I've been a sweat member for 6 years. I go to the 24th street, center city and queen village locations and workout 5-6 times per week. I don't understand where the few negative re...

tiny, overpriced, public 6/2/2011

This gym is tiny, cramped, and the equipment is mostly old. You will work out in front of anyone walking by on the popular street. Prices are outrageous for such a small, underwhelming place. I thought the staff were mostly surly, and found that while they were very chatty with the ladies, I couldn't even get them to say hi or bye to a normal guy like me. I went on a free trial, and it took a day and several phone calls to actually cancel. Overall I couldn't imagine paying $60/mo or more for this place. more

Don't go anywhere near this place. 4/26/2011

Do not join Sweat under any circumstances. They use a company by the name of ABC Financial to bill their customers for membership fees - Google it and you won't believe the horror stories you will find about them. The stories of people trying to cancel their memberships are unbelievable - and unfortunately I have been dealing with this myself for several weeks now, with no success as of yet in being able to cancel my month to month membership. more

Another scam 8/31/2010

Don't try to cancel your membership. They charge you a ridiculous amount of money just to cancel. This is a terrible way to run a business. Go somewhere else!!!!! more

Just Okay, Too Unstable 9/29/2008

Good: Price is not bad but 12th Street and Rittenhouse Square Fitness are cheaper.. Bad: Ongoing construction, older equipment at most locations, poor class schedule. No classes start on a staggered schedule, meaning that students from two different classes crowd the locker room together. Improvements: More classes, more challenging classes. Wednesday is a dead zone for classes and so is Friday. For that matter, Thursday is not good either. People have been injured in the Thursday class.. more

too many meat-heads for me 9/14/2005

sorry, but there were too many muscle meat heads at this place. I went on a 2 week trial membership and was not impressed with the gym. The machines were nice, but felt very compact. Then the weight area is full of testo. Grunts and screams are heard everywhere! I was much more impressed with Philly Sports Club or even the Ballys (although avoid Ballys, i hear their contracts are impossible to get out of) more

No nonsense fitness 8/18/2005

Cheaper than the pricier Rittenhouse Square gyms, small Sweat has pretty much all you need. Small, mood-lit, refreshingly chilled spinning room with rope lights strung around the walls. WELL-equipped weights area (the heart of the gym, with plenty of tough and buff guys bulking up) Rows of cardo machines with TVs (disconcertingly near the plate glass windows, so you feel a bit like a hamster in a wheel in a cage). Nicely proportioned studio for yoga, aerobics and other classes, with windows on 2 sides and a soothing near-the-schuykill diffuse light in the evenings. Not pretentious. The buff-guys in the evenings gave me serious, respectful pointers despite my being a weakling. No posing or flirting. Just comortable... Owner Scott Capan is a nice guy. He has one other gym farther out of town and a bowling alley. more

Sweat Gym Offers Basic but Good Gym Experience 8/18/2005

Sweat Gym is not especially large or frilly but it offers the key services I look for in a gym. It has a wide variety of aerobic equipment like ellipticals and treadmills each with its own TV screen built-in so you can work out to your own personal TV show without being bothered by others (headphones included). It also has an extensive collection of weight machines and free weights. It offers an essential list of classes. The major disadvantage (or advantage, depending on one's view) is that the gym fronts a busy street with floor to ceiling windows - you can watch all the passersby and they can watch you while you work out so it's not made for the shy or body-conscious. more
