Pacific Island Fitness
I think this gym has the best classes and instructors on the Big Island. I took Katie Moore's spin class and it kicks butt. She has great energy and she is extremely motivating. She also teaches Zumba and it is the busiest class there. There are probably over 50 people in there . . it is sexy, its fun and boy is it a workout. This is the place to go for Zumba.
The remodel of the locker rooms is spot on just what we needed and Carol's Cafe offers the healthiest food for pre and post workouts.

It is now June 18th 2008 - and Pasqual has made an incredible difference in the Fitness facility. New Treadmills, Ellipticals, Floorings AND he is currently adding a Mezzanine floor to increase the number of cardio machines and stretching area. All the "construction" phase issues have been dealt with. Chidcare is now handled by "Kids' Corner" nearby with a pass issued by the gym. Main gym is cooled by a HELIPCOPTER sized fan blade that works really well.

Price of membership has gone up modestly like $50 over the year. If you tally up the $$$$ that has gone into infrastructure, equipment with the price rise, it is an even better deal today.

Carol's Cafe continues to offer the healthiest and tastiest HEALTHY diet on the island. All the best trainers go to her for lunch.

The Spin classes by Katy are great for circuit training. I'm sure the other classes are good but I like the interval training on and off the bike.

I applaud the owner Pasqual for looking long term. As a local business owner myself and a competitive athlete, I know he's taking a financial hit refurbishing the gym to such a high level. Kudos for his foresight, NO COMPLAINTS ! It was so much worse before !!

Aloha - Do check it out

Pasqual Bernal, the new owner, took over the old Gold Gym about a year ago and he has made some changes - some good, some bad:

Gave up the Gold's franchise - bad for existing members as they lost travel pass privileges

Closed the child care service

On holidays, the gym either closes earlier, or does not open at all.

The first question I asked the new owner a year ago was, "Are you going to raise the fees of the existing members?" He said no.
Well, the fees went up last month, with no advance notice. He stated, however, that existing members are still paying less than new members.

The facilities have been renovated and cleaned up with new bathrooms, flooring, new equipment, etc. However, the new flooring in the aerobics room (closed and air conditioned) still smells like the rubber/glue used for the flooring a month later. How can anyone on the aerobic machines (treadmill,ellipticals, bicycles) breathe when the rubber/glue odors are still very strong and toxic smelling?

IMO, the jury is still out on this gym, but my suggestion is to check it out for yourself and decide if it is right for you.
