I previously had a good experience with LA Fitness in the suburbs. This location was near my job, so i decided i'd join and go after work.
I would stay as far away from this place a you an. It's apparently a "Signature Gym", but that just means they'll raise the price because of the location.
Everything here needs an upgrade, don't take me as a mad person, but the pool always has that layer of grease, the gym is always packed. Machines are always broken down and the locker rooms are always dirty and never clean.
Since joining, i have been able to focus on my cardio. My goal is to lose that last bit of fat to get my body prepared for next year.
Okay, the instructors are just salesman in disguise. You get one free session and they will be amazing until the end of the session. They will hassle you and make it seem like you can't succeed without them. I would stay as away from them as possible.
Signing up wasn't a hassle. You are required a $90 initiation fee with a monthly $45 charge and that is stuck for 6 months. Now if you want to cancel your membership after the six months you'll have alot of trouble! They won't unless you go in person when hopefully one of the managers are there.

I joined last year because i thought this signature gym would be better than others. Matt Washington gave me a tour around the gym and showed me that it looked nice. (This tour was on a Tuesday Morning at 10AM). I joined because I knew Winter was right around the corner and i needed somewhere to workout.
NO. LA Fitness and it's sales reps are a bunch of crooks, avoid them and their headaches at all cost. I hate that on a normal day, the gym is packed, there are tons of homeless people in the gym that i'm paying top dollar for. A lot of equipment is outdated or broken, Pool and hot tub are always dirty. There are thieves in the locker room too!
Everything above, honestly the best way to fix this gym is to stop letting homeless people in and to get honest sales rep.
Honestly, i liked working out here when i went in the mornings it felt relaxing, but i can't stand people standing around in the gym doing nothing.
I have not used any instructors, but they cut off their own part of the gym to workout with clients
Signing up is easy, they want 2 months deposit and $45 a month for 6 months and repeating. Now here is where things get sketch. After Six months i called my rep who told me to call him when i wanted cancel. He told me hell cancel it, then i got charge for next month. I called him he apologized and asked me to call him in a week to get things fixed and refunded. Instead he told me he couldn't refund me but cancelled my membership. I didnt care as long as i was done. But no i got charge again i called Matt and he tried pulling the same thing, then telling me there was a fee to cancel over the phone and i would have to mail a letter and wait 6-8 weeks to cancel my membership. I called corporate and they cancelled my membership but wouldnt refund me my 2 months overcharge. Avoid this place if you can!
I live down the street from this establishment and thought it be nice with the downtown area and being a "Signature Club"
Absolutely not!!! This place is overpriced for what you are paying for. Everything is low quality and horrible
Locker rooms need more security. Equipments' need to be repaired and they need to stop letting homeless people into here!!!!
Since joining i have been able to workout freely thanks to the pool area. I have lost around 11 pounds this whole year
The instructors will hassle you to get you to get a session in. I wouldnt recommend it, they overwork you.
there was a deposit of first second and last month with about $45/m and 6 month commitment. You get a discount if you pay it upfront
I joined this area last December because I wanted to get skinnier for the summer.
I wouldn't recommend it if you have other choices. There are a lot of homeless people that hang around here because they have a membership. On the plus side there is an indoor basket ball court.
The locker rooms can be greatly improved from cleanliness to security. People are always getting things stolen if you have a cheap lock. You need a $20+ lock.
Like previously stated, i wanted to get fit for the summer, but that didn't happen because of the reputation here.
I have not any encounters with instructors
I walked in and took the elevator to the third floor. From there I was able to speak to a sales rep to get me set up with a membership
I wanted to worked out and get in shape, and the gym was conveniently on my way home/ close to work.
No i would not. The place is never upkeep, always packed so you get lucky if you can use a machine, and full of homeless people!
Clean the locker rooms, increase security so i don't have my locker broken into and things missing on multiple occasions.
I just wanted to increase my muscle mass and get more toned.
I had not used any instructors but worked out with my friends multiple time.
The sign up process was pretty simple. You would talk to a salesmen, negotiate fees and then you were done. Be wary of the salesmen though.
