Over rated. Facilities lacking (major plumbing problems), dirty carpets, old equipment. I left very unimpressed

love my club ! 3/4/2011

I recently joined the SB athletic club based on a friend's recommendation. I am not a "gym" person, I prefer outdoor exercise - however I wanted to take some yoga classes and improve my overall fitness after several surgeries in the past 2 years. I have been thrilled with my experience at the athletic club, and find the higher cost well worth it. The instructors for the classes are top notch. The facilities are conveniently located. I love the open air spinning room, and they have loads of new equipment and great trainers. The staff are super friendly and helpful. As someone who hates a typical gym atmosphere, I enjoy the fact that this is much more than a gym, but a private club that has a restaurant/cafe, and social events such as film nights and cooking classes. If you just want to work machines and leave, this may not be the place for you. For me, it is like finding a healthy community that provides a place to rest and rejuvenate, a little more like a spa than a gym. I lov more

I'll take 24 hour fitness over this gym any day 10/23/2010

I was told this was the best gym in Santa Barbara and was very surprised to see how dirty the facilities were in the cardio room and locker room. When I asked an employee a question they were surprisingly unhelpful and rude. My next visit to Santa Barbara will be at another gym more

Five Star Rating! 4/7/2010

I'm a young professional who used the club frequently during my residence in Santa Barbara. I live in Los Angeles now and given the opportunity to use a facility in La like this one, I'd join in a second!\r \r An all around, great experience every time. Whether I was going in to get a serious workout in ...or just unwind (maybe even have a beer at the cafe and take it to the jacuzzi) ...great staff (John Youngblood and Shem Brown) to name a couple.\r \r See you next time I'm in SB! \r \r Eddie more

"They killed a child!" - don't be ridiculous 9/15/2009

I've been a member of this club for 25 years and found it to be positive in every way. I have to take exception to a post from "Willy G." which refers to a web site set up by lawyers trying to extract the maximum amount of money to "compensate" for the death of a child due to a tragic accident. Say that this club "killed a child" on a list such as this is way, way over any kind of line of good sense and common decency - note to mention relevance. Sucha post should be removed. more

SB Athletic Club 10/5/2005

I recently received a three-day trial membership to the Santa Barbara Athletic Club, so went to give it a try. The facility is very nice and has the latest equipment. Membership prices are on the high side. However, the building itself felt cramped to me because it is built up instead of out. There is no room to expand here. There is a very small lap pool (just a few lanes) in the back and a tiny jacuzzi spa. The members tend to be "yuppies" also. Staff are nice. Plenty of free parking. Just off the 101 freeway at Castillo Ave. PROS: cramped quarters, good equipment CONS: expensive. more

yes and no 6/3/2005

I have two completely differing opinions regarding this club. The staff are excellent. They are knowledgeable and friendly and everyone tries to call you by name. The members however are not my kind of people. They are made up of upper upper middle class families and really beautiful young people looking to flaunt their youth and beauty. more
