The best part of the Carrollwood Shapes is the training program. The trainers are very competent. The physical appearance of the interior of the gym re cleanliness, size, and especially the pool area is poor.

My problem, which I have been working since before the H1N1 scare three years ago or so, is the horrible condition of the swimming pool. I have shown the pool to various staff members several times; I have spoken to several staff members a number of times. Friends of mine have done the same. I emailed the owners a few weeks ago. I have not heard back yet.

The pool is very dirty. Yellow stuff swirls in the corners when disturbed; black mold grows on the tiles at the ledge. The pool frequently has black stuff floating in it. I recently learned that the Carrollwood Shapes does not hire a pool cleaning company, but depends on the regular cleaning crew. Good grief.

The only response I havee gotten so far re the dirtiness of the pool: the cleaning people sign their sheet that they have cleaned the pool; the health department signs off on it four times a year; we keep telling corporate but they don't do anything, etc.

So far the staff has been pleasant, although when it comes to getting people to renew their membership, they can be too aggressive. I did talk to the Shapes managers about this, and I wrote to corporate about that, and the person responsible for that over zealous behavior to me and others was sent to another Shapes.

The condition of the weight training area is not the greatest. There were two leaks, each of which took a while to repair. The mats are well used and worn. The area is small. Some days it is so crowded that working in the weight training area is impossible. Of course, the contract says this may happen.....and it does, but what is corporate doing to enhance our gym? They bought 2 or 3 new treadmills.

We are charged an annual "club enhancement fee." I wonder what they are using our money to do...There is little evidence at all of enhancement in the Carrollwood gym.

More and more members are talking about going to LA Fitness, or one of the other Shapes gyms. The corporate office happily increases our fees, but should remember that it is we who pay them and keep them in business. You'd think they'd want to make sure we are in an environmentally healthy gym. We respectfully ask for a clean pool, a clean steam room area, clean bathrooms. The rest: the over crowded conditons which make us have to be careful walking around so as not to bump into machines we can deal with. Crowdedness does not causes disease. Mold and dirt does.

Shapes is a great place for women looking to get into shape. The staff is really friendly and helpful and the gym is women only so you dont feel uncomfortable. They offer a variety of classes for every skill level plus free childcare. I think it is the best womens gym around..
