I was a member of the Wellness center for over a year. Everything there is nice. The equipment is in good shape. It is very clean. There are employees there to help you get started and there are employees there who walk around and give tips. In fact, you must spend a visit with a trainer before you can start. They even have you fill out medical info so that they are sure you are physically able to do it.
Now, the negative that caused me to leave and go elsewhere. During the winter months, it is crowded. More than one time, I left because there were too many people. Specially on Monday, and specially this time of year.

I am a very serious fitness buff and I found myself having to wait, or bypass certain equipment because it is occupied. I also found that many of the members there do not pay attention to the circuit. That is to say, you are suppose to go from one piece of equipment to the next in order to allow a smooth flow through the equipment. Instead, people go from 1 to 6 to 4 to 9 and so on. That is a problem for me, but many others don't seem to care to much. It's nice, the people are nice, its clean, it's just toooooooooooo busy for me.

Sorry I missed this one in Jan..

I joined the Center in March of this year. It is great for me. I like to go in the early morning. This year, they did something different. The 3 monthers had to come in after 11 a.m. This freed up the machines for the 6-12 month members. It seemed to work quite well. The staff liked the change..as well as the members that has longer memberships.
