Huge gym that was new....
If you can find a parking space, the gym has a lot more room and there usually isnt a wait for equipment, which is a refreshing change. You are greeted by very cheery and polite individuals at the counter, which is nice! I had to upgrade membership but got a deal, and it was totally worth it.

Of course items get worn over time, but this gym has enough traffic to warrant new items to replace the already failing ones..treadmills look old and are starting to feel old, mats and weights in classroom seem very dirty. No one walks around cleaning anymore... my step pushes around on the floor because it's not clean, so i clean things myself but you cannot really clean everything you touch. They have great classes and instructors - Kristin is a great instructor for yoga and SET and is totally motivating and helpful...as is Teresa for an awesome (and fun!) hour of spinning. On the other hand, if you want to be pushed beyond your physical limitations and get yelled at - try Jim's SET class!
Pros: more space than usual, great class options, free towels
Cons: no parking, seems dirty, things are breaking already
