Great for Rehab.. – Great folks here, when I was in rehab a few years ago, atleast the "Girls" were. I had an injury to my R/knee and I found the Folks there were Extremely Friendly & very easy to work with. If I had difficulty doing an Excersice, (They were getting PAID to make me Suffer & Strain)
They wouldn't hollar or insult me. Although I would just refuse to do ANYTHING that hurt me. They would go along with it and move on to the next excersice..You should Definitely give them a visit. I plan on going over this Year,(2010) to work out on my own now that I am off the injury list. Need to keep the body strengthened up~~Very relaxing experience. All the Pools are Great.. * * * * *
Don't use for swimming if you are picky about the showers – I went there for swimming classes. The front desk, depending on who you get on the certain day/time can be either knowledgable or have no clue about the services offered. It is best to believe the advice of the actual trainer that you will be working with - if you seek training.
The swimming class was good - my trainer did meet with me for the full 1/2 hour that I paid for. I had a good time, but scheduling can be a bit tough b/c they will only schedule you if you had paid for a class.
The only downfall about this place at the Grant Avenue facility is the shower room. It seems to be a bit run down and the water from the next stall dribbles over into my shower which is not very pleasant while you are taking a shower and trying to clean yourself. If you don't mind just quickly rinising off and then driving home immediately to take a full shower (which is what I ended up doing), then everything else is tolerable/okay.
Editorial Review – Offers 40,000 square feet of workout space, cardiovascular equipment, aerobics and spinning rooms as well as saunas, whirlpools and steam-rooms.
A Must-See – There is a lot that is offered at the AFC. From the Olympic sized pool to the updated fitness center, there is always something to do. I have been working with one of their personal trainers and I have seem awesome results!! I always feel welcome here :)
The most awesome pool – The Aquatic and Fitness Center at Grant Avenue--
I've been a member here for about 5 years. I never thought water aerobics would be so much fun. They really make you feel at ease. I've never had a bad day here.
Greatest Pool I have ever seen! – You have to check this place out! It has the most amazing pool. It is bigger than the pool in the Olympics. they also have a giant therapy pool for classes, do swim lessons for my son, and an awesome gym. It was only $40 per month too. If you swim this is the only choice. Everythin is included in the membership too.
Bold-faced Liars! – Do not join this gym, unless you like being ripped off!
I was a member for 1 year, and when I signed the agreement, my contract stated "First & Last month free" After 11 months, I told them I would no longer like to be a member, they stated that I had to pay the last month!! After I showed them the contract they gave me, they still insisted that I pay for the last month, and they started harassing me! I cancelled my debit card, so they could not collect the money, and they continued to call to harrass me every single day! After numerous threats, they have sent the collection company after me for the measly $45 that I supposedly owed.
Long story short, do not believe anything the people at this gym say, it's WORSE than bally's. At least you can get out of the Bally's contract if you die. Even if your contract is in writing, they insist to queeze every last penny out of you, so BEWARE and find a more honest gym.
