I have been a Nelsons Member for years, I have to keep re-signing up because I keep moving out of the area, then I move back. I have never had a problem. They always welcome me and give me the same great deal. I am a lifter and there is no other gym that combines a friendly environment and a serious lifting experience all in one. While there are allot of great looking people here, it is not a typical meat market gym. I always have the feeling I am a part of a great group of healthy people. I go there to escape. No other gym like it in Portland Metro area. This Gym is like a Golds Gym before they sold out!!! The new owner Johny is a great business man and you can tell he is making positive changes. I do have to say that the Oregon City Location is the true gem, but the Milwaukie location is getting much better. Great Staff! I Show up every morning around 5 am and a gorgeous woman greets me every morning, and says goodbye when I leave, what more could a guy want?
