I am not very impressed with this gym. First of all, it's a problem to get help, even an orientation, without hiring a personal trainer. I've worked out for years, but at a new gym, people need to be shown around, I would think they'd want this to prevent people from getting injured. Next, if you join, be very cautious about having all the fees quoted to you. They expect you to pay first and last month's dues, a joining fee, plus an ""annual maintenance fee"" when you join, that's a lot of money up front. If you sign a 1-year contract, the dues are a bit less. Of course, the only way you can pay is bank draft so they hold your checking account hostage for the duration of your membership. These things may be okay for some people, but not for me.
