The Sports Club LA is the premiere fitness center in Los Angeles. The facility is simply amazing. They take great care of the place and it shows. Yes, it is a bit pricey (they just increased the dues again this year), but you get what you pay for. Staff is always attentive and courteous. The food offered at the restaurant and cafe is healthy and delicious. Most importantly, the fitness equipment is well-maintained and many units are always available. Sure, you can save some money going to a Ballys, but be prepared to wait hours for an available treadmill. There is an olympic size pool, a full basketball court with leagues available, racquetball courts, and even an open air paddle tennis court on the roof. The best part of the pool is they use some advanced filtration system instead of chlorine, so your eyes don't burn and you don't smell like pool the rest of the day. They even have attendants walking around the cardio machines offering ice water for free from their trays. They also offer numerous group exercise classes which run throughout the day. I have no idea what the below reviewers are complaining about. Ray is absolutely professional, and he took care of my concerns immediately. And are you seriously complaining because you don't spot celebrities when you work out. What are you there for? Go to the Beverly Hills location for that, not the Sepulveda one.
Pros: Excellent and attentive staff. Nicely maintained equipent and facility.
Cons: Costly, but if you can afford it, you need to check it out.
