I was a member in Richfield and Edina before. I moved to Austin for work and joined this LA fitness due to them there for me and my loyalty to your great establishment. Ive ventured to many other LA fitness and its been great. But this site is a bit different
Compared to the Richfield and Edina LA fitness, this one is the worst. The machines are so outdated! Because of this, they don't move very well and need to be greased up or completely replaced. They also only have one of each machine which means you are waiting sometimes.
This location is also small so machines are close and you're facing people which can be awkward. Overall, I didn't enjoy this gym and prefer my home la fitness at Edina.
I have not injured myself fortunatley, some machines were really faulty.. I have struggled to stay on path and on a correct regimen, my schedule can get off due to it being too crowed too. But the machines get repaired quickly and the gym is kept rather clean. HUGE improvements since my last rough visit.
The classes are one of my favorite parts of LA fitness. It depends on the instructor but I have had some great instructors for the body works, spin and Zumba classes. They offer class super early in the morning and later in the afternoon and evenings. The times work well with my work schedule.
To sign up they offered a discount and price reduction with no sign in fee, so that was kind. they also allow a tour and a free trial of what you can expect, so try that and see if your okay with the small surroundings.
This reviewer got a $10 Amazon gift card in exchange for the review
LA Fitness always runs commercials that made me want to check it out. The pricing was okay but the place was lovely
Yes, this location has a bunch of machines to work out every muscle and free weights if you are old fashioned.
The locker rooms can be dirty at times, so cleaning them more often would be a plus!
Joining, i didn't see myself losing any weight because i thought i was already fit. I have saw my body get stronger than i knew it could.
You get 2 free session in a secluded area, the trainers help you focus on what groups to work out on and they know how to make your muscles grow the way you want them to look.
They hand out these business cards for a free 2 week trial of the gym, and after that they give you a discount for joining. it was worth it!
I joined LA fitness to have a gym option that didn't require signing up for classes and that I could go on my own time to work out and it is close to home.
I would recommend. It never gets too crowded so you don't have to wait for machines. They offer classes that you can take as well that are a great workout option to mix things up.
They could add a greater variety of classes. The TV on the equipment are sometimes out of order.
My goals is to lose weight and be healthy and my membership has helped with that.
The instructors seem to be newer to teaching classes but they do a great job
Sign up process was simple and quick. The membership dues are definitely affordable and you can cancel with 30 day notice so you aren't locked in.
Proximity to my home. The gym is located in a good area in the 78704 off of south lamar. Plenty of parking as the gym shares the location with businesses that don't have much foot traffic.
Great facilities including a basketball court and pool. They also have a sauna and plenty of free weight equipment.
Longer hours really. The gym opens at 5am and closes at 10pm. Would like to see 24 hours if possible.
Physical fitness, they have the Appropriate equipment for it
Na. I haven't had personal training from la fitness.
Month to month with an activation fee
Wanted a proper place to workout close to home. Wanted to put on muscle and have a place where I could just come to generally exercise.
Clean, big gym, generally good access to weights even in busy times
Personal Training good value
Perhaps a cleaner bathroom area. Soap dispensers in the bathrooms are not always full and sometimes the automatic taps don't work.
I want to gain muscle. I have a personal trainer who sees me 1-2 times a week and sets me a workout schedule
I've had a couple of instructors and they have both been very professional and easy to workout with.
Very hard sell. But good sales people. You can negotiate and get a better price if you can pay up front.
The gym was close to the apartment where I was living at the time so it just worked out perfectly!
Most definitely recommend! The staff was super friendly, there was a lot of space and they had all the equipment I needed!
I wish they could just clean up the basketball courts a little more!
My goals are to get as lean as possible while maintaining muscle mass!
I did not have any instructors!
SUPER EASY! Everyone was so nice and they let me only pay for 2 months!
I joined to continue physical recovery from health issues, to build core strength and regain balance control.
Yes, I would recommend. The facility is clean -- though the floors are not always even -- and staff is friendly. Master Trainer Austin is experienced with training people with neurological issues and knows what he's doing. He's very good at encouraging clients to stretch beyond their comfort zone without putting them in danger.
The floors could be more level, though that's a building issue and not a gym issue.
My goals are to continue my physical recovery by increasing my core strength and regain my balance control. Cardio and supervised weight training is helping me meet my goals.
Austin is amazing! Very personable and customizes training sessions to clients' needs. Is certified to train neurological issues and offers tips and suggestions that can be utilized outside of the gym.
Initial one year contract for personal training, which was in addition to gym membership.
Location is key for me, also I participate in a Blue Cross Blue Shield Fitness Program.
Well, if you live or work close to the gym location then sure. I hesitate to recommend the gym because that may increase gym population and make my life harder.
The gym is crowded after work from 5-8, more workout mats would be nice for stretching, yoga and crunches.
I'm much more likely to visit the gym when it's on my way home to and from everywhere. So, the physical location is key. My goal is to simply workout more often.
I singed up through the Blue Cross Blue Shield Fitness program. So my signup process was likely different from most.
The gym was close to where I was staying at the time -- maybe about a 3 minute drive. My friend also was a current member so I wanted someone who I could workout with!
I would definitely recommend LA Fitness on South Lamar! All the equipment is fairly new, and they have one basketball court if you're interested in shooting around. With multiple exercise classes included in your gym package, I would say it's a good bang for your buck.
If there were a few more squat racks, I think that would be good. Also, if they could refinish the floor on the basketball court, that would be amazing.
My goal is to lose 20 pounds and because the gym has so many cardio machines they definitely can help me achieve that goal!
I did not have any time with the instructors, but from what I saw, they seemed nice!
I was only in town for the summer and the staff was nice enough to have me only pay the 2 months. Other than that, I think they just have you on contract to pay per month.
I joined this LA Fitness because it's close to my house, got everything I need in regards to workout equipment and low wait time for weights/cardio. It is also not nearly as expensive as clubs like Pure Fitness. I joined in January 2016 when I moved to Austin.
Yes! If you're looking for an affordable fitness center with classes and tons of equipment to chose from, LA Fitness South Lamar is your spot.
The club could use at least one more squat rack and stay open later on Sunday nights. They close at 8pm which is pretty early for a weekend night.
My goals are to stay healthy and have a convenient place to workout.
I prepaid for my members for 3 years and think it worked out to be under $20 per month which is way cheaper than paying month to month. If you can afford that option, it's the best bet!
