I've been a member for two years now and go 5 days a week for roughly 2 hours a day. When I first started, the gym was clean, friendly, had a nice group of regular customers who came to actually work-out (not sit on a recumbent bike reading texts) and were also respectful of their environment. The past 8 months or
so, things have changed as attendance isn't what it was and the atmosphere is now much different. The premises are no longer clean. The "newer" customers (who tend to be steroided-up frat bros with no respect, and quite frankly, no idea what they're doing) leave the equipment sweaty and, many times, covered in talcum. The wooden floor in the Studio (where classes are held) appears to not have been swept or cleaned since the Carter administration.

The Staff (including Trainers) at RH&F are about as useful as the malfunctioning cab driver from Total Recall. When not making offensive jokes to customers sharing their political views, they are openly disrespectful and, quite frankly, verbally abusive to women with whom they work. Not even two weeks ago I witnessed one of the gym's main class instructors kindly ask that a steroided frat bro stop repeatedly dropping a barbell loaded with 500 lbs, as it was completely disrupting a class on the floor below. I then got to watch as two gym Trainers and the Assistant Manager called her a "b--ch" and verbally abused her in front of other customers. The Staff then ENCOURAGED the other customers present to join in. This is especially rich, knowing that there is a well-known domestic abuser from the area on staff. After I emailed the owner about the incident, the next day he called me out in front of the staff I wrote him about, which then made the gym a VERY hostile environment.

The two trainers on staff, both named Mike, appear to have attended the Hollywood Upstairs Medical College of Physical Training. One of the Mike's has a "success" story poster as you walk by the front desk. That "success" occurred about a decade ago at a different gym. If you're a trainer, with no recent success
stories (especially at your current gym), and you consistently run sales putting your price point around that of Walmart Ramen noodles, maybe you should consider becoming an Uber driver. The other Mike is rude and misogynistic and appears to know about as much regarding training as I do about building a Flux Capacitor. If
it's a choice between these guys or breaking out your old VCR to go "Sweatin' To The Oldies", you're pretty much guaranteed a better workout with Richard and the gals.

Due to all of this, I will now be going to a different local area gym. It's a shame too, because I very muched enjoyed and looked forward to my workout here, but it's just not the place it used to be. After the membership promotions to get you in the door, the price becomes $42.50 a month (classes an extra $10 on top) and I just feel it's no longer worth the premium if I'm going to be dealing with all of these issues on a daily basis. Still, it's entirely your choice,
just thought I'd throw my experience out there. Thanks for reading!

The gym has a wide array of machines, cardio equipment, classes and extras - like their tanning booths. Its clean, affordable and never crowded. I have never had to wait in line for a machine like in some gyms. Its a nice mix of variety that you don't find in small gyms, but also the noncrowded peacefulness that is hard to find in bigger gyms.

the Riverton Health and Fitness Center is located in an old building on Broad Street across from the River LINE station. Clean, affordable, and never crowded.
