Elk Grove 24 Hour Fitness has MAJOR P...

The main issue that many people have with the overall disruptions are the "blacks causing trouble". This is completely true 100% at 24 hr fitness and in society as a whole. 24 hour fitness and the blacks causing trouble is just a reflection of how they act in society as a whole. Yes, for the most part blacks are a bunch of loud mouthed knuckle dragging monkies that want to throw their poop at society in general. 24 Hour fitness needs to ban all blacks from their premises and all of the problems and crime will go away. They reserve the right to refuse service to anyone including colored people.

First I want to say the derogatory terms are not necessary; however, I agree with the African American problems. Blacks and basketball equals problems, and any 24hr fitness is a great example. Florin, Elk Grove, and Stockton have more fighting and talking then playing. Roseville, Rocklin, and Folsom not the same. You tell me what the common denominator is? I have been to all and the only difference is skin color. I have since canceled my membership to join Family Fitness. For those of you looking for better competition then 24hr without the threats and fighting try Rocklin Family fitness. And unlike 24hr you need a membership to play there.

The only fitness club i would ever join would be month to month, no contract. With month to month, the club needs to work hard so you will return the next month, with these contracts, once you join, they don't care about you anymore.

I have been working out at 24 hour fitness. First, enough of the racism. There are hot Indian guys there, hot hispanic guys there, hot Asian guys there, cute white guys... and yeah, um, some pretty girls. Then there are fat chicks. I am one of the fat chicks. Maybe you will see me. I am not going to go into detail about myself, because I've been there more lately, and have lost 14 lbs in the past month. If I want to continue working out there, I better keep my identity as private as possible. Unless any of you don't care and you will simply leave me alone. lol
I weigh myself at least two or three times when I work out. I do cardio, some weights... as much as I can. The gym is my lifeline. I am still fat, but hopefully the gym will help me lose more weight, and can help me learn to love my body. Don't be racist or arrogant. We are all there because we all care about ourselves. That is all that matters. Forget the rest, drop the judgement, and be like family. Alright? See you all tonight at the gym.
I'm glad you're doing well! One female at my work lost >50lbs in about a year. She did it with a consistent exercise habit. She looks great and she's always full of energy. For her going to the gym is equivalent to some folks going out of their way to catch an hour long TV show.... it becomes a rewarding habit after a while!

I go in the mornings, more *polite* professionals seems like, and people are very aware of their timing... not sitting around slurping frappuchinos while on a fat buster machine!

BTW, the racist comments are dumb.... there are quite a few morons from every ethnicity there.

I would venture one's microculture (race based or not) tends to steer one's character in the early years. Hopefully responsibility will cure them of that.

24 Hour Fitness-Elk Grove, CA (Sheldon Road) This is the worst managed gym we ever been to. My wife and I are members with 24 hour Fitness for more than 15 years. We worked out almost all the 24 Hour gyms on the West Coast because our work involve alot of traveling. We both workout frequently. We now reside in Elk Grove, CA for 7 years. We own a home and pay property taxes. When we go to our local gym we notice alot of gang members who are not paying members use the basketball court frequently. We notice some fights, foul language and some of them soliciting/selling fake gym passes in the parking lot. Almost all of them do not live in Elk Grove.
A security person watches the front entrance of the basketball court but he is not making a difference. Maybe due to fear?
Decent paying members are complaining and want something to be done. We would like to see a new mangement take over 24 Hour Fitness to enforce the clubs rules and have the basktball courts closed so the riffraff would go somewhere else. Our neighborhood has seen crime problems increase the last thing we want to is to go to the gym and see non paying members or gangs using the facilities creating a tense atmosphere!
If you are a member of 24 hour fitness and want to make a difference please email/phone the main office and complain. WE WANT OUR GYM/NEIGHBORHOOD BACK!! The website is: 24hourfitness.com . Phone number:(800)432-6348.
why don't you complain to your boy Jim Cooper or his trained poodle Sophie the mormon

it really is a police problem

Real thugs don't play sports. They are all "wannabes" if you can find them doing anything productive. Maybe the problem with the gym is because there is a bunch of low income people in that area and along with that comes the ignorant people who take advantage of that low income status therefore acts of ignorance follow. They have dreams of being like "pop stars" who glamorize the ignorant life style with vulgar language and misplaced pride. Is it really a surprise? Sadly not to many. If something is to be done it will be up to the paying members. You just have to take a stand against it and do something about it. If I have to tell you what to do it wouldn't even be worth action. For every cause there is an effect.
Its too expensive anyways

I've never had an issues at either of the guys, but I go to the one off calvine anyways. However, since I used to pay 19.99 AND now pay 29.99 I am dumping the gym and doing the exercise on my own. I must admit that I have never accused someone of being something unless they told me they were that themselves. I am not a gang member, and I think gangs are a little out dated. I suppose just try talking to the management, but don't assume all that play basketball are gang members. I don' t think people in the NBA are gang members. Let use a little common sense people. I can't believe this type of stereo typing still goes on. I hope I have never worked out next to any of the racist complainers that are on this page.

Good luck to the normal people who tend not to over react.

Obvious you have never been to any sporting event in person if your complaining about curse words... get off your high horses

Got a auto camera ticket in EG for crossing over the line on a right turn. Ticket me that's fine but the fine and how I got caught is a real ripoff.
$470 for the ticket
$57 for traffic admin fee
$X for actual traffic school
Total will be around $660
That's really high, in fact so high I am going to avoid Elk Grove at all costs.
So should you.
A friend said he got $1000 in traffic tickets in the past year.

It's why the local police departments need to go, we already have county cops, why don't we all work together and have one big fair department? Instead we have little money hungry news hungry departments run by people that couldn't run a kool aid stand.

I understand your concern and your qualms, "ELK GROVE CITIZEN," but you're bashing the wrong gym. The 24 Hour fitness that is located on Bruceville Road and Center Parkway is the only gym that has a basketball court that is CLOSE to Elk Grove. You state to be an Elk Grove resident for a hefty amount of time, although your boundaries are a bit off between Sacramento and Elk Grove.

The Elk Grove 24 Hour Fitness located on Elk Grove Florin (which is the ONLY 24 Hour in Elk Grove at this time), is wonderful. Always clean, the members practice proper workout etiquette, are extremely friendly, and I truly believe that this is initially portrayed by the staff.

This may be just a teeny tiny mixup, Mr. ELK GROVE CITIZEN, but you may want to make sure you're talking about the right information the next time. Those who may not be familiar with the Elk Grove/Sacramento boundaries will read your rant and unfortunately associate our city with your perception of unavoidable, uncontrollable gang members and violence.

Thank you.

Let's just all face the fact that black people have for all intensive purposes destroyed this 24 hour fitness center. This also goes for any city or any THING they touch or reside in.

I hope they don't reopen it in that location after this fire. It was a fire waiting to happen or a shooting waiting to happen.
