Don't be fooled by the TV ads - not all Bally gyms are the same. At this particular one, the gym personnel are geared toward the sell first and foremost - if you come in for a tour and try to leave without signing a contract, there will be someone more senior brought in to pressure you into signing up. They do have a Month-to-Month membership, but make sure you read what you will have to do to actually cancel it in Paragraph 2 of the contract. I've worked out at a number of gyms across the U.S. in the past two decades, and this one does not measure up at all. This gym is way too small to accommodate the large number of members who come in to work out during the peak evening hours. Good luck getting on a treadmill or any of the weight machines during the peak rush. This gym also has a poor selection of cardio classes - unless you like cycling - they do have a lot of spin classes; however, this gym does not offer an array of step, cardio kickboxing, or kickboxing-interval training classes during the evening peak time that seem to be common and popular at most gyms. The cardio room is also rather small. The women's locker room is always dirty and sometimes disgusting - even though I've witnessed an employee in there who is supposed to be keeping it clean on a number of occasions.

Despite their catchy campaign advertisements seen on television, with attractive women with sleek and slender bodies, Bally Total Fitness is nowhere the utopia the commercials claim it is. There are no paper towels to wipe down the machines, and bathrooms are not close to being acceptable. Bally also tries to sell you their products, and get you hooked into a contract.

PROS: Nice Advertisements
CONS: Unclean Bathrooms, Sweaty Machines, Constant Product Selling
