be prepared to go for a 30 minute training session with a weight room attendant on their circuit. This is to get you excited about working out at the gym. Then they will take your measurements and a body composition. This is done to use your body against you in a sales session. Then prepare to spend up to an hour with the sales person in which sometimes they will use scare tactics to get you on board asap. If you go to the kingsway location then try to avoid ralph or tony. They have been selling memberships since before I was born and are really mind warped with trying to sell you everything. Oh and they really want you to sign up because they make $80-$104 per contract signed.

I unfortunately got Tony. Worst decision of my life. Avoid at all costs imo.

Fit Xpress on 1st avenue !

But for me i'm a member of fitness world myself and if your truly dedicated to working out than you wouldn't mind signing the contract! if your just a casual than just hit the drop ins imo to save money.

Is there anybody to avoid @ the Richmond location? Which trainer/instructor do you talk to if you want some decent advice? They can't be all crooked.

never had a problem at Fitness world. I have gone to the Burnaby one, Richmond and downtown on Davie. Not as busy if you go early in the morning before work.

I got my membership at the West Georgia (Downtown) location, and I had a Kiwi (new zealand) as my trainer (I can never remember his name).. He was very awesome and helpful.. I go there on my lunch break all the time when I worked at Bentall 4..

i went once because i mentioned to a salesperson whom i was selling something to that i might be interested in joining. anyways, the NEXT day they started calling and pretty much didnt stop until i showed up for the sales presentation.

i sat in the office for almost 2 hours, had two different salespeople give me their pitch, then the sales manager came in to try to close me. i ended up making up some super bullshit excuse about not wanting to do a month to month contract and i would prefer to pre pay for the entire term, but my credit card was stolen the night before (or something along those lines) which got me the hell out of there, but they called every day after that for about two weeks until i finally told them i'd call the police if they called again.
