Staff, variety of classes offered, affordable membership, and the sense of community the gym has created. The class workout room is in need of maintenance on a frequent basis: The floors are often dusty or has dirt so the floors aren't being swept in between classes or throughout the day. The yoga mats smell and are filthy form people wearing their shoes on them for some classes so they should be cleaned daily and throughout the day. The blankets are used to on the floor in some classes so they are picking up dirt and are smelly. The holes in the wall should be patched up. It creates a look that the place isn't taken care of. The cubby and weights take up a lot of room and having the storage for personal items in the workout room is distracting during a yoga class when late comers make noise putting their items away.

The senior group classes are the best!! Everyone is so friendly, the teacher is superb and so inclusive of new people. I have already recommended 2 people who now come regularly. Facilities are clean and all staff helpful

Flex is a wonderful gym for so many reasons. The staff are friendly and welcoming; the equipment is diverse, modern, and well-maintained; there's a spacious and beautiful movement studio; and the gym is clean. The vibe is comfortable and nonjudgmental. People of all ages and levels of fitness come to this gym and everyone seems comfortable working out in whatever way feels best for them. There's a nice, low-key community feeling and it really feels like a neighborhood gym. I also appreciate the option they give people of checking out the gym for seven days for free to see if it's a good fit. Bruce Cannon is the manager and he is fantastic. He is both extremely knowledgeable about fitness (he is also a personal trainer) and very kind, patient, and helpful, and always ready to answer any questions. (I definitely had many about the different machines, being a novice in that area.) He runs the gym according to high standards and with a high level of integrity, and he genuinely cares about people having an excellent gym experience. He also is interested in continuously improving the gym through getting the latest equipment and adding different classes. I can't recommend this gym enough!

Friendly staff, great circuit workout, and the environment is very welcoming compared to most other gyms, which can feel intimidating.

Nice small gym, ease of parking early in the day, friendly staff, not very much macho gym culture
