I really enjoy Bally's and have been a member since the early 90's when I bought my membership. My monthly membership fee is still pennies on the dollar in comparison to any other gym within a 50 mile radius. Over the years, some of the equipment has changed - all for the better. I don't use the pool or spa as my lungs are 50% scarred over due to allergies and autoimmune disorders, and the sanitizer makes it difficult to breathe. After visiting other local gyms, my husband became a member after his first visit. Besides being able to use all the equipment and access to all the classes, his work outs are well worth the money (as little as it is) spent! He also loves the pool and whirlpool spa and regularly uses them during the colder months here, as we have our own pool. I've recommended Bally's to many people over the years and many have become & remain happy members. After all, our dollar spends the same whatever gym we go to! Why waste any hard earned money on athstetics and glam?
