Lexington's Best health club since 1984. Buy LOCAL and join LAC. A+ BBB ranking too.
Great – I love working out at LAC!
I joined 5 years ago and they have always provided a great place to get the best workout possible! Yes they may be repairing things from time to time, but have you ever belonged to a place that let's the equipment , showers,carpet (just to name a few) get just disgusting? I have and never again! LAC keeps it new,clean and always up to date with more than enough classes and equipment to handle what is in demand! I highly recommend LAC..
Avoid at all costs – I only wish I could give them no stars. I moved to Lexington and joined this club on a month-to-month contract. Believe me, I would never join a gym on a long-term contract, so tat was extremely important to me. Several months later, due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed to cut expenses and so I provided notice that I was terminating my month-to-month contract. They sent me an invoice for a month over overdue dues. I again responded I had cancelled my month-to-month contract. This was in August 2010. Never heard anything till Jan. 2011 when they said they would like to re-establish my membership but that I would need to "clear my balance." I explained I had no balance, I had a month-to-month membership and cancelled it. Never heard another word until late October 2011 when I got a notice from a collection agency that I owed them over $2,000. I contacted BBB and Lexington Athletic Club told BBB that I had a 16 month contract and not a month-to-month. Obviously, they COMPLETELY misrepresented what they were selling me because the bulk of my discussion with my member rep there was that I needed a month to month. These people are total scam artists. Avoid them, there are much better facilities that don't misrepresent their membership packages. They strangely have a decent rating with BBB, through their lies, but start reading about them on here and elsewhere. They have terrible business practices. I recommend Urban Active Fitness.
Worst place to join!!! – This is my first time writing a negative review for anything, but I simply think others considering a fitness club should be aware of the business practices of this place. I quit my membership at approximately the one year anniversary date of joining...since I missed my "exit window" by a day or two, they were legally entitled to stick me for an additional month's dues. After about 4 or 5 months, I was notified about the "delinquent" dues and told the amount would be turned over to a collection service if not paid. Although annoyed at the situation, I paid the additional month's dues and a small fee for their trouble.
Let's fast forward this story 14 months...I received a letter from a collection service in Tennessee. You guessed it, my "delinquent" account was submitted for collection - well over a year after they had been paid and almost two years since I resigned from this place.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND AVOID LEXINGTON ATHLETIC CLUB LIKE THE PLAGUE.
Try another place you will be happier – No showers, no lockers, no hot tub, no sauna. Can we have a sense of urgency when renovating. I can't use half the facilities but must pay the same rates. If you try any other club in Lexington I think you will have a much better experience.
Great Club! – LAC is a fantastic facility! I have been woking out there for over 10 years and they are constantly remodeling and renovating the facility. The equipment selection is outstanding not to mention the pool, track, basketball and raquetball courts. tbargo: they replaced the entire roof earlier this summer.
Try a another club – I would not recommend this club. It is not in a good state of repair. The roof has been leaking for at least the last year. The fix for this is to place buckets and towels all around the building. I have never seen any upkeep going on at this club to fix these types of major problems.
