Update: Balance did refund me the money owed after leaving the below review. I only wish they had done so 8 weeks ago so I didn’t have to resort to Google Reviews to get them to pay attention. I’ll keep my membership because the gym is nearby and... well-equipped but the customer service chain of command is really unclear.——-Extremely frustrating customer service, which is a shame because I really like the gym itself and the front desk staff are always friendly. I have been waiting almost 2 months now for Balance to refund me a double charge for the month of March 2024 and no amount of cajoling, emailing, clarifying, or in-person visits to the front desk have resolved the issue.Reminding them to fix their mistake has been a thorn in what otherwise would be a positive gym experience.read more

Found my new home, wish I walked in their door years ago. The gym itself has a great vibe—we do hard work there, but the trainers and staff create a welcoming, encouraging, judgment-free-zone, all with a good chunk of fun. Never thought I’d actually... look forward to gym days, but now I truly do.I have been training with Josh Russell for a few months now, and in short, he’s the best. He shows up every day—listens to me, pushes me, encourages me, respects me. Josh has made me faster, better, stronger—boosting my confidence and fitness through the roof. Couldn’t recommend Josh, the crew, and the gym more—see you there!read more
