This company opened up some time ago at Ellsworth & Crismon in Mesa, AZ.
After about 6 months they closed up shop. My membership was free from my senior citizen Medicare carrier. I found the average employee there pleasant. But the boss and some woman in charge of the place were absolute snobs. I made a suggestion to this woman and her response was curt and rude and she just walked away from me. The boss also blew me off. The place was as crowded as Wal-Mart on Friday night-bad. They promised they were going to build a big huge club across the street but I guess the recession got them. One thing I did not like was that they had a row of desks against the north wall and that is where the salesmen sat. It was like a scumbag car dealership. I overheard the boss interviewing prospective salesmen and telling them of his wondrous sales prowess and what he expected of them. It was horrendously freaking tacky. I am glad they failed.
Me I went back to Anytime Fitness on the N. E. corner across the street and was glad to get back over there. Only reason I'd left Anytime was that they kept it too hot in summer, but now they keep it at 72-71 which is fine.

ARIZONA -- I am a former employee who has been reading these reviews of "pure fantasies " and would like to pull back the curtain if you will. The employees are just as confused as the members thats the beauty of this beast. Any person off the street(criminal records included trust me) who can answer a want ad with money to pay them for a apex cert. (In order to sell apex for them) qualifies as an employee in training. Passion for fitness (cash) and a one week course hardly qualifies any person to advise people on nutrition and health related issues as they pertain to supplementation and exercise prescription, body mechanics, posture, heart conditions, injuries etc, etc . However what pure fitness does better than most is make sales people!
Packaged, scripted and rehearsed properly it can come off well with the occasional hard sell near end of month to hit your mark so management won't demote you yet promote to hire pay structure. Look you wanna work out in peace? Go elsewhere!
CHANDLER, ARIZONA -- Warning ---> Pure Fitness is not the place where you should bring your kids, we had our baby there at the day care and she completely freaked out. Doesn't stay at other places anymore since that happened. We are not sure what went wrong, but the result was not good at all. Please don't make the same mistake and avoid this facility.

We tried to speak to the management to get an explanation, but all they did was blaming the baby. This is Poor Fitness!!!
