Champion Fitness!! I love their Zumba program (Tues and Thurs) and Beth's sculpt/toning class! Check it out!

i like planet fitness in century square. I can bring a friend with the upgraded membership who will not need to endure a sales pitch to be my guest. It seems to be a happier more social place,.

Planet Fitness in Century Square. Very clean facility & ALL of their equipment works. Also friendly, helpful staff. This facility also doesn't charge you extra if you would like to work out with a personal trainer.

LA Fitness in Southland shopping center. It's clean and well maintained and has a variety of classes. I tried Fitness 19 in Caste Village, it was too crowded and didn't have much to offer. I also tried Champion Fitness, the machines were not well maintained, most elipticals were broken, they didn't have many classes to offer, and it was hard to take a fitness class on carpeting.

I also heard that Healthtrax was VERY nice, but expensive.

Was also a member of Champion & Fitness 19 & left for the same reasons Sandra. Haven't tried LA Fitness yet.

I second that! It's the price I need for all of the basic equipment I use.

Fitness 19 in caste village is a horrible place to workout. It is very dirty all of the time (i saw the same used bandaid on the floor for 3 days....so gross!) It is way over populated and fire code violations need to be looked into during the rush hour time period. This would be the absolute last place I would bring my child to daycare. Unfortunately if there was a fire, in the mad rush and the very thin hallway leading to it, you would never get to your child in time. There is no locker room so if you like sitting on the floor to change your shoes (thats if you can find a spot to sit down on the dirty floor) then this is the place for you. And finally if you decide to leave, you better find a lawyer because there are tons of accounts of people being charged after they cancel and even being charged for training sessions they did not recieve. If you do decide to Ignore my warning atleast do yourself one favor and NEVER pay for anything in advance!
