The people here at the Lethbridge Fitness Club are great. The employees are very knowledgeable and always willing to help out in any way. The members are friendly and helpful as well, creating an open atmosphere to work out in. The new building is awesome, very spacious, with great equipment. Keep up the great work!!
Speaking for the over 50 crowd, I love the new facility and the variety of equipment offered and especially the fact that you don't feel intimidated by the younger crowd as there's such a good cross-section of age groups using the club.
I have been a member of the Fitness Club for 8 years and I am impressed with all the facets of this club. The facility is immaculate and the equipment is clean and well organized. There is a high level of training available and the owners are usually available to greet customers on a first name basis. [This] ensures the quality of the club is always at an optimum level.
