I joined this gym in february because I was out of shape. I made my resolution and then procrastinated for a month. I haven't been in a gym before so I was not looking forward to it. I checked out a couple gyms in the area. This gym isn't the prettiest place around but it seemed like there were normal-looking people working out there, and the people at the counter were pretty nice, so I figured why not. They have way more and better equipment than the Y and it had a lot better atmosphere than the Lockport Athletic and Fitness Center.
Now that I've worked out there for a while I love it. I'm finally getting in shape and I've met some cool people. I've seen all types of people there. Its not a spandex show but there are some people like that there, its not a bunch of giant bodybuilder walking around, but there are some of them too. everyone is friendly to each other though. it's not what I expected!
the best thing is they don't try to rope you into some crazy contract. you can join for whatever time you want, plus it's cheap.

This is the best gym I've belonged to in my 25 years of training. This facility has a supportive staff and well kept equipment. Most importantly, The Ultimate Physique has an encouraging and friendly atmosphere.

I must correct my last review. I mistakenly said the Buffalo Athletic Club was five minutes away when I really meant the Lockport Athletic Club, so everyone writing reviews can calm down. Just to inform anyone visiting this site, the only two positive reviews were actually written by relatives and close friends of the owners so they would certainly only say positive things. I am telling it from the view of myself and others that I have personally spoken too. These people are now enjoying the amenities of the L.A.C which includes a personl trainer, no complaining, without complaint signs hanging everywhere, steam rooms, tanning beds, CLEAN locker rooms and much much more.
IF you wish to catch atheletes foot or M.E.R.S.A then by all means check out the outdated Ultimate Letdown and be sure to wear a gas mask to avoid all of the so called smelly people there. Apparently the owners have no problem letting those individuals know who they are.
Go somewhere professional for a professional workout. Dont trust these con artists for a minute.
By the way, for the year I was a member at the Ultimate Letdown I never once saw a minority. So unless your rich and white dont plan on joining.

Pros: absolutely none

Cons: The Lockport Athletic Club had not bought these idiots out

Dear Speed Racer (see review below):
The Buffalo Athletic Club is NOT five minutes away.

(Now that that is off of my chest, I've added my review below. I wrote this a few months back for another review site. Please excuse the cross posting.)

Ultimate Physique is a great hometown fitness club. The owners are always around, whether working a shift, or just stopping in, and the staff in addition to them is also friendly and helpful. The membership prices are extremely reasonable and towels are always provided, fresh, clean, and AT NO ADDITIONAL COST.

I joined about four years ago, and at first was weary about what the clients would be like. (I was overweight and wanted to be comfortable in my surroundings). To my surprise, even the clients are wonderful and friendly. You have all ages, all shapes and sizes and it makes the environment so much better to work out in. Everyone greets you by your name and is there if you need help, but never pushy.

As far as classes go, there are a few offered and most are free with membership costs. Pilates you do have to pay for in addition, and that is also for cycling classes.

One of my favorite things about the gym is the hours. Ultimate is open at 5:30am on weekdays. This is great for someone who wants his/her workout before tackling a busy day at the office. Also, the gym is open at 8am on weekends, in addition to many holidays for a few hours in the morning. (Great for killing extra calories before the big meal, and helps one deal with stress before that house full of family arrives!)

Overall, Ultimate Physique is a wonderful workout facility and the only reason I could ever find myself leaving would be if I had to move out of the area. (And then I wouldn't know what to do!)

I am shocked by the extremely negative review given to Ultimate Physique and the owners. Obviously this person has not worked out often at Ultimate Physique or they are just plain stupid. This gym has everything you would need and highly trained workers who are MORE than willing to assist you in ANY way shape or form. As for the owners, you WILL NOT meet nicer people. And I'm not just talking about inside the gym. I have ran into them outside the gym and they are the friendliest people who really and truely care about their members. Always a smile on their faces. If anything negative was overheard, it was mistaken. Try not jumping to conclusions and being so paranoid! Rather, go to the gym yourself and check it out. Ask to meet the owners if they are not already there. You will fall in love with these two the minute you meet them and nothing about that changes. This gym offers cycling classes, aerobics, yoga, pilates, tanning and so much more. Come on in and check it out for yourself. That is what I did 6 years ago and wouldn't go anywhere else. You don't have to take my word for it, check it out and then tell me how right I was!

Pros: has everything you need and then some

Cons: none

Gym equipment is old and falling apart, but the worst part is the staff, or should I say the owners who happen to be husband and wife.

Owners appear to be nice at first but after a few months you come to realize how arrogant and cocky they really are. Owners have no problem poking fun at someone behind their back or making nasty comments to other members.

I have personally witnessed several situations where they would laugh at someone who may have needed a little help. Once an older gentleman who did not know how to use a piece of equipment was laughed at by the woman owner when he was not looking. I have also heard negative comments made about a slightly overweight woman on a treadmill by both owners.

I have even heard of the owners discontinuing someones membership due to his sweat apparently having to foul of an odor to their liking.

They complain about everything under the sun and have no problem embarrassing you while letting you know.

If you like to work out hard and sweat or if your new to fitness and maybe not in the best shape this is not the place for you. I repeat, this is not the place for you unless you like to be made fun of. Owners have no problem taking you money but prefer that you did not work out to hard or you arrived looking pretty, handsome, and fit.

Take my advice and travel up the road, only about 5 mins and join the local Buffalo Athletic Club where the staff are friendly, courteous , respectful and helpful. They will even say hello and goodbye to you.

When shopping for a gym, just say NO to the Ultimate "Let Down".
