I only come to this fitness center cause it's close to my home and I want to work myself back into shape. Other than that, the majority of the staff are not too friendly. You ask them questions and they will either tell you they don't know the answer to your questions or give you the run around unless you pump more money into their facility, then perhaps you may see a smile. I sense that they would rather be working somewhere else but they are there cause they have no where else to go. Unless your #1 reason for coming to this facility because the location is nearest to you home like me, I would not recommend this center to anyone until all of their staff attend a full day 'customer service' seminar to learn how to be more helpful and treat their guests with some courtesy.

DO NOT SIGN UP AT THIS GYM. YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!!!

If i could give this location zero stars, I would.

Let me tell you about my horrible experience.

I got a coupon to try the place for free and, right when I walked in, they tried to to give me a sales pitch-- from the protein drinks, to the personal trainers, to the membership. I felt as if I was at a car dealership.

After I repeatedly said no to signing up, they brought me into a room and brought over their second line of attack, some chubby Chinese guy named James C. He bragged about how he competed in shows and now he's a personal trainer at Bally's on Aborn Road. Being as fat as he is, I wonder how is he going to help me get into shape. I told him I just wanted to use the machine and that I wasn't interesting in joining. Then he started making belittling comments at me because I didn't want to join. He said I wouldn't amount to anything if I didn't sign up. Why come at all if I wasn't going to sign up? He said he wanted to help me, but when I asked him to show me how to use the equipment, he said ""I don't work for free."" He kept going on and on about me staying at home and using my bench press rather then using their equipment if I wasn't going to sign up. I knew he didn't want me there. Then he calls over another worker and tells her ""This guy doesn't want to sign up, but he wants to use our gym."" I've never felt so unwelcome anywhere in my life.

Any thought of joining this gym went straight down the drain after hearing the words out of JAMES C mouth.

This doesn't include the ridiculous fees they try to throw on you. Join another gym. It's cheaper and the customer service is a lot better.

Bally should train their workers better, rather than having them harass the customers.

I will not recommend this place to anybody!

If you see JAMES C, just say, ""C' ya later,"" or ignore the guy and don't ever sign up from him because he'll make you feel 2 feet tall if you don't want to join.

Oh, I forgot, when he realized he wasn't going to make a sales off me, he walked out the room and said, ""Have a good life."" I don't know whether to be angry or laugh. Of course it's sarcasm for ""Thanks, for wasting my time idiot."" And if you come here, and unfortunate enough to met him, this is what's in store for you too.

I rather be fat then have to deal with this type of insulting customer service!

What I like about this fitness club, besides being near my house, is its cleanness and new equipments. Their equipments are generally newer compare to other gym in the San Jose area. It also has a nice swimming pool. However, the pool can be crowded at time. Also, the whole gym is crowded at around 4pm -> 7pm.

What I don't like about it? It close at 11:00 pm weekday, and 9:00 pm weekend. That can be very inconvinient for people who work 2nd shift who want a good workout after work.

PROS: new equipments, cleanness
CONS: doesn't open late
