I love Zum. I was intimidated to go at first. It was so nice looking that I thought that it meant snobby and pretentious, but I was COMPLETELY wrong. I have never been at a gym where everyone was so nice and down to earth. After my tour, I met a trainer Kathryn who invited me to her class the next day. I was scared to go, but I gave my word so I went. Kathryn remembered me, and the class totally kicked my butt and I joined the next week. The thing I love the most is that people really go to the gym to work out. I have been a member of 24 hour fitness and was a loyal member of Gold?s. I hated the meat-market feel, that people were more interested in how they looked or that they looked like they knew what they were doing more than working out itself. I also hated that it was so busy; I could never use the equipment I wanted. Zum is completely the opposite, its nice people who care about taking care of their health-not just how they look in their clothes. I am a younger member of the gym, and I was shocked at what some older members of the gym could do, they were more fit and strong than my 20s self. The most important part is the trainers know their stuff, and they care about you. Kathryn is amazing! My father played football professionally and is a football coach, and I was an athlete, so I came with a solid foundation?Kathryn worked muscles I didn?t know I had, and I do things my father is impressed with, that?s saying something. Lastly, it is more expensive, but my health is worth it. They also have discounts for groups, my company signed up, and I get a really good discounted rate.
Pros: staff knowledge, great facilities, clean, nice- good natured memebers who go to work out
Cons: may have parking problems rarely
