Group Fitness Classes Are Disorganized and Too Social 10/26/2011

Moved in from our of state and enrolled in Bally's. I would have opted for the 7-day pass but because I did not have TX residency established had to sign up. Needed to work out. Specifically asked the manager of the instructors for the group classes were certified and was told yes. However, I have now attended two classes and they both failed to provide much, if any, of a workout. The first class the instructor was a little more busy with socializing before and during the class instead of starting the class on time and instructing. The instructor played the same song for 50 minutes straight and did not instructor the class as described on Bally's website. the same routine was instructed for 50 minutes. The following day was supposed to be a group power lifting class with 10 different songs. However, there was no organization to the instruction and bicep curls consisted of 20 repetitions total and we were required to hold the bar in a manner that would definitely cause injury. The instructor provided more relaxation after every 20 reps and the muscle groups were mixed and mingled with upper and lower body. Very disorgainzed. The was no cool down period either. there were many major muscle groups missed. Having spent the last two years going to group classes with certified instructors and comparing to what I endured in these two classes was quite apparent that the instructors were not trained or certified and made up the routine as they went along. Most definitely looking for another gym that offers group classes with certified and organized trainers. Any suggestions out there? more

Crime at Marbach Road location 9/18/2010

There is a lot of crime at this Locations - and Bally's refuses to post any warnings for its members.\r Make sure your vehicle has an alarm.\r Make sure your locker has a strong lock.\r Make sure you don't hang around in the parking lot at night, unless you're a big guy.\r The managemnt know the issues but say that Corporate won't let them post any warnings. more

  • The Scene
    Most Ballys stick to the basics for their design. Televisions broadcast silently above multiple rows of cardio machines; mirrored walls act as the primary decorative components....
