I have been going to Miekos Edmonds for 3 yrs now and did hire a trainer when I first started. The gym is perfect for me, seeing it is so close to home, it offers everything I need for a great workout from the free weights, cardio equip. and especially the classes. They offer classes for all levels of fitness, I love Julie's classes she is very knowledgeable and knows everyone by name her anecdotes keep the classes fun and enjoyable.
In terms of the staff, I find them all to be very friendly and they greet me by my name every time I go.
The trainers I have worked with have been excellent and I am only on my second trainer after the first one left to move to another location. I have seen my trainer go out of her way to correct someone who was using some equip. incorrectly even though she was not a client. There are a several trainers who have been there since I signed up not the high turn over as other reviewers have mentioned. Never have I felt pressured into signing up for the personal training. Furthermore, I had a small issue with Precor-not the trainers- and the issue was resolved very quickly.
