I have never belonged to a gym before because I did not want to commit to the other gyms in the area. It didn't seem that any gym had what I was looking for, at a reasonable rate.

My boyfriend and I stumble across this place, and both really liked it. Since he if more into weights, he decided the price was a little high for what he needed and went to Fitness 19. After a couple of months there, he ended his contract and joined MAC. He realized that a few extra dollars was worth it knowing that he could walk into the gym, and do the workout he planned. At MAC he doesn't have to wait for equipment.

I enjoy taking classes, and MAC has several each day. MAC offers spinning, kickboxing, step, boot camp, extreme tread, total body conditioning, yoga, pilates, and more! The instructors are great, and I love going to get a great workout in 15-90 minutes, depending on the class.

I would recommend this gym to anyone, it's a fabulous place to work out!

Pros: Friendly Staff, Clean, Affordable

.

From day 1, people knew my name, made a point to say hello when I saw them, complimented me on how often I've been working out and that it was paying off, and remembered things from conversations in the past and asked about them. It's a very friendly place; everyone from the desk staff, to the trainers, to the other customers. It's small enough that it's not overwhelming, but it also offers everything I need. The classes are great, and I really enjoy working with my trainer.

Madison Athletic is the best fitness club in Michigan. I have been a member for 2 years and I keep going back for more. State of the Art facility, with exceptional Personal Trainers at your disposal. MAC offers spin, zumba, tae-combo, pace and pedal, step, cardio-sculpt, cardio fusion,pilates and so much more......they even have Boot Camp!
Whatever your needs are in fitness, MAC is the place to be.....I know I am 146lbs lighter in two years with the help of my Personal Trainer, Sgt Major - life at MAC never looked so good!

I was a member here along time ago, then left to lifetime because I thought it would be nicer, with all it's bells and whistles, well I hated lifetime came back to madison. I like a place where the people are friendly and know me by name. they don't try to push their services on you. they have a very helpful and friendly staff. I don't feel like I'm just a number. that really sayes alot. They have a great play room for the kids and I feel really secure leaving my kids there. Keep up the great job!

Pros: great kids room

I have been a member for several years. The club is clean, the equipment is new and the staff is always friendly. There are separate televisions on each treadmill, bike and elliptical machine. The trainers are always around and willing to help. MAC is a good alternative to a national chain club or a franchised gym. It is worth the drive because of the good atmosphere. I highly recommend joining.

Madison Athletic Club is an excellent club. The staff is very friendly and professional. The equipment is brand new and there are individual tvs on the treadmills and elliptical machiines. They also have excellent classes, nice locker rooms. Much better than the franchise gyms you see around.

Don't know why the guy below hates MAC so much but I have been a member for a few years now with my wife.
I enjoy the facility alot. It's kept clean, not busy, and everyone is very nice. Also the pricing is low - we have a family membership lower then any other places we checked out before. My wife likes the classes - I have not done any yet - I just mostly do weights.
I like the Tvs on the cardio machines. It's nice because I can watch whatever I want instead of how those other gyms have 3 tvs on the wall that I have to tune to using a radio.
Check the club out and see for yourself. Everyone is nice, its a great club for the price.

I couldn't find minus star so I rated one star.
Here we go.
1..Be ware before you sign the contract, make sure you read everything, ask everything and have them write everything down coz when you try to get out of the contract when it's end. They will use those things to go against you. MAKE SURE you understand everything before you signed.
2. Do Not sign the CONTRACT!!
3. Go somewhere else, it's cheaper and better.
4. From amount of money they charge, mind as well go join Lifetime. Better facility and staff.
5. S**tty management. Keep in mind, once they got your money, they will try to push everything to be you fault.
6. If you still want to join them, good luck.
7. Do not even try to talk to the manager or staff, whatever it is..it's never be on your own benefits.

Again, be ware before you make the decision, look around in the area.. there are many fitness clubs that are cheaper and provide (better) or the same equipment and everything else.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Management and Staff

I joined 2 months ago and even though I haven't used this gym as often as I have liked (summer I am busy a lot with traveling and kids) I have enjoyed my time there. The staff is very friendly and know be my name. Also I really like the classes. They are free which is nice and I really enjoyed the Zumba, and spinning class. The locker rooms are nice as well. I sometimes go before work and they are a perfect place to get ready. I really like that this gym is not over crowded or with the meatheads at other gyms. Definitely a fan and looking forward to use it more in the fall.

The one downside is that there is not much for my kids. My kids are 3, 10 and 15. The 15 year old is interested in basketball and swimming and they dont have those facilities. Its a nice place for ME but not really kid friendly.

I use to be a member at MAC years ago and left with not that great of experience. Recently I re-joined after hearing it was updated and was under new management. I went in there to look around and was amazed at what they done for it (it was a while since I had been a member). The locker rooms were updated very nicely with a sauna and hot tub in both the mens and women's locker rooms. They really did an amazing job with the updates and renovations. I went to talk about membership and the lady I spoke to was very friendly and surprisingly not pushy (or as pushy as I have been experiencing shopping around for gyms).
I signed up with hopes that it would be a better experience then last time and I am happy to say it has been. This place is ALWAYS clean, SPOTLESS - does not have that nasty gym smell that most places have - also everyone is so friendly and welcoming from the front desk girls all way to the personal trainers who are always willing to help out if I have any questions.
The other great thing about this athletic club are the classes - all of them are free...I enjoy the Power Yoga and Spinning (GREAT WORK OUT). I also do Zumba which is very fun! I havent done any Personal Training yet because my budget wont allow it right now - but I do see alot of people doing it. I like this gym a lot and definitely recommend it. It is a refreshing change from the normal gyms and I am happy that the new management and staff are doing a good job. A+++++

I stopped in a couple days ago just to see what the club was all about. I truly enjoyed everything they had to offer when I talked with one of their sales reps. Do to my job though I was unable to join because I have to relocate. However, I would recomend this club to anyone who is searching for a full service club with locker rooms. Atleast check it out.......

Pros: Full service locker rooms/prices/facility in general

The so call office manager in her 20's has no idea how to deal with costumers has no experience in management and acts like she does not want to deal with you. When you have a problem she will adress the problem in front of other members there. What happen to privacy? This is a joke. Do not put a card on file there. She will charge you 2 or 3 times more.

Just started going and even though I saw through the sales pitch, this was the best deal and location for me. Front desk personnel always seem friendly. Everything seems very nicely updated. I'm not sure what happened prior to March 2009, but I'll pay closer attention to see if my opinion of M.A.C changes. So far I've had nothing but a pleasant experience at this facility. This is a very clean place compared to some of the more well-known gyms and I find it more affordable overall.

wow what a joke management is horrible. I see the manager in there and the only thing he does is workout. I would not reccomend this place to anyone, it is overpriced, poor customer service, and an average gym. I was a member for 3 years found out new members were paying less than i was. I had a blling dispute and was ignored basically and recieved late fee after late fee even though i tried to contact them in regards to the matter. I have moved on to lifetime wow what a difference. dont throw away money at madison athletic club.

Sorry, but I can't recommend this club anymore. It's really gone downhill and is not a friendly place to go and workout. Just buy equipment for your home and work out there. Save your money on this place. I'm extremely disappointed and I think that you will be too. All the best staff has left and that was the only thing that this club had going for it.

I have read the last reviews and I wish they were there when I signed up. The only reviews posted then were the ones that gave 4 stars. Not sure who wrote those but truly this gym is run by management who do not have a clue on how to run a business and treat members. I am paying off my year contract but I have already resigned. I pay $49.95 a month and have to pay .50 to use a small exercise towel and $1.00 to use a slightly larger towel to shower. There are no hair dryers for you to use in the locker room and no shampoo. The good news is that there is never anyone in there showering....gee, I wonder why.
Also it is pointless to talk to the mangagement there about any suggestion on improving customer service. I was told that they have a "huge" loyal member base which tells them they are doing everything right.
If that is true then why are they always trying to get me to refer new people? I am looking for a new gym....any recommendations?

Ah yes, the Madison Athletic Club. As for the facility itself, I give it a thumbs up.. Up-to-date equipment, first-class locker rooms. From the standpoint of just working out, it's a first-rate facility. That's about where the positives end, unfortunately. The Madison Athletic Club is run by its General Manager and a Club Manager. For lack of better terms, they run the club like their own personal playground. Customer Service seems non-existent when it comes to them and what they train their employees to do. Those in the Membership department smooth talk you until they have your name signed to a contract, then the only time they contact you is to try and get new member referals from you. And although the personal trainers they have there are decent, the personal training program itself is a joke. **SOME WARNINGS TO POSSIBLE NEW MEMBERS**.. although video monitored, there are car break-ins on a weekly basis in their parking lot, so do not leave any valuables in your car. Also, be weary when leaving your credit card or bank account information for billing purposes. I say this because all your personal information is kept where ANY employee there has access to it.

If all you care about is a place to workout at, and the other intangibles do not bother you, then go for it. But if you're looking for a combination of great equipment, friendly staff, and first-class customer service.. well then I recommend you look elsewhere.

Please read the next 6 reviews if you'd like to find out what the staff was told to write about the gym. I'm surprised they got off their butts long enough to write them. Lord knows they don't do anything for any member once you've signed up. That's where the customer service stops. Luckily, I was forewarned and only signed up for a short term membership. I'm pretty self sufficient, so I don't need the staff's help, but those who did, did not get it. I felt sorry for the other members that were made promises to and did not get the help they needed. Do yourself a favor and look for other alternatives to exercise. No matter how much money they spend on upgrades to the locker room, they should spend it on new management. Customer service starts at the top, and in this club it is nowhere to be found after you sign your binding contract. The front desk staff tries to be friendly, but they are not supported by any of the management. I feel sorry for them, too. But most of all, I feel sorry for you if you waste your money here.

I joined 3 months ago and have to say this has been a great investment. I am llosing weight and have so much more energy. The ladies locker room is like being away at an upscale hotel. It is beautiful. I really enjoy my work-outs and the staff is great. Try the bootcamp and kickboxing classes as well. You will definetly be impressed with this gym-health club. It is definetly worth going to see if you are serious about joining a gym.

I joined the MAC in January 2007, i thought this was going to be another failed attempt to lose weight. NOT TRUE, I started working with a trainer and doing group fitness classes and now I'm 25 lbs lighter. I only pay $32.95 per month and this is the best money I've spent. The club is really clean and my daughter loves the child care room. I can't say enough about this club. It's the best kept secret around, it's never overcrowded.

Highly recommend this club!!!!!!! I feel awesome every time I leave the club because the staff and atmosphere makes you feel like family, and every one is accepted. The rates are great and there is such a great value in this Facility. The staff takes great pride in accomadating the members and I can't wait until they finish the women's locker room!!!

I love the new steam room and whirlpool in the locker room........it makes working out a much more enjoyable experience. The staff is always so friendly and quick to help with any question I've had. I work out in the evening and I've never had to wait for the equipment that I want. I just tried the boot camp class (I can't believe I did) it will kick your butt.

I have been training at the "M.A.C." for several years now, and it has been a very enjoyable experience. I've worked out at several "gyms" in the past, but the MAC provides me with a great relaxed atmosphere. For myself, the greatest feature is working out and never having to wait in line for any equipment, and that includes that peak "after-work" time of night! As soon as I walk into the club, one of the friendly front desk girls greets me and provides me with a key to my locker. Speaking of the front desk girls, the overall staff at the club is very friendly, and has always taken care of any questions or problems I've had. Their maintenance crew seems to do a great job at keeping the club clean, and I've never had to deal with an "out-of-order" sign on any piece of equipment! They're even beginning complete renevations of the lockerrooms later this month! Ohh, if you're looking to participate in their aerobics or group fitness classes, try the 15 minute 'Ab Blaster' class, best ab workouts I can get! One feature that has upgraded 100% over the last couple years is the Personal Training department. I have began working with a trainer a few months back, and I've seen the best results I've gotten in years! I've read other reviews on here from people who just seem to live completely miserable lives, but that's just my opinion! I could go on and on about the MAC, but I recommend checking it out for yourself. But please excuse me, I have a personal training appointment!

Pros: Atmosphere, equipment, staff, experienced personal trainers

While a few of the the counter staff girls were usually friendly the management was horrendus. They are very rude and ONLY care about getting new members. I was also lied to by the membership coordinators regarding use of equiptment. Furthermore, AFTER my year contract was up I went to cancel because I was moving out of town and they charged me for 2 more months even though I wouldn't be in town to use the facility because I didn't give them "60 days notice." The lockerroom and showers are the most disgusting I've ever seen at a gym. The showers are dark, dingy and dirty, as if they never clean them (which the probably don't). Get a pair of shower sandals and never forget them. The cardio equiptment is very very outdated, the treadmills are about to fall apart and their bikes are comical, from the early 90s at best. I also found that the personal trainers waltz around like they own the place and will cut infront of you on equipment.

Overall, this place is a bunch of money grubbing, rude, arrogant jerks. Find a better gym...which is any gym.

I don not reccomend this club to anyone! The will treat you like a "guest" until the minute the you sign the "contract", which then at that point you become just a paying member with a number. The Management has no business sense at all. I expected the one feature that they had that other large corporate gyms in the area wouldn't was the customer service, don't be fooled. That is what I was willing to pay for because the price does not reflect the quality of the facility or the expertise of the staff in any areas. Not to mention you can never find a place top park and the locker rooms are dirty. I would definitely think about very hard and long before you sign that horrible contract!

I do not under any circumstances recommend this club. They are not friendly unless they were trying to get you to sign a contract. Once the pen hits the paper they are rude, inconsiderate, and unsatisfying. I was disappointed in their managerial decisions. The gym is very over priced. Their staff is not friendly or cooperative once you are a member. I don't reccommend this establishment to anyone looking for a respectable gym.

Mixed crowd ? young 20 somethings, families, middle-age adults. Machines are new. Not flexible in pricing. Offer childcare services. Great hours. Friendly staff. Locker rooms are nice ? include showers, sauna and tanning beds. Tanning packages are often competitively priced. There are multiples of every machine. Flat screen TVs are located throughout. Trainers are on staff.

PROS: Not always crowded
CONS: Not willing to budge on pricing structure.

Not worth the inflated price. Equipment is average. Staff is slightly above average. Building is pretty run-down.
