Watch out for these scam artists. I was under the impression that after one month I would tell them if i wanted to stay with their crappy gym. I did call and said i wouldn't. Three years later I find on a credit report that I owe them 1326 dollars. There are a million other better gyms that also dont put you on such insane contracts. Use planet fitness, the ymca or anything else. Ballys is just ridiculously awful. this site won't let me put less thaan 4 stars, don't be fooled

The salespeople will convince you that cancelling is easy, it is nearly impossible. Google "cancel Bally's" and you will see. They don't tell you that you really creating a credit account and they "loan" you the cost for 3 years up front. Therefore if you try to stop paying they will go after your credit rating. Buyer beware.

I have been a member at Ballys in carousel for 4 years. there are some really good things, I think the classes are amazing, they really try to have a good variety. I have lost over 40 pounds doing the classes! They also have some good trainers. There are many bad things however:the machines are sooo dated, the gym is sweltering in the summer, every year since I have joined they claim the air conditioner is broke! In the summer I only do classes because it is so hot on the cardio machines! Also the gym is disgusting, I once actually witnessed one of the workers pouring water into the cleaning bottles and then set it out for people to use to clean the machines! And finally the "help" staff are mainly kids in highschool who are rude, I once asked when/if we are going to receive air conditioning in the nicest way possible and this little girl looked at me and said "ugh everyone is asking, we will get it when we get it!". So all in all if it werent for the classes and trainers, and convenient location, I would not be there.

I've been to one of the Bally fitness centers in E. Syracuse, but last time I visited the center had closed. I'm not familiar with the area as yet. Is there a new Bally's located in E. Syracuse? The new one in the mall is too far for me to drive. I'm relocating in July and will be living in E. Syracuse. Hey, I just read further into the reviews. Someone mentioned the Dewitt location and remodeling/reconstruction. Thank you. I hope to see more smiling faces next time I visit.

Please do not join Bally's. If you sign a contract and ever want to get out of it because you moved you will have the hardest time doing so. What they won't tell you when you sign up is that there will be a cancellation fee even if you do move away. Secondly if you move away and there is a Bally's near by to your new home they will not let you cancel and will continue to bill you. They will not tell you this when you sign up because they are just after your money. The classes at Bally's in Carosel are horrible. The cardio machines are dated. If you do sign up send your lady friend to get your membership because they will give better deals to woman then they do guys. This place is not worth signing up for. Look for a more locally owned buisness if I were you.

I have to say as far as gyms go, Bally's in Carousel has everything you want, good offering for classes, open machines when you want them.

There is one HUGE exception to this place--during the holidays it is a nightmare to try and find a parking spot. Sometimes in the evening it takes a little extra effort as well. Not a good thing when you are trying to find the inspiration to go the gym as it is.

The Syracuse franchise of Bally Total Fitness has three area clubs - DeWitt, Carousel Centre, and Fairmount. The DeWitt club has recently undergone extensive renovations and has installed new fitness equipment and revved up the aerobics program.

None of the Syracuse area Ballys have swimming pools but otherwise, these clubs offer a full compliment of floor aerobics and other group activities. On site personal training is available, as is day care.
