worst gym EVER – i should have known when i joined that it was a bad idea. the were very vague on their policy and charged us first and last month even when the girl at the front told us we were just paying the first. second, to reiterate what chris said. when you try to leave, they screw you over. the owner is an ass and you get the run around. literally. its been over 4 days since they charged my account and the owner hasn't called me back because apparently the girls at the front can't handle customer issues. they have to forward it to the owner. note: the owner works best by email. he can't answer the phone but he sure can email. give it right back him, he's a jerk and is just charging people for an extra month even when you provide your 30 day notice because he's a cheap ass trying to get as much money as possible. too bad everyone i know left them for LA FITNESS in ballard. talk about trainers that know what they are talking about instead of rain trainers that count reps for you! and free pilates classes. screw rain. join LA Fitness. also, for those of you who are like chris at i that are jumping through hoops to get out of our membership, just have your bank put a stop on Rain Fitness so they can't charge you any longer. Someone should put this guy out of business. It's ridiclous. either that or take a year long lesson in customer service.
good, straightforward gym – Great gym, straightforward. Nice staff and good spin instructors. Free weights and general weight areas solid, as well as new cardio equipment.
I just tried this High Altitude trainer, oh my God, this is crazy challenging. I thought I pushed myself until I tried using this thing. I am hooked on it now, as I am a cyclist and climber.
Please provide us with towels. Overall very enjoyable.
Good while you're there but just wait till you try to leave. – Pros:
- Clean facility
- Friendly staff and patrons
- Straightforward membership signup process
- 30 written notice prior to termination actually means up to 60 days prior because they conveniently omit an explanation that it takes an extra 30 days to stop auto payment.
- The manager is deceptive in handling paperwork and isn't forthright in answering questions when you end your membership.
Workout view! – The view of the Sound from this gym is impressive. After receiving a tour, and discussing membership prices, I was tempted to join. However, I found another gym that, while costing slightly more, was more convenient with better parking.
Amazing gym and great staff! – I am very surprised by what I am reading here from the past few posts. I am not sure what gym facility they are referring or if and how long they have been a member, but my experience has been nothing less than exceptional. My company has provided a membership to Rain Fitness for teh past 5 years, and it has been a good experience for me and the company I work for. The staff is always warm and attentive, never pompous, and they make my time at Rain both enjoyable and exciting. The facility is gorgeous with amazing views of the Puget Sound. I do know Glen the owner, as he enrolled both myself and my husband, and he has always been warm and professional. My husband closed his account, and had no problems whatsoever. I seriously wonder from a few of the recent posts, if they are former employees, because those that truly go to Rain Fitness know the facility is terrific and the staff and the owner are great! Pay no attention to some of these posts, as a 5 year member this is the place to be and a great value too!
Real gym for Real people – I have been a member of Rain for over 3 years and am continuously impressed with the services and classes provided to members.
The pros: The gym has great cycling instructors, an amazing Body Pump class that they launched a few months ago that keeps my booty in check, and personal trainers that fit all types of learning styles (I like Laura, who works you hard but still gives great positive affirmation.) The gym is clean, machines always are in working order, and this is about as far from a meat market as you can get. All shapes and sizes are welcome, and desired. Oh and the view of the Sound from the treadmills is always wonderful.
The cons: If you are looking for the Ritz of gyms this is not for you. You pay for your towel, if you forget your own. The owner can be a bit brash and uncompromising. Good group-x instructors come and go. There is no pool or sauna. Also, hours on the weekend can be a bit prohibitive. However, overall, the gym is great and none of the other local gyms that are in Rain?s price range come even close as competition.
I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Having not worked out before, I am not quite sure what I expected. Everyone was very nice and the facility was very beautiful. I happen to love old buildings and the space and views of the sound were simply amazing. I was concerned about ny lack of experience and they helped put my fears to rest. I met with Dan the trainer, very nice and very informative. He tested my current level of fitness and spent time on the floor with me, and helped me realize how out of shape I am. I am now in my third week and going. I have not tried any classes but I sure am sore from the work that Dan gave me. I have also been doing rowing at the new facility, I rowed in college years ago. The new place is very nice too, and the young lady at the desk already knows my name. Comfortable environment and well worth the money.
Great Gym, Go Here to Get a Great Workout! – Rain Fitness is great.....great staff! the trainers here are very personable and helpful. The staff is friendly and the gym is very clean. The facilities are new and very sanitary. The classes are fun and the schedule is very flexible. Parking is free and there are three different lots that are close by. The trainers are very concerned about your fitness and strives to make exercise fun and easy. Best of all, the gym is located with a great view of elliot bay. Overall, you get a great workout, the gym is clean, and the staff is very friendly.
Great atmosphere,clean,and very professional staff! The Best!!! – I don't what problem the last 2 reviews had,but their complaints are completely untrue! I've been a member since Rain Fitness first opened,and have been extremely happy with with the Facility,the management,and the staff! Very comfortable,no pressure sales what-so-ever,and a knowledgeable training staff that are there for their clients.All the equipment is very clean and well maintained,great classes available usually at no charge. Not a lot of hype and frills,if you want a great place to workout that's friendly,clean,and well maintained,then you'll love Rain Fitness!!!
An A+ club from top to bottom! – I really want to echo what LisaL said in here review...How are you going to sign a contract and not then get angry about it's terms?
I have been a member at Rain for years and have never had any of these problems with Glen. Glen is a great guy with a great sense of humor who talks to you like a friend, not just a member. The gym itself is clean and not cruisy. If you live in the Belltown, Queen Anne or Magnolia areas and have not given Rain a look yet? You are really missing out. John has also been very accommodating in my experiences with him and is also a fantastic guy. The people are really what make Rain if you ask me.
