Not only did they close down, leaving members in a lurch, the club was not well-maintained at all. The whirlpool smelled like a '
big stinky foot' and was actually cloudy. It had no pool at all. When it was still a 'Balli' franchise, it had a small but clean and usable pool for water aerobics and water walking. When it was 'Ultimate Fitness', there were long lines of people waiting to use the equipment and the members were responsible for cleaning and wiping down each piece after sweating all over it,which of course, was rarely done.

This gym is closed and took people's money when they did. Gold's Gym is the only gym that has ever made it in Appleton.

for those of you intelligent or experienced enough to work a universal, or who can understand pictures, this gym is fabulous. If you want some fake twit to hold your hand and tell you you aren't fat go somewhere else. New owners have cleaned the place up some, though exercise is often sweaty and dirty so who cares? And for those who whined endlessly of the sneaky auto withdraw af.er the contract expired...Gold's has the same policy, it's very common in this industry. Classes are included and fairly challenging too.

For all of you that are complaining about this gym...what do you expect its $99 for a years membership?! I think the gym is very well maintained for what you pay for. My experience with the staff has been satisfying. After less than a week of attending the gym they greeted me by my first name. I think the other gyms in the area are crazy for the amount they ask for per month/year! I'll take Ultimate Fitness over those other gyms any day!

Hello,my name is Mark Joosten.I"m the new owner of ULTIMATE FITNESS as of 12/1/07.I"m not completely sure what happened in your situation as i was not the owner at that time,but it sounds like an EFT (electronic funds transfer) issue.We no longer provide EFT as a payment option due to problems the previous owners had with that program.Going forward,starting the week of 12/10/07 we will begin a total renovation of the gym including: Painting,new carpet,flooring and redoing the locker rooms.We will also be adding additional treadmills and cardio equipment.We will focus on cleanliness,timely equipment repair and customer service for our members.We will be spending upwards of $ 100,000 on the renovation.Our members are VERY important to us at ULTIMATE FITNESS.We look forward to providing our members with a clean,safe,fun and energetic finess center at a reasonable price.We look forward to helping you with your fitness goals!! THANK YOU, MARK JOOSTEN

The equipment is in need of constant repair!!! Also the atmosphere is entirely geared to the "Muscle Heads" including the music they play. I had a membership for 2 yrs and not once did the owner even say hello to me, but the only time the owners acknowledge you is if you spend big bucks on personal training sessions with them. The membership fee's are great but don't let that fool, you get what you pay for. Also there are many issues with the automatic payment service used to extract your monthly dues out of your bank account. No return calls from anyone when you have issues. I would figure that with the owner being a former Combined Locks Police Officer as well as International Federation of Body Building card holder would be more personal as well as profesional. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!! Back to the YMCA.

Ultimate fitness is not acceptable! The gym is not acceptable , the machines are not acceptable, the service is not acceptable, and to top it all off Chris and his 80's wife are not acceptable and they ROB their members. Beware of the money scam going on. If you have a contract be sure to cancel or you will continue with a new contract. I have tried repeatedly to contact the owners with out any luck!!

Pros: parking

Cons: Everything other than parking

There is a reason the price is so low. Within 3 months of going, I was fed up with the stair masters and treadmill constantly in need of repair. I hurt myself on a weightlifting machine due to the fact it was in need of repair. I haven't been back and will be canceling my membership before they send me a bill because they automatically renew your membership.

The staff is a bunch of kids that don't have a clue about how the machines work. When I asked, the girl behind the counter said most have a sign by them. Half do. At the Y, someone goes out of their way to show you how to use a machine. Of course, the Y is too pricey. I'm resigned to save up for my own home equipment. The Ultimate Fitness needs to get their act together and keep their machines working properly. It is my greatest beef with them. 2nd is the fact they sneakily renew your membership if you don't tell them not to.

This place is a scam. They started manually taking money out of people's accounts instead of using an agency. They were set up wrong in their system, so the transaction didn't go through so they decided to use a credit collection agency against all these customers to get their money back instead of fixing the problem on their end. They didn't even try to call or send a letter saying that they were having a problem getting their money. I can't believe the stuff these businesses are allowed to get away with! DO NOT TRUST -- in time of need they can send you to a collection agency to get extra money out of you.

READ CONTRACT CAREFULLY. I was a victim of $100 scam. I stopped going to the gym 5 or 6 months prior to my contract expiration. My account was being handled by an electronic funds transfer for the monthly fee. After my year subscription, I neglected to inform them via certified letter, that I was done. Their contract states that if you don't cancel by mail, the agreement will continue for a month to month basis. Unaware I was still a member, I missed my next payment. 23 days after the missed payment (and without Ultimate Fitness' notification, I was informed that I owed $100 to a collection agency for cancellation of contract. I only had 24 hours to pay it. I was never notified that I owed this money prior to, and when I asked Ultimate Fitness, they claimed that "special firewall software installed by banks stopped payments from being processed" MORE CRAP. It appears I am not alone. Either Appleton has alot of people who want to screw businesses by not paying, Or Appleton has a business that's trying to screw the people. You Decide!!!! WATCH OUT FOR THIS SCAM......READ THE CONTRACT, DON"T BE A VICTIM OF THIS CRAP!!!

I was a member of Ultimate fitness and really missed it when I moved to the East Coast. The gym has so much to offer and I could get on the equipment easily. I have been at other gyms and had to always wait for the tread mills or ellipticals. The price is outstanding also.

The treadmills are "tired"; they will shut off unexpectedly and often. I have complained to no avail. The owner is not interested in returning a call.

PROS: clean
CONS: equipment in disrepair

I enjoy the gym. The staff is very helful and the price is the best in the city for what they offer. I think they need to incorporate classes on the weekends. Or more in the evening hours for those who work later hours.

I tried Ultimate Fitness as a trial one time. It was a decent gym, they had lots of equipment. Bikes, treadmills, weights, etc. They even had a suana and whirlpool which made it even better. They aren't priced too bad when compared to other gyms in the area.
