Yeah... When I first started working (for the first time in my life, about 4 years ago), I decided to join Premier, because they were pretty cheap, had parking and were close to my house. So on the surface they were a pretty good choice.
Until, that is, I started going. Their facilities were really poor, and were not kept in good repair. The change room was just skanky and gross. When the steam roo has a pool of yellow rusty (god I hope it was rust) water in the corner, its not a place I want to stay. The main gym had a large open industrial feel, with exposed duct work and pipes, which would have been fine, if the pipes didn't have mould growing on them. Not good.
The only good thing was the adorably cute personal trainer I hired (Hi Mike!!).
I also think it's really funny that the owner tries to defend the place by saying "35000 people leave us every year". Not a good sales or PR tactic. Moron.
I'm now with Good Life.
