"Well, the main thing is that this is NOT
chi. Not by any stretch of the imagination. In 3 1/2 months of my practice, I have been coming along." I can do basic moves such as Grasp Bird's Tail; Carry Tiger to Mountain; Brush Knee; Strike Ears; and all the kick sequences. I sent the person who answered the phone there and gave me the email address a video of the style of
chi I am studying so she could see how far I am along in my practice. She did say "This style is different as it is Korean
chi but I'm sure you will enjoy it". I don't really believe that this is a Korean style of
chi. There was not one similar move. There was stretching and frankly bizarre exercises where the participants were essentially punching themselves in the stomach while counting aloud. I had never seen anything like it in my life! And hope never to again. At some point we were lying on the floor in the dark. This is not normal in
chi! I thought to myself, "perhaps when these stretching exercises are over, we will do some
chi". This never happened. Also when I arrived I explained I had a balance problem and
chi was prescribed by my neurologist. I said I had a pair of my
chi shoes with me and assured them they had never been worn outdoors and would be appropriate for a dance studio floor. I wear them at my regular
chi class. In fact, in my regular
chi class, the instructor frowns upon those wearing only socks as they may slip and shoes are more sturdy. The person behind the counter said "I don't know how the others will feel if you wear shoes." Well, I KNOW how I'd feel if I fell and broke my wrist! Been there, done that, no thanks. The person behind the counter then tried to sell me a pair of $15
-socks instead, the kind hospital patients wear. Luckily there was another client who found out my feet were rather large and said the L would never fit as she had smaller feet and wore an XL. There were no XL but the person behind the counter did try to sell me the L telling me they would fit. Anyway, I saved my $15 there at least. I "participated" in the class to the end because 1. I was hoping I could get my money back and felt if I left the class early they would try to tell me they DID do
chi at the end, and 2. Others looked like they were enjoying it and I didn't want to ruin their day by walking out. As I left, the woman behind the counter asked me how I liked it and I said "This was not
chi. I was looking for more floor time" and she had a non-response to that. I thanked her for her time and left. I have called the Customer Service number at the main
website with no response as of yet, and emailed them as well requesting a refund. Also I asked around on social media and a few other friends said they were "roped into"
and it was "not
" either. Also, I'm not sure what this one-on-one assessment was that I was supposed to get? The woman behind the counter talked to me about chakras a bit before joining the class, was that it?

"The doctor walked into the room knowing what was wrong, just from reading the notes. He was very helpful and has continued to be helpful when I have called back" with other questions, even though he turned my care over to my family doctor.

Fitness And Health reviews in Salem

They have excellent classes and excellent equipment. It's a serious gym. The staff is friendly and the environment is very serious and fitness-oriented. They're also good if you're just starting out or if you're overweight. There's nothing embarrassing. Everything is great. Everything is very private. There's no guys leering or people who are skinny that are all over.

I love everything about this place. They offer classes throughout the day with a variety in time of practice, type of practice, and level of practice. The facility is always clean including the restroom and shower area. I cannot say enough good things about this place. You will not be disappointed.

THEN they offered me a "partial credit" as if they were doing me a favor when I have written proof of my cancelation and them accepting it. AWFUL people to work with..

I called the number on the mail today and they directed me to another number because they personally couldn't handle it. They also told me there was nothing they could do about it. I even asked to speak with a supervisor and was denied. They kept asking for my member bar code number which I obviously do not have because the mail that comes is recruiting me to become a member.

It's a really good gym. I'll recommend it to anybody. They're open 24 hours a day, which is nice for my schedule. The facility overall is good, and the customer service is good, as well. They hear your complaints and definitely take recommendations from you.

Classes were great. Can you imagine being taught by a marital artist with 25 years of teaching experience? Other karate instructors do this part time and either clean carpets, take pictures, or work in the crane business. Martial Arts is not their focus. And, Dr.

has a doctoral degree in education. The curriculum included character education as well as wellness. No other school offered this. Excellent skill building as well. Too bad it closed down.

There is a $51 monthly fee. They have 3 pools. It is a very professionally run organization. We deal with the manager, and the staff. They are all very professional, and very informative, and the facility is top notch. The price is very good.

I really like the people there. The trainers are all really good. The people are good. I feel motivated there. I enjoy the whole experience with them. I've really had good experiences with them. They have a really good free weight room and extremely good trainers. They have whatever you're looking for.
