I've been going to this location since its first opening day. Initially, it was great; bright, clean, large, super friendly staff, ample parking and the variety of class offerings fit my changing schedule. I actually lost 20lbs attending most of the cardio and pilates classes. I LOVED it --past tense.

Now, with a new fitness manager, finding a good or even decent offering of cardio classes is like the slim pickings off a chicken cracus. They seemed to have fired or forced-out most of the great and previous instructors with, again, very slim pickings left.

The new fitness manager PRETENDS to care about member feedback but you only get BS excuses like, "can't find any instructors for this or for that." For example, there was a very loyal group of Zumba followers (Carrie was AWESOME) and despite telling the manager repeatedly how happy we were with the class and how we wanted more of them, he instead CANCELED the only Zumba class they offered. Despite our repeated requests for more variety of cardio classes, he reduced their numbers to barely one class (besides cycling) on most days. However, we did note how now this new fitness manager gave himself MORE classes to teach. To be fair, he is a great instructor (I LOVE him more as an instructor) but as a fitness manager --no so much : (

WE miss Debbie Delarosa *SIGH*

Thus, if you are seeking a good variety of cardio classes, pay close attention to the fitness class schedules on their sites and then chose the location with the most variety (in addition to home/work approximation)...it WON'T be Equinox South Bay (which is BTW, located in the city of Hawthorne, FYI). I'm seriously considering switching gyms as Pete's irrational change at his whim class schedules do not justify the high membership monthly fee of $134.
