Perfect for the over-40 crowd.
We checked out 5 local fitness centers. 24-hour fitness with their 1000 machines - 90% of which are to bulk-up arms, chest, etc. are definitely not what I want or need. Completely lacking on core system maintenance.
This Bally, though much smaller, has plenty of machines for the body's core - lower back, obliques, upper back, etc.
People are helpful. Friendly atmosphere. Equipment, spa, bathroom are clean. Out of the 5, this is the one we chose.
Dynamite Trainer!. Hey Chad! Thanks for the breath of fresh air today. Your positive energy is motivating and you are so much fun to be around. Time always flies.
DO NOT sign up with them.. had a three year contract with them( haven't gone it two). I just finished my contract and i have spent all morning trying to cancel my membership. you can not cancel over the phone or on there web site. they give you an address. But be for i got an address i spent 20 mins on the phone with there automated phone customer service just trying to talk to a real person. when i got through the person was rude and not helpful at all. I also could not hear a word she said because of all the background noise on there end. I had to go to this wonderful forum to help me cancel. dont just talk my work for it. keep checking them out on line. there is a mass of people that have similar stories to mine, if not worse.
This budget gym trims the fat off its patrons at streamlined facilities..
Most Ballys stick to the basics for their design. Televisions broadcast silently above multiple rows of cardio machines; mirrored walls act as the primary decorative components. But thanks to high-energy television ads and low-impact membership premiums, this national fitness chain has steadily attracted a clientele bent on saving money while losing weight or gaining muscle.
Using fairly standard strength-training equipment and/or racks well-stocked with free weights, the best of the trainers here, who are classified at four different levels, can be as skillful as those found at costlier gyms. For group classes, signature exercise options include Spinning and Powerflex, as well as a number of patented routines inspired by Tae Kwon Do.
