I got a day pass to try VASA out today in case it was better than Planet Fitness. I will be staying with Planet. The gym itself is new and has lots of cool amenities, but I noticed there was a line for nearly every machine/free weights that would be in most people's routines. I also went at like 1030AM on a Tuesday, so I can imagine how insane it would be after work. The biggest problem is that this gym is FILTHY. When I got home, I wouldn't even pet my dog until after I washed my hands again. The bathroom floor was covered in toilet paper. There was literally black sludge stopping up the drain the steam room. On top of that, I didn't see any cleaning stations, no people cleaning the machines after use, and not a single staff member cleaning. At the PF on Woodmen, there is ALWAYS staff cleaning and everyone is wiping down their machines. For a gym this busy, you need to have staff cleaning 24/7. If this is their protocol during a pandemic, I can imagine what they're like in normal times. Hard pass.
The gym is clean and everyone is pretty respectful and re-racks their weights. The only problem is it is BUSY. I usually go late in the evening to avoid the just-got-off-work crowd and sometimes all the 5lb - 50lb dumbbells are taken, and all the benches and squat racks are taken. If you like to stick to your program you will be waiting in line for equipment several times a week.
Love love love this gym and I didn't think I was going to. I usually don't like big gyms and all the eyes on my fat cells.. lol... but this one everyone is focusing on them and it's good.
Big gym with all the amenities for a reasonable price. It is busy but big enough to accommodate. Be aware of the extra fees when signing up. Definitely will not pay what is advertised. Even with the random fees it is still cheaper than other gyms in town.
I’ve been to gyms all over the country, personal trainer background, tons of history with gyms. This gym has potential and has nice amenities, but it’s too slammed. Literal lines for several stations. It’s tough, throws off your routine. I’ve ran gyms before, and a gym this size needs to mitigate its traffic. Not sure if I’ll keep my membership.
