“The Club is a great fitness center with tons of room and all of the amenities you could hope for. Free weights, machines, basketball courts, swimming pool, spin classes, sauna, plenty of lockers, etc. The staff is always friendly, the facilities are clean and reasonable prices. I would highly recommend this gym to anyone in the area.” – Austin M.
FLEX is known for its 24-station circuit training and group activities. Working out should be a pleasurable experience. This has been their bold objective since the day they opened their doors. Exercising is a difficult task. That was something they knew going in. But sticking to a great workout regimen shouldn’t be any more difficult than it has to be, and the key is to get into the habit and develop momentum. FLEX has established a reputation as a location where members can enjoy a fantastic workout with their friends in a clean and welcoming environment. Its mission is to make working out fun while also providing its members with the personal attention and motivation they need to achieve their fitness goals.
At FLEX, they also believe in constantly increasing the bar, which means being uncompromising in the pursuit of the best training experience possible. When they first opened in November of 2010, they were just a circuit gym, but today they’ve grown into a destination for folks who want to work out in every way possible. You can attend a fitness class in their lovely group workout space, work out on your own in the free weight and training area, or simply hop on an elliptical, treadmill, or rowing machine in the fully equipped cardio room.

“Friendly, low-key local gym. They have everything you need for most regular workouts, and rarely need to wait for machines except during very busy times. The staff is super friendly. No vibe of pressure, everyone is just there to do their own thing. Super convenient location.” – Emily H.
Planet Fitness is a low-cost, high-quality fitness facility. Planet Fitness first opened its doors in Dover, New Hampshire, in 1992, and it worked similarly to every other gym in the small town, catering to the same small percentage of the population that exercised and belonged to a health club. With a significant number of members and locations, Planet Fitness has risen to become one of the largest and fastest-growing fitness center franchisors and operators in the United States.
Planet Exercise has grown to more than 2,039 locations in 50 states, Canada, Australia, and Latin America, with the goal of improving people’s lives by providing an inexpensive, high-quality workout experience in a pleasant, non-intimidating environment.

“Love this place, the management and staff are very courteous, helpful, and willing to give the customer the benefit of the doubt. My home PF location has been San Jose for the past year, but I love that I can bounce back and forth between both locations with my Black card membership. Possibly will make this PF location my home location in the future. Love.” – Lauren L.

“I love coming here to work out. I’ve been looking to get a personal trainer for a while now. I’m glad I came here. The owner took the time to help match me with a good match.

I love that I get to pursue my personal fitness goals with a professional who understands and respects my goals.” – Nnena U.
