Best

This place is great for all of your fitness and exercise needs! The trainers are very knowledgable and approachable. And they put you through one hell of a work out. The boot camp...

Worst

I love the classes that BBT offers however they are so interested in making a quick buck by selling crazy amounts of groupon and discounted offers they do not care about creating ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/16/2013

Did not like this.....bought a Groupon and went to the 'Intro' night which is required in order to use the Groupon deal. I felt like cattle being herded through a process. Another review commented about them looking to make a quick buck and I would definitely agree. I'm curious how many people buy the deal, go to the intro and then never attend classes? The first thing I noticed when I walked in the door was the smell - sweaty and dirty - and there were literally 10 air fresheners sitting around the place. There was an evening class in session and the room looked dark and jam packed. One fella was doing some type of floor exercise and was stuck in the doorway because there was no other space for him. During the class there was a step up exercise with the step/box to step up to and there were 2 assigned per box. So one person would step up when the other person stepped down and vice versa. I'm sorry, I don't mind a busy class, but I do NOT want to be partnered up with another person and have to be in such close proximity with him/her. There were also the machines for the other type of class and it was similar - if there were too many there for the class then the 6 machines were used alternating with jogging/running in place on a mat next to the machine that way they could get 12 people in the class. And I would like to add there was NO cleaning off of the machines in between the alternating. This would probably be ok if I knew the person I was paired with, but it changes at every class. Sorry - it is just GROSS at this place. Save your money and look for something else. more

I have come to BBT off and on for over 5 yrs – I go and try videos at home, try to just walk my dog but nothing compares to the fun atmosphere and great workouts everytime I have come to BBT I have not once did the same workout twice! Just love it there!! Thanks Brittany and Melinda! more

My goals were to gain weight and increase the weight on my exercises. At the end of my VIP training I had gained 15lbs of LEAN muscle and went up about 290lbs on deadlifts! I definitely recommend Body By Todd for those trying to reach new fitness goals! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/10/2012

I had a great experience at BBT! The trainers were very proactive and considerate to my level of fitness. I was very comfortable in the workout area and challenged to new hights of fitness by the trainers and other clients, which allowed me to loose about 10 lbs within the first week while using their SpeedLoss cleanse in conjunction with healthy eating and exercise. Thanks Body By Todd! I am a very satisfied customer! more

“This is the best shape I have been in my life. If it wasn’t for the trainers at BBT, I wouldn’t have lost the \r weight and rebounded back from my divorce. They even recommended me to a chiropractor where I \r discovered I had degenerative discs in my back, where I was able to catch in time to fix the issue…….. \r TRUE PROFESSIONALS” more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/16/2012

I would have to agree with most reviews. The classes really pushes you to work hard and you will sweat alot and start to see results. However, the rooms are too small and they classes don't start on time. They say you should spend the first 15 minutes to stretch on your own but I would personally prefer they start on time.\r \r Furthermore I don't find all the workouts to be low or non impact. I have a really bad knee and several of my classes we were asked to do deep squats. Hell they even have a couple of pictures on thier website with the class in deep squat position. The squats really aggervated my knee issues. Thier non-impact advertising was the reason I even gave this place a chance. \r \r They do push thier shakes and supplements but that was only at the orientation which really should be kept to 1 hour. You have to schedule your classes online and it is sometimes hard to get into the QVR (weight training) classes for a couple weeks at a time. This can be frustrating.\r \r Overall good workouts, they just need to work at getting a larger place or sell less coupons to keep the class size and the class availabilty reasonable. I would go the groupon, living single or faveroo route for their class otherwise I would say they are really overpriced. more

This place is great for all of your fitness and exercise needs! The trainers are very knowledgable and approachable. And they put you through one hell of a work out. The boot camps are treacherous but boy are you glad you did it the next day. The best thing is that these work outs are NEVER the same so you are constantly working different muscle groups. My abs haven't been this rock hard since high school! more

Feel the Pain of a Great Workout 3/25/2012

I’ve been working out with BBT for 5+ years. I’ve participated in QVR, boot camps and private training . The BBT team is highly motivational, highly skilled and know how to get peak performance out of you, while adding muscle and reducing fat. I’ve never been pushed products nor felt pressure to buy any additional items. \r Always an enjoyable experience ( well as enjoyable as getting your butt kicked can be ) more

Body by Todd is the BEST 3/24/2012

Body by Todd is amazing! Not only are the trainers great at what they do but they're also very personable and caring. I've been coming for about a year now & they have really worked hard to upgrade their studio the whole time i've been there - I mean it was nice at first at their old location across the street but the new place is much much bigger and they keep adding things like better floor mats & fans & equipment & are going to add more changing rooms next. I was a nervous wreck before I started because I've gone to other trainers in the past who just talk a lot & didn't put me on a plan to help me lose weight. I was nervous this was going to be a really intimidating place with only really in-shape people & they weren't going to really help me. After almost a year here I would never go anyplace else!! I have never written a review for anything at all online. I took the time to write this bc Body by Todd is worth it. They deserve their props!! more

GREAT place - would highly recommend it! 3/18/2012

I've been coming to Body by Todd for 4 weeks now & have lost 9 lbs so I'm happy with the weight loss & toning results that I've seen so far. I have about 15 more lbs to lose to get to my goal weight. I bought 2 groupons at the beginning of the year & am very glad that I did (wish I'd bought a 3rd actually) because I really like the BOOTCAMP & QVR sessions & wouldn't have been able to afford to come at regular prices!! I want to continue after my groupons if I can get into the Club 100 group they have otherwise I don't think I can afford it right now :( I really like the studio - it's different than going to a gym class. I go to Jenn's QVR & Brittany's bootcamp & I've also been to Melinda's - I'm working up to trying Todd's bootcamp. Overall I really like the trainers. They make it fun otherwise I wouldn't want to go & they kick my butt every time!! I've been to gyms before where the people are nice & everything but they don't push me or really focus on helping me get to MY goal. It's TRUE that it is packed most nights so if you don't like full sessions then it's not for you. They say that the morning sessions have less people in them but I work then so I haven't come to any. You have to reserve a spot for a session so there's always room if you signed up but it gets really busy anyways. Guess everyone is getting ready for spring break... It's also true that sessions don't always start on time exactly because it's busy but my trainers always go overtime when that happens so you get what you're paying for but if you have a really tight schedule or somewhere to be right after I see why you might not like it. We were all told in the eval that the first 15 min is to warm up & stretch on our own but some people don't do that unless the trainer reminds them & makes them so they just stand around and wait when they could be doing something & burning more calories! Also I was really worried at first because there is a waitlist for a lot of sessions but I haven't had a problem - I've gotten into almost all of the sessions I requested. The protein shakes are really good too - I've had other shakes before that taste chalky or gluey & disgusting & I must say that their shakes are the best!!! Overall I really like the place but it's not for everyone like I said. As one of the groupon people I really appreciate that they did this offer because I wouldn't have tried it otherwise! more

Keep Looking for a better gym 2/23/2012

I love the classes that BBT offers however they are so interested in making a quick buck by selling crazy amounts of groupon and discounted offers they do not care about creating or maintaining a relationship. I started with BBT through a groupon loved it and joined. Now that I have joined I am constantly shut out of classes because they have sold so many deals. I have to email numerous times to get added to classes even though I am paying double or maybe triple what the discounted groupon rate was. Classes are so crowded and often times there are not enough spots or equipment for people. There is also no protocol to verify if you have in fact signed up for a class. Basically anyone can walk in take a class and not have registered for the class leaving someone who registered with out equipment and a spot in the class. more

Don't expect much 1/2/2012

BBT is all fake. Most of the trainers listed on their website don't even work there anymore. Their speedloss packages they buy at the grocery store then mark them up for a ridiculous price. They care more about how their trainers look then actually caring for the clients. Don't expect for the classes or training to start on time and for them to apologize for it. Just don't fall for their gimmicks and overpriced products and training. more

bootcamp is awesome i lost 25 lbs 12/25/2011

this place works for me - it's a private studio all the trainers know you - i was a soccer player & then gained weight in college & after. i lost 25 lbs doing the bootcamp & diet plan they give with program. i did it with my girlfriend & she lost some weight too. we both want to start back again because it's way better than a big gym where no one pushes you or cares if you come more

Don't fall for the hype 6/22/2011

Body by Todd promotes itself as private personal training, but it's really group fitness classes. The ""new, larger"" facility is mostly office space. The Bootcamp room is claustrophobic - a room that should probably have no more than 16 people regularly has 20 or more crammed in, and the QVR room isn't much better, with 2-3 people per weight bench. The classes never start on time, the staff pushes supplements, protein powders and shakes, and even merchandise that you can get at WalMart for less than half the price. Limited cardio equipment (a couple of stationary bikes in the lobby) and no open gym hours. There are no lockers, only cubbies. There are 2 single restrooms, but currently no showers. HOWEVER, the classes I've been to really have kicked my butt. If you are looking for a clean, airy, attractive facility with extensive hours and truly personal training, BBT is not for you. If you simply want an effective group workout and don't care about anything else, then BBT is a viable option. more

I'm Finally Pregnant after 5 yrs trying! 6/21/2010

My fitness journey happened by accident....We had been trying to get pregnant for over 5 years with no success. Me and my husband were overweight and out of shape and I found myself very depressed unable to conceive. I found out at BBT from a friend who lost over 70lbs so I thought I need to do something to feel better abt myself. When you go there the place is private and small and filled with busy professionals...who were just like me! I felt very comfortable and just knew they could help me after looking at all their client Success Stories on their wall! Once I went thru my health screening process they found I was eating all the wrong foods and had too high of body fat to help me get pregnant, after I lost over 35lbs and got into the best shape of my life and became a vegetarian we are now Pregnant with Twins!!! Due this Jan! They were so helpful and our dreams of starting our family are finally coming True!! Pros: Trainers are Motivating, Diet plans Work Fast! Cons: Trainers having waiting list more

Bad Experience 9/8/2008

I have worked with personal trainers and high level fitness classes for years. I tried Body by Todd because it advertises that's it's the ideal gym for busy professionals at all levels of fitness. Unfortunately, the ""conveniences"" they advertised were not delivered. Classes did not started on time, the protein shakes you pre-pay for were rarely in stock, but refunds were refused. The instructors were more interested in socializing and pushing product than getting their classes started. Don't waste your time with Body by Todd. Pros: small gym Cons: terrible customer service more
