I joined LA Fitness last February and was not disappointed with the facility nor the staff. Everyone was friendly and the facility was clean. Kevin was my personal trainer and he is wonderful. O'neil gave me a few personal training sessions as well. O'neil is tough, but will make you sweat and work hard. After getting to know most of the training staff there, I can attest that O'neil is a very pleasant and hard working individual and an asset to LA Fitness. Yes he may have a past history that is unnerving, but he was young and made a mistake. To those who frown upon LA Fitness for hiring him.. I wonder do you know who your neighbors are? Do you know the past of all the strangers that you encounter everyday... the ones that care for your children, cut your lawn, pack your grocery bags and wipe the asses of your parents that you put in nursing homes? I don't think so. So give a guy a second chance and stop being self righteous.

I have been a member at this LA Fitness for 3 years. Honestly I have almost quit a couple of times. It has always been managed poorly and not taken care of by staff. I have seen the place unclean, and I have seen the staff allow non members just to walk right in. It seems that all that has changed. The man that is managing the facility now has taken full control. The place is clean! I have seen him walking around cleaning himself and fixing machines. I took the opportunity to say hello and he is a very sincere person who seems to really care about the members needs. This gym has always had the potential to be the best in the area, I think now it is. The girl that runs the sales staff should learn member services from the new manager because she seems to need it.

I went in with a 3 day trial pass to check the place out. A salesperson greeted me and sat me down. I answered a quick survey and hr gave me a quick tour and then sat me back down to discuss memberships. Fair enough, I assumed they had a sales pitch when you come in for a trial.
However, the salespeople I dealt with, especially the Sales Manager on duty, was very aggressive and almost insulting. I worked in sales for 5 years and I saw right through all the games they play with you, trying to get you to sign up for the most expensive contract then and there. Don't fall for it!
- They tell you the 50 dollars per month rate advertised online is not for NY but is a national average, and the rates are more here in NY. This is utter BS and they are just trying to rip you off. You can sign up online for 50/month.
- They tell you your guest pass has a number on it that has a coupon to get you a better deal. Yea, Ok. You are not getting a discounted rate. At this point they give you the 50 per month rate advertised online. What a deal! yea, right
- When the salesperson is "speaking to the manager" or the manager is "making a call for you", don't think they are doing you some favor. These are common sales tricks to lure you in, thinking you are getting a deal.
- When I made it clear, after the sales manager almost took my credit card out of my hand, that I did not want to sign up at the prices they were offering, the sales manager meanly said to the salesperson "That's it, I'm not making anymore phone calls for you today," I think this was supposed to make me feel bad for the salesperson, so I would be guilted into signing up. Overall these sales tactics insulted my intelligence and gave me a bad vibe.
The sad part is I guarantee these work on a lot of people who don't have the sales background I have. Know what you are getting yourself into with this sales department. The best deal I could get out of them was 1 year paid upfront at 550 dollars, with each consecutive year at 399. They've been calling me the past few days, probably offering me an even better deal.

"a concerned guest wrote:
Boy, 4, waiting to go to church is KILLED. A 4 year old boy, sitting in his family car while waiting to go into a church, was shot in the head and killed....The suspect, Oneil Pryce, of Ozone Park, has been charged with second-degree murder....The police found the .380 semiautomatic, as well as a .38-caliber pistol and small amounts of crack and cocaine....Mr. Pryce called the police and surrendered.....
The New York Times, November 12, 1992"

Really? I guess you would also be willing to say that none of you have ever made a mistake that you regret. I am proud to say that Oneil Pryce is my personal trainer. Yes, what happened is an absolute tragedy, but might I add, for both parties. If you read the actual article from the N.Y. Times, it is stated that what happened was a complete accident. A 17 year old boy, growing up in one of the toughest parts of the city. Oneil is a 100% respectable member of our community who I can say cares more about his clients than anything in this world. He is honest with his clientele and doesn't hide from his past either. Instead, he uses it to fuel his future, which is filled with nothing but the desire to help others. Before you all jump on here and slam people you don't even know, I suggest that you consider the skeletons you may have dancing around in your own closet, or get to the gym wherever it may be because clearly, you have too much time on your hands≥.

LA Fitness Lake Grove needs to be closed or renovated after Port Jeff Station opens. Smells-carpet filthy-machines filthy and broken down-bathrooms filthy-etc. I give Lake Grove a one half out of ten. Staff sitting on counters at entrance. What used to be a model has hit the bottom.

This place it really bad!!! Just to telling you. Don't ever never trust anyone again. This place is cheating on you. Their stole your money and never regret about what their have done. I wish this place the best of f**k and disappear really soon. I feel really bad for the CEO that their can not find a better way to make money. Happy while they are sitting on a insecure people shoulder. Use kind words and face but when you fall into the trap their will treating you like sh** and don't even care. Wish you(CEO)going to hell soon. I have lost more than thousand dollars within a month and have know idea what I am paying for. Please people don't join this place. TRUST ME!!! You better off running outside than giving money to this people who have no heart and selfish.

Save yourself the heartache and anguish; don't join LA fitness. They have corporate policy of delaying and denying your request to cancel your membership. Once they have your credit card data your are hosed. I sent a cancellation letter in May. Continued to be billed. Only when I cc'd the states Attorneys General in my next mailing did they cancel. By that time I had paid number of months and then they hit me with three more months. They are crooks and you do not want to get anywhere near them.
