Great place to work out! Great cardio room! Nice running track! Staff is A+!! Professionally managed, which to me means, very little bs tolerated that could steer you away from a gym. I have been there 9-months after about 17 years out of a gym and have lost a little over 40lbs!!

Join!! You will not be disappointed!!

I have been a member of Jackson Sport and Fitness for about a year. The employees there have been very nice and always willing to help out people that are "Rookies." When I signed my spouse and me up the manager was very helpful in making me understand the contract terms and conditions. They have excellent trainers also, I have lost over 40 pounds since I have been a member there, and I feel like a new person. I would tell all the people that are thinking about joining a gym, that Jackson Sport and Fitness is the place to be.

I am the GM of this business and have been here for the full 5 years we have been open. Previous negative posts about contracts are grossly uninformed. There always have been one and two year membership options. The only members who are month to month have finished their initial contract term. Our membership dues are at the norm for this region. How else would we be the largest health club in West Tennessee with over 6,000 members? I guess with that many members there is the possibility that some do not understand everything. All possible members are explained the contract terms before they sign up and can take the contract home before they sign it. Those with questions can walk into my office any time of the day for any reason. I have an open door policy. Check out our club for yourself and see the truth !

I have been using this gym for years. Everyone is quite helpful in my journey to the perfect size. Each employee is smiling and giving new ideas and encouragement to the members. The manager is alway eager to smile and wish me a good morning. He has been very helpful in creating a family contract for us. I have nothing negative to say! Only good things! We will stay with Jackson Sports and Fitness. I know when I'm there I can get down to business. There are no "clicky groups" that stand around for social hour. It is an atmosphere of people who are there to get and stay healthy!

I am very unhappy with this place. I signed up for a 18 month contract May 2007 but 2 weeks into it my mother, who had bone cancer, had broken her hip. I was the primary care giver and I could not go to the gym. I asked if I could cancel my contract and was given a number to call and a web site. It turns out the gym gives their contracts to another company to control. I had to fill out paperwork and send it in stating my reasons for wanting to cancel. When I did this they let me know that unless I was the one sick or had moved out of state that was not reason to cancel. My doctor even wrote out a written statement asking them to put my membership on hold because I could not go. They still would not comply. So, for a year they have been taking 29.00 out of my account even though I was not able to be there. These people have no compassion. The moral of this is do not sign a contract for long term because if something happens in your close family (children, spouse, or parents) you can forget it. Kiss your money goodbye.

GM There is no such thing as an 18 month contract and never has been. We can freeze your membership for any family emergency. Feel free to contact me any time.

This is a great gym! It's a Saturday afternoon and the crowd is there to workout. It is not the meat market, so often seen at more "mainstream" gym's and so-called fitness centers. People actually sweat here.
The equipment is in great condition and is top of the line. The spacing between equipment is enough to minimize congestion and interference. There is enough redundancy that you are not left waiting for equipment between your sets. Aerobics room, 25m lap pool, full basketball court and kids room are all features that will bring in a diverse and active client base.
It doesn't push the standard growth/weight/strength/pill/vitamin combinations of other gyms. Reading a previous review, it sounds like someone had a bad experience there. I don't want to arm-chair quarterback that experience, but will say that the staff was helpful, courteous and well-spoken. The answer to that reviewer's issues may be reflected in their own mirror.

My wife signed up to use the Gym and they told her they only had a 2 year membership. They also charged her $59 a month. The minimum length of the contract was false. They have shorter terms and month to month. They also are only charging $20.00 a month for a two year contract, they saw her coming and took full advantage. I have repeatedly tried to resolve this with them and they are totally unreasonable. My next step is the Better Business Bureau. We would never recommend a place that rips people off.

GM Please get your info first hand and correct. A family membership is $59. An individual is $20 if you pays 2 years in advance. It has been this way since the doors opened 5 years ago and all prices are available in print at our facility.

Actually the name of this place is "Jackson Sports and Fitness." And, it is THE place to work out in Jackson. At 5:00 AM, the guy that works the front desk is actually awake... which is more than I can say for myself, even though I do walk through the doors a few minutes later and try to get my heart going on a elliptical trainer.

The gym has a full line of cardio equipment, weight equipment, an outdoor pool, locker rooms, aerobic classes, a basketball court, raquetball court, ...I am sure I have left something out as I only use the cardio equipment and the weight equipment. I had a weight equipemtn orientation a couple of weeks ago. It was very informative and I felt that the instructor wanted to make sure that I used proper form when I was lifting weights. I also like to walk on the track that overlooks the weight area...
