Here goes,,my first review

I have rejoined this club a few times now due to frequent long term assignments with work. Every time I rejoin do I almost balk at the price, it's about $150 per month. But it never takes more than a few days to be reassured that it is well worth the money.

There are over 100 classes a week that are included with the membership. Definitely try one of Neil's Definitions classes.

There are 100s of pieces of cardio equipment. I have never had to wait for a machine or get off of one early because somebody else was waiting.

The club itself is beautiful and spacious. The locker rooms are stocked with everything I need. I never feel hurried getting in or out of the place because everything is laid out so well.

Highly recommended.

This could really be an amazing gym if they would just keep the locker room clean! I have seen this place delcine dramatically over the past two years. I recently canceled my membership due to problems with management - overcharging my credit card etc. The staff and management are VERY nasty to deal with! In addition, they are slow to preform repairs - steam room was broken for weeks before they finally repaired it. Back to the clean issue - the showers are usually very dirty with visible mold. The steam room is rarely clean - insteading of cleaning it out they mask the smell with scented oils - really quite disqusting!! Again, this could be a fabulous place if they would train the staff on customer service and pay more attention to details - and maybe invest in some cleaning supplies!

I am a current member of the Sports Club/La. As other reviews point out, a membership is not cheap. With that said, if you can afford it it is definitely worth it. The gym is huge so you don't have to fight for equipment, and the personal training staff is top notch (if you join make sure to use your 2 complementary training sessions). The basketball court, 4 squash courts and lap pool are also a nice place to get in some cardio if you prefer not to use a machine. Finally the food in the cafe is excellent!Overall I would highly recommend this health club!

I am member here and it is terribly expensive and frankly, fairly dirty. The staff is very unfriendly and I would never join this place. There are much better gyms in DC than this one. Stay away!

I was a member for three years and quit after a bunch of price hikes for renovations that took well over a year to complete, limited parking options, loss of the best class instructors, and frankly - very poor customer service.
After trying to end my membership, they continued to charge me for months worth of bills. Almost a year later, I still occassionally find that they've incorrectly started charging my credit card again - and I still haven't received the promised refunds.
I loved their classes - but the hassle of their parking system and their poor management means I will not be going back.
I'd check out Results - nicer people, good classes, and it's a lot cheaper.

The membership management is horrible. I enrolled as a member in November/December 2006. I cancelled my membership in October 2007, however they are still charging my credit card. I have made several complaints but they still refuse to stop.

To all those out there - Be careful

I've been a member of this club for three years, and have seen the quality of the services decline. Many of the new aerobic machines are failing, which is something the management appears to not know or care about. This club has just announced a 20% dues increase which has caused over 110 members to leave. There are several other new clubs in the area that are less expensive and run with good managements. Not recommended.

This is a full frills gym that is worth it if you can afford it in your budget. It is very expensive, possibly the most expensive in the Washington DC area. I've only been there as a guest, but think it's great! The layout of the gym is nice - with the cardio equipment surrounding the basketball court which is really fun when the stars are on the court (including George Clooney!) The classes can get very crowded and could get even more crowded as they continue to do full out membership drives. They do offer a nice range with some of the top trainers in the city.

This is a good club, but it is expensive. The lap pool is terrific, as are the sports facilities in general. If you play racquetball, the courts are outstanding. Excellent steam and saunas as well. Restaurant is not quite what it should be and the spa store is overpriced. Still, it's very attractive and well located.

PROS: Very handsome place, great pool, modern equipment
CONS: Closes too early---11:00 PM doesn't work for everyone

This massgae was nice, but the therapist was 20 minutes late and not very apologetic. The waiting area is also ok, but you have to change in the locker room with the people using the gym, which does not add much to relaxation.
