If you need childcare while you workout, they have an excellent staff (not a high turn over). My kids love going to the Kids Club, and I love the time to myself to workout. The classes are great too! The instructors really push you. The only thing I do not like is the cardio machines upstairs. Heat rises so it feels like you're in a cloud of body heat if it's busy. They do have a few machines on the main floor which I usually try to use. For an extra $5 a month you can go to any LA Fitness and reap the benefits of different childcare hours and class schedules. The cost of childcare in unbelievable minimal.

I've been a member for about a year, going 5 days a week since August. While I was able to achieve my fitness goals, it was all on my own. When I first joined, no one showed me how to use the equipment, I had to figure it out on my own. Over the year, I have noticed they do not really take care of issues. The dry sauna has nails poking out of the wood and the wood is loose in some places. The bathrooms are grimy, equipment stays broken for WEEKS. And there's not enough activities to keep you from getting bored with your workout. I'm considering finding another gym.

I used to go in there more, but the locker room is so dirty, if I go I don't bother going in there. The staff is always occupied with other non-work related things...it can be a meat-market for those who are looking. I would definitely not use the kids center for babysitting. I work out and leave.

The daycare always seems over-crowded and the people at the front desk are rarely available and don't smile. The club is not kid friendly. They don't even allow you to bring your infant in to sleep in the carseat while you sweat off the baby weight on an elliptical machine. The machines are often broke, the TVs don't work all the time and they have no kid aquatic classes. The club was nice when I was young, but now that I have a child and a busy schedule, it just isn't for me. If they want to keep clients long term, they should incorporate better family policies.
