Hi! Sign in to let us know how Powerhouse Gym was?
Write a Review
.

I was a member of Ballys Gym on Rt. 22 until I moved to Essex County. My friend invited me to Powerhouse. We watched a Zumba class and then decided to join in. We loved the class! I joined the gym that same day because of that class. I've been a member of this gym for almost three years because I love the Zumba instructors and classes.
However, within the last 18 months, the aerobics room has become a sauna. I have complained to the owner 'Greg' three times about the lack of circulating air in the aerobics studio. At times it is unbearably hot and suffocating in the aerobics studio.
My first two conversations with the owner, Greg, was in early Spring of 2013. I approached him about the lack of air circulation and lack of central air in the aerobics studio. I told him that it was extremely hot in the aerobics studio. He complained about central air problems in the gym and said that he was in the process of getting it 'fixed'. Then he told me that the company he hired to fix the central air problem did something incorrectly. He then proceeded to show me a pile of receipts and told me he had been dealing with this problem for over a year. I advised him to hire an attorney and take this company to court. His story didn't make much sense to me. I asked him to at least put some extra fans in the aerobics room since the heat and lack of circulation in the room is unbearable at times. He told me he would.
Fast forward 2 months later....conversation #3unbearably hot again in the aerobics studio, no fans. I went to talk to Greg again. He was too busy to talk to me. I refused to budge. I was dripping with sweat and my body was overheating after a superheated workout in a superhot, stinky, unbreathable aerobics room. I must admit, I went off! I was livid that I had to keep talking to someone who would so nonchalantly ignore his clients request. This was also a safety issue and I wasn't the only client complaining about this aerobics studio. The fact that Greg couldn't even put extra fans in the studio really upset me. He couldn't meet his clients half-way? The conversation was not successful.
This gym wants their monthly gym payments on time otherwise they will restrict your account right away. They charge you a yearly maintenance fee, but they cant maintain areas in the gym that are in need of repair or need an upgrade. SMDH Where is the money from the yearly maintenance fees going to? Not to fixing the central air in the aerobics studio.
It is now February 2014 and I am still a stupid member of this gym. Its been hard to leave because I have built up such camaraderie with my Zumba instructors and many of the members who attend the classes. However it is Winter and the aerobics studio is still super hot!!! Unbelievable! Greg has not put any additional fans in the aerobics studio. The central air is not fixed (if that was even the real problem). I have made a decision to talk to Greg one last time otherwise I will leave this gym. It took me a long time to create committed schedule to exercise and to attend my Zumba classes faithfully. Thank you Greg for destroying 3 years of hard work and good relationships. Its not easy to find the right instructors who are the perfect fit for a client. I will miss my Zumba instructors.

Powerhouse gym Bloomfield is an excellent bargain my membership cost me 29.00 per month which was a summer special they were running. I'm not sure who signed me up but I think he was the owner explained in great detail the membership terms and the fact that this special was temporary for the month of July. Everything was very straight forward and direct I never felt any presure to join which I greatly appreciated. To me I have a gym close to my house that's 24 hrs most days I never wait on equipment and the staff is so friendly. I did have some reservations based on some of the reviews on here but I'm glad I joined I feel very much at home and I get a really good workout. Let me also say that my fellow members at this gym are really great as,well in a few moths I've made some really good connections and friends!
My only complaint is that we could use some new dumbbells and and maybe a sauna or steam room! I did ask the guy who signed me up and he said there will be some new equipment and maybe a sauna before years end. We will see! Hope this review helps Peace

So I joined powerhouse gym lately because of ray. He was very much informative about the culture of the gym and the and the amenities. Now I know they run deals at times just like Macy's or any other business do, but what I did not like was the fact that the membership was $29 one month and when I came to sign up it was $35 and $50 a month. But after speaking to some of the other members about the prices and the broken equipments they made it clear to me it is the owners fault. I then went to the front desk and ask who is the owner and the supposed to be front desk manager was more interested in her conversation about sex and her boy friend with one of the juice bar attendant. After waiting about 2 min to ask the front desk manager my question she then told me the owner name is Greg and that he is in a meeting. I waited for 1 hour and he never came out or even page for me. On my way out I stop by ray office to let him know I wanted to talk to the owner and he try to talk to me about my issues and I told him I'm very upset and I know it's not his fault but I need to speak to someone in ownership. Ray went so far that he knocked at the door with me and there was no answer at all but the lights was on and this guy Greg never came out. Ray apologize to me for the complete disregard for the owners and the unprofessionalism at the front desk. I then left a note at the front desk with the front desk manager with my name and number for Greg to call me back and he never did up to this day still. I came in the other day and some of the guys that I work out with told me that the reason why I got nowhere with my issues was because the front desk manger is Greg's girl friend and that he covers for her all the time and she does the same and nothing gets done around here. After I was told this info by some of the members I got more upset and frustrated with ray cause I thought he pulled a fast one on me by signing me up to this gym. But after my work out me and the guys them was talking and we realize it's really not ray fault cause he doesn't set prices and he has no power over the owner and if the manager at the front is in a relationship with the owner then there is really no fair balance for the members or possibly the employees. Listen people the best thing to do is join La fitness or any-other gym WARNING DON'T JOIN POWERHOUSE GYM cause all the owners care about is your money and not any issues with there gym

Dont sign up at this gym if you dont want to sweat like a pig when u walk thru the door. They dont turn on the AC no matter how much you complain. Bad for Business!!!!!!
Upstairs is like a sauna, the water fountain spews out dirt, and the water is not cold. I am disgusted by the condition of this gym and i wonder if its because it caters to minorities?

The juice bar at this gym is the only plus. The previous reviews are some true because the gym is outdated & 1/2 the machines dont work. Ray signed me up and he is a fraud. He made me think i was getting a deal but my friend is paying less and she signed up 2 days after me. Probably because he used to mess with her cousin. He operates like a snake and when my contract is over at the end of the year im out. the cancellation policy doesnt make sense too. you have to give them 2 months notice like youre paying them rent

Powerhouse gym is an ok gym The only reason why I signed up was because of my friends and my trainer. Its close to me and the classes are good. It does need MAJOR renovations!!!! I wont be renewing my contract next year. But Ray who signed me up was really nice. Even after I signed up he still remembered my name and he says hi every time he sees me. As far as the trainers go, they are really good. If Powerhouse make those renovations, it will be a great gym.

i was thinking about join and i didn't know that powerhouse was in Bloomfield, cause i never notice the place never mind its like in between two gas stations. anyways i join the gym and I'm so glad i did cause i was very happy about the gym. the equipment is in great condition the only thing i can say is bad is that some of the other members lack the respect to put back there weights. as I'm doing this review i notice some other reviews that just had nothing to do with the gym and working out. people the gym is really good just go and check it out or get a free pass like i did and work out and enjoy the luxury of having nice facility with access anytime to clear your mind.

So I got a free guest pass from my friend to powerhouse and I went for the 3 days and I checked out the gym and it was really nice and so was the members and staff. At first I didn't know where everything was because no one had given me a tour. But when I went to sign up I met with Ray and he did give me a tour and I told him the only way I would join is if he hooked me up and he did. The only reason I'm writing this review is because I told a friend about the gym and who to see to sign so I can get a free month for referring her and she told me about someone trying to write a bad review about the gym and the person who help me out a lot meaning ray. Ps its a really good gym and as for the trainers which I think is really good but I couldn't afford it right now. But i have to say Freddy is really helpful, him and ray are like twins they are always together and they make it fun to be there and work out, they talk to everyone. Oh yea I still got my free month my friend still join and I'm so glad she didn't listen to all the bs people write and my membership # is 5209_ and hers is #5270_

Powerhouse is a really nice gym. The great thing about this gym is the atmosphere, it is clean and the employees there are really polite and enthusiast about helping you out. This gym has a lot of free weights which is great. Unlike some of the other cheap gyms like retro this gym isn't really bad in price and the hours are great for the money your spending. I was also impress with the owners ( Greg and his partner) the old guy who deals with the maintenance. As for the person who sign me up, it was Ray. He stayed pass his time of work and help me understand most of the machine upstairs meanwhile the trainers didn't care too because I wasn't a client of there. From a scale from 1 to 10 I would give it a 8 but it's a really good gym just don't listen so much to the negative people go and see for yourself.

Some of the reviews are true. i have been working out there for the past few mos and it does need an update, but its ok for the time...i dont think i will be renewing my membership here.

I signed up with Ray who I thought was coming on to me when I signed up. He didnt have on a ring and was very flirty but I soon found out he is married and his side piece Jakee works with him. I then realized he is all about closing a sale. so new members...dont fall for the hype. Loser

I read some of the reviews on here and almost didn't visit this gym but then checked google and decided to try it out and I'm glad I did! I had no intention of joining that day but the whole experience was very professional and the place was nothing like some of the other reviews had depicted. My sales rep, I think his name was Greg who is also the manager, gave me the tour of the facility which was very clean and had every piece of equipment I would need not to mention a nice boxing studio that had 5 different types of bags. They also have 3 aerobic studios and a lot of cardio! Powerhouse is also a 24 hr. gym so this was also a big plus for me!
Now the best part was I WAS NOT PREASURED TO JOIN! I was given all the information as though I was talking to a friend I left but came back 20 min later to join.
I have been there for a month now it's a,really good gym with an amazing staff they all smile and make the members feel so welcome! Management should be proud keep up the great work!!!

The only good thing about this gym are the variety of classes. The instructors aren't the best, just ok. the cancellation policy is crazy though and when u sign up they breeze through that part for a reason, especially if you sign up with R.R.,
Facility is old and needs and update....PRONTO

THE STAFF IS VERY FLIRTATIOUS...they purposely hire attractive girls for the front desk to appeal not only to the members but to the male employees...Ladies be weary of R.R....we shall leave it at THAT!!!

The cancellation policy is absurd!! I cancelled by letter in September 2011. Their billing company continues to send a bill stating I must pick up a cancellation form from the nearest facility. I am no longer in the area. (S/n the facility is overpriced and the equipment is not up to date.)

Really a great gym best free weight section its a cross between the hardcore Diamond Gym and the more upscale Signature. Another really nice aspect is that the free weight section and cardio pieces are on two different floors much more relaxed feeling upstairs with a large selection of cardio and machines. Im not crazy about the spin studio it definitly needs some work but the main aeobic studio is really nice and my wife loves the classes. Btw grat customer service all the girls at the counter are always smiling and the guy who signed us up was a pleasure to deal with, very professional and courteous I think he was one of the owners. One pet peave the air conditioning upstairs didnt seem to work that great the early part of the summer other than that a great gym at an affordable price

I moved to CA, so I wrote a letter asking them to terminate my membership. I received a letter from their corporate office saying they would, unless there was a gym in my area that my membership could be transferred to. That was in January 2011. Did not hear from them until May 2011, when monthly dues were taken out of my credit card. No word from anyone yet on this. Very poor customer service. BTW - the gym was good for working out

This gym isn't really that bad. My wife and I have been members for 3 years. Renewed our membership every time it expires. I must say they have improved in a lot of ways.
The staff are actually nice and pleasant. Juice bar sells real real food. The women's locker room is renovated which my wife liked very much, new shower rooms, sinks, etc.
So i don't know about those reviews below me but Powerhouse Gym is improving.

im no longer into working out at powerhouse gym because the gym no longer feels like a place to go and work out it feels like a hotel. we all know the gym machine there is not the best but damn does the staff have to be like a bunch of robots. before the staff just use to say hi and enjoy your work out now they say some stuff that you would hear in a hotel and they got this new guy name dan or danny who is always walking up to you and talking while you try to work out. i think the only two people who are still THE same is the two bosses RAY R AND GREG BUONO and the people @ THE JUICE BAR. the gym just feels FAKE it use to be a place of comfort it just feels FAKE NOW.

The gym is ghetto, the cancellation policy is awful and with respect to the health hazard mentioned, I did get a skin rash which I firmly believe was a result of the gym. (I got it in the winter and the only time my skin was exposed outside of my home, was in the gym). The only reason I went as long as I did was because they have one really good trainer that got me over a plateu and whipped me into shape- Shubert. With the exception of him, I have to say, this gym is sub-par at best.

The equipment at this gym is in a POOR condition
Ripped leather poses a PUBLIC HEALTH HAZARD - heard about MRSA?
Equipment in need of repair are not removed from the floor or replaced
SAFETY HAZARD- Equipment is supposed to be totally functional so that injury is not possible to the individual

Options: LAW SUIT (for unsafe equipment) vs CLOSURE for public health hazard

Or we can always leave....

i think phg is very clean and the staff is really great. all i can say is that since i have been there everyone has treated me with respect and the only thing i can say bad about the place is that some of my co members dont put back there weights. AND OUT OF ALL THE EMPLOYEES THERE RAY REDDOCK IS LIKE THE BEST.he keeps it really with everyone and last time i had a problem he help me out the most.His boss Greg is kool but i know he is all about business but they do have alot of weight and classes and stuff to keep you busy and it is not one of those gym where people stand around and talk and look like if there modeling it is a real gym where you can get alot done.

Powerhouse is an okay gym at most. The trainers are a joke, so don't bother. Unless you are a young eager female expect to get placed on a machine and forgotten about. Their cardio classes were decent. If you want to join the Sat classes I suggest you get there early. There are WAY too many juice heads on the first floor (read: hostile to women) when you try to use the free weights and benches. The regular crowd can be loud and distracting. Staff and other members flirt and hang out all over the work out floors making it hard to focus on your own work out. Their cancellation policy is non existent. The gym continued to bill my friend after she did everything in her power to cancel her membership AFTER her contract expired. Beware of any personal training sessions "free" or "included" with a new membership. The trainers don't work for the gym and it's a task to get the trainers! to honor the free sessions.

This gym is convenient (location) but i didnt care for the training. They really don't explain the termination fees clearly. Make sure you ask specific questions about canceling. After reading the reviews I was ready for a battle, however Ray Reddock seemed helpful. (that other review must have straightened him out :) The process was still annoying but ... I'm out of the contract now. I decided to use my work and school gym instead since its much cheaper.

this gyms equipment is actually very good. its missing a few peices on gym equipment that im use to working with but altogther good equipment, however, staff is disgusting. And when i went through all proper procedures to cancel my membership simply because id be going off to school in another state where a gym is free, they gave me an uneccesarily hard time. Ray Reddock is a pig. if you sign up for a membership do so with anyone else besides him. he's the person i dealt with. I dont recomend him but other staff members are fine. and gym itself with the exception of ray reddock is also fine.

Ok, it's a ghetto gym BUT it's pretty hardcore and not for the faint of heart.. Just go in do your work-out and leave.. I always have a good work-out there. The equipment is pretty good.

Great place to work out of you live in the surrounding area. I wouldn't recommend it if you live more then 10 miles away because getting there during peak traffic times can be just about impossible. great selection of free weights and machines. First floor is exclusively free weights and CYBEX machines. Second floor has all the cardio equipment. Cardio section does get very crowded after 6pm so try and avoid going right after work for all the reason mentioned above.

PROS: Great Selection
CONS: Price
