Worst gym – I have been going to this gym on and off since 1989. I started there when it was Quest Fitness. BAck then, it was clean and up to date. Now, the staff seem bothered when you ask them a question. The locker room and especially the showers are disgusting. There is black mold on the walls and floor of the shower room, rust on the fire sprinklers, the ceiling tiles are old, molded and falling down, the sink area is always dirty, has hair on it, is never dry, the floor is always wet, always has hair on it. The lockers are old and same ones(painted) that have been there since 1989. Guys, wake up. You need to spend some money and remodel the shower room and sink area and put in some new lockers. It is very disgusting. For the first time in a long time, I am thinking of selling my membership and moving to Golds or Snap Fitness. Get a clue Ballys.
This budget gym trims the fat off its patrons at streamlined facilities. – The Scene
Most Ballys stick to the basics for their design. Televisions broadcast silently above multiple rows of cardio machines; mirrored walls act as the primary decorative components. But thanks to high-energy television ads and low-impact membership premiums, this national fitness chain has steadily attracted a clientele bent on saving money while losing weight or gaining muscle.
Using fairly standard strength-training equipment and/or racks well-stocked with free weights, the best of the trainers here, who are classified at four different levels, can be as skillful as those found at costlier gyms. For group classes, signature exercise options include Spinning and Powerflex, as well as a number of patented routines inspired by Tae Kwon Do.
Worst Management & Staff at a Health Club EVER Go TO GOLDS GYM INSTEAD – Glen Burnie Ballys =Total Waste Of Time...... If you go to this location and expect a simple pleasure of a fan in a sweltering hot cardio area to be switched on... think again. The staff is so incompetent and knows nothing about customer service, the Manager Jason & "Asst." Manager Dallas are clueless. I had to battle it out with Ballys corporate, the district manager & the Glen Burnie manager "Jason" for 5 months to get a fan aimed at the cardio area. The ceiling fan above the cardio area I used every day was busted (spinning so slow it had a huge stack of dust on it.) They gave in & put a standing floor fan out at the cardio bikes. Then someone removed it because of a "space clearance issue" & I was back to square one. Then I called the district manager George & then Mgr. Jason had the busted ceiling fan replaced. Everything was fine I thought, until the other day. The new ceiling fan was not on... I asked the daft girl at the counter to turn on the ceiling fan I battled to have installed. I went back to pedaling for 5min & later no fan-I went back & asked again if she forgot to turn on the fan...she said she turned on a switch, I asked if she could check it again, went back to pedaling for 5min. and still no fan. I went back to talk to the girl & she had no answer, she blurted out that she didnt see the switch and then the "assistant" manager dallas came out and tried to act like some tough guy because I was asking about the fan - I had too many hard questions about the fan I guess. He did nothing to help me & as I walked away he yelled Your Welcome in a smartass way, I said thank you & also said you dont deserve a thank you as you did nothing for me. I put on my headphones & tuned him out then continued to workout. I went to the fly machine and he followed me over & said I "disrespected his employees" he asked me for my gym card and I refused, then He asked me to leave and I did. BEWARE!! I am so sick of Ballys that I will be selling my membership DIRT CHEAP!
