I thought of this gym as the lesser of two evils - Platinum was the same price, but didn't have a pool, and Health Zone, which had a pool, was way too expensive. A swimming pool was a plus for me because I like to swim for exercise. The variety of classes that Aspen has are great, and they usually have one or two that you can go to after work. However, the ladies fitness room is ALWAYS crowded after 5 o'clock, and there is usually at least one weight machine in there that doesn't work. Don't bother going out into the main area to look for a free treadmill either - they're all taken. If you find a free one, it's probably broken. Cleaning the machines are left up the gym patrons - you certainly won't see any Aspen employees doing such menial labor, as they're all too busy hanging out at the front desk.
