    Hates it

    This gym has gotten rather ragged around the edges in recent years. I guess they're tightening their belts like everyone else, which is to be expected, but this becomes a problem when it affects the cleanliness of the gym, which it certainly has. There used to be a person on staff who cleaned several hours of the day, but there is never anyone cleaning there anymore--EVER!! The locker room truly is an armpit--it STINKS, and just reeks of FILTH. I never, ever see anyone wiping anything down, and there is most certainly a problem with recurring bouts of STAPH INFECTION with the members here. I have talked with so many people there who have contracted staph, and I also worked for a doctor's office for a couple of years where we would get approx. 180 cases of staph per year where the only common denominator was A MEMBERSHIP AT THIS LOCATION!!! I reported it to them at the local and corporate level, and was completely brushed off. They didn't want to hear about it, and just told me they had no obligation to track the number of cases of staph that their members reported. I would never join this gym knowing what I know, and seeing what I see, but as I've said, it's very convenient and cheap. I DO believe that I am immune to staph, because it seems that everyone I know personally who works out there has had it at least once. I would highly recommend wearing clothing that covers you well, and don't work out with open sores or cuts. Oh, one other thing. Recently, the only have two water fountains here that have cold water, and one of them, nearest the ladies locker room, has had a problem for quite some time with the lever you press to get the water to come out--it goes up inside the fountain, and allows your hand to go in with it. I've stopped using it, as I have to wonder if it's possible to get shocked, or worse, electrocuted even, from the combination of water and electricity. Like I've said, they have totally let things go at this location. Interesting to note that they apparently HAVE had the money to put in several big screen, obnoxious televisions to broadcast advertisements, while letting this gym go to the dogs. Yuck...!
