I've only spent three months in this gym, but my friends have already noticed the difference in my body form and structure. They definitely have some of the best instructors in town!

It is no wonder Cheetah Gym is slated for closing...again. Clearly the previous owners allegations may have been correct. The business struck me as mafia owned and after being a member I am convinced of that. The business suffered from

I was a Cheetah member for a year. The gym is nice and clean, but I wasn't using it as much as I had hoped. I contacted them at the end of my contract, within 30 days before the renewal (per the contract).

I love this place! The hours are great, and the people that work there challenge you to get a great workout. Its also a really good place to meet people, I have actually made a small handful of friends there, and dated a guy that I met there. The facility is clean, and the classes are the best.

David Wilshire, did a great job designing and building his health clubs. I was a member for four years when he opened his second club. I moved and chose to move back to Andersonville just for David's gym. All the community outreach programs were his idea. He started the Andersonville Halloween Parade, Compassion Action which did random acts of kindess for people in need, he also had a sliding scale which no other commercial gym in the Nation offers. I understand that he would give people time if they lost their jobs and let them use the club even for free. The fruit on the desk, the lemon ice water in the locker rooms and even the cool off towels-that's all David. I even saw him cooking every Saturday morning. Once a month they would have a member appreciation brunch-there was David cooking pancakes and omelettes for his members. Awesome Gyms! David!

The Cheetah sells overpriced gym memberships based on superficialities and status symbolism and , after one joins, continues to put on the sales pressure for additional services. The ownership/staff (not all-- but a few key individuals) is not only unhelpful, but unnecessarily confrontational and edgy.
Do yourself a favor and check out a real gym like Chicago Fitness center on Lincoln. It doesn't have the preening meat market aspect of Cheetah and it has more than enough space for the requisite equipment.

Pros: shiny machines and cold towels

Cons: staff space and attitude

Yes, it is a nice gym and definitely modern BUT, I have been to several gyms in this city and this one has many faults despite some great recommendations. The place is too overcrowded and the staff can be very rude at times. There is really no place to stretch or anything else because of the "social scene". Prices are high and I hear they are a bear about contracts. If you are a gym person and cannot be intimidated this is for you, if you are uncomfortable in crowds the stay away.

My friend goes to this gym and I was able to go to Cheetah as a Guest Pass. This place is very nice and different from your typical gym. It's inside a homelike setting and when you walk in you see a wood staircase. The cardio machines are set in a room with wood flooring. They have all types of cardio machines to tredmills, bikes and stepping machines. They also have a nice size free weight section and also have trainers on site. It's a very unique concept and outside the box of your typical gym which is nice.

I am not so sure that is a gym or a resturant. The gym has very bad air ventilation.
I can smell food while I am working out. :(

While I agree with the other reviewers that the facilities are in general quite good- over my past year as a member I have found the lack of space for stretching to be quite inconvenient. This is the one downside (well, this and Andersonville parking) from the otherwise well-equipped gym. At peak times I often end up stretching in the locker room as best I can.

From the top floor where you can watch TV and do your cardio to the bottom floor where you can look at the turtle in the waterfall, Cheetah Gym is awesome. They have great instructors and most of the classes are included in a full membership. Wonderful juice bar and often have member brunches. Great to check email before/after workout. Nice place to workout with great people

The first time I set foot in this gym, i was stunned at how gorgeous this place is. The staff are some of the friendliest people i've ever met at a gym.

There's a nice little juice bar off to the side along with an internet cafe. A lot of equipment so there's not a wait for a certain machine. I'm pretty sure they have kickboxing classes and some aerobics programs.

Seriously, setting foot in this gym will make you want to work out there and keep coming back.

I love this gym. I joined about a year ago, I now work at another gym, but still go to Cheetah on my days off. The urban feel of it is awesome, and another huge draw is having your own tv attached to the cardio equipment. I highly suggest checking out this club.

Cheetah gym in Andersonville is the best gym in the city. It's not too expensive and has all the amenities of a higher-priced place. The gym is always clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Internet cafe is a nice touch - the owner is always thinking about how to make it a better place - it shows.

The Scene
This tri-level gym creates a homey feel with its oak doors and staircase. Two three-story waterfalls empty into a carp-filled pond. Its lower-level stretching room pumps in new-age music, while the Spinning room is…
