Nice Gym ! – I've been a Bally member for quite some time, I enjoy the ability to have multiple gyms at my disposal to get a good workout. That being said, this particular Bally's is not bad. There's a lot of new equipment, plus plenty of "Hammer Strength" equipment. The gym itself is clean. I didn't see any of the madness that some of the other folks who wrote reviews saw. I don't deal with the trainers, because I am a private trainer and I know the whole car salesman style pitch that happens at most chain clubs. But all that aside, the equipment is clean and plentiful, the staff is relatively friendly, then again because of my personality they really don't have a choice. As for the locker rooms, I've seen worse, it's all timing. Believe me, after reading a bunch of reviews on this location, I walked in expecting the worst, but it's not bad, it's part of the Macy's mall complex so how bad can it really be ?
This budget gym trims the fat off its patrons at streamlined facilities. – The Scene
Most Ballys stick to the basics for their design. Televisions broadcast silently above multiple rows of cardio machines; mirrored walls act as the primary decorative components. But thanks to high-energy television ads and low-impact membership premiums, this national fitness chain has steadily attracted a clientele bent on saving money while losing weight or gaining muscle.
Using fairly standard strength-training equipment and/or racks well-stocked with free weights, the best of the trainers here, who are classified at four different levels, can be as skillful as those found at costlier gyms. For group classes, signature exercise options include Spinning and Powerflex, as well as a number of patented routines inspired by Tae Kwon Do.
