I have been a members for several years and would love to find another fitness club but there is little available in the Stillwater area. I am thinking of building my own gym as this establishment has numerous problems. First, it is generally filthy. The locker rooms are dirty as evidenced by dirty floors and sinks. Paint is peeling off the walls, there is an odor of urine in the mens locker room, and the towels are worn and not always clean. There is supposedly wireless available, but it seldom works. The cable system for TV is down more than it is available, and the staff is not helpful and some are downright rude. The attitude of management is "if you don't like it, go somewhere else."

I hate this establishment.

Family Friendly and lots to do. They have updated a little, but the pool area all the way to locker rooms and showers are extremely slippery, and they have done nothing to address this safety issue for years!! Although, I am a member at this club, if there was a better club in Stillwater, that is where I would be going. They seem very unresponsive to issues and/or suggestions from anyone. I have heard people complaint about the floors, cleanliness of the entire club, pool temperatures, incorrect class times on the schedule, and the overall unfriendliness of management/owners. This place is dirty and I personally have never seen anyone clean there in my several years of being a member. Also, they never have anyone dry mop the floors between classes. When going to Yoga you get to stretch out on a filthy, dust bunny floor!!....... If Lifetime Fitness or the Y were closer to my home, that is where I would be going. So in other words, If you don't live in Stillwater why would you join this club? I'm simply there for the convenient location, the pretty good class offerings, and of course most of the instructors and desk staff are friendly.

When we first joined this gym, it seemed like a pretty good deal, but don't look too closely in the corners or in the cupholders on the machines or you will be disgusted. We will be leaving when our contract expires and rejoining the Y where they keep their machines maintained and have friendly helpful staff.
