"The scheduling check in desk can be hit and miss however everyone is very nice and helpful. The same is true for the call in number, some people are more knowledgable" than others and sometimes you can get misleading information. The radiologists if fantastic and if you have questions about imaging, ask to him call you directly. He has been so helpful on many occasions. in rehab is one of the best in . He is pushy in the best of ways. Cardiac rehab at the gym is also hit and miss. Some of the younger, less experienced therapists do nothing. My mom went there for a year and the young woman helping her did nothing to expand her range of motion, improve balance or flexibility or endurance - the whole point of going to rehab. We finally got a new therapist after getting 's help and the quality of care improved tremendously. Basically, if you aren't getting the care you need or want for yourself or your loved ones, push harder and the staff at will respond. My mom has also used the senior water exercising program and loved it but hated being cold AFTER the work out. We're working on that one. All in all, is a wonderful facility full of very nice and helpful people who listen. Compared to others I should give them higher ratings but I feel like there is room for improvement.

"Two pools with multiple arthritis exercise classes every week. Great instructors and facilities. No one is made to feel inadequate due to their size, abilities or fitness wear. Perfect for me.

Fitness Center reviews in San Mateo


(I began a workout regime with in
May of 2009. At that time I didn't have a real weight issue, however I didn't
have any muscle and I could definitely benefit from exercising, if for no
other reason than to be healthy. I worked out with from May of 2009 ...More until
approximately August of 2010. When I began the workout program I weighed 142
pounds and I currently weigh 132 pounds. So I lost 10 pounds which I have
managed to keep off by continuing to work out on my own at least three times a
week, and I have developed muscle all over my body. What I have really
appreciated from 's training is that he always made sure you not just
worked out for the sake of working out, but he also made sure that you
understood each machine you used, what muscle(s) it worked and how it benefited
your body. Therefore when I travel (which I do quite often with my job) I can
walk into a Fitness Center and know just what to do. I am grateful to him for
imparting his knowledge which has helped me to be more conscious of not only
the importance of exercising but also the importance of your food intake?your daily diet/food choices. When it comes to his training
program, takes a very professional, serious, approach and provides a
pleasant workout environment. This was my first and only time working out with
a professional trainer and I am so glad that I had this opportunity, it has
benefited me greatly!

Great place to work out. Clean facility and professional staff make it a nice place to work out
- Shannon B.

First off, my initial contract had expired, I continued monthly and set my account to NOT auto-renew on their payment website. Still continued to be billed. I wrongfully assumed my non-existant contract would come to an end 1 year after the stated agreement date. NOPE. Then I was told that I need to pay them another month for a service I will not use, ...More and I had to come in person to cancel the contract. REDICULOUS. I cannot stress enough how unprofessionally this was handled...all over $42.50 for one more month. Unbelievable.
- Michael P.

Good to start, but my normally outgoing happy 6 year old daughter got really embarrassed and uncomfortable with interactions with the instructor/owner. My daughter loved taking martial arts classes, was proud of herself and was always excited to go to class until issues with the instructor and admin. After the experience my daughter no longer wanted ...More to take martial arts classes. I hope to get her to reconsider with another facility that may be better suited for young kids. I would not recommend this facility for young children. They will try to get you to sign up for multiple sessions to start. If you want to try them out I highly recommend only paying for one session at a time to start. The location is convenient if you live in and likely the primary reason they get customers. I would look around for a facility that may offer a better experience.

My experience has been fine because I don't use the locker rooms. The price is great and it's three blocks from where I live. The machines are fine. They could fix their machines and water fountains in a more timely fashion.

Everything went very well and my wife and family used the membership a few times a week on average. We elected to pay for a two year membership in full in advance approximately $2400. After about 6 months our family living situation changed and we moved to the far northwest corner of Waukesha County. We wanted to pay our cancellation fee and end ...More our membership due to the far drive. With the zoo interchange detour it takes 50 minutes to get to the far south end of New Berlin. We are certainly a few miles within the 40 mile radius and are obligated to pay the $200 PER MEMBER early cancellation fee. So its now the beginning of October and we closed on our house back in May. We advised Amber of our move back in June and she told my wife that is the only one that can provide us with our refund. My wife approached at the club and mentioned our move and had the audacity to tell her "Oh you will make the drive because there is no where in your area that has as good of daycare as us." Actually we won't make the drive because our three youngest children are the ages 1, 2, and 4 and spending nearly 2 hours in the car to go the gym is far too much for our busy lifestyle. A little compassion would have been appreciated.
We never had any objection to the cancellation fee - even though they are eager to throw the book at us when holding us to our contractual agreement. But here is where our complaint is; its been three months and my wife has made several calls to Amber regarding the processing of our refund and has made three correspondences to regarding the same thing. Amber has responded to each call or email and continues to push it to , who apparently is the only one that can process our refund and who has NOT responded to a single phone call or email. We have been waiting for 2 weeks now since our last email to Amber and . Its been over three months since providing them with our notice to cancel. We just want our money back and would like to move on. What ever happened to good customer service these days?
Overall, the facilities are nice. You probably won't use your membership at all during the nice summer months, but you'll get good use from it during the long winter. Its a nice environment, but apparently the people at the top are very slow to move if you have a problem with something, especially if it involves having some compassion for refunding a families' money after they move.

Shapes is a ladies-only facility with all the bells and whistles-- workout equipment (they just added some TRX training equipment), a nice variety of classes (everything from , to strength training to corebar to yoga to Pound). They also have a cycle room and a pool for pool classes. Treadmills and elliptical machines are available. ...More There is never a wait for any of the machines. There is a hot tub, a steam room, and dry sauna as well. Lockers are available for daily use. The facility is clean ad well maintained. Personal training is available for an extra charge, as well as massages. There's a juice bar there, but I've never used it. The front desk staff knows everyone by name and the instructors are awesome. The club was purchased almost 2 years ago by and , who are very hands-on and always trying to improve things for their customers. They offer a new type of class called Red Warrior that is a blend of martial arts and boot camp that is fun and a different type of workout from the norm. The only suggestion that I would make is to have someone knowledgeable watch the machines to make sure that you are using them correctly. Having been a workout fiend for years, I pretty much have a handle on it, but some newbies could use the help. I have never had a problem with the financial side of this business, but I always renew in full instead of paying monthly. I think if you pay monthly, it's handled by an outside company and I don't know how good that company is. I have used this facility heavily for many years (like 4 to 5 times per week) and I just love it!

The parking is horrible at this location. The equipment is packed in and doesn't give space to feel comfortable walking around the room.
