Editorial review from Citysearch 7/21/2013

It is no wonder Cheetah Gym is slated for closing...again. Clearly the previous owners allegations may have been correct. The business struck me as mafia owned and after being a member I am convinced of that. The business suffered from poor maintenance and poor leadership which may account for why it can no-longer pay its bills. My question is: ""How quick can it close?"" more

bad billing policies 12/7/2010

I was a Cheetah member for a year. The gym is nice and clean, but I wasn't using it as much as I had hoped. I contacted them at the end of my contract, within 30 days before the renewal (per the contract). I spoke with a manager about canceling my membership and he said to fax in a written and signed cancellation request. I jumped through their hoops carefully: wrote the letter, signed it, faxed it in. Now, 4 months later, I found out that they've continued charging my credit card for a full membership AND have added fees on top of that because they couldn't run the past month's charges because my expiration had passed. I contacted them today to help them figure it out, and the manager wanted me to play even more games with a special registration specialist. The gym might be clean, but their billing policy is shady and they're unwilling to correct their billing errors. Steer Clear! more

Great classes 2/17/2009

I love this place! The hours are great, and the people that work there challenge you to get a great workout. Its also a really good place to meet people, I have actually made a small handful of friends there, and dated a guy that I met there. The facility is clean, and the classes are the best. Pros: Great classes Cons: Expensive! more

Awful Gym-- crowded space with a rude staff 8/9/2007

The Cheetah sells overpriced gym memberships based on superficialities and status symbolism and , after one joins, continues to put on the sales pressure for additional services. The ownership/staff (not all-- but a few key individuals) is not only unhelpful, but unnecessarily confrontational and edgy. Pros: shiny machines and cold towels Cons: staff space and attitude more

Alot of Fluff 1/10/2006

Yes, it is a nice gym and definitely modern BUT, I have been to several gyms in this city and this one has many faults despite some great recommendations. The place is too overcrowded and the staff can be very rude at times. There is really no place to stretch or anything else because of the ""social scene"". Prices are high and I hear they are a bear about contracts. If you are a gym person and cannot be intimidated this is for you, if you are uncomfortable in crowds the stay away. Pros: Big, Social Scene Cons: Crowded, Pricey, Staff more

User review by bc_2005 9/26/2005

I am not so sure that is a gym or a resturant. The gym has very bad air ventilation. I can smell food while I am working out. :( more

Great gym - but not a perfect 10 2/25/2003

While I agree with the other reviewers that the facilities are in general quite good- over my past year as a member I have found the lack of space for stretching to be quite inconvenient. This is the one downside (well, this and Andersonville parking) from the otherwise well-equipped gym. At peak times I often end up stretching in the locker room as best I can. Pros: atmosphere, Equipment available, helpful staff Cons: short on open space, parking more

AWESOME GYM 2/14/2003

From the top floor where you can watch TV and do your cardio to the bottom floor where you can look at the turtle in the waterfall, Cheetah Gym is awesome. They have great instructors and most of the classes are included in a full membership. Wonderful juice bar and often have member brunches. Great to check email before/after workout. Nice place to workout with great people Pros: Clean, Not crowded, Great Classes Cons: Expensive more

Beautiful Gym, Incredible Staff 1/13/2003

The first time I set foot in this gym, i was stunned at how gorgeous this place is. The staff are some of the friendliest people i've ever met at a gym. There's a nice little juice bar off to the side along with an internet cafe. A lot of equipment so there's not a wait for a certain machine. I'm pretty sure they have kickboxing classes and some aerobics programs. Seriously, setting foot in this gym will make you want to work out there and keep coming back. Pros: great staff, beautiful facility, lots of equipment Cons: uhm, not open 24 hrs? more

LOVE IT 12/5/2002

I love this gym. I joined about a year ago, I now work at another gym, but still go to Cheetah on my days off. The urban feel of it is awesome, and another huge draw is having your own tv attached to the cardio equipment. I highly suggest checking out this club. more

Best gym in the city... 6/27/2002

Cheetah gym in Andersonville is the best gym in the city. It's not too expensive and has all the amenities of a higher-priced place. The gym is always clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Internet cafe is a nice touch - the owner is always thinking about how to make it a better place - it shows. more
