each of stationary bikes, elyptical machines, stairmasters, and treadmills. They have a sauna and multiple types of tanning beds, from the traditional lie down beds to the high powered stand up one.They also offer onsite daycare for $5 while you work out.


Review of Service

Everyone at this gym is really nice and extremely helpful. Although I didn't pay for the personal trainer I feel like I didn't need to since the staff always offers to help, or correct my form or simply answer any questions I have. My only issue with this gym was the activation fee. Many gyms either don't charge one, or waive it if you pay all your yearly costs upfront. Since the monthly fee was so low I do feel that made up for the activation fee.


Tips

When you go to a gym to get a membership, make sure to ask tons of questions. If they don't offer any promotions ask anyway. Sometimes they simply don't offer until asked. It can't hurt to also know the prices of their competitors. Most gyms I have been to will meet or beat any competitors costs, unless they offer way more services.
