Lifestyle is out of business. Lifetime fitness picked up only the profitable locations. Some, like the Walnut location in Cary, are closing. Others remain open, and Lifetime members are allowed to use them now at no charge.

The scam post is true. If you try to cancel your membership, Lifestyle Family Fitness in Raleigh, North Carolina will continue to bill your checking account. They will claim that you have a contract and that you must pay even though you have closed your membership. Consumers should seek other fitness centers that operate on the premise of customer satisfaction and honesty.

I will be honest. The gym itself is pretty nice. There are lots of new machines that are well kept. The gym is big. Evern when there are a ton of people in the gym, you can usually find a machine to work out. HOWEVER, the showers have been an issue for over two years now. Read the other reviews and you will see they have not fixed the issue. There are small brown flies in the shower stalls. Worse, is the pathetic shower pressure. It literally takes 25 mins to get a good shower because the pressure is so low.

If you don't need to use the shower, this might be a good choice. If you need a morning workout and a shower before you head to work, stay away.

Again, LFF knows this is an issue for over 2.5 years but they've done nothing about it.

Lifestyle has been a clean, friendly, well maintained gym - until recently. Now that LFF is offering Peak members the same deal they had at Peak - whether it was $15 or $25, the place has become overcrowded as a result. The parking lot is packed, classes are full (which is fine), there are no free machines, the sauna is jammed, there are lines 10 to 20 people deep at the front desk to check in, and there are stacks of people in the aisles of which the fire marshall might well disapprove. The existing LFF members, who pay from $33 to $39 a month and many of whom paid a joining fee of $50 to $75, have been given no information at all about the influx of new members or about plans to increase class offerings (which are nowhere near as large in # as the YMCA's class list). My friends who take water aerobics (I have not been in those classes) say that the small pool is packed and equipment is short, sometimes the equipment closet is locked. I know several LFF members who are looking for new gyms as a result. My fear is that if LFF emphasizes new members over old, and the old members who are paying the fees that support the place leave, it will go downhill fast. There has to be a balance between sales and service, and I'm not seeing that at LFF right now.

That being said, the staff is in general quite wonderful there - but corporate offices are clearly pushing the staff to increase enrollment at rapid rates. They are clearly giddy about the opportunity to grab as many Peak members as possible no matter the cost to existing members or the long term health of the club.

I imagine the same thing is happening at Golds, which the N&O indicated is also offering special deals to Peak members.

Pros: Great classes, good equipment, clean

Cons: Recently has gotten extremely crowded

Read your paperwork! These guys will steal every penny from you they can when you try to leave. They will charge you card without permission and you would not beleive how hard it is to cancel the contract. Never again!

I'm glad you're reading this - Dont waste your time or money at this place. IT's a scam all the way around - They advertised "no-contract" but now when I try to stop the monthly charge they still are charging, claiming that I signed a LEGAL DOCUMENT - How is that no - contract???

Look - they sent out some advertisements and such, but dont waste your money - and if you do WATCH YOUR CC STATEMENT - Scam type stuff...

WIth all the choices in Raleigh - GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

In 2008 I gave this gym a great review. Since then
the fulltime cleaning person has been eliminated.
The showers are extremely filthy-black mold on the
tile-flies in the shower area. I am so disappointed this gym used to be five (5) stars and the best in Raleigh.
Update: I just gave my notice to leave this gym-the
flies and mold in the mens showers finally made
me decide to move on.
