We went on a Sunday and took a 7 day free membership. We were promised 29.99/month for two of us and two months deposit on the very first day of joining the club. After two days on trial we decided to enroll and then came the bummer. It will costs 40/month for two and 90 bucks as deposit (which includes facilities access card fees). The reason being this Pete guy is a manager and the guy who initially gave us the figure is just a trainee. We continued on our trial membership and finally decided to go with it.

Then comes another shocker. There is a $29.99 annual maintenance fee which will be charged after initial 3 months of using their facility. We still decided to go with it inspite of all unpleasant surprises. Here comes the most ridiculous part. The front desk represenative asked us to swipe the credit card so as to get the details for setting up electronic payment and made the contract for just ONE person with $80 as initial deposit. And then we were asked to swipe again for another $25 for the second personnel/add on member (against agreed upon $90 initial deposit for two). I questioned 80+25 doen't add up to 90. The front desk guy tried to play with the computer keyboard for 15 mins and finally said "You can come on normal business hours and renegotiate the contract with our manager Pete".

Now i have to take a cancellation form from them which has to mailed overnight to their headquarters in California to get my refund just because i was
foolish to run my credit card.

Beware of the morons you are going to deal with.

This is my third time joining Ballys' in the past nine years or so. First two times I managed to get out of my contract early do to moving. This time I was lured back by a $10 a month contract. At a price like that it is difficult to complain.

However, when it pertains to your health and well being perhaps it's not the time to be thrifty, and spending more for a membership than you spent last night at Taco Bell isn't a bad idea.

Basically, this gym is about what I would expect for ten bucks a month. Same equipment they had when I first walked in there back in 2002, rarely any employees (if ever) walking the floor to re-rack weights or clean up, always crowded, and short hours. They close at 4pm on weekends....

Wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't always busy, even at 5:30 am there is no shortage of people milling about. Seems to be a popular place for seniors to gather and socialize as well.

The majority of the treadmills happen to be in line-of-sight of the glass windows to the pool / hot tub area. So prepare to constantly see overweight men walking around with their shirts off while you are doing your cardio.

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be many "gyms" left nowadays, just a million health club franchises everywhere you look. Ballys' is definitely one of the least expensive ones, so if you are looking for the $10 dollar experience, look no further.

This is not your upscale gym. You can't go there after 5pm on Saturdays and 4pm on Sundays. The women's locker room feels like it has mold that's waiting to cling to you. The hairdryers have been broken for months. There's always hair in the sinks, and the toilers are creepy to sit on. The place is just skanky. If I hadn't been a member so long (so my monthly fee is only $20) I would definitely go somewhere else. It's just not a motivating lace to go. Cannot recommend - this should be their flagship - it's right next to their coprorate offices.
