I worked at a couple of nice gyms in the city some years ago (Equinox, Reebok Sports Club), and Motion Fitness has a similar feel to those gyms - up to date, very clean and well maintained, friendly and attentive staff, with a nice variety of offerings. And it doesn't feel like one of those hard-core gyms where every class pushes at a high intensity level - which is perfect for those who want to ease into getting in shape. (Of course if you want hard-core, you can find that there as well.) Motion Fitness feels very inclusive and welcoming to all people no matter what their age and fitness level. I also love that you never have to wait to get on a cardio machine any time of day, there's an excellent selection of free and machine weights, and they have babysitting services. I looked at a lot of local gyms before deciding, and Motion Fitness fit all my criteria. I'm very happy there.
