Bally Total Fitness Complaint - Filthiness Of Club

Review by gabacho on 2009-04-01
What is bothering me is that the Bally Total Fitness in El Segundo, California is filthy. The drains in the shower have been clogged for over 2 months. I have brought this to management attention about 6 times in the last 2 months. The club no longer uses seat covers on the toilets, so members are using the toilet paper and it falls on the floor. 2 of the showers have no nozzles, one shower has no off on knob. They are constantly out of hand towels and there is no soap in many of the soap dispensers.

The person opening the place is constantly late, and lastly since they fired the cleaning people (that worked directly for Bally's) the outside company does a terrible job of cleaning. This club needs an overhaul.

Sounds like a pretty dismal fitness place. A LOT of them are struggling now and cutting expenses and services or going belly up. In the 'good old days' the 'fitness club' was either the 'Y' or a beaten down boxing club. The Yups wouldn't use 'em. Around came fitness clubs with between-set lattes. They're dying in the current economy.

This place sounds a lot like the YMCA here.

It's for reasons such as this I've never joined a fitness club--not that I don't need it. :) I use the gym at our Community Center. Much cheaper and very well kept.
