PRO Sports Club is my home away from home. Their entire facility is spectacular and the spa reminds me of the Bellagio. Being a huge sports fan, the coolest thing to me is that they have the former Sonics basketball court. I haven't gotten into squash yet (my dad plays it religiously), however, the tennis courts are top notch.
They offer a ton of services, many of which I don't use frequently, but are nice to have when you do need them. I can't say anything personally about their 20/20 program but I have heard good things about it from other members.
Family fun nights are crazy! And I mean crazy fun... I've never seen so many kids having a wonderful time all together than family fun night at the PRO Club. I'm always a little jealous I never had that growing up.
To wrap it up, I highly recommend PRO Sports Club to anyone who enjoys a nice, safe place to exercise, relax and take the kids. With so much to offer, you can't go wrong.
Were it not for an empassioned email from Dr. Mark urging me to support Pro Club that I received today, I wouldn't be writing this negative review.
That email represents the first thing wrong with Pro Sports Club. It doesn't respect the wishes of its former clients. After I cancelled my membership, I requested numerous times to be removed from the club's general and 20/20 Alumni newsletters. I still receive emails that are automatically deleted.
Next the club. If it weren't for my company's benefits, I would never had joined. It's pretty and expansive. Too bad a lot of the staff were just snotty and rude. Excuse me you're the one handing me the towel and you're acting like you are better than me. Really? Whatever. The fact that you have to pay for some classes like TRX on top of what the club is already getting paid is ridiculous. And the tennis fees are insane.
And finally the 20/20 program. The general attitude that I got from the four dietitians I had was "Success is because of the program, but any set backs are the individual's fault." None of the dietitians were willing to spend the time to work out meal plans with me. The only good thing of the program was the trainer, but without a solid basis in the dietary aspects too bad. Not only did I gain back what I lost on the 20/20 program, I gained more.
I'm happy to say that I have lost all that weight on Weight Watchers Online. It's a lot more reasonably priced than 20/20 and more realistic and sustainable.
I have been going to the ProClub for almost a year. I started when I began the 20/20 lifestyles program -so I am there pretty much every day. Let me start off by saying WOW I love this place. From the moment I walk in Roxanne at the front desk says good morning to me -and my 2&5 year olds by name. My hands are typically full of backpacks, lunch boxes, diaper bags and workout bag so she doesn't even make me hunt for my key fob..Roxanne goes the extra mile of checking me in as I come in.
Then, there is childcare -Discovery Bay. Both my kids are greeted by name and everyone is smiling. This is a feat considering they work long hours and have a ton of kids going through there each day. This momma can sometimes be scatter brained -when I forget to take care of my RSVP's Maria & Eilleen always help out. Like I said, we spend a lot of time there and it is nice to see them every morning. When I bring the kiddos back to their rooms they are always greeted warmly. Linda & Teresa know Maggie so well..she goes right to them. They have watched her grow up a lot and hit tons of milestones as she goes from 1-2. Maggie will miss them when she moves to the 2 yo room but she will be well taken care of in that room too! My son loves his buds in the 5 yo room! Vanessa and Trevor are always great with him and he loves to see them. The time my kids spent in Discovery Bay is not just wasted 'child care' only. They have music class, circle time and art projects. My son takes swim lessons each week and they make sure he is all set by bringing him to and from the lesson.
I was first intimidated by the size of the ProClub but as time went on I got into a routine and got used to it. The trainers are amazing. My first trainer, Shaun Neil helped me melt 60 lbs off my body and made me feel confident and strong. He is amazing. When he left for Ranger School my second trainer James Louthon stepped in. Again, amazing trainer. He knows his stuff and is always working to improve his knowledge. For example..he just finished his kettle bell certification. Even now that we aren't working together he checks in on me to say hi and hear about how my training plans are going.
This is an amazing program that changed my family's life. Yes it is expensive..but so is eating out 8 times a week and healthcare for metabolic disorders. Just saying. Fox at the front desk is always happy to help. Juliana makes me laugh -a great attribute considering she is the person who draws blood for the pre and post program testing. My nutritionist Julie Tredway..well she was the other half of the team that gave me what I need to lose all the weight.
I always feel welcome at the ProClub -from walking in, to the locker room attendants, to the trainers. If you are looking for great classes..you have to check out Janelle's TRX and spin classes..she is amazing, friendly, approachable and incredibly talented. The circuit training class is almost as good as having a personal trainer!
So, as you can tell I'm a fan. There is so much to love. If you do run into a problem..don't whine-reach out to the club. They will work to fix it. That is a sign of true customer service!
Excellent Club! – I can not believe all the whiners posting about how bad the service is, how badly they were treated, how it's a sub par facility, blah, blah, blah. You people really need to check yourselves! You sound like a bunch of spoiled rotten primadonnas. This is one of the most beautiful health clubs I've ever seen and if you're fortunate enough to have the ability to be a member, work out there or set foot in the entry way, you have a lot to be grateful for. I've been a member for over 10 years and have never had an issue with service, being treated poorly or anything close to it. This facility is operated close to perfection. Anyone bitching about this facility should take an inventory of their lives and recognize how good they have it. If you feel you're so special you need to be treated like royalty and you can't accept that mistakes happen sometimes, then your problem is with yourself, not the club.
Incredible Facility with Tennis – I've lived all over and this is one of the best fitness clubs I have belonged to. Very pricey though.
I tried a new one in downtown Bellevue when my office moved but ended up coming back to this one because it just had more options and was a better all-round facility. It's also important to note that most places in Washington don't have tennis courts but this one does.
Tennis At The PRO Sports Club Rocks – I love playing tennis at the PRO Sports Club. My friend who is a member, has taken me a few times. The facilities are clean; in fact, the entire club is gorgeous. I always walk by the basketball courts, the fitness room and the yoga studio on my way to the tennis courts. If I lived in Bellevue, I would definitely join.
Clean, but expensive... – OK. I try to stay away from fitness clubs as much as possible, but a friend took me here and I gotta say that they take their sanitation seriously. I see people swabbing places down with sanitizers and bleach. So I'm pretty impressed with that... Otherwise it's kind of crowded... especially the pool and as I said... pricey. But if you're a clean freak, this is the best place I've ever seen.
Best Weight Loss Program in Seattle – Seattle's best service at any club/spa, and the only one led by doctors. Nutritionists, physical therapists, personal trainers, gourmet nutritious food to go, protein shakes made to order, a great place to purchase gym apparel and spa are all rolled into one here. Seriously, if you can't lose weight here, well, you WILL lose weight here. :)
There should be negative stars for customer service – Man are these people full of themselves. You would think that giving them your hard earned money (especially since you give a lot of it!) would ensure some nice treatment.
NOT THIS CLUB BUDDY!
The staff here are super condescending, with their fake smiles and rude tones.
The instructors are nice but in general unhelpful unless you get private sessions with them.
Yes there are many classes, but you have to pay for most of them! Am I not paying enough for my gym membership already??! Do you really need to gyp me some more?
Ofcourse what you will get is a lot of equipment and a really fancy intimidating place. All in all its a nicely done up, pretty place with very very little warmth.
Best personal training! – I was very intimidated at first to go to the proclub. As soon as I began my training regime, I immediately felt very comfortable. Soon after, the staff began to know me and call me by my first name I can see myself coming to this gym for years to come.
