    The 2013 remodel has given this great space a much needed facelift. So stay away and let me enjoy it!!

    Finally reopened after renovations and was well worth the wait! No longer smells like feet. All of the cardio machines each have their own tvs. It appears that parking is free now too!

    Seriously the grossest, Dirtiest gym ever.

    Best hours to go is after 8:30ish.. Morning to afternoon is full of weird old people.. After 5pm to 8pm, good luck.. It gets really busy.

    Nastiest gym of all time + zero ventilation.

    Keep any items you take in close proximity. Some douchebag took my Henieken sweat towel. I know it's a badass sweat towel but really?? Stealing someone's dirty laundry.

    Definitely the best of the 3 LA Fitness chains in LA. Great track. Great pool and jacuzzi. Now, let's see how we can get rid of the over-80 set...

    This place is obviously losing money. Understaffed, garbage cans overflowing, towel dispensers running out of towels. Do your job people!

    Bring some sounds to drown out the constant chatter of koreaN/Chinese women n sauna.

    For the love of god... Please wipe down the gym equipment after you sweat all over it. Please! Gym etiquette. Learn it. Let's class this place up.

    Not a place to see eyecandy ... It's filled with old Asian men over 60... Feels like a old folks home hang out...low energy!!! Not clean in the wet areas

    Don't forget earplugs for the steam room and sauna. It's hard to relax with all the conversing.

    Make sure to buy your exit ticket upon leaving. Can be a hassle otherwise!

    Nobody here knows how to put their weights back on the racks. News flash: racking your weights is actually "MORE EXERCISE" !!!! Do it, dummies!

    Used to come to this gym all the time when I lived on this side of town. A recent remodel was a start but this place is a dump. Glad this isn't my main gym any longer. Parking token machine is junk.

    It's a little dirty because it was a ballys... They are working to bring it up to Lafitness standard

    There's a smoothie bar that sells fruits and select meals. Good if you need a quick bite.

    I take two Zumba classes a week. I really like it, The locker rooms is clean, the bathroom is clean. I worried about falling from all the water on the floor, where the showers are.

    Nice. People leave you alone here and don't look at you weird so much. Bonus, there's a running track.

    The place and the variety of machines are great. Early birds can work out more calmly just like late at night. Sunday morning is also empty.

    The men's locker room is creepy

    The service is great but if your a chick the sit up machines are not the best you'll have guys stare at you ass

    Melly D🌹 · August 18, 2014
  • Melly D.

    Doesn't take tokens anymore and make sure you have exactly .35 cent or you'll have to buy 3 tickets for a dollar

    Chris boxing class is the best. I stopped boxing 10 years ago. He told me "make a comeback". Pushes us every session to get the best workout!

    Denisse Castillo · July 19, 2013
  • Diego M.

    And this is why I don't come to this location. No hack squat machine?

    Diego Martinez · July 19, 2013

    Less than half a year after renovation, the curtesy curtains in the shower are gone, soap was replaced with foam, and overall feel is getting nasty.

    Mikhail Strukov · July 7, 2013

    If your going to txt or use the phone and not exercise or stretch please get off the machine.......

    Ismael Diaz · June 21, 2013

    Gym is closing for remodeling on November 5, 2012. It's set to reopen at the end of December.

    Swim at your own risk ... LA fitness really needs to clean up the pool that Ballys left in disgusting disarray.

    Kimberly Harville Rhodes · September 21, 2012
  • Chris L.

    Tuesday, August 7, was ridiculous. There was no hot water in the shower, and someone had to turn on the heater. Really?

    Chris Ledermuller · August 8, 2012
  • Aj W.

    Don't forget your water. The machine only takes singles and the store opens at 11 on the weekends although the gym opens 5 hours earlier. This place still sucks they only changed the sign. T

    Aj Warren · July 21, 2012
  • Micha R.

    Must wear bathing suit in the! Even if you just came to work out

    Micha Rivas · April 17, 2012
