Awesome state of the art equipment and machines! Even machines I never heard of until I saw them here. Just wish cardio equipment had their own tv! Wish they free-weight leg equipment like hack squat for example..( Very clean all the time. I've taken a class with Wallace before and I am not a fan of classes but going to his are a lot of fun and I go when I can! Definitely gets you sore the next day!

A real Gem in the city! Large and extremely cheerful and friendly staff. All new and well maintained equipment, everywhere you turn someone is cleaning. The reason I chose this center is because of the staff, they do a great job. I'll do another review in a year and we will see.

Amazing gym! They have plenty of machines and a variety of weights. They also have a beautiful indoor track that has a great view of the city. They also have racquetball courts, multiple basketball court, rowing machines, a moving rock climbing wall (by the track) and a great place to get a healthy snack.
