I joined court Jester,and to say nothing more it is a basic gym.I wanted to work out for 1 day there to see how it is and i was charged around $15.You think it would be free like american fitness.American fitness membership fee's are uncomprehendable.Less then $10 a day,$90 a year.And $50 for a year of tanning and 40 bucks for an hour message.I admit the gym is old and alot of the equipment is outdated and not funtioning properly.They recently added some new equipment.I admitt the locker rooms are not the greatest and i see people complaining that the lockers are small.How big of a locker do you need.You put you gym bag in there and a few other things and you go workout.Maybe the people complaining about the lockers being to small are upset that they can't hang there 3 piece suit in it,i feel really terrible for you!!!!!!! It an old gym and they do keep it as clean as possible,Everytime i am there there is a cleaner taking care of the bathroom.And people have the nerve to complain about pee on the toilet seats.I guess you feel the cleaner should wait for everyone to finish taking care of there business and wipe the toilet seats.They have plently of spray bottle cleaner around.Wipe it down yourself.I could go on and on about some of the ridicoulos complaints i;m reading about american fitness.Do the people that are serious about bodybuilding and go some place else.

Even though I go late at night, I still find the people to be rude. The cleaning guy there has no social skills and makes you feel uncomfortable. One time I had to use the bathroom and he stood outside the door and waited. I go with my husband and it is hard to work out with him with that guy there. If I didnt want to go to the gym I would leave.

This gym would be fine if you enjoy dated equipment, dirty showers, rude staff, and paying more than you agreed to. At first I thought... okay so maybe it hasn't been remodeled since the 60s but at least its only $10 per month and it includes group exercise classes. But any class worth taking there is at least an extra $5 per class. They continually advertise new equipment that never actually shows up and the tanning beds are falling apart. There are also pictures of their anorexic members posted on the wall just to make you feel motivated to sign up for personal training classes.
NEVER EVER LET THIS COMPANY HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO!!!
When I went to cancel the membership I signed a form and was told that I could keep working out until the 17th(since I would be charged through this date anyway) About 4 months later I noticed that I was still being charged every month. So I went in again to cancel and was not apologized to but instead required to pay $40 to cancel the membership. I will still be charged for another month of membership(since "their system is not capable of stopping the charge") But somehow I am also not allowed to work out for this extra month that I am being charged for. Worst Customer Service I Have Ever Experienced!

Beware of this gym!! Only worked out once but kept my membership for 4-6 months then cancelled! First of all the whole staff of people are RUDE!!! Second its dirty...you get what you pay for! Third when I cancelled, they charged me a fee of $19 but then a month later charged my account again for the membership. I talked to a horrible man named Ray Wilson, who never once apologized for they're mistake, he told me that this happens because they're system isn't perfect!!
So why would I trust a company that they're system is faulty!!!
Pay extra money with another gym! DON'T GO HERE!!!! A little advice to the owner, fire your whole staff and get some people in there who really care about keeping your good name!
PS if you read all the 5 star reviews you can tell its the staff that works there only trying to make it look good!!!

The gym has lots of equipment and personal TVs at aerobic stations and also around the gym. The staff is very rude though and constantly harass folks on their clothing selections, unless you are a young attractive woman. The locker rooms are filthy.

First THE PLUSES: It is very cheap, there is a woman's area and it is large, there's a lot of equipment and the wait time for a treadmill is minimal, there are showers. They offer coprorate discounts for some area companies. Tanning, massage and aerobics available (I have not used any of the last 3 so I cannot comment on them)
THE MINUSES: It is not as clean as I would like it (or as clean as the past 4 gyms I've joined over the years in different cities) , the staff is sometimes friendly, sometimes not, the changing room offers no privacy. There is no pool. They play the crappiest music and it loops- so it seems-I've noticed that if you go to the gym every day at the same time, you will hear the same annoying music each time.
I would suggest checking out other gyms in the area, as well as AFF, and then make a decision.

Great place to go and workout-for the price with amenities.
I am a newbie to the place,lots of machines,more bang for the buck-HOWEVER the staff is exceptionally rude- and look at you like your stupid when you ask a question.

Instead of spending more money on machines they should spend it on training people in respect & friendliness who work for them.They remind me of the girls everyone hates in High School skinny and snobby.

BUT GREAT PLACE TO WORKOUT.

Their staff is horrible. Two weeks before I signed up, I INJURED myself and provided proof to their management. Even with proof, I ask their management if I could cancel my membership because I couldn't exercise and they refused repeatedly until I ended up disputing the credit card charge. Their owner is *nowhere* to be found, and I was even told that contacting him was "not going to happen". Go to another gym if you can. Spare yourself the headache of their idiot staff and management.

I have visited this place 3 times. Every time there was one particular man that felt the need to treat customers horribly. I have since found that his name is Ray Wilson. Because of him, I would never join there. He treats both the customers and employees with complete disrespect and contempt. I will happily spend a little extra money at a pricier establishment in return for being treated as a customer should be.

I have relocated a few times and lived in different towns, American Family fitness is the best gym I have been to and it is the one thing I miss about staying in Vestal.

The place is clean, it has a wide range of machines and exercise equipment. You will not get a better gym at this price.

This is the best fitness center in the area. They have all the equipment you could possibly need. The building is clean and is located in a very convenient spot to access. The staff is also very kind and makes sure things are kept clean. The price is very competitive to other fitness centers as well.

Their equipment is old but they have a ton of stuff. The main problem with this gym is how dirty it is. The men's bathroom is beyond disgusting. Pee all over the floor,men's hair all over the sink from shaving, and pee all over the toilet

Pros: Lots of machines

Cons: Staff (Ray Wilson in particular)

.

The sheer number of machines guarantees that you'll never have to wait to continue your workout. There are classes available for both aerobic exercise, and to learn how to properly use weight training equipment if you're not familiar with it. The women's fitness center is smaller and bit more comforable for me personally, though I'm not adverse to the main gym. Changing areas and showers are clean. Staff is helpful, and group classes look like a blast, though I haven't tried one yet. Open 24 hours during the week. And all this for only $10/month!

I would not recommend this place to my worst enemies. There is one particular employee that works there by the name of Ray Wilson who treats his customers like garbage. From what was witnessed, he treats his co-workers just as badly. He made a mistake and refused to apologize to me, the customer, and instead demanded that I leave the premesis. Is THIS how someone lets a business be run?? It makes you wonder what the owner is like if someone like that is allowed to be at the front desk running this establishment.
It's funny how just one person can ruin the view of such a large facility and make you never want to return there. I would highly recommend spending the few extra cents a day and taking the business to Court Jester or anywhere else where you are treated with respect and kindness.
I am not affiliated with any facility, but simply wanted to go somewhere where I felt comfortable working out... this will never be that place even if it were the only place in business locally.

American Fitness is by far the ares best Fitness Center. Apparently one of their competitors is trying to bash them, thats too bad. I highly reccomend the place. Only $10 per month, the place is enourmous and always clean and open 24 hours and their staff is the best, very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable people. Check it out!

I have been working out at AFF for several years now. I consider myself an astute shopper and have checked out other fitness centers in the area. American Fitness is by far the best. They have so much more equipment than any other fitness center in town and their Yoga, aerobics classes,chilcare, tanning and massage therapist are all tops (I use them all). Throw in the fact that they have wonderful people working there, have a womans only fitness center and are open 24 hours and all of this for only $10 per month (did I mention you can cancel at any time?) and you just ca'nt go wrong. Check it out- I'm pretty sure they will give you a free trial mem. period to do so (they did for me).

Title says it all- if you want a friendly fitness facility go here. Caters to everyone- from newbies to power lifters to body builders. Most people leave the attitude at the door- if you can't do that go elsewhere.
