Knowledgeable & friendly staff, plenty of work stations and clean environment.
Jackie guided me through a workout that challenged me but also was sensitive to my recovery from surgery. It was my first start at exercising after a long time and she was great at pushing but not allowing me to be over zealous and do too much.
Impressive commitment to overall fitness through quality of classes, equipment and trainers.
Cindy is an excellent trainer who understands my daily health challenges and quickly alters workouts to best fit my needs!
