I used to be a BALLY'S member for about 14 years, and my renewal was $95.
per year and I did not like going because the so-called trainers are like
sharks in a feeding frenzy running around trying to sell new memberships,
and they ignore anyone who wants anything that they cannot collect money on.
A lot of the equiptment is old in the BALLY's that are not new, and the
showers and bathrooms are usually pretty slimey. Here in South Florida, the
so-called trainers are also the same guys who have to clean the showers and
toilets, so they usually do a half-assed job. The rest of the time, the
"trainers" are cavorting with the female staff-trainers. Funny, most of the
"trainers" usually look like 18 year old punks, and most of them hardly have
any mass and are mostly "disco" types like the female staff at BALLY's. If
you ask them a weight-lifting question they try to bring you into the office
so they can sell you a book, Protein powder, or a gym bag. I found that
avoiding the Bally staff was the best way to spend any quality time at the
Bally's gyms.

There's a 24HR Fitness in Orange Park, only about a 2 year old facility and
its immense. Haven't been in there but FWIH its a great gym. But that's
up here in the Jacksonville Area.
