As a member under the Holiday franchise, then the Bally's and now the LA Fitness franchise, I must say it was disheartening to discover that the contract now offered by LA Fitness has an EXCULPATORY CLAUSE to protect them from liability... BE AWARE that if you get injured for any reason, any cause, any failure on LA Fitness' behalf they will NOT be liable! You exercise at LA FITNESS totally AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

I suffered a slip & fall in the women's locker room/shower area because the facility did not use no skid mats on the floor. The water soaked mats on the floor skidded right out from under me and I suffered a concussion, contusions, and other muscular injuries... court ruled that the EXCULPATORY CLAUSE was enforceable! That's right I got nothing for my pain & suffering, loss wages, and medical. BE AWARE!!!

Overall, this gym is ok. There is always a treadmill or elliptical machine available, the classes (spin/kickboxing) are great, although the spin classes fill up quickly and more bikes should be added. The kickboxing class was great- but the saturday instructor was terrible- she was disorganized with combinations, hard to follow- and i hardly broke a sweat. You are better off with a tae bo dvd. There aren't a whole lot of options for people who work past 5pm as far as classes- they need more kickboxing/cardio classes at night-7pm/8pm. I stopped using the lockers after I heard there were people breaking into them, so it's annoying to carry my bag around with me from machine to machine, and I refuse to leave anything in the car bc the parking lot has no security. the biggest problem is the gym needs to be cleaned-bathrooms and locker rooms- and is hot as hell if you use the cardio equipment upstairs.

Funny how people going to a gym to work out and get in and stay in shape complain of having to walk too far from their car to the front door of the building.
Must be the same people who smoke before and after their workout..
I like the gym, but I agree, it's a mess in the free-weight section. Late at night, around midnight it feels like i am out in the yard on Rikers. Alot of undesirable characters hang out there...Deters me from going at all.

the gym is very good the staff could be more friendly. People who complain should go to a more upscale fitness center if they don't want to associate with the "riff-raff". The price is ok!
I think that the trainers should be more connected with the members esp according to age, health hx, and physical ability. The trainers should be more knowledgeable regarding the physical limitions of the clients. The trainers should be given courses to help them better suit the individual needs of the client The training managers should match up the right client with the appropriate trainer.

Great Gym for only $50.00 a month. Wish they would increase the monthly fee and get the riff-raff out. Plenty of members lacking in the hygiene area. Empty water bottles,used tissues left behind,people spitting in showers and steam room,leaving weights all over the place.. Always amazes me how people (male and female) can be such sloths. This is not an LA Fitness issue its a society issue! Members complain about the staff I disagree I complain about the members!

Do not sign up for this gym, avoid at all costs. employees are very rude and sales people are worse then used car salesmen. the gym is very pact from 4pm-9pm. and many theives in locker rooms, even women locker rooms. i hate mainly the staff, especially the managers who try to kick people out the gym. when you complain about a trainer, the manager will ALWAYS side with the trainer, none of the employees ever went to college. enough said. stay away.

PROS--
1. An amazing array of equipment, some of the best strengthening equipment you'd find in a gym.

2. The place is a city of its own. All kinds of people go here. Of all the gyms in the area, this has been the gym that over the years has had the singles pick-up seen, if any.

3. Treadmills an other cardio machines are in generally good condition.

CONS--
1. The parking is awfull. There are not enough spaces and the lot is a mess. When the weather is bad you can have to walk a long distance in it.

2. Lockers--The lockers are too small especially during the winter when you'd be wearing heavier street clothes.

3. Air Conditioning--The gym is WAY too warm especially during the summer, but even during other times of the year. Other local gyms in the area (especially NY Health & Racquet in Great Neck) have improved in this regard, so LA Fitness better get their A/C pumping or they're going to lose more members.

4. Cardio Theatre--It is not easily compatible for Ipods or many headsets. It is hard to believe that management let this aspect of the facility be so outdated.

5. Crime--Word of mouth has it that locker break-ins, lock-box break-ins, and car break-ins are UP again.

I was nagged, cajoled and ceaselessly gave me a used car type of salesman pitch to get a "personal" trainer. I kept telling them that I have a very bad back, and they SWORE TO ME that they will give me someone with physical therapy background. As soon as I signed, they assigned me to a 20 something know nothing kid who forced me to do sit-ups, and as a result, I now have a herniated disk. I should have sued these bastards. the showers never work, the pool looks disgusting and they have "lifeguards" who do not direct traffic for efficient laps, do not do ANYTHING except do their homework/read/talk on the phone.

This place is horrible. Don't waste your time OR your money. First off, parking is a joke! There is such limited parking spaces and it's right next to the back of warehouses...very unsafe at night, esp. for women, since there is no security. Second, this place is very overcrowded. There was not ONE treadmill and they boast about having so much cardio equipment! The five or six that were empty were of course, broken. Third, there is no towel service. For that price you think there would be. I've never belonged to a gym that didn't provide at least a towel. Fourth, no equipment has slots for you to plug in your headphones. One of the staff told me, oh you need to bring in a walkman. This is the IPOD AGE, not the 80s. Stay far away from this place. A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT TO say the least!!!!

Be CAREFUL! our gym bag was stolen and we had it locked. Someone just broke the lock and did so. It's certainly UNSAFE going to this gym. We are canceling the menbership though we read somewhere else it will be another hassel for sure!
THEY ARE ALL THEIVES!

I have been a member of LA Fitness for 3 years, and go to the gym in Lake Success. It is completely overcrowded and they were too cheap to keep parking spots, North Shore took all the spots. Make sure as a female you bring pepper spray or a tazor because you may be walking through the shady industrial and warehouse area to get to the gym, and there is no security.

Last week 6 cars including mine had there windows smashed in with tons of valuables stolen in daylight. I was in the gym for a little over an hour!!! When I called corporate to complain, they responded that it was not there problem!!!!

Yes this place is gigantic, but it is so packed it is impossible to get a decent work out. This is from a guy's perspective who wants to be lifting any type of free weights at all. The ratio of free weights to machines is embarrassing. Yes they have a good amount of barbell benches, but the dumbell area is extremely crowded and an absolute mess. You are guaranteed to never find a pair of dumbells sitting next to each other. It's like a child's nursery with toys everywhere, I wonder if they even re-organize the dumbells each day? To top this off, this is a 120,000 square foot facility with literally 500+ people in there at a time (its HUGE), yet they have 3 squat racks. hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pieces of strange machines, and 3 squat racks? did a bunch of 80 year old men do the equipment purchasing? on the bright side from what I've seen there is a good amount of cardio equipment, but I tend to do my cardio at home.

also, keep in mind that you will never find a parking space and will have to walk 300m to get inside.

coming from nysc in garden city, which is a small over-priced basement in itself, i actually regret leaving.

I have been a member since before the club opened. They have plenty of equipment and the place is always clean. I did have a problem bringing someone on a guest pass before because my friend did not have a guest pass but they extended me a free one day pass for free. The only negative is the hours on the weekend. Staff is usually friendly and I would recommend this place to anyone.

I never even got to join LA Fitness because of their EXTREMELY shady selling practices. I went in to speak with a sales representative despite the fact that I just wanted to try it out for a week(I was given no other option) Then the representative Vanessa told me that they were extending me a courtesy 1 day trial that would have normally cost $20 like they were doing me a favor. As if I am going to pay $20 to try out a gym!!! Then I find out that I can go online and get a free 3-day pass but since nobody ever told me about it I could no longer get that because I had tried the free one day!!!! Then I find out that there is a student discount that nobody saw fit to let a 23 year old college student know about the student discount! I do not like being treated like a walking dollar sign. I would never ever join a gym with such terrible selling practices Stay away from LA Fitness.

I've been going to this gym for over a year now and it's been great so far. This gym is very large. There are plenty of treadmills for one thing. The amount of weight equipment is numerous as well. There's also a pool, jacuzzi, and sauna. Showers are decent. The lockers are a little fragile. Early on, there were break-ins, but it looks like they've fixed the problem for now.
Overall the gym is great and you are not required to have an annual contract.

PROS: Very large gym. Plenty of equipment.
CONS: Lockers are a little suspect.
