THE WORST GYM EVER!!!

In the 30 years I have been going to the gym, I have never experienced a worse gym than this.

The Pool & Steam room NEVER work. Instead of having a sign that says: ""Whirlpool is Closed"", they should replace it with one saying: ""Whirlpool is OPEN"". That's how often both the steam room & whirlpool are closed.

On top of that, the staff there are deceived in thinking they are gangsters just because they make $10/hour. One of the staff member took out a cigarette ON THE GYM FLOOR. I mean, come on! How unprofessional can you get.

The rest of the equipment is average at best, and the treadmills are usually broke.

YES, BALLY TOTAL FITNESS EARNED 5 STARS FOR THE WORSE! Joined 8 years ago, very active for 1st year, got pregnant, didn't go although paid everything in full for 3 years contract. Didn't even bother to have them refund the money even it was high risk pregnancy. Now w/ NYSC, so happy w/ them. Clean, profesionalism & best client service. Too bad, my hubby still a member there.

I joined Bally's 4 years ago signing a 3 year contract. After that 3 years was up, I asked more than one person on the counter if I needed to do anything to keep my contract canceled because I dont want Ballys anymore. They said once the contract is up, its up. Nothing to it.

After that, I got a letter from Ballys CORPORATE saying I owe them $1300 because I didnt officially cancel the membership so they charged a whole year's membership as a penalty. THEY EVEN GOT THE BALLS to mail me a collection agency letter demanding money I dont owe PLUS a coupon asking if I want to come back ""because they missed me"" for a low low price!!

It ruined my credit score, I had to write to the BBB and they ran some B.S. about me to get this over with. If you go online and search Bally's and complaints. you will see I am not the only one. This is a common practice with this gym franchise.

If something like a gym ruins your credit score and has nothing but computerized customer service phone numbers to give you, you better stay far far away.

Stick to small gyms where you can talk to PEOPLE.

Remember, when you talk to them about contract details, what they say is not always the truth and once you sign it, you will regret it. This was the location where my headache began

The location is convenient, maybe that is why it is always crowded. They have a good number of treadmills, stationary bikes and elliptical machines. They also have all the basic weight machines.

The pool is average clean like a regular public pool. I think it would be more appealing if they invested in some good lighting...the pool area is very dark and dingy looking.

Locker rooms are very stinky. I know locker rooms all have some degree of stinkage, but you would think they could clean the inside of the lockers and floors every once in a while...and invest in lysol spray.

This place is the pits...Living 5 minutes away...Hundreds of members use the Pool/whirlpool facilities day to day for the best possible exercise known, "Swimming"...But 50% of the time the pool is closed, for the history of its existance..When asking management about it ...They simply say the pool is out of order or the Lifeguard didn't show...Yet they have 3 or 4 uniformed personal sitting around in their small offices sipping their coffee and chatting or smoking cigarettes outside . You think that after their lifeguard called in sick 3-5 times in 2 weeks, that they would have a contingency plan ? NO ! Let the members suffer ! You think they would place an ad in some colleges/high schools to get someone to dual as a lifeguard and personal assistant,instead of having multy people sitting around ?

Going to a gym is suppose to improve your well being, relieve stress and get you into a healthy routine ..This place forces you to get into lazy routine , due to their pool closures and brings stress to you with their stupidity and carelessness.

Time for new management !

Can someone say REFUND ?

This gym is very convenient. It's located just steps away from the 18th Avenue and 20th Avenue train stop on the D line. They have a large weight room and a cardiac exercise room to get your heart rate up. This Bally's also has a decent sized swimming pool. Unfortunately, their swimming pool aren't the cleanest and the lighting is pretty poor. But... they make up for those faults by having a large steam room. This is the only gym in the area with all of these facilites.
