I had a similar experience to C.E. They continued to bill me for hundreds of dollars even after I moved and sent in my cancellation notice. I will not give an opinion on the gym itself, but thus far their business practices have proven horrific. I hope they do the right thing, but so far they have proven utterly inflexible.
I wouldn't recommend Idaho Athletic Club, Their gyms are dirty, their rates are too high and their owners are greedy! Keep you money and go somewhere!
Before I go to the gym, I look at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful and in shape I am in. And after I walk through the door at the gym, I realize how still out of shape I am.
Thanks IAC!! =)
I like their steam room with eucalyptus aroma. Burns my lungs. Also, as tempting it is to pee while in the shower here, I don't. So I really, really hope everyone else has the same common courtesy to do likewise.
Salesmen: Friendly (don't care if they're crooks because if you agree to something, honor it)
Equipment: There's a lot and they're constantly cleaned and maintained
Lockers: Bring your own lock and they're a decent size
Noise: Thankfully not too much grunting or moaning, whereas other places you close your eyes and you feel like you're in the middle of some gay orgy.
Great Customer Service! Very Helpful!
Great Company and great atmosphere! No complainants what so ever. I highly recommend this business to my friends and family. With plenty of locations, I always find my way there! A place I can shed the pounds and maintain a healthier lifestyle. I frequent the State st. location. They have everything I need and so much more! Thanks IAC for everything!! <3
I absolutely love IAC! I have been a member since 2006 and have been nothing but satisfied! I have been to every single club, and enjoy different aspects off all of them. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help!
I love the fact that there are so many clubs! I live in Caldwell, so use both the Caldwell and Nampa clubs. I work in Meridian, so I use that one before or after work sometimes. My parents live in Eagle, so, sometimes I just drop in there to get a quick workout in before I head to the family chaos. This is the only athletic facility in the valley where you can use all of the clubs.
Those that post comments about cancellation policies obviously have never signed any contract of any kind, that they tried to cancel! Of course there are going to be hoops to go through! Can you just cancel your 2 year cable policy? Nope! Come on people!
I highly recommend IAC!
CLEAN. This place is spotless. Ok.. full disclosure. I workout in the morning. So.. usually, it's emptier and everything is organized for the day. It does get a little crazy around rush hour (5pm-7pm) but that's expected at any gym. You will see the staff wiping down equipment and vacuuming. They always seem to keep things spotless.
EQUIPMENT. High end and high quality. Using great equipment is huge when working out. You don't need to question if the equipment will work for you. All the weights are pristine as well as the machines. Love the treadmills with personal flat screens.
POOL/SPA/SAUNA. If you workout in the mornings.. it's like you're own personal SPA day here. I run, hit the weights, jump in the pool, then the hot tub.. and if I still need that extra pampering.. i hit the Sauna. Seriously relaxing.
The NEGATIVES: This is a gym.. it's a full functioning business.. without the salesman, they cannot function. Deal with it. I was fortunate enough to join IAC when they first opened and I locked in a pretty good rate. Every gym needs to sell.. Hopefully you get a great salesman like I had.
Customer service has been ok. Can't really critic that since once I'm at the gym.. I don't talk to anybody unless I have to. But everyone has been cool to me.
I concur with comment on this page: Don't get a membership at IAC, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE KIDS. Their daycare service, especially at the Meridian location is managed horribly. The Meridian Daycare Manager,
Kathy, is consistently rude to members, her staff, and the children she supervises. She is a common joke among mothers who utilize the daycare for being a rude, unhappy person who seems bound and determined to make all those around her feel the same. When we have, at various times, complained to management or the front desk staff about her behavior, we are all told that they know there is a problem, but can't do anything about it. I'm cancelling my membership because I don't feel comfortable leaving my children to be cared for by such a person. I'm not taking my business to a gym that so obviously disregards the feelings of the members. It says a lot about how poorly the entire company is managed. Take my advice, take your business elsewhere.
Horrible! – I had a two year membership that I wished would just end! Despite the contract saying that I could cancel my membership if I moved, they would not cancel! I had to pay membership fees from my new home in Taiwan!
They also would not let me pay the $75 cancellation fee. I went straight for my copy of the contract, which unfortunately I left in storage at my parents home. They don't get around too well and they couldn't find the document. Thus my hands were tied. Disgusting rip-off. They would not even accept my Alien Residence Card as proof of living in another country. They just wanted their money. It's so sad because I did enjoy going there every morning before I moved.
Warning: The copy of the contract they had had 48 months written in (in pen not typed) which had not been there when I signed the contract. They added it later, but it's not worth the plane ticket home to rummage through my stuff and prove it.
Only care about the $ – Requested a hold on the membership through the winter in person at the desk. The attending individual said it was ok and to come in when I wanted to get it going again. My automatic withdrawls were stopped, no by me, so some paperwork must have been done. No contact from them for months even though my phone number was on fil. Then I received a post card asking me to call Anthony. Tried calling numerous times with no success or call back. Finally went in to get the membership going again and was told there were huge late fees and penalties for not paying.
When I told them about the hold they acted stupid, I'm assuming it was an act, and said that was not thier policy. They refered me to Anthony again and finally got in contact with him. He was an absolutely rude person and was not going to give me any credit and discredited the story.
None of the workers at these place have any training and can't answer a single question. The worker refers me to the manager, who then refers me to the GM who in turn says, "Call Anthony".
DO NOT EVER USE THIS GYM! They only care about money and will lie and cheat to get it.
Lack of respect for clients – Idaho Athletic Club has made it clear that they are in it only for the money. While their personal training program can be effective and has been for me, the management of the program is careless. They assume that trainers are like underwear and can be changed on a whim. They give no consideration to the relationships people form with their trainer in reaching their goals. Do not sign up for their trainer program. Find a trainer on your own and if you need the equipment they have just have the trainer come with you as a workout buddy. Better yet, find another gym that values their customers.
