Horrible, horrible, horrible. My fiance and I have been members here for over 2 years and just recently a new masseuse was hired, and obviously is there for more than just a massage.my fiance has told me she has offered other services to him and some other men here, and I think this is ridiculous! For such a wonderful company to lower there standards and hire a low life like this little teeny bopper. We are no longer members of Compass, and I think all you woman out there should think about it too.

wow what a bunch of wimps writing their reviews, you dont know what a hard core gym is like! I think compass is an excellent facillity! They have much more than the average health club and all the equipment works fiine. they have a great cardio section and free weights section. Who cares if the weights arent that perfectly organized, Organicze them if that ticks you off. who cares that they dont have little sanitary wipes everywehre? No gym i ever worked out in has those redicuolus wipes! Most people writing in this review section use gyms to meet people and they go all dressed up with thei make up on and trying to get a date. Go to the gym to workout to loose that fat and then you will have an easier time at meeting people and you will have self confidence. Quit bad mouthing the place and do someting productive. Geeezzzz.

Do not bother, gym has very unorganized management,tanning beds do not pass inspection, tanning bed #2 has been broke since June 2010.Floor is dirty all the time,and weights are unorganized.Spa's do not pass inspection ethier.Pool is takin care of by a person with no ceritifcate in pool care which is a must by the city of Ocala.Big excerise rooms are always dirty and messy.For $400 a year you can join"Too Your Health Spa" for three years.If you work out at Compass Health And Fitness,the next time you are on a tread mill their take a minute to look under it.

Poor management. Dirty dirty dirty. The women's bathrooms are disgusting. Showers clogged with hair for days, toilets left with stains in and around them. Lights out every where. It's just a hot mess. Unfortunately its the only big gym around, so what's a girl to do. But I gotta say, when I bought a friend with me she was like what happened to this place. From when she visited last year it had gone down hill fast. And with a manager that tried his best to get things done with his hands tied to no manager at all now, we all might as well look around and settle somewhere else. The new staff that's been hired are so unprofessional and obnoxious. I used to enjoy myself but its such a disappointment. I don't care how cheap the prices are, we should still have certain standards met and kept. Until then, ill keep hounding La Fitness to get over to Ocala.

Jan. 2011 ~ Compass is an outstanding gym and all the staff are very helpful and friendly! Joe Mantia has turned the place around and it's his expertise and knowledge that has made Compass into a 5 star gym!!! It's in a great location, offers state of the art equipment, lockers, sauna, whirlpool, classes galore that are suitable for any and all, with excellent child care!! They have top notch tanning beds and now have a cafe bar with the most awesome menu!! If you haven't tried this gym lately, you are missing out!! FIVE STARS!!

This gym is not what it used to be yrs ago. The management is terrible, the book keeping people are very unorganized. I guess they have new owners and stuff is getting lost. They charged my bank account more then they should have, this has happened twice and I am finally going to close my account. Also, they're phones have "not been working for 2 weeks now" haha can't get a hold of anyone so every time I have to talk to someone I have to go in person....forget that. IM DONE

Ocala, FL Fitness - Ocala, FL Health Clubs & Gyms 07/09/10: 'Wouldn't Try This Gym based on the treatment.'

Wow... I can't believe how rude those people at Compass Health & Fitness were. Totally unprofessional and unfriendly. I have been a member of Gainesville Health and Fitness Center for about 10 years however I work in Gville and live in Ocala. I inquired about their $1 for the first month promotion. I was first told that I could have to sign up for a year membership and cancel with no fee. Than I remarked that I am currently paying for my membership in Gville and if I did not find Compass comparable to GHFC could I cancel. Well I was rudely greeted with - "We're not going to let you get $1 for the first month and let you cancel." They were already assuming the worse versus trying to win me over to their gym.

I wish they would learn some class and professionalism from GHFC. GHFC allowed me to work out for a month and than won me over. They never treated me so unprofessionally like Compass.

I was highly offended and I guess...the staff's attitude is probably a hint of how the overall staff really are. No thanks. I'll keep my business with GHFC since they know how to treat their customers right or even try Too Your Health Spa.

Is this how you earn new customers?

Not what it used to be. As you might know the former owner of Taylor, Bean, and Whitaker Mortgage owns Compass Gym. When TBW was raided by the feds (fall 2009), and subsequently went bankrupt, Compass has been in a downward spiral ever since, because money is no longer funneled to it as a writeoff. It is still the cleanest and nicest facility around. I've never had a problem with the friendliness of the desk staff, but have had a few problems with money being withdrawn twice in a month to pay for one membership. A few things that irk me (some are done to now cut costs): (1) half the lights are used now, making it very dark. (2) Unless you are there at peak times, only half of the many flat screen TVs are on in the weight area (3) It is nice that towels are provided when available, but they are no longer available as often as they were before. (4) Sanitary wipes are 50/50 as to whether they are available (5) No more floor attendant to spot people, rack weights when they were left out, etc (5) A mirror has been left broken for the past 4 months (6) Equipment is not maintained like it used to be (cables are tearing, etc) (7) Smoothie Bar, while good, is greatly overpriced (8) Trainers act like they own the gym, shouting, yelling, etc, which can be intimidating to some (9) Free days, $1 first month, free month marketing, etc, is a disservice to longtime members, as you get gawking, loud, and obnoxious members for a few days at a time (10) Rock wall was removed to put in a light wall that is never on, and never used (11) Treadmills go unrepaired for weeks at a time (12) Lockeroom is decorated hideously.

Besides these few things that have changed over the past year, overall I still go there because it remains the nicest facility in town. I'd still recommend it, but it is certainly not what it used to be.

I have been a member at Compass for some time now and had no problems until they started drafting my checking account for training sessions that were not due/supplied. When I asked to be refunded they stated they could only refund if I had used my credit card to pay for these services. Which is funny because I asked them to charge training sessions that I did use to my credit card not my checking account. They continue to refuse to reimburse me for training I have not used and will not use since I no longer have a membership there. I find this very unethical and it's basically stealing my money for services not provided. Mind you, I signed nothing that said I would not be reimbursed for unused training.

I have had a wonderful experience working out in this facility! I don't understand why there are negative ratings because I am greeted every time I enter Compass Health & Fitness. Not only is the facility fantastically clean but the staff is amazing, And with the ability to go to any of the 3 great facilities located all over ocala who wouldn't want to join! Ginney Rosensweig, Cassi schouster, Haggai Seda, & Joshua Yailaian have ensured that the facility is always running smoothly. Thanks Also to Sara Smith & Brandon Ginn, Lacee Sanchez & Leah Brabant for Excellent Customer service!

Facility is decent, but faculty is a huge frustration. While there are always employees manning the front counter, they rarely ever greet you with a hello or goodbye. It is really amazing when the manager or president are within the facility and demonstrate the same tactics. While the idea is great in the fact that this area needs a high end and cleaner health spa, the employees and management have really helped to drive people away...both customers and employees.

It is obvious that this club is neither owned nor managed by health professionals. Rather than spend money on programs that insure and maintain instructor certification money is spent on videos displaying instructors in provocative poses. Although classes are titled "spinning" implying that instructors are certified in and follow mad dog athletic spinning techniques, instructors are neither certified in this technique nor do they follow proper "spinning" instruction. The spinning bikes are not maintained and in poor condition. The club does not offer any qualified nutritional counseling nor do they ever provide seminars to help members achieve health and fitness goals. I have never been in an athletic club that did not display the credentials and sp ecialties of their trainers and instructors but in this club those credentials are highly questionable. This is an expensive club that offers little in return for the expense at least in aiding one achieve health and fitness goals.

For the well heeled this is definitely a treat. All the luxuries, all the pampering. Along with all the workout equipment there are services such as massage and facial. Tanning onsite and of course the smoothie bar! Personal services are available if desired and the setting is great. Located in the absolute heart of town, it is in the same plaza as the polic dept HQ! So you work out AND feel safe!
