We just had our son's birthday party here and it was a great experience. We had originally booked somewhere else and that place cancelled at the last minute putting us in a tight spot. I called and talked to Devon who explained the party

I love this gym and so does my child. This is one place we both enjoy going. My favorite areas of the gym besides the kid's area is the cycle room & GameReady. Mike B is an awesome personal trainer and the rest of the staff is nothing but

I plan on NEVER stepping foot into this fitness center again! I made the mistake of signing a three year contract with them and realized too late how old and crappy their equipment is compared to other gyms. The treadmills were in horrible

As the manager, I want to reflect on a few of the previous reviews on here.

Workoutpeople2- we have a relocation cancellation policy that you would have qualified for with such a far move. I would have been happy to save you some money if you would have given me an opportunity to do so. As far as managers being available, we were helping with another member with charity fundraiser when your wife came in. I am always happy to meet with members to try and help but like anyone else in the professional world it is always a good idea to call ahead if you want to set an appointment. We are closed on Sunday since it is the day of rest. We reward our hard working staff with a day off and encourage them to attend church and spend time with their families. This is why we let everyone know up front that we are not open on Sundays. We offer over 50 free fitness classes. When a class no longer has people attending then we put a different class in that slot so that people do not get bored doing the same old things. This is why we constantly update our class schedule online and at our front desk.

Neal O.- I remember meeting with your wife. I was up front in giving her different pricing options for singles and families. As I recall she was trying to purchase a membership for her and her sister's family. Our rates are a great deal when you consider that we have over 85,000 square feet packed with the latest and greatest in fitness as well as fully staffed child areas. If you do not care about your children having fun and being cared for, then I suggest other smaller gyms that only have weights and treadmills.

The basic facts- Family Fun & Fitness has been around since 1994. We are the largest health club in Hancock County. We have everything from a bowling alley and rock climbing to virtual reality fitness and over 50 free fitness classes. For as little as $10 more per month you can have access to more that a small cracker box gym that has 5,000 sq feet of weights and cardio only. We have more than 4,000 satisfied members so it is a shame to see that the minority are the only ones complaining in a public forum. Visit our official Facebook Page or see our reviews on a bigger search engine like Google.

I recommend everyone come out and check things out. If you would like a free pass to be my guest, give me a call 317-894-8888 or email me (devonb@familyfunfit.com) and I would be happy for you try us out.

We have to agree with some of the bad reviews for FFF. We moved an hour away half way into our one year contract. We knew there was no way out of our contract so we decided to cancel it once the year was out. We were on vacation during the 1st day we could cancel so we called and we 'were okay, no problem' to come in when we returned. Well my wife went in on the 7th (yes 7 days late!) and "assumed" (I know, never 'assume') that they would just prorate the 7 days we were late (We knew they required a 30 day cancellation notice). The girl at the desk had to call a manager and ask if she could cancel a membership. There were NO Managers in the building at the time. None! When my wife asked about prorating the 7 days, the girl said, ??No, we cannot do that (again, probably in small print in the contract), ??but if you want to wait for a manager to come back, you can talk to one.? No thanks! Her comment to my wife "But you can still use the membership for the rest of the month!"

What do you NOT understand about moving an hour away??!! So we got stuck with another month of non-usage. Again, READ THE CONTRACT CAREFULLY!

ALSO, one of the main reasons we joined was because my wife wanted to take water aerobics frequently and they have an entire page of all kinds of activities. Water aerobics is listed on the activities page as being twice a day, once in the am and once in the pm, Monday-Friday. We worked out a few days a week after work and NEVER saw anyone in the pool. My wife finally went up to the desk to ask about the water aerobics and was told by another girl, "Oh, I don't think I've seen anyone ever take the class." What? Kidding right?! Nope, no water aerobics!

So READ THE CONTRACT very carefully, really check out the place, and HAVE A LIST OF QUESTIONS! In fact, 'visit' quite a few times - different times and days - to see what kind of activities are for REAL before signing up with them.

We must add that the staff is very nice and friendly and Trainer Mike is wonderful! Very helpful and knowledgeable! Thank you Mike! We will miss your smile and laughs we had!

As someone else posted, they are closed on Sundays and we knew that going in. HOWEVER, isn't Sunday a day when people WANT TO WORK OUT, especially when the work week is Monday-Friday??? It's not like they don't have enough staff to be open 7 days per week, especially a Sunday!

And the place still needs a lot of work but we hope it gets better for others!

This place is money hungry!! BEWARE!!! If you have a family and are on a budget this is not the place for you. I have read reviews written by the staff... They should be embarrassed and ashamed for mis-informing clients.

So this place is a bit further of a drive than what I am use to, but the club quickly makes up for it. Not only is this place HUGE (even though it doesn't look like much on the outside) it is packed full of equipment. They have the most

As an avid runner, treadmills are vital in my workout when its cold and rainy. Family fun and fitness has 4 Freemotion treadmills. These are top notch and go a long way in saving my knees and back when I run since they have a suspension platform.

Family fun and fitness also has an incredible machine called the JACOB'S LADDER!! That thing is brutal, but in a good way. I am a mini-marathon distance runner and that thing kicked my butt after 12 mins.

They have lots of stuff there, kind of wish I would have been a memebr when the kids were younger (all college now) since they have so much stuff. Live and learn.

Really surprised to see the positive reviews. Devon, Martha, Anna and Nicki are FFF employees reviewing their employer, how odd.
The facts:
New management is an improvement, previous management just couldn't get much worse. Very small improvements since new management took over. Painted some walls, cleaned up the pool so you can now see the bottom and put new belts on 4 treadmills, the only treadmills in the place that are not worn out JUNK.
Previous management made poor decisions and spent over $300,000 for some new equipments. BUT, in order for long-term members to use that equipment, they had to pay to get in the "gym within the gym," all the while, the other equipment was not upgraded nor maintained. A previous reviewer was so happy that mgmt replaced 4 treadmill belts and bought some new pins. How low can expectations get.
In all fairness, Kathy and Mike are excellent trainers and the spinroom is equiped with top-quality spin bikes.
Management is unwilling to spend the money necessary to bring the gym up to reasonable standards because previous mgmt wasted all the money building the new gym within a gym. All cardio equipment is old, hotel workout room quality and worn out. Sometimes it sets inoperable for 6 months.
I have been a member for several years, but I will be moving on, the future does not look good for FFF.
Another problem is the gym is closed on Sunday, but the rates do not reflect a 6-day operation.
Before signing any documents at this place I recommend talking with current members. There is a lot of talk about the poorly maintained equipment that has not been upgraded for several years and the new "gym within a gym" is really a sore subject.

During a wellness screening program at work three years ago, the reality of being overweight hit hard when I registered 45% body fat via the electrode method. My youngest daughter Jennifer talked me in to joining Family Fun and Fitness (FFF). A plan was developed during my initial free visit with trainer Mike Bellinger which also involved small incremental changes to my diet and lifestyle.
Three years later I?ve lost 65 pounds and Mike Bellinger measured my body fat at 23%. I still have some progress to achieve my initial goal of 18%.
One of the keys of my success has been the very positive attitude and enthusiasm provided by FFF trainer Mike Bellinger. Over the years, we?ve developed efficient methods to get the most out of my time spent in the gym. His philosophy of ?keep moving with or without the ball? has kept me focused on various activities outside of the gym.
?Under New Management?
Last October, I noticed the owner of FFF speaking with various members on a regular basis in the evenings. My prediction was some kind of change was in the wind?.. A few months ago there has been a staffing change and overall change in customer service and community involvement. The first change I noticed was the exercise swimming pool had clear blue water instead of a green hazy color. Other improvements were made that are too numerous to mention for this review. However, it is important to mention some equipment improvements which have been made:
?Four of the treadmills have had the decks replaced. The deck is the solid surface below the revolving belt. Many gyms try to temporarily fix the permanent problem of a slipping belt with the temporary fix of tightening or replacing the belt. The right way to fix it is to replace the deck so the belt won?t slip.
?Seven weight machines in the Circuit #2 area had missing pins for the weight stack which is a common problem in many gyms. The pins were not only replaced, but the pins had flexible cords to prevent the pins from being misplaced.
I?ve also noticed the return of a large number of families in the gym. Many make their visit a true family experience and either play basketball as a team, play catch or other activities.
Some minor improvements that have been made including placing a remote control along with a steel cable with each TV so the channel or volume can be changed without climbing on the treadmills to make the adjustments.

I am so glad to be apart of Family Fun and Fitness's new and improved management team! We are here to serve you, and to make your experience at our facility the best that it can be!!! Besides the almost 60 free group fitness classes, and state of the art equipment, we also offer small group and one on one personal training.

We are having a Grand Re-Opening the week of September 13-18th and I invite you to check us out, whether you will be new, or have tried in the past! Give us a chance!!! It is so worth it!!!

I have been a member since January 2010. There have been a lot of positive changes this year that make this facility the best place to have family fun and get fit all at the same time. I definitely recommend it!

There are two kid areas...one for ages 5 and under, and the other for ages 6 to 12. Both areas are staffed with people to care for your child while you do other things. My kids like the rock-climbing wall, the blow-up-bouncy thing, and all the other fun stuff too.

I like the indoor tennis court, the basketball courts (there are 4 to choose from), the bowling alleys, the GameReady area, racquet ball courts, and I kind of like some stuff in the kids area too :-)

There is also a special room for having birthday parties and they will help you out with that as well.

And, they have a great concession area, so you can come in the morning and stay all day without getting hungry!

I have been at the gym for almost a year now and I think it is awesome. It is centrally located between several smaller towns in the county. I think it is very diversified in it's membership. You will find people of any size, shape or age who are either trying to stay fit, healthy or mobile. The members are so friendly. It has that small town feel which I think is a plus. It has the inventory of machines like any of the other name brand gyms without the expectations to have to wear name brand workout clothes. The facility is going through some much needed updates that are making it look nicer and cleaner. Give it a try. See you there.

I gave FFF a 5 star rating based on what is important to me in a workout facility. FFF earns this rating based on the variety of offerings.....variety of equipment, activities, classes, and trainers. The building itself may not be upscale, but it is the people that make it a great experience for all ages and levels of fitness. Come check us out during Open House week Monday thru Saturday, Sept 13-18!

Most in the reviews in the past have been negatively skewed against the old management. I challenge all of you to come out and see the NEW Family Fun & Fitness. The facility is under new management and has been working hard to fix problems from the past.

Many people don't realize how big and how much stuff is inside. There is more than 85,000 square feet of fitness and fun for the whole family. From an indoor tennis court, 4 basketball courts, a pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, climbing wall, and boxing studio to the latest and greatest in fitness technology all under one roof.

Everyone from the avid power lifter to families looking for something to entertain on a budget, Family Fun & Fitness is for you.

So help us turnover a new page and give us a second look. We look forward to showing you why we are considered one of Greenfield's best kept secrets.

Pros: Equipment, Staff, Availability, Family Focused, Hours, Cost

Family Fun is located just 5 miles from my house. It made for a great place to bike to and then workout. Even though I planned on signing up when I walked in, a pushy salesman really turned me off. I finally agreed to a contract but didn't realize it was 3 YEARS!!! As it most often does, my life situation changed and my family was required to move. The relocation was 1 hr away. When I went to cancel my membership, I was informed that it wasn't out of their reach radius so it could only be canceled if I paid 25% of the remainder. The reason we moved was financial so I didn't have the money and couldn't afford to drive an hour both ways just to workout.

They have a lot of attractions for the whole family. Indoor tennis, multiples basketball courts, a pool (we never used it though because it is only an aerobic pool. However, the place is really dirty and dingy. The showers are awful. Don't expect to workout in the morning and get cleaned up there before work :( The bowling alley doesn't even work. There are several leaks in the roof when it rains and I rarely saw a bucket out to catch the water.

I would still workout there if I hadn't moved, but I wouldn't give it a strong recommendation to anyone that has other fitness options.

Cons: Dirty, Long contracts, hidden clauses, manager is abrasive

My family has been members at FF&F since it opened. Once I grew up and got married, my husband and I decided to join as well. We were sold an incredibly over-priced membership by a pushy sales guy who it turns out isn't even a permanent employee of FF&F and didn't even know the policy for child care (he told us it was free, then later charged us!). Since then we've been very disappointed in the upkeep of the facilities. There's a leak in the women's locker room, the lights in the pool room have something (we thought mold, FF&F said rust) growing in them, the hot tub is frequently not working and the pool itself is too chilly for an indoor pool. The childcare leaves much to be lacking. My daughter was nervous to go in there at first (9 months old) so I sat in there several times to get her adjusted. On 2 occasions to managed to find old food (once a poptart, once a cracker) inside some of the toys and play equipment. Gross!
Because our daughter still refuses to go int he daycare at FF&F, we looked into other gyms. We found one that is clean, well-maintained, has great hours AND my daughter loves the child care. Unfortunately we're still under contract with FF&F and they refuse to work with us in any way. They won't even refund us for the personal trainer sessions we paid for in advance (but never used) and the GM, Jeff Frey, was extremely rude to my husband over the phone. I would never have thought that a 'hometown' kind of fitness facility like FF&F would have such poor customer service, but apparently that's the case! With as much money as they're charging people, the place should have new paint and amenities that function properly and be CLEAN.

Pros: Convenient location, great instructors

Cons: Not kept up, not open Sunday, poor customer service

Paid over 900 for two year membership and , only went few times , was told i expired in april 2009. Manager did not explain as of that time I would still be in contract for month to month payment. And had to give them 30 day notice. So need to say i have late fees, and membershipdues which i do not even go. They did the same thing to my friends so just watch out. I will never recomend this place to anyone. They didnt want to work with me at all, knowing i had only been there a few times and still paid, So work out at home and save your money.
