Great environment, clean, and very nice/helpful workers. A lot of diverse ppl w/ no intimidation. The only thing they def need is a heavy bag or too.

THERE IS NO SAUNA!! IT HAS GOT TO BE SOME KIND OF SICK JOKE, YET THEY FIND ENOUGH ROOM FOR A WHOLE TANNING BED AREA AND A MOVIE THEATRE!!!!YES A MOVIE THEATRE , BUT NO FUCKING SAUNA OR STEAM ROOM! SAUNA AND STEAM ROOM SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOP PRIORITY OVER TANNING BEDS AND THEATRE, I WOULD HAVE PAID 10_20 DOLLARS MORE PER MONTH IF THEY HAD JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS!!

Go to Bally's if your looking for a sauna. And those steam rooms and sauna's are disgusting. Good luck

Liked it enough when I went mid-days, switched to normal hours and it's a nightmare.

Parking is a disaster, clients leave something to be desired...

Then forget it when you cancel your membership, just wait to see the hoops they make you jump through.

Never again!

I LEFT Retro Fitness and I joined Image 2000/Image Planet in Union NJ! There is no comparison in the 2! Retro Fitness was just a waste of time,money & energy! Too crowded/Noisy!! It's impossible to park your car and I have actually been towed twice. It's so overcrowded inside you cant get on any of the machines and if you're lucky enough to get on them, somebody is hassling you to leave. If you're looking for help, forget about that. The front desk staff is more interested in texting and using their cell phones than helping. A friend of mine told me about image 2000/image Planet and we joined there about 3 weeks ago. OMG, what a difference!
Plenty of parking & not overcrowded. I can get on any machine I want to anytime. The place is impeccably clean and the staff is very attentive. I brought in my retro card and they gave me a discount! What good is paying 19/month if you cant even work out?!

I found a better place. I'm tired of not being able to find a parking space. I'm tired of waiting to get on the equipment.I'm tired of the music blasting! I'm tired of the ghetto environement! I found a great place right down the roadImage 2000/Image Planet Health Club in Union, NJ. Plenty of parking, great equipment, great classes, no lines! I brought my Retro Card in and theygave me a discount.

LOYAL RETRO MEMBER

I have been a member of Retro Kenilworth since day one and i have never had any of these problems that I am reading of. Yes parking is a little crazy some nights, but its crazy at any gym at that time! The enviorment is NOT ghetto at all, what does that even mean? I have never waited in line for a machine. As for the front desk staff?? I have never met a more friendly and outgoing staff. People should stop copy and pasting negative reviews onto every site about all the gyms in the area..from what I heard, Image 2000 is going out of business..who even goes there anymore?
