Excellent Gym – This gym has everything you could ask for. A newly renovated salon & spa, beautiful premisses and helpful staff. If you are looking for a health club that goes above and beyond.. this place is it. Its not just a gym, its a life style center
Save your money – Signed up for a meditation course through the recreation program. Apparently, there is a lack of communication between the two b/c it took over a month for them to figure out that I didn't have a receipt or some form of id that said I was signed up for the class. Instead, the last class that I paid almost 100 dollars for, I had to waste running home to find a "receipt" to print out to PROVE I had paid for the class. In my opinion, when you sign up for a township program and it is connected to the NAC, save your money and aggravation! There is a very BIG lack of communication there.....
Great gym – I joined the NAC over a year ago and I love my gym. Though the gym more expensive than most gyms in the area, the NAC offers many more classes than any other gym I've checked out. I can always find a class to fit my schedule and the teachers are great too. I have heard people at other gyms complain about waiting to use machines but I have never had to wait. The staff has always been very nice to me and very helpful. If you are not rude to them, they won't be rude to you. I am thinking about moving soon, but if I do I know I won't be able to find a gym I like as much as the NAC!
If you have another club in mind GO THERE! – I joined the NAC because it was close by and the facade is quite good. You have two major cardio studios with plenty of treadmills, a wide range of classes, a lot of nice services like an on site beauty salon and towel service.
My major complaint is that once they have your money you aren't worth listening to. Their front desk staff and most of their gym staff make up glib excuses for things like why the TVs have not been working for THREE MONTHS. Or why half the treadmills in the cardio center are continually broken. When you try to talk to someone you are fowarded to e-mail addresses that are either no longer working or to people with more excuses.
Sadly, this is all Bucks county has to offer at this time. It does have convenient hours and at heart it is a good gym. If I had an alternative I would not spend my money here.
READ REVIEWS AND A SIMPLE PHONE CALL CONFIRMED – I called this morning to schedule a meeting with someone to join. I had never visited the gym but because of its locatin I was going to give it a try. While on the phone, I told Trisha, their staff member that their reviews were poor online and if she quickly got defensive and was inappropriate. I do not even want to bother with joining there. First impressions are important and that converstion just confimed why they have such BAD reviews!
