★★★★★ I've been working out at this gym for 5 years. I wouldn't recommend it. I stayed there just because I live right next to it.
Here's a list of things I have been annoyed by.
The treadmills are all broken, but you can't always know it in advance. At least 3 of them have a broken speed button, which lets you increase speed only. I've seen people get really pissed trying to decrease the speed at the end of their 15km/h interval, frantically pressing the broken button while running. It's a very unpleasant surprise.
There are two pairs of clamps for the whole upper floor. It's been like this for years. If you're not someone who benches without clamps, good luck finding free clamps. Clamps cost like 8$/pair, so there's no excuse on their part. We all pay 56$ per year for maintenance. Where is this money going? For a gym that charges a total of 93$ per month after all costs, you'd expect to have clamps.
Courses are all in English. Shame on you if you are an actual French Canadian. They will sometimes ask if everyone is OK with English courses, if you're not, the course will still be in English and you'll feel a little unwelcome.
I remember Cynthia Benoit (personal trainer) telling me to use another machine because she needed mine for her personal workout with a friend. I'll never forget that. Even though I refused (I can't share because they were doing 2 girls x 2 legs), but they went anyway so I just walked away, embarrassed.
The same 5 songs on repeat, and also they close the music a huge 45 minutes before closing.
Broken shower handles, broken machine handles and bars.
For a gym that charges 68$ per month, 250$ subscription fee, and 56$ of maintenance fee, for a total of about 93$/month, you can find a lot better. It's not that bad, it's just very average, especially considering the whopping 1100$ per year.
Oh and lastly, it costs 23$ if you want to invite a friend to workout with you. That's ridiculously expensive.
