24 Hour Fitness seems to know what everyone wants in a gym. A new club just opened last year in our neighborhood and not only is it well laid out, it has everything you could ever need for exercise and weight loss. It doesn't matter if you want to do some laps in the pool and cycle classes to stay fit, or tone your muscles by using using dumbbells and kettlebells weights (like me) they have more than enough equipment (even during busy times of the day) to keep you on track.

I also like the 24 Hour Fitness app. It is a great companion to working out as you can track your progress and use many of the digital tools like the calculators to figure out where you need to improve.
Pros
Great amenities. Clean clubs and change rooms. Well maintained.
Cons
Membership options can be confusing.

The club I use is clean and has fairly new and well maintained exercise machines. I ended up purchasing a 2 year 24 Hour Fitness membership from Costco. It saved me a fair bit of money at the super sport gym and works out to cost me only just over $27 a month. Those of you interested in joining the gym this is the cheapest way to go if you actually plan on using your membership.

My introductory free hour with the trainer was informative and is worth it for newbies to fitness. I ended up paying for 10 sessions when I first joined on at 24 Hour Fitness. It is well worth the investment as it gets you started on the right track and helps you to use the equipment correctly so you get the most out of your workouts.

Overall I have been impressed with 24 Hour Fitness. If you are into classes like Yoga and cycling them seem to have a lot of those as well. I haven't used them but the coaches look very energetic in the classes I have seen.
Pros
Clean and lots of equipment
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

The equipment at this gym is modern like at any other 24 hour fitness. It is very clean and well lit. I find at most big box fitness gyms that after a year or so after opening the place starts to have a bit of wear and tear and the janitorial staff starts to slack. I haven't found this to be the case at my home gym in Austin. I also travel a lot for business and have used a number of 24 hour fitness gyms across the United States. Most are very good, well organized and clean.

I haven't done any fitness classes except for a couple of spin classes so I can't really comment on the trainers and the classes themselves but the ones I have seen while I work out always look busy and the instructors seem to know what they are doing.

I mainly use the weights and the treadmills. I never had to wait for a treadmill, even during peak hours. If you do go during a busy period just keep an eye out for the machine you want and when it is available grab it during your workout and then continue your weights after.

The weight gym has lots of equipment and my fellow members have always been nice and willing to spot if need be.

I haven't used the pool yet as swimming isn't my thing. I actually may join their basketball league at my home gym though. It's free and the guys in it look to be my skill level. You can really work up a sweet when playing and I find playing sports much more enjoyable than getting my exercise by running on a treadmill.

Pros
Super clean and recently renovated. Newer machines.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I like 24 Hour Fitness compared to other gyms near by because they have everything under one roof. I can swim, weight train and take fitness classes. The change rooms and showers are clean and there is lots of room to get dress. They have plenty of cardio machines so I have never had to wait. There is also lots of parking.

I had a trainer as well for a month. I had initially worked out by myself for 6 months and was not seeing the results. My trainer Dave was very knowledgeable and was able to develop a workout routine that fit me. He showed me how to do the exercises properly so I would maximize the workout. It definitely changed things and now I am loosing weight and looking much more fit.

Pros
Trainers are great, Lots of things to do.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I signed up for a 3 year contract about a year ago and I have been using the gym ever since about 3 to 4 times a week. I have lost over 30 pounds and I feel happier, healthier and just love life more. Loosing weight and physical activity is a great way to change your outlook on life.

At the gym I go to they have a pool and lots of fitness machines like treadmills and ellipticals. I always get one when I want. I work out usually mid morning after a group fitness class. I also really like the trainers of the group classes. They are very professional and knowledgeable.


Pros
Lots of exercise equipment. Good fitness classes
Cons
All Gym memberships are a little expensive IMO
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

When I lived in the city my condo had a small gym which I used contently. Not the best but it had what I needed for the most part. Well I got married about a year ago and we moved out to the suburbs into a nice house. While I have room in the basement to add a workout room I didn't want to spend the money on the room and buying the weights etc. I looked into bowflex briefly as well but decided against it. I also miss working out with other people as for me it provides motivation.

After gaining a few pounds I figured enough was enough and I joined 24 hour fitness that was somewhat close to my work. It would be better closer to my house but it was the best option in terms of cost, location, equipment, and pool (in order of importance to me).  I am glad I did. I usually work out after work and while the gym is busy it is not overly so. I always get the equipment I need during my workout. I have made a number of friends that I exchange tips with and help spot. The free personal trainer session was also nice and I was able to modify my current workout and exercise routine for the better. I am targeting my legs more now which I hadn't before.

While no one really wants to spend money on a gym membership I can't complain about mine. It is not too expensive and it was cheaper than the bowflex financing program I had checked out.  I forgot to mention that the fitness classes seem good as well. I haven't done one yet as I rather use a tread mill but I think my wife wants to join and I know she will be interested in the variety of programs that 24 hour fitness offers.
Pros
Excellent free weights area. Lots of tread mills.
Cons
A little far from my house
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
