I joined this club when it was Retro. In the beginning I was impressed because they offered unlimited tanning time & they were suppose to be open 24 hrs. Well since then alot has changed my mind. I used to go alot & now i really don't like the gym anymore. It has changed from 24 hrs to opening @5 in the morning when someone gets there??& closing @11 pm. I pretty much stopped going all together because I really don't feel safe going there in the morning's when they do open the building that same person leaves right away & there is no one to watch the desk or let me tan which is what I am paying for.I feel if the money is there to pay for my membership then I should be getting what I am paying for. I am not the only one that thinks this way. I want to start going again but I don't like how things are right now & I think someone needs to address the issues. I like to set up & the machines just feeling safe & getting what I paid for needs to be addressed. thanks for listening

Changes names constantly.
Outdated machines.
4 treadmills in entire gym including 1 broken treadmill.
1 tanning bed
outdated leg machines.
no ab crunch machine
missing many other machines!
BAD INVESTMENT!

It has changed its name many times now, but the original powerhouse was a great place to workout. All of the equipment you can think of and hours accommodated everyone.

This gym is now Retro Fitness, all new equipment with LCD tv"s on all the new cardio machines. Cardio theater featuring a new movie daily, tanning, personal trainers, massage theripist and huge smoothie bar. Equipment very easy to use(being a female I appreciate this) and friendly staff. Cant beat the 10 dollar a month price!

This gym has changed names (used to be Powerhouse - now it is "Dolphin") but not owners. When I asked why, they said basically no reason - just to "Change it up a bit". They offer a huge assortment of equipment and a good amount of cardio equipment. I have never had to wait for a machine. They also offer a nice mix of classes like pilates, body sculpting - even SALSA! They are very reasonably priced and no hard sell when you go in to tour the place. There is the typical muscle guys but still female friendly. The locker room is pretty typical for a gym -- one big room to change in and for all to see! That is why I change at home first (very shy). The hours are great and parking is ample. Overall, it's a nice place and non-threatening.

PROS: Diverse services offered
CONS: Smells a little sweaty when you walk in.
