A facility with room to growI have been attending SLidell Athletic Club now for just about a year. Everything I need this club offers. When I go workout I don't want to have to wait for a machine of an area to clear up so that I can do my thing. This club offers...
Great Club!I have been a member of the slidell athletic club since 2006. The staff has been extremely helpful assisting in weight training and classes regarding nutrition. Slidell Athletic Club has updated and excellent maintained equipment. The indoor pool is perfect for year round training and no impact cardio. The staff is always available to assist when needed and resolves the clients needs. They attend community activites and take an active role in helping the community. Slidell Athletic Club is a family friendly environment. I will recommend Slidell Athletic Club to my friends and family
Not really family orientedWe reviewed both major local clubs before signing with this one. We bought the family friendly sales pitch and this one was closer to home. We like the nice, spacious facilities. I personally like the women's only area. We like the indoor pool for adults looking just to exercise or have a quiet swim. The outdoor pool is nice for families. I love the variety of classes offered. We love that it's open 24 hours (except weekends). Unfortunately, for us, the cons outweigh the conveniences. There are Christian quotes throughout and this is nice...kind of sets a tone for what to expect. Yet, there are employees walking around w/t-shirts asking if you've tried all twenty positions. Yes, I know this refers to an exercise machine but it is a play on a sexual innuendo about positions tried. I haven't asked anyone about this but have been asked a few times by friends who are members if I'd seen the shirts. No one was laughing. More surprised about a family club promoting the machine
Not enough for familiesI have to agree with the lady who complained about the lack of things for her kids to do. We only have one son, 7 yrs old, and we go at alternating times because he hates the child area, too. He liked it initially but after being told to stop running a few times...well, he's seven. Sitting there playing video games is not what we wanted him to be doing anyway. We wanted him in motion and interacting with other kids in guided play, exercise, etc... There are several babies. Because we go at different times of the day and the babies were often the same, I have to believe that they are probably employee babies. I did ask about programs for kids but one employee said they had approached the owner and was told that they are not a babysitters club. Young members eventually become paying members. We belong to this club but are paying $25 month for our son to go to P.E. (homeschool P.E.) at Crossgates twice a week. There are between 20 - 30 kids that show up for homeschool P.E. twice
Update to previous postI previously posted re: concerns of lack of things for kids to do in this family club. Since then, Tina, one of the managers has really gone above and beyond trying to find out what the needs are for people with kids (including homeschooling families who look for activities in the daytime). I see they now have a summer camp planned for children. That's a start. I won't be able to sign him up for this because I had already found a fun summer program and signed him up for that one. (swim team at Tanglewood) Still glad to see SAC stepping up to the plate and beginning to show an interest in the kids. There is at least the feeling that they are trying. I did put our son in their karate program which he enjoys and that gives me another hour of workout time without having to juggle childcare. Hopefully, more fun and healthy activities are in the pipeline and coming soon. We have extended our membership to go through the summer. (note: I previously posted as Anne M. but this site won't let
Slidell Athletic Club is a Great adult facilityit really erks me when people don't like something a business is or isn't doing, and say well they're a christian business they should do everything I want. Well you know what, businesses can be a Christian facility, and just not offer the services you want. Just becuase the gym doesn't offer a lot of things for kids, doesn't make them less of a Christian business. Some of you guys sound simple ridiculous! Theres no need to bash a business because they don't offer what you are looking for. That would be like me bashing my cable compnay because they don't deliver pizza. Its two different businesses. I like slidell athletic club because there aren't kids running around everywhere. If I wanted that I would go to the park. I have a child and the whole point of daycare at the gym is, is so my child is in safe environment while I work out, I didn't join the gym for my kid to have something to do, I joined for me. I then do other things for my child at other places. By the way, my child als
Slidell Athletic Club needs work.Slidell Athletic Club is an average gym. There is much hype about the classes they offer, however, the classes do not cater to the working person. They are scheduled either too early or too late in the evening. My decision to joing Slidell Athletic Club was based on the fact that the second location, on Hwy 190, would be opening in 2009. It's November 11, 2009 and there is no activity on that property. I don't find the instructors very friendly or helpful. No one talks to you when you are there and I have never been approached by any staff member asking if I needed any help. I have observed the staff engagined in extensive conversations with the extremely fit members. I would think that those people don't need as much help or guidance as the not so fit members. It is as though the staff avoids those who are overweight and un-fit. I thought that I would be motivated and encouraged by the staff members, but, quite the contrary. I may as well join one of the self-help gym in t
A facility with room to growI have been attending SLidell Athletic Club now for just about a year. Everything I need this club offers. When I go workout I don't want to have to wait for a machine of an area to clear up so that I can do my thing. This club offers a large facility full of equipment. I haven't been inside once and had to wait. I didn't enjoy the music much last fall but now they have a new music system which plays music that everyone can enjoy. There is one problem that I can easily see and that is the free weight room. THe equipment is fine but the weights are over the place. I see the employees coming in and out of there putting things back where they belong, but it isn't enough. The club could really use some way of better organizing the equipment.
Clean & Friendly ClubI really enjoy coming to this club. Being in the military I have traveled and used a lot of clubs. If anyone is shopping health clubs, you should consider this club. Lots of equipment! Did I say Lots of equipment? Its very clean too. if you like classes they have a lot, i'm not into them, but they have them, even at 5 in the morning when I go.
NOT a Kids ClubI like the club because of the space. You can walk in it without bumping into some sweaty guy like some other clubs. If I wanted a place to leave my kids I would go somewhere another facility.
Best for getting results!I was a member of Cross Gates and made the switch over to Slidell Athletic Club. I could NOT be happier. I am continually amazed at the knowledge and achievement of the staff members. They are indeed industry leaders. SAC also has an abundant amount of state-of-the-art equipment. Since joining SAC, I never have to wait for a machine, which helps when I am looking for a quick, effective work-out.
Fantastic Place To WorkoutA great athletic club with great family rates. Employees are courteous and very helpful. Very clean. Lots of classes to choose from. Has BOTH an indoor and outdoor pool for both the serious and recreational swimmer. A very comfortable place to get a workout without feeling like you are at a singles club being preyed upon by the opposite sex. Love the big screen TV's by the treadmills and bikes. My husband likes the room with the free weights and the women's only exercise room is also great. So much to offer. The best health club that I have belonged to in Slidell by far.
I love Slidell Athletic ClubSlidell Athletic Club is a great Health Club to join if you are serious about losing weight and getting in shape! they offer some fantastic programs, such as the MED X lower back, neck, Ab, and core-strength program that I am currently enrolled in....they also have an indoor saltwater pool, which I love to use in the winter time!
