I am on edge everytime I go to workout because I know there is MRSA in the gym that I go to. They have made attempts to clean it up, but have so far been unsuccessful. I have contacted the health dept. The problem persists.

Not the MFC, it is the gym that is located east of WalMart, (behind WalMart). I feel on Edge and cannot relax while I am in there working out, and it causes my back to hurt. This will probably be my last week there because of this issue.

EDGE Fitness? If you are going to anonymously accuse a company of a serious problem, at least be straight forward about it. Geez. People who didn't catch your little 'clue' might think you were talking about a different gym who hasn't done anything wrong.

This is probably not true, Barry and I checked all ten of the gyms for MRSA that we were considering for membership a couple years ago. This one had a small MRSA count. We both work in a hospital lab and so to get samples and do testing was not a challenge. The other nine gyms had similar MRSA counts but we chose this one because it is close to home and has some of the hottest dudes. May as well have fun while staying fit!!

Jim and Barry, Is there any way you could do a recheck on EDGE fitness? The reason I ask is that Paul and I are looking for a gym to join and as we are both HIV positive and have comprimised immune systems. We used a free week membership at EDGE a while back and we thought we would join. It is very important to us that we are in a very clean enviroment. Any MRSA infections could be life threatening to either one of us. How could we find out about the cleanliness of any of the gyms or fitness centers around the Nixa MO area?

MRSA is not the only issue with EDGE fitness center. The owners 17 year old HS drop Out goes through the membership information to find houses to break into. He is at home all day with nothing to do excpt sell pot and break into gym members houses. I know because we go to his house a couple of times a week to buy weed. he brags about having access to all the personal info that is collctd from people who are members of the gym, including some nixa cops. Its pathetic, he sells for a high price he does not have to brake into places for extra income.

My 32 year old son is a member of this fitness center. He was just recently diagnosed with a mrsa infection, We believe he acquired the methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria at this facility. He plans to have them inspected by the Christian Co Health Dept, and is checking on health regulations pertaining to fitness centers in MO and this area in particular. Are any Topix users aware of the rules regarding health in the fitness centers in MO. Are the gymns inspected for this type of thing.

It's a filthy pit. We have used our trial memberships in three of the area gyms and desired to be as far from that location as possible. Beware

I now own Edge Fitness since July 2013 and it's a lot cleaner and professional than when Sheila owned it. Please give us another try. I'm a certified personal trainer and I have an MBA - I totally get why people were turned off by it before.
