I have been wit hballys since 1994. AN Since I only pay $19.00 a month, I don't plan to go to another gym and pay over 80 dollars. I trave lalot and Yest I have had some instances of theft. In Union city, They stole 20. It happened in Chicago, Florida, and St.louis. I guess you just have to be careful.

I completely understand, its hard to find another gym especially when your already in a 3 year contract. I have never had a problem wih the staff or theft, but I do understand the complaint about the men. Its disgusting when your working out and people are whistling at you. It makes me uncomfortable. I am studying to be a Doctor and I dress conservatively. There is no reason why anyone should feel that they are entitled to look me up and down like a piece of meat and interrupt my work out to ask me out. If I'm interested I would let you know. Either way, never bring valuables anywhere that your leaving things in a locker room. Carry your ID and maybe a cc, with your gym card in your ipod case. Wear it with you while you work out, or like 10-20 bucks cash with id in locker room. As far as the men are concerned I just blast my ipod the moment I walk in until the moment I leave now and pay no mind to anyone including the men talking to me. I rather them think I am rude then think I am fresh meat or open game.

People- seriously- there are signs up that the gym isn't liable and not to bring valuables. I don't bring anything valuable with me. I live close too so I opt to shower at home most of the time rather than be in the locker room. I walk in, work out, watch my things mind, my business and walk out. If people look, yeah sometimes I notice, but usually I'm too focused on my work out. I track my heart rate more than the number of times I'm sized up. So ladies- focus.

So, it doesn't draw the most sophisticated group, but it drew me, so I deal with it because in the end "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" people. I do miss my overpriced gym with the neat, courteous staff, but in this economy, I'm glad I have a place close, with good instructors and cheap rate.

If you think it's ghetto, I say - "if you aint ever been to the ghetto, don't ever come to the ghetto, cuz you wouldn't understand the ghetto, so stay ---- out"... Its crowded enough anyway!

I have been going to the Union Bally's for several months without incident. My biggest complaint was that no one put the weights back, and that the leather on the machines is cracked and ripped. That aside it was the least expensive, and all I could afford.
Yesterday my phone was stolen. I heard it was the third phone stolen that day.
It is annoying. Bally's could solve this problem if they had a camera in the locker room and taped the day. Headquarters should know about the problems, and help this Bally meet at least minimum standards.....if nothing else.

Really, everyone in the gym stares at everyone. The muscle heads in the Union gym have been very nice to me, in fact all the members have been pleasant. Why have a sour face? Just go about your business. No one really cares if you are there or not.....really. just put the weights away when you are done.

I'm so glad I prepaid thru Dec 2014. The new owner, LA Fitness said I can use the gym till the end of this month. Then I can sign up with them at their much higher rate and access only that gym. Not a good way to encourage new members. Bally corporate doesn't answer phones. Totally screwed. Too bad - I like that gym, like the "brotherhood," people are decent, never heard one guy whistle at a female. I also live 5 minutes away and shower at home, never bring valuables into locker room, never had a problem.

.

What does being a "white female" have to do with working out???? Or with men staring? I think we stare at any good looking woman, regardless if she's black, tan, brown, or pale. You sound overly concerned and delusional about yourself and what it is that men want. We are there working out, if ANY gorgeous woman is near, we look. Give a logical reason or stop sending uneducated comments. You sound...crazy. Truth is, the staff is immature mostly. The gym I predominantly Spanish(of all races. You'll probably see a frekin Asian Hispanic there) But it is Ballys. And Ballys isn't The Equinox in Nyc so quit complaining because they probably were staring at you because you looked silly in your scantily clad "workout" suit.

The gym is.... Ok. It is dirty and equipment is constantly out of order. I personally could care less because I go there work out get the job done and leave. The only thing that irks me is the fact that the staff is rude. Specially this women that works at the front desk; if I only knew her name. I swear if I was able to put a complaint to the manager I would, but they wouldn't do anything either way. AND gymboybully I completely agree with your comment towards "white female" she's just ignorant, poor girl.
