Description of service

This broke down into 12 $60 payments and $100 membership fee. This was for usage of two gyms (included indoor swimming pools, weight rooms, indoor running tracks, cardio machinery, tennis courts, racquetball courts, saunas and locker/shower facilities at both locations)and towel service.


Review of Service

The cardio equipment was fairly new, but it didn't last very well. Most of it wasn't rated for people of any real size (as most people don't weigh in over 300lbs), this limited the availability of machinery for those folks who wanted to use the cardio for any real effect. The indoor walking tracks were fairly small, but large enough to accomodate about 150 walkers at a time (they reserved the outside two lanes for runners). There were eight racquetball courts (indoors) which were well maintained as normally two were out being worked on at any given time. This also presented a little bit of a challenge. The saunas were fairly well maintained as were the locker and shower facilities. The towel service didn't seem to be able to keep up with demand at either location.


Tips

Make sure and check out the gym before you join, talk with friends to help identify which gyms may work best for you. Also find out if they have a cancellation policy, incase you decide the gym isn't working for you.
