New Amazing Gym – I recently rejoined the gym. After all the comments its very understandable where they come from but seriously..u need to come back and see the new facility HOLY SCHMOKES! u wont even believe its the same place! The new manager has been there since august and he has done a fabulous job making the gym look awesome and hiring new staff. theyre super friendly helpful and care a lot about their members. i would never even consider going to another gym like x-sport with all their stuck up staff that when u ask for anything just ignore u or even walk away and where u have to wait an hour for a treadmill. another plus on top of their AMAZING deals, awesome staff, is the no wait for equipment EVER they just recently updated theirs and added new ones if u havent seen it go! I GUARANTEE you will want to join the second u come in
get it right! – i agree with the person below.. the gym has improved alot since that manager left!! AL R.. world gym is a place to work out to sweat ur butt off. if you just wanna talk around and meet people xsport is right around the corner only problem is .. you have to wait in line to use certain equipment and some people apparently think they own the gym!! i just renewed my membership i couldnt be happier..
im paying 28 dollars!!! well they drop it down after two years. but still this gym has evrything you need plus managment is awsome! this guys do take care of you!! one on one! they wont be on some bs like talk to this guy then get back to me!! true this place is not as new as xsport or midtown but its affordable and best of all!! they have boxing classes included!!!!!!! haha
hope ya'll have a great day :)
alfonse ruiz – been reading about al ruiz and all his shady ways! became aquainted with alfonse thru a friend. he talked me into a "can't miss" business deal, where he preceeded to steal $15,000 dollars of my hard earned money. everything being said about him is true. he's a smooth talking shyster, and 100% full of the devil!!!!
dirty and manager is not nice – *This place is dirty and they NEVER sanitize the machines.
*there is no spray to whipe them down after you are done working out.
*the treadmills always say "maintenance".
*they haven't had any racquetballs for over a month.
*there is never a personal trainer to help me.
*i pay extra to take boxing and was told (by AL RUIZ) i would be provided gloves; this is not true.
*manager AL RUIZ 'shushed' me and called me a 'whitey' when i inquired about cancelling my contract
*they will not let me cancel even though the place is unsanitary and the manager was extremely rude to me
*AL RUIZ lied to me about the contract and i'm looking into hiring an attorney based on misrepresentation and fraud
One of the biggest fitness franchises caters to more than just bodybuilders. – The Scene
The company logo is a muscle-bound gorilla deadlifting a heavily loaded barbell, but World Gym's focus goes beyond just weights to include a number of fitness options. Joe Gold's first Southern California muscle mecca--the second being the eponymous Gold's--has spawned hundreds of neighborhood gyms everywhere, from Mentor, Ohio, to Taichung, Taiwan. Design and amenities vary from franchise to franchise to reflect the owner and the community as much as, if not more than, the original location.
All World Gym fitness centers are required to be at least 9,500 square feet. That means ample room for free weights, medicine balls, treadmills and sundry machines; classes in Spinning, yoga and the like fill out the group-oriented fare.
