Burn Fitness! The customer service is outstanding and as others mentioned, they always greet you by name and are extremely friendly. The equipment is new and top-notch and the gym is always very clean. The group exercise classes are fantastic and the instructors are very knowledgeable. We highly recommend Burn Fitness!

Burn Fitness, off Adams between Auburn and M-59. The equipment is top notch, the place always looks immaculately clean, but most valuable of all are the wonderful people who work there. When the staff really care about your health and your progress, and are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet, it really makes the whole gym experience that much better. I've joined half a dozen gyms over the years, and my memberships never last more than a few months at most before I quit. This is the first time I've really stuck with it, and I owe it to the great staff at Burn Fitness. It's been over a year now, and I'm loving every moment of it.

The Y on Walton just west of Squirrel. The Staff is outstanding. Very friendly atmostphere where everyone is greeted with a smile. The building is kept very clean. The pools are great. There is free Childcare that does change diapers and interacts with the children. They have great Trainers and offer Crossfit as well. They keep adding new classes with the latest techniques. Love this place! I have been going here for two years and have met many genuinely nice people who do not care what you wear, if you are wearing the lastest workout clothes. Everyone is there to be healthy and feel part of a community
