Before signing the contract talk to current members. The gym promises a lot of amenities (Zumba classes, pool, Sauna, Steam room) what they don't tell you are that some of the repairs take weeks and you don't get any type of incentives or discounts for the time you lose. Zumba classes are now being cut down to 65 per class which is totally crazy because they use to cram 140 people per class. Yes, that violates a fire code, but why was it ok for the past year with 140 people per class? Steam room was closed for about 5 months for repairs and most of the time is not clean, pool is close due to repairs now during pool classes kids and adults interrupt class all the time. Few people have fallen by the pool and nothing has been done to address the issue and you take all liability by signing the contract. There is no consistency in rules that of course are not disclosed during contract signing. Once you sign they have you and you will pay each month even if you don??t use it.

I recently went in to try this gym out, looking for something to be different that 24Hr fitness. But, I got pushy sales people, that didn't listen to what I had to say, and a personal trainer that they MADE me do for insurance purposes, that treated me so bad simply because I wanted to take the classes instead of sign up for his training, saying to me "so you want to procrastinate instead of reach your goal", ummm no, that is why I am here!. Then the front desk girl was rude to us as we asked for a Manager to speak with. They need to work on their customer service.....but then again, once your in, and sign an agreement, they get your money for 3 yrs. whether you show up or not, right?

At first glance this exercise center seemed to have everything. The pool is great if you are a swimmer. The jacuzzi is a bonus. If you have children then the fun center is ideal. However upon closer inspection we noticed a few things. There is a lot of equipment but they are not of the quality of those at Anytime Fitness. Those at Anytime Fitness are more expensive, utilize memory foam instead of being hard like boards, and have personal HD TVs on a lot of the stairsteppers, treadmills and bicycles. Of course you have to bring your own headsets. Also they are smoother during use and not at all jerky. But getting back to In Shape, my husband complained about the men's locker room being dirty, missing shower heads in many of the showers, lockers filled with trash, and clothes hooks being ripped off the walls. I did not notice any of these things in the womens gym. The dance studio floor exhibited water damage and we were told they were in the process of redoing it. I noticed young children in the pool area. Like I said if you want a family membership that will meets everyones needs then this is probably what you want. We are childless, retired, and in our early 60's so we are more interested in a 24 hour adults only facility with comfortable easy to use equipment. Anytime Fitness meets those needs better.

BEST GYM IN BAKERSFIELD!!!!!!!! I joined in-shape on white lane 9 months ago and it has been one of the best decisions i have made. i was a member at body exchange and 24 hour and neither compares to in-shape. bottom line is they have a great atmosphere, great day care, great staff, great everything. Highly recommend this gym

with the exception of the staff, the gym itself is very nice. fully equipped the the latest cardio equipment and free weights, none of which are mismatched. it's even got a second floor dedicated to females that are uncomfortable around the opposite sex below them. the interior is dim-lit which can be very distracting and frustrating. the membership fee is substantial as well. besides that, it's definitely worth checking out.

I joined the White Lane In-Shape Health Club in 2007. I enjoy the white lane health club because it is kept clean, neat and most everyone is aware of their part in keeping it clean. Great atmosphere, excellent selection of cardio and weight equipment and amazing personal trainers (I am in the best shape of my life)!

I love this health club. The staff is great and the club is beautiful. My kids love the huge kids club which makes it easier for me to get in a good workout. I really love the spinning class - it is a really fun way to lose weight.

Wow! what a gym. When you walk in, you don't hear the "clanging" of weights, the "grunting" of the meat heads, or loud annoying music. It has a sense of class with a lobby/lounge area that greets you, and with the attention to detail inside the gym. There is a room for everything in there: Cardio; weight machines, an area like curves for women, aerobics, women only, bicycling, women only, pilates, and an indoor pool. I have 4 children ages 4-16, and I was a member of Total Woman, 24 Hour Fitness, and Body Xchange, and none of my kids enjoyed the day care at these places like they do at In-Shape. My 16 year-old son would love to have the basketball courts that Body Xchange has, but he gets that at school, and at the park. I totally recommend this place. It's affordable, there's no pressure to join, but you'll feel good when you do!
