Mold, mildew all over showers. Locker room carpet disgusting. Management and owner are all about the bottom line .... profits and not doing what is best for customers. If you are training for triathlons and need a pool to train in, go elsewhere. The senior classes rule the pool unless you're able to work out extremely early or late in the day.

My children love lakeshore athletic club and improvements have been made since Nicole left. With the exception of one, my kids have bonded with all of the wonderful afternoon girls. Namely Kaylie, Taylor and Megan. I know that my kids are safe everytime I leave them there, and no one should believe any of the bad remarks. :)

I agree about the new Director Corrie. She is so awesome! I have two children that both visit the play room frequently, and they love it! they know the teachers by name and get excited everytime they come in. All of the teachers are wonderful. Morning and Afternoon gals both:) Lakeshore definitally has the best playroom in Vancouver.

NEWS!!! NEWS!!! NEWS!!! NEWS!!! NEWS!!!

The play area has a new manager!!!! And she is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Corrie has only been the manager for a little bit, but things are already different. AMAZING!!!! It is such a relaxed area now. I can't even tell you how better the Play Area is. I really believe that all the bad stuff was because of the old manager. And to be honest the Asst. Manager, she is still there, but seems happier too. Corrie, Lisa, Jackie, Karen, Myraha, Alisa and Linsey are truly special ladies. These Mom's love the kids like they are their own.

BTW: My name really isn't Jazzy! duh!

I have been working out at LSAC on and off since 1992. My husband is still a member so I do drop in once a month or so. I cancelled my membership due to the cost for what you get and the condition of the facility and the day care. I work at a rival facility and know most of the "senior" staff since we have often trained together so I was shocked at my last visit when my husband asked a customer service rep (lady) to go see if I was in the locker room. He wanted to leave earlier than we had agreed. I was in the sauna and never heard her come in, I was also with another lady and she also did not ever see or her the CSR. After waiting 15 minutes my husband figured I went jogging out side and left a message for me at the front desk. I came out at the regular time I thought I was to meet my husband and waited in the lobby. The lady later said my husband left and I thought maybe there was an emergency. She saw me call around to find out what was going on and to get a ride home since I had a large gym bag with me I did not want to attempt to jog home. She never gave me the message my husband left with her or that she was asked to look for me earlier. When my husband came back 20 minutes later to see if I was there he told me the lady went into the locker room 2x's to get me. I told him then she never went to the spa, bathroom, and sauna area because I was in there. What if I was passed out or drowned? I would have been left for dead. I would not recommend them due to the safety factor.

I love Lake Shore Athletic Club! The people are so nice and friendly. The Conditioning room staff are always available to help you, the front desk always greets me with a smile, and the Membership Services department is great. I have read the other comments. I do not believe any off the comments that are nasty. I highly recommend this wonderful athletic club!

We signed-up our entire family and our Nanny (friend). So far we have had only positive personal experiences. We received a 50% discount on our initiation, and it was by word of mouth that we heard about the discount. I would recommend L.S. to any family that I know. It is the best money we spent all summer; it is a fantastic place.

I've been a member of several clubs in the past 10 years. Without a doubt, this is the friendliest club there is. There is none of the snottyness (if that is a word) that several of the chain clubs have - I don't get any looks just because I have another 20 pounds to lose. My kids also LOVE the play area - I've never seen or heard of any child being hurt, and the workers are awesome...

I have grown up at lake shore the school and the club. i know that the staff in the play area keeps an eye out for the behavior that everyone has "reported". it could have been your child to cause the biting or hitting. some children have caused then turned around and said that it was in fact not their fault. and i assure you children are punished by a time out if this happens.
the weight and workout room are cleaned at least 3 times a day. i have never heard of staff calling children anything rude. where ever you went is in fact not my club.

I am very disappointed in Lakeshore Athletic Club. We discontinued our membership in the Winter of 2008 and they keep sending us bills even though we don't go there anymore. We cancelled the membership because of the old smell of mold and disgusting carpet odor. A member in our family used the hot tub once and never again because he developed a skin sore after he used it. Everytime I went in to dispute their bills after we no longer attended, they said that the accounting department wasn't open and no one could verify anything. They also never posted their hours and we found that they were closed at times that we wanted to work out. Don't let their improper accounts department wreck your credit history. Don't go to Lakeshore - they are not considerate to the member.

My family also won't leave our children in the play area. I've seen all the things the other reviewers have seen. My daughter came home with a bite. Nothing was done to the child whom bite her. It was a supervisors child.

Baaaaad daycare. I've seen employees kids bite others, climb on things, jump off things, lay in the cribs (were not babies) etc. They are out of control and they don't get in trouble. I don't leave my children there anymore.

I am a disabled person who through my insurance was able to qualify for a program called silver sneakers back a few years ago. This program would pay for my joining of this health club and help me with classes to improve my health. When I went into Lake Shore to check the place out I was greeted at the front desk by a young women who was less than pleasant. I had my 9 year old nephew with me and he even picked up on her rudeness. I tried to ask questions but she was to busy to help me. Finally I got mad and said that I wanted to talk to someone else, someone who wasn't too busy to answer my questions. This kid then says to me, "well for trailer trash like you we're always going to be busy." then she and a group of "members" who were standing there all started to laugh. My nephew, bless him, said out loud "You're a mean women and I don't like you." That employee then looked down and said, and I quote "You're a little troll poor boy who doesn't matter." I lost it. I called that girl every name in the book and demanded to speak with her boss. She called VPD on me. (Or acted as if she had.) I waited in their parking lot for 20 minutes, no cops. I called my health care provider and told them about what had happened. They said that they have had other complaints about Lake Shore from other members. They recommended I go elsewhere in the network. Lake Shore, what a joke.

I love lake shore! I am a single parent of a 4 year old. We've always received great care in the play area. My son loves it! He cries when it is time to go home! I joined with the 50% off coupon that I saw in the paper. My friend didn't have one and when I asked the front desk they said it was no problem and to send my friend in. They didn't haven't any problems with the coupon. Hmmm. Some people aren't happy unless they have something to complain about, because I have never experience any of the problems others have mentioned here. I love the staff, instructors and programs at Lake Shore and I recommend it whole heartedly!

OOH MY GOODNESS, WHAT A JOKE !!!! I just spoke with the front desk at Lake Shore Athletic Club to get information about joining. I was excited about joining a local club in my community, so I chose Lake Shore. When I found out about the initiation fee of $150 I was not taken back but I did ask about any specials or discounts they were offering. This is where it gets fun....they told me they were running a special of 50 % off but could not tell me where the coupon was being advertised. When I asked why they said it was a special and that the coupon was out there ??? I asked again, where would I see this coupon ?? and again she said she could not tell me because it was my responsibility to find it??? I asked to speak to someone else that would maybe give me some help and she would not allow me to speak to anyone but took my mane and number and would have someone call. Well someone did call me back and gave me the same story ....After I mentioned that I was one of the many people out in this community trying to be wise with what money I do have and would like join a club and save some money she finally said that there was no special at this time but maybe in the future. ONCE AGAIN I asked WHERE would I find this COUPON and she reluctantly said the Colombian. I don't subscribe to the Colombian. WHAT A JOKE . Hey Lake Shore, I have an idea ....Customer's come first in business NOT WAY AT THE BOTTOM.

I just have to respond to some of the negative comments in regards to the same club I attend six days per week.

I absolutely love Lake Shore. From the front desk people to the folks in the weight room. I have been treated with nothing but respect and if I had any questions or concerns, generally a call was made within 24 hours.

I am so sorry that others feel differently, but for me and my family, Lake Shore is the place to stay fit, have a good time and meet some wonderful local people. Some I might add have become true friends.

These people complaining must be from another planet, because I have NEVER experienced any of the rudeness or problems that they are talking about. My family and I have been members forever. My kids love the play area, we've never had any problems with other children.

Whenever we have had questions about our bill, the staff at the desk and in the billing office have been great - they were very accommodating.

It sounds like sour grapes to me.

I have been a member here for over 7 years...ever since moving here from Idaho. When I read the reviews below I felt I had to respond. The staff has been nothing but courteous and professional in all my experiences. I genuinely like these folks. I see them almost everyday and they always greet me with a smile.

I think I know the lady who wrote the dig against the play area. She just left the club (good). If I'm right...her kid was the one who caused the problems. But you know how that goes..."It couldn't possible be my kid".

Regardless of what these disgruntled members claim...I'll be a member here for years.

I finally had to drop my membership because of consistant rude service. Seems like employees are more interested in getting to know one another then helping customers. I stopped using the supervised play area 4 months earlier because by 2-year-old kept getting severely injured: black eye and severe biting that resulted in bleeding. These attacks on my child was by an employees' child and therefore nothing was done about it.

What did my 2-year-old son do to get bitten repeatedly? Why was he the only one with severe injuries? Are other reviewers claiming that it is his fault he kept getting beaten? Why am I now being attacked for sharing my opinion on a public forum? Please take this into account before you ever consider joining this club. I do not know Jenny J., I guess she didn't read that I left 4 months ago. Why the random attack, Jenny J.?

Do you want to be at a club that is so hostile?

This is exactly why I discontinued going to Lake Shore, ask for help and the staff looks at you like you are an idiot. Maybe they are nicer after you've been going for a long time and know you but for us new people, no thanks, I can give my money to a club that will be friendly and helpful on the same day.

It is very very kid friendly. They have an indoor play area/daycare you can take the kidds to while you work out, as well as planned free activities. They have free 30 minute kids play sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. They have different themes, so it's always interesting. One day, they had a petting zoo....people brought in animals and the kids had so much fun! They also have swim lessons for a fee, but open swim is free during certain hours. They just repainted all of the pools this year. We are going to try the swim lessons there in the spring. The gym has an indoor and outdoor pool. In the summer, we were there almost everyday. They have a pretty large kiddie pool outside.

The only issue I have is sometimes parking can be an issue, but the school next door opens their lot to share during peak times. The good news is even when the parking lot is full, the gym has never felt crowded and I've never had to wait for anything.

The Lake Shore Athletic Club is a fantastic club. It has excellent friendly staff and many amenities for families and the elderly.

The outdoor pool with its slide is wonderful during the summer. They have a kids changing room and an adult changing room to minimize the messes of kids.

The weight room is medium sized and has all the equipment that you could want.

They have racquetball, tennis, an indoor gold practice cage, and two baskettball courts. They also have a sauna and a hot tub in each of the changing rooms.

Part of the membership fees include free access to classes for pilates, yoga, tai-chi, weight training, aqua-aerobics, etc. Many of the classes have senior fit versions to encourage activity for older members. Swimming classes, martial arts, and tennis classes are an additional fee.

Regarding professionalism of the staff as well as billing, I have always had a great relationship with them. Any issues have been quickly dealt with through the front desk.

I am canceling my membership because the staff especially the Membership Services is very rude, have limited office timing, and will not respond for months to settle any billing disputes.

I cancelled a two month extended family membership in fall and they kept sending me bills for the family membership. My basic membership dues are paid on time every month through an automated bank payment.
They have not responded to my 10 months of messages and faxes and sent me to a letter threatening me to send my account to a collection agency.
They are forcing me to pay the 20.00 difference and charging exorbitant late fees and service fees .. what for? They are never there to give any services!! They are never available on phone. I cannot travel during morning office hours to talk to them in person. They never respond. They leave by 12 noon. They do not have the decency to be available at least during lunch hour once a week if not for one afternoon a month.

I feel they do this on purpose so they can keep charging members late fees. Most unfriendly service and timing.
They are just swindling our money.

When kids summer lessons get cancelled they never call to inform us about it, nor do they give any credit without us asking for it.

So, if all you want to do is work out, swim, or take a class, this is your place. If you are looking for the 'meat market' club, and need flex your muscles or be on parade...keep looking! Lakeshore is a great and safe feeling family club. Yes, the decor is a little dated (a few posters showing fine athletes from the 80's), but the owners do a fantastic job of keeping the equipment current, offering a ton of classes, and bringing in good instructors for clinics. We are in the middle, but there's tons for the little ones, the middle kids, and seniors. I love how friendly the staff is when we come in...it's all very low key and not a bit pretentious or intimidating.

Pros: nice neighborhood club

Cons: no spinning classes

I have belonged to several clubs in my life. This one is by far the best. The staff is fantastic, everything is kept clean and working. There is a good mix of ages at the club. There are more activities than any other place in town. Also, I have never had a problem getting on machines when I want to.

I could't efford to be a member any longer, so I chose not to renew my membership. Well in the contract it auto renews, I suppose thats why Im not a laywer. To make a long story they sent me to collections for 516 dollars... Five months of membership dues that I didn't use. I suppose its like the "family" they are nice to you until you want to leave. Then they make it difficult. If you have a complaint talk to member services, thats Monday through Friday 8am-noon. That makes it real easy! To drop your membership you have to go there in person. You don't need to talk to member services I found out, you can tell anyone at the desk. A week latter a collection agent will call you. I can almost swear that I said I was dropping my membership the last day I was there, but that was six months ago now. That is my experience with Lake Shore Athletic Club. I hope yours is a better one.

Pros: Close to my residence

Cons: They have a horrible policy about dropping your membership!

I have been a member of LASAC for about 16 years. Over the past six years or so, I have managed to go almost everyday. The staff has always been very polite and helpful. I cannot imagine anyone someone finding that these wonderful people are rude.

I do know that there are "cheaper" clubs in or area, but I am happy here and will most likely be a member for at least another 16 years!

I read the review about the rude staff and had to respond. I've been a member of Lake Shore for 5 years now and have never had a bad experience! I come here everyday around 6pm and am always greeted with a smile.

About the womens locker room...I asked my wife about this. She says it is great. In the last 5 years, it has been under construction twice and cold two other times. I've been a member of a few other clubs in my day...and this is nothing in comparison.

This club has everything. The whole family loves it.

Also,I can't wait until this summer and the outdoor pool. The kids can't get enough of the slide. I have a $7 dollar a day limit for their snack bar...or the kids would break me.

Been here for over 6 years. This place has it all. I play racquetball and basketball. The wife works out and does the whole class thing (they have 50+ per week - all included). The kids do their "Fit Kidz" program and play in the supervised play area. Come summer... we play tennis and hang out by the outdoor pool. We have to be this places least profitable members, we use it all the time.

It's not all roses...a couple things. The parking lot can get full during peak times. But honestly, that just means I have to walk 50 yards. I kid with my wife and say "this is just a warm up". The other thing is that age of the facility. It's been here for almost 50 years! But I will give it up. The owners are always adding and improving. It's kinda dorky, but I perfer to shop local..this place is a family owned and run gym.

Pros: All inclusive, no contracts, family friendly, great value

Cons: parking can be tight...but so what.

I was a member of LSAC for 13 years. I terminated my membership due to increasing staff rudeness over the last two years. Also the upkeep of the site facilities has gone down; while the dues have gone up. The women's spa is often out of order and minors are regularly found in areas where they are not allowed, possibly causing the recent upsurge in thefts from the ladies locker room. While this used to be a good club; I can no longer recommend it to anyone.

Lakeshore athletic club is a great club with lots of different things that they offer. They have an indoor pool and an outdoor pool which has a slide and a diving board. They have an indoor track. There is plenty of staff there who are all very helpful. They have machines you can work out on or they have free weights. There is also a gym to play raquet ball in or a gym for basketball. I have been a member at this club for a few years now and would recommend it to anyone looking to join a fitness club.

This is one of the best neighborhood clubs around. It's right in the middle of lakeshore/felida and is a great place. It's always very clean and the staff is super friendly. They have an indoor and outdoor pool, large exercise room w/ a cardio area, treadmill area, free weight area and machine area. There is also an indoor track, racquetball courts, basketball courts, gyms, tennis courts and indoor golf practice area. They have a kids daycare place but I have never used it. They offer many classes for all types and levels. It's a great place for all kinds of adult and family activities.
