DO NOT JOIN THIS GYM. All of you who have given good reviews, you will be surprised as I was to find that they will not give you the time of day after you decide to cancel. Not only has this gym gone downhill with the one towel limit, the aging equipment, the foamy, dirty hot tub, the mean, old, nasty women who give you dirty comments when you refuse to wear the ugly swimming caps, the loud Chinese conversation in the sauna, etc., but they are habitually BREAKING THEIR CONTRACT BY NOT ALLOWING YOU TO CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP ACCORDING TO THE ORIGINAL TERMS. They will have a collections agency harass you incessantly while they ignore you. If you have experienced this like so many others, I would encourage you to report your complaint to the authorities.

I was a member for four years. I would never have known anything was wrong with the management while I was quietly using the gym and going about my business. The equipment is outdated, although they've added TV's, etc. Some of the vinyl is falling apart; I would never go in the tub again, with all those foamy bubbles and the nasty smell. That's not the problem.

I decided to cancel my membership back in March 2010. I was given the run around as they kept trying to postpone the cancel date. I was told someone would call me. No one did. Finally in April, I demanded to fill out a cancellation form. The girl tried not to give me one, but I insisted. Even after I submitted it, she told me there was no guarantee my membership would be cancelled. At this point, I was on a month to month basis. I was told someone would call, and no one did.

I followed up in May and was assured everything was fine. The girl was completely clueless. She kept telling me the cancellation was done. She said my fees were paid up, because I paid the last month in advance when I first signed up with the gym. She kept referring to the last month as "free," which was annoying. I saw a sheet of paper that said they were going to charge me for May and give me June as my last month. I kept pointing this out, but the girl admitted she could not understand what I was talking about, that she was the one who wrote this paper and the cancellation was ending in June as I had requested. Again, I gave her my number and wrote a note to request a call from someone who had more authority. No one called.

Did you know that your membership fee processing is handled by a professional collections agency? Well, they have tacked on additional fees already and they are harrassing me several times a week at work. I keep telling them that this is a mistake. I wrote to the gym, but nobody responded. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau only to find that they have other complaints that went unanswered. Their rating is a C-, which is higher than they deserve for their business practices.

Do not use a credit card to pay this place. They will keep charging you after you cancel and you will never get it back. Is your maximum of one shabby, possibly germ infested towel worth the high membership fee? You might think so now, but just wait and see.

Pros: Empty usually

Cons: Bad business practices

If you are looking for a non-judgmental, safe environment to real your fitness goals, this is the place. Very clean environment, well-maintained equipment, friendly staff who KNOW you (since you are not the 200th person who walked through the doors that day), then this is the place.

A bit more pricey than the huge chain clubs, but worth it for the cozier, less intimidating environment of mature females.

Firstly before I go on, let me address the negative review. Reader, does the name not say it all? :o)

I have been a member of gyms in several places in the world, and all I can say is .. this is the only one I look forward to going to each day. The staff are great and helpful, the members friendly and the place ... well .. not intimidating.

This gem in San Marino, has most of what big gyms have and yet manages to maintain an almost big family feel to it, but its not like a claustrophobic closeness either. There is none of the scrutiny and self consciousness one often feel in other gyms.

The trainers are well-trained, knowledgeable and supportive.

Equipment - well maintained, and there are enough so one never has to stand around waiting.

The place is clean and parking is ample.

As I said, a real neat place.

The previous comments are outrageous lies. I have been a member @ the club since 2001 and have never experienced any of the negativity described below.

I've also belonged to many gyms for over 20 yrs this will be my last one. It's the best ever.

Great gym if you don't want to worry about the "competition" feeling at gyms. Small but clean, traditional yoga classes, package deals. Great parking.

Women's World is a great gym. The woman who wrote the negative slur against the gym should be ashamed. Because its a shame to write such untruths about WW gym and their instructors. What ever problem you have with an instructor and her son, it's not a gym issue because I'm sure this did not happen at WW since it's an all female facility. And as far as the instructors and trainers, they are top notch with national certifications. And it's mandated by the owner that all instructor and trainers stay on top of their certs.

I hated the meat market those co-ed facilities offered; this is a great alternative. No lines, great staff, everyone knows my name. I'm not just a number. and they create progams that help motivate me!! All the trainers have the education and experience to help anyone. They sure helped me reach my goals.

You must check it out.....greal classes too. AND VERY CLEAN

Not just a gym...I have to say, I was hesitant to go to an all womens gym, but after going to Womens World, I will never go to another co-ed facility again. No worries about any lookey loos...
