Good: Big Vanilla has the potential to be an amazing gym, FOR ALL!! Unfortunately, Big Vanilla willingly discriminates against individuals whom only utilize the free weight room....

ATTENTION FREE WEIGHT LIFTERS 8/31/2011

Good: Big Vanilla has the potential to be an amazing gym, FOR ALL!! Unfortunately, Big Vanilla willingly discriminates against individuals whom only utilize the free weight room. Multiple complaints have been submitted to the current managment (prior management as well) regarding the safety and condition of the dumbells and smiths machines. Their answer to our complaints, buy flat screen televisions, used strictly for advertising, and put them in every nook and cranny.. Bad: Now on to things i dont like. Big Vanilla has recently roped off areas of the gym, recently were open to all, only to be used by individuals who pay to be trained. TO ALL THOSE THAT PAY FOR THIS SERVICE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU NO LONGER NEED A PERSONAL TRAINER AND STOP PAYING FOR THEIR SERVICES. WILL YOU STILL BE ALLOWED TO USE THE SAME EQUIPMENT?. Improvements: We would like to see Big Vanilla: Invest in their free weight room. Stop trying to push out individuals who have a passion for fitness. DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 14 TO ENTER INTO THE LOCKER ROOM UNATTENDED. Stop promoting Big Vanilla as a 'Disney World' style gym and start focusing on the health and safety of ALL.. Other: It is obvious Big Vanilla wants to push out all clients that only use free weights and eventually get rid of the entire free weight room. @$#& That. Lets make that room into an old school hardcore gym. All it takes is a few of us to change the atmosphere. Intimidate the Masses!!!. more

I LOVE IT! 3/24/2011

Big Vanilla is a great place to workout. I love being a member here. Other health clubs don't come close to comparing. The staff is so friendly and there are tons of amenities. The pools are fantastic. I would never bother being a member of any other gym in md. Love it at Big V. more

You'll LOVE Big V! 12/6/2010

As soon as you walk into this gym you can just feel the energy and it motivates you for your workout. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. The facility is huge and state of the art. The pools are awesome and open year round. There is a kids club and huge cafe area that i enjoy a smoothie in post workout. This place blows all the other gyms in MD out of the water. Big Vanilla is the best health club I have ever been to. Not only is it extremely spacious and clean, everyone is so friendly. Big v provides such a warm and inviting atmosphere for all ages. It is a great place for families and extremely kid friendly, but it also is a fun place to work out with your friends. I love the fitness classes and i work with a trainer a couple times a week. Love everything about this club. more

Big V-Arnold 8/17/2009

Would not recommend this place. All they want is your money. When I was pregnant 5 years ago they wouldn't let me suspend the membership. We just let it run out. Very poor customer service. Unfriendly staff. more
