This is a great place in some respects - great free weight room for guys. But bathrooms, changing rooms constantly smell and are not clean, sanitized. The bathrooms also don't have fans to eliminate smells, etc. The changing rooms (at least for men) are also cramped (at Collinsville location). But it's the only place other than YMCA with a pool. Men 6 feet also have to duck underneath one of the entrances to weight room because the height is too low.

I decided to go to Leisure because I live in Collinsville, and with the rising gas prices, I thought that it might compare to the YMCA. I go there for Zumba and other workouts in the aerobic room (so I don't use the weight equipment, treadmills, etc.). With that being said, I called and the lady I spoke to was very nice and she said that I could come in and try the Zumba class out before I decided if I wanted to make the switch. I went and found there were like 6 or 7 kids in the front row to take the class, so constantly bumping into them, people just standing in the back of the class taking up space to watch, not work out. 30 minutes into the workout (this is supposed to be an hour long) the instructor asks if anyone is too hot and everyone says yes. Now mind you, this is what I am here for, a WORKOUT. Everyone is complaining of the heat, so the INSTRUCTOR cuts class 30 minutes short. I couldn't have been more mad. I can't believe the instructor would cut the class because people are complaining, that just screams LAZY to me.
I won't be going back there, I will just make the drive to the YMCA!

Have used this club for 5+ years. It is defintiely not the cleanest it could be, nor are the pool and sauna areas ventilated well. Wear shower or pool shoes! I need this place for the pool. If there were more competition in the area maybe the manager would get the owner to hire a full-time cleaning crew or get a new one if his current one isn't doing the job. Also needs to increase ventilation throughout if these simple changes aren't made this place won't stay in business long if real competition comes to town. And no, the YMCA is not competition because it caters to children, adults are last on the list.

Moldy ceilings, urine on bathroom floors, and naked men in hot tubs and sauna. These some of the more noticeable attributes. The types of members are even worse. Little kids run around the Yoga area, teenagers hang aournd the free weight area, and guys are shaving their testicals in the mens room...hard to believe! I'm not sure where the pictures where taken on their web site...Definately not in their building.

I have been a member of Leisure World for over 15 years. The club offers a full range of new free weight, nautilus, and hammer strength equipment for all fitness levels. The Cardio equipment on the main floor is top of the line, w/ personal TV. The upstairs cardio room offers enough machines so that you will never have to wait( some equipment is older). The locker rooms are Clean,Sauna is Hot, and shower is wet.

I would recomend leisure world for anybody who wants a gym with great equipment, pool, and locker room.

It is worth checking out and see if this place is right for you.

Other Notes:
-Staff is Friendly
-They have been fair with any contract issues,
-Place does not smell
-Equipment is updated often
-They offer a tanning bed, but the best tanning beds are at Tanning Centers.
-Child Care Avalible

Best health club in Collinsville for the $$. Staff is very friendly. Lots of great equipment that I never have to wait to use. Membership cost reasonably priced. Very clean facility. Recently expanded hours during the week and weekends. Won't consider going elsewhere!

Wishing now that I would of never signed a contract at this place. The women's bathroom area smells like something died in there. The manager is a jerk from hell. The staff there are NOT friendly. The tanning beds are not new; used them once for 20 minutes and there was not a noticable difference in color. (bad bulbs, maybe?). This place sucks. And my membership should of been over in March yet they are still taking the payment out of my bank account. This is getting cancelled as soon as possible and I'm going somewhere else :). Please DO NOT join here. This place is a rip off. There are better gyms available for less money :). (YMCA; Club Fitness, etc). Leisure World SUCKS :).

I would recommend you check the shower room floors very carefully (can you say "worms"?). At the very least, do not go barefoot in there. It is totally gross!

I signed up at Leisure World in July 2008. The staff is friendly and all, but the place smells terrible. I understand that it is a gym and that people sweat, but this place reeks. It smells like 20 years of sweat and mildew that hasn't been cleaned. There is plenty of equipment. I would not say that it is state of art or the newest. A lot of the cardio machines sound like they are going to break. Another thing to mention, the staff, or whoever tries to sign you up, makes the place seem like it is the best. In all honesty it is not. The sign on the front door says "new tanning beds", when in fact they are beat up looking and old. Please check into everything before signing the contract.

I have been a member of Leisure World Healt Club for 12 years. The club is always clean. The equipment is state of the art. The atmosphere is geared for all ages. I have tried other health clubs but this one is the best..

I'm currently a member but I'm trying to get out of it. I signed up almost 2 1/2 years ago. When joining the person told me that, "You can cancel anytime". Don't believe them, I have tried cancelling 3 times. Each time they tell me, "you can cancel in Feb. then it was March. The thing about it is that I have not been there in 2 years. For one my father died and I didn't feel the need to go. Second, its to far away from my home. They have been getting over $720 free money and they still don't want to cancel my membership. So, thing 4 times before you join this place.

My one-and-only visit to this business was to preview it's facilities prior to deciding on joining. As previously mentioned by another Reviewer, there wasn't enough equipment to utilize; unless you left work at 3pm to gain access to a machine before 4:30pm .. but the major issue that kept me from staying long enough to complete a good workout [or to join] was the fact that the entire workout area smelled like a locker room that hadn't been ventilated in 5-10 years.... obviously there is an issue of saving money by not running the fan [of the Central Air System], but the stench was so overwhelming that I felt my lungs were being contaminated by such a powerful odor...if there was a virus in the air, it could live forever in that place

Lesuire World is a nice place to workout, but it should be noted that true fans of exercise might have a hard time getting it done here. The very word "Leisure" is uninspiring and is a more than fitting description for this club.
