Does anyone go to LA East? I was thinking about joining but heard that it was just a bunch of snobby people. Any suggestions?

Its not bad I am a member I wish they would fix the treadmills though it seems like half of them are always broke down. Also I am the furthest from a snob I dont socialize I work out but people there are nice

No I go there all the time. The people seem fine, I don't socialize while I work out either. I go to work out and thats it. They do need to put a little money into treadmills and ellipticals though. All in all its a good place to work out and most of the time it isn't that crowded.

They will bill you for a yearly maintenance fee, which is supposed to be for new equipment, remodeling, etc...however, that never happens. Half the treadmills are always broken.

If you are interested in joining a fitness center def be sure and take a look at Bodyworks. The employees there are super friendly and very helpful and the ppl who workout there seem to be a little less on the "snotty" side than the ppl at LA East. Just my own personal observation.

Just a little curious, how do you come to the conclusion that the people are "snotty"?

Thanks for the input! I checked it out and they're running a membership special right now & I think it's definitely worth a shot for the price!

LA East is a terrific gym. The members are friendly and the staff are all friendly and VERY helpful. They have a variety of classes PLUS they offer CrossFit.. No other gym in the area has this. If you are looking for a good rehab facility BW is good but a gym it doesn't really have the "feel". LA East is also open on Sundays, you should check it out!

Not to take anything away from LA East, but they are not the only Crossfit gym in the area. The Crossfit in Oak Hill has been established for 3 years and actually has much more experienced trainers. LA East however, has a much larger regular gym area and more equipmaent.

The equipment needs replaced, especially the treadmills, but they keep spending the maintenance fee that we pay every year on TRX and Crossfit. The owner doesn't care about making the customers happy. He and his wife have full time jobs and the gym is just a toy.

Been a member for about 7 yrs..Not the best equipment, but a great gym overall..Most people need to stop b*tchin and get their as$ in the gym to work out/exercise..that fancy, new equipment is not going to make you any thinner/stronger. Price is definatley fair. I plan on keeping mine for a lifetime..dont even care if i ever move!

if you are listneing, just fix some dumb bells..lets have a member day or something one morning to do some minor repairs on a weekend..5 people would be more than enough!

Would that be John Eye? Really, you don't even know who you are talking about so why would you get on here and talk about somebody? By the way, it's douche!

First of all...the gym is not just a toy for the owner. He really loves that place. They have excellent rates and hours if you compare them to the other gyms in the area. Yes, there are problems with some of the equipment, but there are a lot of members who cause the problems with the equipment. Nobody that works there ever seems "snotty". They do however like for the members to "respect" things and for some reason people don't like being called out when they are behaving as children and not adults.
