The fitness center itself isn't awful, they are constantly changing things and moving things around which is a little annoying, the staff there can be really rude at times and can make you feel a little uncomfortable, but good luck canceling your membership. It's a complete pain and you'll have to pay to cancel, because for some reason when you place a request to cancel the membership, they only pend it, for 30 days, then they put in the actual request to cancel the membership after you've paid. Total scam to get more money out of members, oh and if you can't afford to have it taken from the auto draft... then they will charge you your monthly plus a fee to cancel your membership... kind of. It's a rip off and it's sad.

As a former employee of Family Health and Fitness, I have to agree with the majority of the reviews; especially those about pricing. The salesmen that were there when I worked there 10 years ago were dishonest. Sometimes the rates depended on how "hot" a woman was. I did, however, enjoy the classes.

I was told to speak to Violeta in the Business Department, regarding my account. She was very condesending to me, and rude. I will never do business with that gym again..

I am a member who is counting the days until I can kiss this dump goodbye. Yes you never have to wait. That is because most sane folks are leaving for other cleaner gyms, with helpful staff. The classes at Family Fitness are horrible, and unreliable. 2 more months and I am done. May even through a party!

I have been a member twice now and what keeps me coming back is the POOL and the great staff. All of the other gyms do not have pools even though they promised one to entice people to join up and alas.....they still don't have pools. Right ON for Family Health and Fitness.

Pros: The pool,, the group classes, the sauna, the steamrooms, the showers, the price.

Cons: The parking can be tedious especially at night

I have to wonder if the unsatisfied reviewers are reviewing the right gym. I joined about 6 mo ago. They did not try to sell me on the membership and they handed me a clear pricing sheet. The rates are low and the facility is expansive and you never have to wait for anything. They have great equipment, basketball court, pool, and plenty of heavy things to push. They open at 4:30 every morning so you can get an early start on the day.

There has been a noticeable decline in the moral of gym members. Management is rude. To be frank, I am surprised that there have not been a number of complaints to owners. I wonder why people are still here. I know I won't be once my membership is up. What a sad legacy.

Went in yesterday 09-03-08 to add another person on to my account and spoke to manager. She was very rude and seemed like she didnt want to even deal with us. I have been a member for over 4 years and thats how they treat me! Bad move by gym owners by hiring her knowing they are not the only gym in santa maria anymore with the same old not updated equipment they have had since I joined 4 years ago. Golds gym and club 24 are the newest gyms in town and by far better in customer service and newest equipment. I am going to take my money elsewhere and I will adivese everyone I know to do the same. They should be trying to keep their customers not run them out of there! VERY BAD!!

If you are looking for a huge facility with lots of equipment and even a separate workout room for women, then this is the place. The equipment and indoor swimming pool are definitely high quality. However, there are a couple of drawbacks. One of the drawbacks is that they are a little bit secretive about their pricing. When I went in to join, they made me make an appointment to talk to a salesperson (who was also late for the appointment). I asked for a price list and they said that one does not exist. Basically, it was like going in and talking to a car salesman - they just wanted to negotiate. Also, they do not allow you to go month to month, you have to make at least a 6 month commitment.

Family Health & Fitness is by far the best gym in town. They have an indoor heated pool and a ton of weight and exercise machines. They offer a juice bar, childcare and tanning. One of my favorite features is that they have a room that is for women only so that you don't have to feel self-conscious exercising in front of the men.
My only complaint is regarding their contract/pricing. In my opinion, it is pretty shady. They will not let you go month to month and when you ask about rates, they just pull numbers out of thin air. They do not have any advertised prices or prices in print and it just depends on who you are and who you talk to as to what price you are given. You also have to schedule an "appointment" to talk to someone about joining and talk pricing, you can't just talk to the person at the front.
