I've been a member of Blue Hills Fitness under its previous incarnations as Gold's Gym and Fuzion. Before joining, i had heard a lot of negative reviews about the place. I gave it a try & have mostly positive things to say about my time there. Iliked the weight room facilities. The cardio room was a little small. I always had a good workout there. Never had a problem wirth Andy or any of his staff. In fact I went out with a few injuries & had to freeze my membership. Andy had no problem doing that & was always very pleasant & proferssional in my dealings with him. A lot of good people among the members as well, many of whom I remain friends with today.I left fhe gym when my membership ran because I moved out of the area. Otherwise, i'd still be there. This is a good gym if you're looking to work out hard with weights & do the Cross-Fit. If you're looking for an easy workout with machines, then Planet Fitness with there tootsie rolls at the front desk & free pizza the first Monday of the month may be for you.
Place is very dirty, never seen anyone cleaning. The gym is small but really only gym in Braintree. Do not join, save your money and go somewhere else.
What Helena O said about cancelling and still getting charged is true. It took me nearly six months to notice and my bank info had changed. With the help of my bank we figured out how they did it.
As for god reviews, Andrew and Fusion1987 ARE one of the owners.
It is a shame to see a such potential be ruined by an owner that should NOT work with people or potential even be day to day management.
Great Gym, Great People – READ EVERY WORD OF THIS TIP. You've been warned.
Take it from someone who knows the inside: do NOT join this gym. If you decide to sign up or already have, may I first say, good luck to you.
If you sign it, initial it, have your name on it, authorize it, or allow them to store your personal information, get a dated photocopy and save it forever. The owner/manager of the business typically rewrites the terms and conditions of a contract after the customer has already signed it. Monthly dues also change without notice and without apology.
If you are not a middle aged, white, middle class, English-as-your-first-language male, don't even bother. The owner is sexist, racist, and homophobic and you will not get the same low rates as everyone else, and that's a fact.
If you're a woman, you'll be talked about like a piece of meat and openly stared at while you're working out - don't bother complaining to the management because he is the worst offender. I have personally seen him watching females work out, only to come back to the staff and comment on them.
If you cancel a membership, save the paperwork because the owner will wait for you to notice you're still being charged before actually cancelling you.

fake reviews don't make up for a bad gym – The last 2 reviews are obviously made by the owner of this place. They're struggling with identify crisis first. They used to be Gold's, then Fuzion, then were becoming a WOW, then VEBO, and now Blue Hills. Realtors also say that any commercial space that has changed its name 3 times in 3 months is not a well managed business. Read the fine print if you decide to join cause this place is not going to survive. Clearly in need of cash given the state of the facility and equipment. Has lost a lot of business to better run places like Planet Fitness and LA Fitness. These places have better and newer equipment, locker rooms, etc.

Worst gym - very shady practices – I joined the gym and used the womens area. It was good at first but then some of the pieces of equipment disappeared? When I asked about it they said the piece of equipment downstairs broke so I found out they take equipment from the women's area instead of fixing or replacing. Then it happened again with another piece I was using. My husband did the personal training and hurt his back during one of the sessions so couldn't go for a few weeks after that. Be careful - listen to your body. My husband tried to cancel the personal training sessions but got the runaround and they kept billing him every week. He finally called and said what do I have to do cancel the membership. After that call, Fuzion charged my husband's bank account $90, then $150 (cancellation fee) then $600 and then $19.95/each for the month of August- all within minutes of each other. We called to compalin but the owner (Andy) wouldn't come to the phone. Last week I got a call from Fuzion asking why they can't bill my bank for Sept. I explained that we cancelled the membership and already were billed the cancellation fee. Yesterday I got a call from a collection agency asking about the bill for September for Fuzion and today I got a letter from the collection agency. There are rumors they are being bought out by Work Out World. I think the owner is trying to get as much money up front before that happens. My advice - wait until W.O.W takes over before you join.
I"m sorry we were not able to live up to your expectations. Not sure which equipment we moved from women's fitness center? You came to us to help your family live a healthier lifestyle. You agreed to commitment and were happy. Invested in advertising family flooring business on our club television station. Offered to freeze membership time and personal training visits. Work't World rumor is false. Been in business for 24 years. Honor remaining visits if you choose to return
Excellent gym layout and best customer service – This gym is by far the best gym I have ever worked out in. The environment is friendly and the staff is top notch. This gym blows planet fitness out of the water and provides the essential equipment to build muscle and lose fat in no time. I highly recommend this gym over any other to someone who is really looking to get in shape.
