I liked the place. I had a great workout - the equipment was fine. TVs did not seem to have a problem. I am going to join - good location and easy for me to exercise here.

I only attend the aerobic classes. At times the spin classes on weekends are hit or miss meaning the weekend instructor changes frequently. The only class that consistently provides a great cardio (and FUN) workout is Peter's dance class. I make it a point to attend this class weekly. The other instructor that I would recommend is Wesley. He has a great step and resistance training class. Also I must mention that the weekend yoga class is good but needs to start on time.... :(

As far as the gym it is very dated (or old) and could use a renovation. The equipment is adequate but at times I feel that it is not kept or cleaned. The staff seem to be preoccupied and management is disengaged. I did take advantage of the free training session and was impressed. But not enough to contract their services.

Half of the TVs upstairs have been malfunctioning for 3 years. They are obviously set on a timer for the weekend hours. During daylight saving time, the TVs come on at 10 am. During standard time they come on at 9 am. Since I go early during the week, those TVs are never on.

I wrote complaint to corporate a couple of years ago. They had someone from my original club in Ohio call me. All they did ask ME who was in charge in Smyrna. And they tried calling the club. Obviously no one is in charge corporately and there is no corporate customer service.

Pros: convenient to where I live and I have a cheap membership

Cons: Have TVs that have not worked for 3 years

It was Bally Fitness that was one of the forerunners in the health club movements across the U.S. There were times when they had such a hold on the market that you could spend a small fortune in fees. But they were also smart enough to change with the times and come in line with their fees to be competitive with the smaller guys. This facility is well location so it is easy to get in and out of before or after work. There really isn't any waiting time for the machines. There are lots of classes and plenty of assistance to help you get into the shape of your desire.

I pretty much agree with Michael. He summed it up well. I worked out at Bally's off and on alternating between there and Crunch Fitness, up the street, for the past 10 years. Bally's on Cobb Parkway has nice guys who work there and are generally pleasant but the ladies stare at other ladies like they have attitudes and rarely speak. There is a big woman who works in the store up front where the extras are sold, who has zero personality and is one of the least friendly people I have ever met. She sometimes has her hindquarters half on and half off a stool. She is in a position where personality is and hospitality is expected. That fitness center needs to reevaluate their facility and workers. The weights down stairs is in a a very closed and umcomfortable place for anyone to work out. Its cramped dismal and the men stare at your every move.

I have now added La Fitness to my list of fitness centers. Crunch which was the old Sports Life was an old favorite. Every since they moved from the Windy Hill Location its been down hill. Sports Life housed a basketball court(Hawks practiced there), swimming pools, large work out area, raquet ball courts and is where I had my most physical progress. They closed that location and everyone flocked to Cobb Parkway and it became Crunch shortly thereafter. This location is very dismal and drab and always seemed dirty. However, it does hold average fitness amenities except theres no basketball court now. Not sure what the benefit of that was.

I now have been forced to join LA Fitness to get an open, clean and well accomodated facility. This location on Cobb Parkway is a great workout facility it has raquet ball courts, basketball court, swimming pool, many cardio machines, and everything else you would need. The only draw back in this facility, is being a woman, men tend to be inconsiderate of others. And let me say this is true for all gyms I have frequented. Men will leave weights on benches of 45 pounds or more. How likely is a woman to enter a gym and bench press the bar of 45 pounds and then add 2 seperate 45 pound weights to that? VERY UNLIKELY, so therefore, we find ourselves constantly removing these weights we dont intend to use in order to get our workout on. The employees should be required to walk these facilities when they are just sitting around shooting the breeze and remove weights and straighten up. Their goals should be to mingle and give helpful hints while all the while tidying up and removing unused weights.

No matter what they say is the best deal tell them you cant afford it and the price will magically get better and better. I have friends that work out for 9 dollars/month at Ballys some even less. So, keep this in mind when you are discussing prices.

Pros: Pool, lots of equiptment

Cons: Front desk personel are not kind in the lest.

The gym is great if you plan on having a trainer (I was quoted about $400/month.) While hired, they seem extremely pleasant and helpful, and truly care about helping you. Otherwise the staff ignores you unless they are just staring for some personal reason. The staff seems to be more preoccupied with their outside or social life at the gym. There is one lady (larger African-American woman) who is extremely nice who works at the front desk sometimes.I have not participated in any classes, but they seem okay, though the times/classes are not advertised very well. It is pretty clean, mainly during the first 1/2 of the day. As for pricing I pay about $33 a month and in a contract, which I can break if I move (which is great), but found out this is currently on my credit report (not great).The main exercise areas are full of all times of people (young, old, different races, thin, large, etc) so I feel extremely comfortable working out there. The customers seem to be at east and comfortable too, happy to be there, excited to be working out to improve themselves. However, in the free weight section at the bottom floor, there is too much attitude and rudeness. If you don't look like you are going to bench 1,000 lbs, you may get some stares. I was called a name once just walking near the area. It is very immature and there's always a few guys always trying to be the alpha male. Between about 5pm - 7pm there are a lot of people there, but only the free weight area seems to have an impact as groups of guy will hog a machine for a very long time, but the main exercise area has plenty of machines that are free.No one swims. They might as well put fish in the pool. I may start to swim since it is always free. I don't have children, but there always seems to be someone attending and watching them, even though they are sitting down most of the time. I was given one free training session, and the trainer was extremely knowledgeable and answered a lot of my questions. I was clearly not interested in hiring a trainer, but he still took the time to explain the process and rate, even though he was behind his schedule. There's no free towel service, but they do sell you pretty much everything you need. I bought a small towel for less than $2.00 The cardio machines at clean and plenty of them to go around.I go to another Bally's near my work to use the free-weight area. It's not as big, doesn't have as many machines, but I feel more comfortable there. I basically only go to the Cobb location for cardio, on weekends/early mornings. For those concerned with singlin' and minglin' this location has 1 or 2 attractive staff members (male & female) but the customers are average but mostly friendly.
