Instructors and class schedules change too frequently. Poor sound system and not enough equipment. Look for another gym.

SLIM CHICKS ROCK

I have been a member over 5 years and love it!!! There is no gym like this and I have joined gyms before. They have great classes, greeat equipment and keep adding more, They have expanded 3 times since I have been a member and they are expanding again. They have great staff and good variety. They have a lot of cool classes too. AND they keep adding more. I have been so successful and I am so grateful. What gym do you know has Girls Nights every month where they cook you a healthy dinner and all us girls get to hang out and get some me time. This club has surpassed all my expectations and you will not be dissapointed. I assume Work Out Chick who posted that retarded comment(who funny enough has CHICK in her title) must be from a competitor gym

A great club

I have only been a member for a year but I really love the personalized attention. It is so clean too. I don't take classes but I love working out with all the equipment. They just added kettlebells and ropes. They have really helped me. They really have a good thing going. Sounds like I have to check out a Girls Night they sound fun. I did the MS Walk they sponsored. Wish there were more Slim Chicks Fitness for my sister in Florida.

I have been a member for two years now and love the atmosphere, workouts and encouragement I receive at this gym.

For my wedding I lost 20 pounds and a LOT of inches in 5.5 months. I attribute this to the caring staff who offered their knowledge and expertise in fitness whenever I needed it.

As a rebuttal to the people who complained about the sound system and space, well the sound system has been fixed and the gym is expanding as I type.

To me, Slim Chicks has been the most rewarding gym I have ever joined.

This gym has not only kept me in shape, but gotten me through the worst time of my life. Everyone I have met at this wonderful establishment has been encouraging and so supportive. The owners are genuine and wonderful. I am devastated that I will be moving and won't have the opportunity to see everyone and enjoy all the wonderful things this gym brings to my life. I drive 25 mins to get here bc I couldn't imagine finding any better place with great classes and great equipment. It is not just a gym, it's a place of healing! <3

I all ready put a post up but for some reason it didn't take. Slim Chick at another gym is full of crap!!!! First of all, how do you know it was not you child doing the things you explained? If you had any problem you should have went to the owner and not post it on a blog, especially when you have the nerve to show your face back at the same gym. Your blog name is incorrect.
Second, Slim Chicks fitness is a wonderful gym. They have great employees, equipment, classes and trainers. I have been at this gym for over a year and never experienced one like this. You make friends here other gyms you do not. Stevie is a great person and you could talk to her about anything.
Third, the kids room is not unsafe and it is clean. I have seen the toys cleaned, floor vaccumed and cleaned, etc. I leave my 2 kids in there all the time and never worry.
I would and have recommend this gym to anyone I know!!!

I have been a member at Slim Chicks Fitness since it's inception as a franchise in a much smaller location. Absolutely love this place!!!The owner has worked very hard to build upon an idea she had to make women feel pampered,offer exercise programs that works for them & keeps them motivated. This gym has tripled in size over the years & tries to make us all still feel special despite growing into a larger gym. As with any business that grows it has had it's growing pains & they have continually addressed issues that may have risen along the way.
Every time I walk into Slim Chicks I am greeted by one of the staff, be it a front desk person, a trainer, an instructor, or the owner herself. I always see staff wiping down equipment, & cleaning, anytime I take classes the instructors encourage clients to wipe down any of the mats used during the class, don't know how much more a gym can do as far as cleanliness.
I've found in my years of going to gyms anything more than a 45 minute class is a waste, most gyms end up just fluffing up the class to fill the old school class style of an hour. Slim Chicks has a get in, make it count, & make the best of your time attitude that I love. So I happen to love that the classes are only 45 minutes!!
I love the training program at Slim Chicks Fitness, yes this is an additional cost on top of my membership, but the last I checked at any gym personal training is always an additional cost. Slim Chicks does offer a monthly program change with a trainer to members included with their membership however.
As with any business I have seen disgruntled employees & members come & go, & they are usually the only ones posting about any business. Us happy people have better things to do with our time, but I happened to come across this site & felt compelled to write about how much I love this place. I would hate for women to see the negative posts & miss out what could be the best thing that ever happened to them. I have received so much as a member & have had results like I never saw before joining. Unfortunately some people will never be happy no matter what you do for them. I've also seen may people rejoin after realizing there really is no where out there that offers what Slim Chicks offers. I love it & plan on never leaving!!!

WE WORK VERY HARD TO HAVE AN AWESOME FACILITY...600 clients agree!!! WE WILL BE EXPANDING OUR FACILITY THIS SUMMER which ironically includes showers...AND a lot of other fantastic amenties.
THE BEST WAY FOR YOU TO DECIDE IS TO COME SEE IT and do a free trial.
DO NOT let problem staff who were released from their position and be taken to court for Slander, effect you - come talk to MY CLIENTS!!!
Many points in this email are so untrue!!!!
WE NOT ONLY KEEP OUR EQUIPMENT VERY CLEAN BUT WE OFFER WIPES- you did not get the ringworm here (especially on your back under your shirt)
CLIENTS LOVE OUR CLASSES SO MUCH WE ADDED MORE THIS MAY!!Classes are on a Extra Padded Wood Floor.
AND while we have more cardio equipment than listed (AND MORE ON ITS WAY) we encourage you to get your cardio while strength training -check out our Kettlebells and other fantastic equipment.
WE WANT OUR CLIENTS TO BE EFFECTIVE WITH THEIR TIME
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CLIENT WAIT FOR THE CARDIO EQUIPMENT!!!Of course equipment sometimes needs mantainence but its really rare!!! We have a superb guy that orders the parts ASAP and installs them as soon as they are in...we will put a workout in its place for the few days of delay.
As for the Contest, we are very proud at how many lives we have changed. While we only advertise a 1st prize, we do give out additional prizes!!! And this last round was no exception (if you were there, you would know this) SLIM CHICKS FITNESS always gives beyond what is expected FOR ALL CONTESTS!!!
We are closed on Sundays! We would love it if you kept Holy the Sabath and Sunday was a true day of rest...
We used to open later on Saturdays but no one would come- we take FEEDBACK very seriously so if clients want us open later- they just need to tell us... most of our clients are busy moms who have to sneak in early for a sat workout - by avoiding being wasteful and opening when clients didn't need us, we were able to put in a second earlier fitness class!
Lastly, I do serve the water at room temp, it certainly is not hot water. That wouldn't make sense. WE ARE NOT REQUIRED TO OFFER THIS SERVICE. We have bottles of water for sale. ITS JUST SOMETHING WE DO NOT BE NICE.
We also currently offer towels service but with clients often accidentally taking towels home instead of the laundry so our supply has needed replacment. THIS IS A FREE SERVICE THAT WE OFFER TO PAMPER OUR CLIENTS!!!
SIGN UP TODAY FOR A FREE TRIAL SO YOU CAN COME SEE THIS AWESOME FACILITY AND SEE IF SLIM CHICKS IS RIGHT FOR YOU!!
GO TO OUR WEBSITE and click on the link to our ONLINE SCHEDULER (you will notice the system IS NOT DOWN...not sure what she is referring to... I am not aware of it ever going down)

Will you just leave Stevie alone! You are really wrong and got some kind of wild beef-YOU ARE THE ONE STIRRING THE DRAMA-take it elsewhere!I have known Stevie for years. She has a great club and an GREAT reputation!!! Nothing is ever perfect but seriously, this place is not only the best I have seen but it only gets better. I spoke to a lady who had left Slim Chicks because people were telling her there was a cheaper gym and she came right back. You get soo much for your money here. And the staff cares! Gretchen is amazing and she has been on staff longer than I have been a member.
I have watched Slim Chicks grow from a small studio to this awesome facility. I hear the new place is really incredible! All I can say to anyone who reads this- Is go check it out yourself. When something is this good- you do not want to miss it.
I have put my kids in the kids room. I have a set of "spirited" twins. Its a ton better than other gyms I have been to and they are always cleaning.
I am rooting for Slim Chicks! You go girls. See you friday night at Girls Night- can't wait

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have had nothing but a wonderful experience @ Slim Chicks. I don't know what the people that are complaining are smoking, but they are DEAD WRONG. From the time I walk in until the end of my workout I am treated so wonderfully. The staff is accomodating, the facility is clean, and the members are great. I think some people BITCH just to BITCH! You can definitely tell that the negative people here just like to hide behind their keyboards and have NO LIFE. I for one have a better life due to the fact I have Slim Chicks for all my workout needs!

This is the worst gym I have EVER been to. The equipment is absolutely terrible and is barely functional. The classes are horrible, useless and completely unprofessional. I can't even begin to describe my anger at the FAKE and bubbly attitude of the owner. Everything in this shoddy space is a weird sales pitch with conflicting messages and stupid pink decorations. Really? Do they think woman are that brain dead as consumers? PLEASE do not waster your hard earned money on this CRAP.
