I just joined the club, they promised all kind of classes, but nothing was done for a month and a half. All they have at evening - Zumba classes with no viriety at all. Even so, our class was canceled 4 times, as teacher didn't show up.
Don't waist your money!

They Always run out of towels everyday during after working hours, And always the reason that they are very busy, While their just talking about personal things and texting. And inside the change room, lots of towels everywhere. Not maintained properly, Yes it's overrated.

Just quit this gym yesterday after 2 plus years. Found out that we (my spouse and myself)were paying WAY more than other members. Was told we could " Buy Down" to pay what other members are paying. Phoned LA Fitness Headquarters in California as management here not empowered to make a decision. Agent in California was bored and utterly disinterested even though I offered to stay if they waived the rip-off/buy-down. Be very careful before you join this place. Cathy, the operations manager was pleasant but unable to help. On a scale of 1-10, its a strong 3.

Sadly, my experience with LA fitness has been exremely frustrating. After 3 months, I am quitting this facility. The staff ask you to communciate with the headquarters in California, the restrooms are disgusting. Showers are stained with mildew, and filthy. Broken faucests are not fixed. Rubbish is found on the floor. The trainers act like they are skilled and act like they are to busy for you and that you are an inconvenience. Everyone this trilled to have you join initially and then you realize that it is nothing more than a gimmick to have you join. Everyone puts pressure on you to encourage you to purchase things you are not interested in, and it is frustrating and a waste of money. I regret not having joined Goodlife initially of even the YMCA. When you pay for an idea, and they do nothing to uphold the idea of a facility with finesse, you realize that perhaps for for a home grown facility is probably better than an american chain that doesn't care. When you equipment is new, but its just to plastic fantastic, its not worth it. Save your money, save the sress and just rgo else where!

If you have a regular membership (not signature) they'd like to charge you an extra fee every time you use this gym, of around $15.

What.

No thanks. I'll stick to my regular LA Fitness, which from the sounds of it is just fine.

I have been a member at this club since it has opened and really like it, I have never had a problem with the staff, they have always be helpful, yes sometimes they run out of towels but part or that is becasue people take them home, I did once by mistake. I use the club now mainly for yoga. I went to the Eglinton club last night to take a class and was advised that I only have a single club membership, they did let me take the class. I went in today to my location and talked with Kathy and she was great, confirmed that it was a single club membership but switched it over to Multiple so I can use both. When reading these comments remember people are more likly to post negative things than postive, read the comments go in and check out the club and make up you own mind.

I joined the Newmarket club from day 1 that it opened, and I loved it. After switching from another gym I wont go back to my previous club or any other for that matter. I moved out of the Newmarket area and now drive out of my way every day to go to the Bathurst/Rutherford location simply because I don't want to go to another chain of gym. La Fitness locations are popping up everywhere.... Hopefully they'll bring one to Woodbridge soon so I can enjoy the amenities closer to home. I am the type of gym goer that keeps to myself. In my opinion the staff is nice and well kept, I never have anyone trying to push products/services on me, The washrooms/change rooms are clean, the machines are always clean, never "out of order" like some places I have been. They keep the gym clean, the equipment well-maintained. I know some people expect the world from their fitness club, and if so...pay the extra money to go to a private club. This is a $30/mth club people. And for what youre paying.... you're getting a hell of a fantastic gym.

Just asked for my renewal money back. I initially signed up in Burlington/Mississauga LA Fitness and the Burlington one is even better than this "signature" gym. Initially signed up for $464 and then renewal fee of $305 annually.

I've had access to this gym and all gyms for the last two years, but now Signature and LA fitness in Burlington/Mississauga saying I have to upgrade and pay another $200 a year.

So another $200 for the same service I've had for the last two years? Forget it....theses guys are crooks. I'm making a complaint to BBB. Typical Bait and Switch.
