Nice club. Amazingly clean. Very Very Very NICE STAFF.
I wish they would turn the music up louder!
Could use a better mix of music that keeps us moving!

A trainer was nice enough to go out of his way and point out to me that I was doing an exercise on a piece of equipment incorrectly. He showed me the correct way and made sure I understood the correct way to do it even though I was not signed on with any trainer. Pretty cool!

I find the staff very helpful - not pushy either.

Real polite and mostly courtious atmosphere all the way around with everybody.

Danny at Bally in Dearborn Fairlane is the worst trainer there! he acts like he's training but he really doesn't knw what he's doing. He's new at his job and not experienced... I don't recommend him at all!! Someone named Daniel used to work there a while ago and he was really nice and experienced. Too bad he doesn't work there anymore!

What an awesome surprise to have a personal trainer (Daniel) to give as much attention and effort to me...an older heavy woman, as he does to the more fit young hard-bodies. He is polite and respectful and really gave 100% of his attention to me during my training session, which I have not always had at other clubs. The club is clean and other than the occasional rude clientele that is at any gym, it is a pleasant workout experience.

I suspect that these are some of the demands that appear on a job application for Bally's (or any other) health club:

A: You must be sullen and bored at all times.

B: We expect you to look at anyone who asks questions of you as if they are really stupid, unless (see next)

C: Only be friendly and helpful to hot chicks, or someone in your own weight and training level. Example; flirt like neanderthals with the girls, and if you are muscular and male, treat other muscular men with utmost respect, act like they are your best friends, and call them "bro". Treat all others, like overweight women, thin men, or older people in general, as if they are invisible.

D: Don't go out of your way for any reason unless the client is about to sign on to something, like a class or a hiring a trainer, that will make the health club some money.

E: Make sure you look at the demographics of the people currently in the gym and then select music you know they will find obnoxious. You will play this music as loudly as possible. You will find great joy in playing ugly rap that includes foul language and secksual situations to the older pilates crowd that comes in at 9:00 am.

Seriously, is there some law that says all health clubs must be populated with snotty, sullen, vaguely mocking and sneering young people? Bally's at Fairlane is no exception, believe me. Every time I walk in with my lifetime membership, I feel like I am intruding on their party time.

Other than that, the facilities are adequate, the bathrooms and showers clean, and the atmosphere is MOSTLY nice. The exceptions would be the choice of music (mentioned above) and the rude groups of 3 to 6 young men that, while using only one machine for working out, manage to use every other machine in their vicinity to rest against, stand their water bottles on, hang up their hoodies and gym bags on, and pace in front of. How annoying to have to ask them to move their things all the time!

Pros: Nice facilities, wide array of equipment, kept clean

Cons: Dimwit staff, rude clientele

Editorial from

The Scene
Most Ballys stick to the basics for their design. Televisions broadcast silently above multiple rows of cardio machines; mirrored walls act as the primary decorative components. But thanks to high-energy television ads…
