It's an excellent gym. It's clean, top-notch gym. I haven't used the trainers. What I like about the equipment is that there is a lot of the machines I used. I don't ever have to wait because there is about 10 or 12 of everything that I used and I've never seen it to where I had to wait to get on. I don't use trainers but they seemed fine.

Big school with top instruction. New head instructor Mr. Benisch is excellent for both adults and children. Price is a little high but compares to other big schools in the area. You do get what you pay for with karate schools in town. I would recommend my friends to come here!

They have been good. I have taken swimming aerobics classes, both my husband and I use the machines, the cardio machines, and when the weather is good we walk in the outside trail. So we have used a little bit of everything. It is very clean, well maintained, the staff is very nice to work with. It gets pretty busy because there a lot of people who like it and use it. They have a variety of ways to join. One can join as an individual, or as a family, or join for the outside pool or for the whole thing. They have the Sliver Sneakers for anyone who is of that age group and if you qualify for Sliver Sneakers that is free. The individual membership for a month is $40.

I joined

in 2011. I was convinced to buy the personal training visits at $120 a month for four 30 m visits (1 yr. contract, which continues until I formally cancel). The main selling point was when the manager said "YOU don't

THEM." After trying out the various personal trainers in the gym, I was very dissatisfied. They were indifferent, unmotivated, disinterested, looking at their cell phones, etc.. I even had one who only spent 15 m. with me, because he ran late on a previous member. I continued to pay for this PT for an additional two years, before finally canceling the PT monthly charge (at this point I had around 70 visits stored up). I continued to pay my $54 monthly family membership. So, when my son decided to give personal training a try on January 17, 2015, he was told that all my personal training visits had expired! When I spoke to the gym manager, he claimed they expired on January 15, 2015 - HOW CONVENIENT! When I explained that the manager in 2011 told me that we don't

has been able to customize the perfect program for me as my strength first doubled, then tripled!
All of this safely achieved with a consistent focus on biomechanics/technique and nutrition.
I appreciate the fact that this is a private 2,400 sq. foot gym with training equipment I have not seen in any other SoCal gym. One on one training with no distractions.
I drive 45 minutes each way, 3 times a week. I hate the drive,but love the results!

It was actually very good. We ended up working out a package deal with them. I talked with the owner and we worked out a deal where my wife and I got private instruction for half a dozen sessions. It was actually a really great bargain considering we got one on one instruction, which was really nice. Their direction is very good at what they do. It is very clear that the person we work with for the instruction knows a lot about

. They have been doing it for a long time. They were very good teachers. The particular instructor that we had was very good; very knowledgeable and very patient with us as we were beginners. The owner was a little bit of a stickler on price. He didn’t seem like super flexible on working with us. We ended up coming to an agreement but I was actually trying to get another session or two in there for the same price and he stood firm. It was fine but he just seemed a little inflexible on that point. On the plus side, the instructor we had, her name was

They are okay, but there was an issue over billing where they kept billing for late charges, but I don't know if that was the company itself or that particular franchise. However, they are very inexpensive and you can’t get any place that is cheaper.

I go to
Columbia Fitness Centers Provider Name Locked
that is where I go. I have been injured but they are a good gym. I would recommend them. I just went there and I liked it. That is a good place. That is the only place I ever go to. I would say that to me they are the best because that is the only place, I don't go any place else. The price is advertised, it is 10 dollars a months, there is an initiation fee and then 10 dollars a month, it is all over the televisions, everywhere. The communication is very good. The customer service is very good.
