I WOULD NEVER LEAVE MY CHILD HERE! HORRIBLE FACILITY!
The manager of the Wasilla location and his wife were witnessed by my 9 year old sister and mother, spanking children in the childcare facility. I have contacted their customer service department to which they "could not evidence" this spanking on their video recording. They also explicitly stated that if the manager was spanking his own children in the presence of my child within the childcare facility "that is not a concern of the company's." This is highly unprofessional and unacceptable, especially when I am paying for a childcare service.
Additionally, upon joining Body Renew I was told verbally that I had 90 days and/or 24 visits to determine whether the gym was a good fit for my family. During this period I could break my contract without penalty. This verbal agreement is not being honored by Body Renew and I am being forced to pay a cancelation fee of $150.
Be very careful with these people. Although the facilities were adequate and my personal trainer was a doll, the management is very questionable. They inundate you with paperwork and make it almost impossible to cancel. I thought I had cancelled, only to return to town 7 months later to be told I owed them $350 for personal training which I could not cancel until I had paid that balance and that my membership account had gone to collections. (I have a credit rating of 820 and am not deadbeat)
I will admit that body renew has a very specific clientele. If your a power lifter who benches 400 and squats 600 and dead lifts 800 this may not be the gym for you, But if your like most Americans and your goals is to get fit, lose weight, tone up, lean out etc etc etc than this is the perfect place for you. I have power lifted the majority of my life but there comes a time when lifting 400 lbs has no functional value. I simply want to get lean and in great shape. Come by and visit body renew and you can see for yourself.
Body Renew – Great club. Has fun classes and every thing I need to keep the weight off. Great clean and affordable..
I love it! – I love this place, I work out with a trainer once a week. I use the body renew solutions on line fitness and nutrition program to help keep me on track... Gretchen's boot camps are hard, but i am glad i did it.. I like how clean and new everything is.. and best of all their are no meat heads grunting dropping weights all over the place.. Great place for the fitness newbie like me:)
Not very effective – I suppose if all you were doing was using cardio machines body renew has got nice ones, but the class room for group classes is tiny and the weight equipment for strength training for sports is a joke. Just two blocks away from the old seward location is a newly remodeled facility with more Olympic bars and platforms for overhead lifting then any Alaska Club and yet they have a huge aerobics room with some free classes. Keep searching City search till you come across southside.
