I joined when the gym was Crunch Fitness because there were not many gyms in the area. The sales people were very pushy, and they require members to sign a contract. There is no way to get out of your contract, aside from paying a lot of money. The weights were adequate; however, the locker room was always dirty, and the showers provided no privacy. The atmosphere of the lockerroom was creepy at best, with people wandering around for long periods of time. On several occasions, I mentioned this to the management, but they chose not to do anything about this problem. I did not renew my contract when it was up, and I would recommend that you be very wary of these type of gyms that require you to sign a contract. The "no membership fee" may be tempting, but you will be stuck in a 2-year contract with no way out. Another quick note: Gyms that require a contract have no incentive to keep you happy because you're stuck with them for 2 years. Gyms that do not require a contract must keep you happy because you don't have an incentive to stay if things get bad.

After it changed ownership (or name from Crunch to Bally) everything became bad: Lots of people, getting less equipment: Instead of fixing the broken staff, they remove it

I like that they offer many classes and have a swimming pool, but their locker room area is totally outdated, smelly, and their pool is often closed (chlorine content to high). It's a great location, but needs to be renovated on a big scale.

I used to like this place but it has gone downhill over the years. The upstairs air conditioning is horrible resulting in sweat all over the equipment that doesn't look cleaned that often. The women's jacuzzi hasn't worked in months.
