Steve Nash Gym

Anyone heard or is a part of that gym?

Prices and/or Information?

I've been to their site but they don't have a set price.

My dad goes to the Richmond location just to play tennis, he has to pay $40/month for the gym and then another $40/month on top just to play tennis

I know that if you don't negotiate (which you can, especially if you're a student) the monthly price is over $100.. But the downtown one is by far the nicest gym I have ever been in.

I hear all the cardio equipment has it's own HD TVs.

Some of the workouts they have are like carnival games.

It really is a luxury gym.

Just about to sign up.

Phase 2 Pricing
$59 enrollment fee +2nd person enrollment is $49
$54 a month per person
$44 for a second person

Month to Month, simple stuff, no smoke and mirrors I guess.

If you prepay for a year, you get 3 months free.

Tennis is extra $40 a month, booo.

Downtown gym is the unbelievable facility, my coworkers pay $110 a month.

Downtime gym is VERY nice, but I only really need free weights and a power rack. I like how all the plates are red as opposed to black or metal. And the bikes are cool - you can race against your buddy if you wanted to. Lots of gimmicky core machines and appratus. Theres one where you do a crunch and shoot hoops on the way up. Hard to explain.
And there are TV's everywhere, locker rooms, macines etc.. Ipod hookups
There is some global package for $300 odd a month that allows you access to all gyms around the world.

yeah they are super nice gyms. It appeals more to CEO style people who want to bike and talk on their phones. I am more into a prison yard style gym. Turn up the music on the old speakers and lets hit the rusty weights!

Question: For all you guys that go to the down town location, Has it always been dead when you go?

When ever I went, I swear the maximum amount of people was 5-10. And most were using the borrowed laptops that they have.

Yeah, you can borrow laptops. I still remember the wifi code for the gym if they haven't changed it within the last month.

It's definately a nice gym, but i find it a bit too pricey if you're going for just the weights.

you can usually get corporate plans with the Steve Nash gym, but it works out to be similar in price to the YWCA gym a few blocks over on Hornby.

heard from a friend that works out there that the membership is pretty pricey ($50/month), but it is nice and all.

i guess it depends what you're looking for in a gym.

if you want the prison atmosphere, lifting the rusty ass weights and probably get tetanus along the way, then steve nash probably isn't for you.

just signed up not too long ago

the free weight area is a tad cramped and not much room around the racks and benches but i was willing to sacrifice that for its good selection of machines and the sauna/hottub/steamroom and well maintained shower/locker facilities

i did $99 initiation and then $588 ppd for 22 mos.
also got 3 personal training sessions tacked on and a free month for the tennis part of the club (would've preferred a deeper discount on my rate but i was done negotiating)

curious as to what everyone else is paying?

^ That's fairly cheap for 588/22mos. That's like 27$ a month.... I inquired, and they had a promotion last week where when you sign up/prepay for 1 year, you get 6 months extra for free.....or if you prepay for 2 years then you will get another year free....
