I signed up a couple months ago and this past summer I have been taking Wess TRX classes. They are so amazing and he is such an incredible instructor. Its so sad that he leaves after the summer though. If any of you are signed up for this gym, during the summer ask about his TRX classes and you wont regret it. You would have to experience it to know exactly what its like.

The gym is really good but I think what makes it amazing is that you actually get to try the training sessions before purchasing. Upon signing up I got to work out with a trainer and it made me realize how fun it could be to work out and the different types of work outs I could do that I would of never thought of in a million years. I did end up purchasing more and got a meal plan and everything. I also know it's not just about your work outs but also about your food intake. Whole new perspective on what I eat and how I work out.

I love Vision Quest! They always put their members first and you can tell that they really care about everyone's fitness goals and results! I feel that they have done everything in their power to help me be as successful as I can be with my weight loss and I am happy to say I am down 20 pounds in 3 months! I have tried for years to lose this weight and it is finally happening with the help of everyone at VQ! Thanks guys!!

Myself and some coworkers joined this gym a while back when it became vision quest and I am happy with what they have done since they took over.. They are friendly who help when you need it, and they care about their members and getting them the results that they want, I love the fact that they give you a free personal training session per month! what other gym would do that?? The trainers are knowledgeable and range in special skills and personalities. There will always be someone there that can help you out! Come and check out my gym!

i really love the look of the place, they have lots of classes, even on the weekends and I love the fact that they are right down town close to everything. Never too crowded to use the equipment and everybody is very friendly. Now after 30 pounds lost in just a few months, I feel great! Just come check it out, you'll get the same results!

Decent gym for low monthly fees. No contract required. I use the gym during my lunch hour about four days a week. It has a basic locker room. I always bring my own towel and soap. They offer several classes although I haven??t taken any. A few people in my office have taken classes but I stay with the treadmill or weight machines. I??ve tried going in about 11:30 a couple of times but it was too busy for my taste so I usually take a later lunch which works out fine.

Everyone is friendly & keeps a smile on their face. I LOVE the free training session every month. Gives me something to work towards - I don't want them to see that I didn't change at all over the course of a month!

I can definitely say that I have never been to a gym where the trainers are SO willing to help out! If I need a spot, have a question about supplements or help with new workout routine ideas someone is always willing to take the time to help me out! I never feel lost in any way when I am in the gym! All the help is what keeps me coming in every day!

Just when I thought Cross Fit was the most challenging work out EVER...along comes TRX! I am impressed, a work out using my own body weight as resistance! Class 3 times a week mixed with a few cardio sessions and my workout week is complete! Finally a perfect workout that keeps me going and enhances my endurance all at the same time....can??t wait till my next class!

not very impressed by most smoothies in the seattle area, and honestly hate to pay $7-8 for a smoothie. to my suprise Vision Quest has a NEW SMOOTHIE bar with great tasting smoothies at a reasonable price. $5.25 for a decent size smoothie that actually tastes yummy. so many different kinds to choose from! The sweet smoothie gall that works there was super helpful and makes a mean "snickers for you." cant wait to see what they add next!!!

I have been coming to vision quest for quite a while now with a few of my co-workers. I know that all of us over time have mentioned cleaning up the womens locker room and possiby upgrading a little. I was out of town on business for an extended amount of time was such a nice suprise to come back to a newly upgraded womens locker room. looks 100 times better and cleaner AND amazing what a fresh coat of pain will do! Glad to be back and appreciate the upgrade Vision Quest! Keep up the good work!

I really like it here, started working out here about 2 months ago. Vision quest is only 3 blocks aways from work so I am able to make it on my lunch break for a quick run. conveniently enough they provide towels which is a PLUS that I don't have to drag my used gym towel home with me every night.
The staff is so friendly and helpful whenever I have a question...and my FAVORITE part about the gym is that they have reasonably priced tanning. another convenience due to the fact there is hardly any tanning salons in the downtown area that are close to my work. Would definitely recommend vision quest to a business woman on the GO like myself.

the training staff here is very nice and motivational, however; after joining, I found the management staff to be quite unethical. They will work very hard to get you to sign up and have difficult exit policies. They ??lost? my cancellation papers and charged me an extra 3 months plus a $25 equipment maintenance fee. Find another gym, even if it might cost a bit more, in the end you will be happier. But if you do join, make sure to keep any paper work they give you safe and MAKE COPIES. You will need them.

Love the TRX class with Wes. I'm so impressed with how much that class has helped me tone and lean my body. I'm thrilled with the results and the technique of the exercises. It really makes me work but since its all body weight I know its nothing I can't do.

Good Location, Great Facilities I just signed up with Vision Quest! I'd checked out a few other gyms in town and this one is by far one of the best. The location is ideal for folks living/working downtown and the staff was really nice. The equipment is in good working order and the hours are great!

Great location downtown, so glad that Vision Quest took this over. Very friendly staff and willing to help at every turn. No hidden fees for the 19 a month that you pay and the classes are free with membership. Lots of cool equipment, and never too busy to get a workout in on a machine. Zumba is great!

Wow, I don't see what any negatives reviews would be about. I switched here from LA Fitness and am so much happier. I never received the high pressure sales tactics for memberships or trainers that I did at LA Fitness. Seriously, you get what you pay for. I get the equipment I need, the service I like and have absolutely no complaints. Great Job!!

Filthy gym. Beware of high pressure sales tactics. Staff only cares about headcount because they are desperate.

Also, once you're signed they will try to screw you with the small print.

The gym was ok. It had plenty of equipment. My issue with this gym is that they are the kind of gym that will try to push trainer sessions at extra cost until they get tired. But the worse experience was the charges after cancelling the membership. They retain the last month paid with the first month on top the additional month that they charge you after giving a 30 days notice. I told them that was against the law and asked them not to charge me again. They still did to me and my wife. Bottom line, after you've given a 30 days notice you will end paying 2 months worth of service when you shouldn't. Illegal practice but lesson will be learnt - soon they will receive a class action lawsuit just like 24 hour fitness did.

I've been a member at this gym 3 times in the past 8 years or so. Originally, it was pure fitness but I didn't notice much difference. It is so convenient I tried to make it my gym, but three registrations and three cancellations for me.

For me, the staff was just too rude and the facilities too run down. Theft is an issue, so be sure to lock all items up. Everytime I signed up, I could only tolerate for about 8 months, and then the service/management would be so bad I would quit. It is literally right across the street from where I work, so after a year would pass I signed up again hoping for better. No luck. I tried a third time but no change in 8 years. Its dirty, there rude, and the facilities are old.

I would try Epicenter up the street, the Y, SAC, or Notilus in Wamu tower if its still there.

If this gym is close it is a reasonable choice. The equipment is new and varied. If you work close it is a good place where you can workout. The staff is friendly and tries to help. The classes and teachers are great and they are included in your membership. The trainers are amazing, however very expensive. Otherwise it is a good value. Place is not deluxe to keep the price down...it is only 35 dollars a month. The locker rooms are pretty shabby, the hot tub is never open, the steam room is kind of stinky, the free towel service are these tiny little scratchy towels. The other negative part is the overly obvious salesmanship that is a part of this establishment. You walk in and they sell you a membership and they try to sell you a fitness package. I felt kind of like I was buying a car or something. However I go there, it is close to work, and I can workout exactly the way that I want to, with out having to go very far. So if you want a value of a gym, to work out in and don't care about all the bells and whistles, that is what you get with xplore fitness.

The classes and teachers are great and they are included in your membership. The trainers are amazing, however very expensive. Otherwise it is a good value. Place is not deluxe to keep the price down...it is only 35 dollars a month. The locker rooms are pretty shabby, the hot tub is never open, the steam room is kind of stinky, the free towel service are these tiny little scratchy towels. The other negative part is the overly obvious salesmanship that is a part of this establishment. You walk in and they sell you a membership and they try to sell you a fitness package. I felt kind of like I was buying a car or something. However I go there, it is close to work, and I can workout exactly the way that I want to, with out having to go very far. So if you want a value of a gym, to work out in and don't care about all the bells and whistles, that is what you get with xplore fitness.

This is the first review I've ever written on one of these sites... which is a testament to how highly I think of Xplore. Good old-fashioned wanting to spread the word. It's got a great vibe from the second you walk in, and you get the sense that everyone - members and staff - genuinely enjoys being there. Really, if you're downtown and have a few minutes to stop in, you'll see what I mean. I have never enjoyed going to the gym before, and I now actually find myself looking forward to going after work everyday (WEIRD). They've got a lot of activities going on that are all included in the membership... I've tried out some classes and I went on a weekend hike led by one of the trainers. Good stuff... they've got a lot of excursions I'm looking forward to checking out. And if you're looking for new people in your life, it's actually pretty easy to make friends at Xplore.

Also, I'm what you might call a Weakling, and I don't feel at all ridiculous pumping my 8-pound dumbells next to guys benching 3 times my body weight. Great atmosphere.

So yeah, I'm a big fan of Xplore. I've been a member for a few months now. And no, I don't work there... I'm skeptical of reviews like this myself. I thought maybe making my username my email address (@yahoo) would help remove doubt ~ shoot me an email if you feel so inclined. There's more where this came from. :)

Pros: Friendly/no-pressure staff, plenty of machines

I joined Xplore Fitness back in January, and while I initially did it because it was close by, they've made a lot of improvements to the facility and it looks great! They have a good training staff, free towel service, a few awesome classes (power hour!), an in house massage person, a big clean hot tub etc.

Could use newer tvs upstairs but otherwise great!

I've always dreaded going to the gym in the past but did anyway but with very little enthusiasm... After my two free sessions with Madison at Xplore, and taking a few of the outdoor classes, I've finally gotten excited about getting in shape! Madison also agreed to work with me once a month for no extra charge. I love this gym!

Pros: Huge facility, great staff, lots of extras!

Cons: Free parking only from 4-7

I joined Xplore Fitness through my office, which has some sort of corporate deal with them. Because of this, I didn't have to pay a joining fee and my monthly fee is less than usual. In addition, the gym offers two free consultations with a personal trainer as well as monthly checkups.

If it weren't for these benefits, I probably wouldn't have joined. The gym itself is nice, pretty spacious for the building it occupies. There are plenty of cross-trainers and treadmills either upstairs or down, and there are plenty of weight machines as well as free weights to utilize. However, some of the machines are sort of old, and a few are missing pieces to the pins that hold the weight on a machine. In addition, there isn't much air conditioning, either upstairs or in the locker room, so it gets pretty hot.

One good thing I will mention is that its not overly crowded. I've been going directly after work, and by the time I change and am ready to exercise, there aren't that many people working out. The trainers all seem really nice and helpful as well.

I have been a member of Xplore Fitness since February. My experience at Xplore has been nothing but pleasant. It is so close to my office, I like to go for my cardio before I start work. The reception desk is always ready to welcome you with a smile, a "Good Morning!" greeting & complimentary towel service. The new tanning beds are awesome and they always have one available, I have even seen employees from other gyms go there to tan! They are that good. You get a free personal training session when you sign up for membership (mine was with John, an ex-Marine, he really taught me a lot in that hour) & they have something called an "Outdoor Concierge" to get you active outdoors. He creates a calendar every month of recommended outdoor & fitness-related activities you can participate in, it is very informative! The most important thing I can say about Xplore is that not once have I ever felt pressured into buying personal training, supplements, or even to sign up for membership.
