It’s been a month since I signed my soul over to the gym and I semi-love it. I was shopping around for gyms and either they were too expensive or didn’t have a daycare.
Eventually, Lucille Roberts on Forest Hills, Queens got note of it and whispered my name–
When I initially contacted them over the phone I was told that it was $15 a month, no activation fee and daycare was included. The only thing was that every 6-months they would charge $30 to continue the up-keep of the gym, since its already so cheap.
Great deal, huh?
Well– not completely.
They tried to get me to sign-up over the phone after I had already told them I wanted to go in personally and poke my head around, especially in the daycare area.
As I walked in I was told something totally different from the phone conversation. Besides the $15 a month membership, there was a $10 activation fee and daycare was $2 an hour. Oh, and they conveniently didn’t tell me that they were charging my credit card an extra $5 bucks since I didn’t pay in cash. Ridiculous.
Lucille Roberts is cheap which I love. They have classes which is even better. There have been a few incidents where they tried to force us to watch DVDs to workout instead of having the trainer. If I wanted to follow a DVD I would’ve stayed home and save my money!
They have equipment too– well a lack there of. It’s super tiny so there’s not much room. There are signs that they are adding more equipment, so we shall see!
Two last tidbit of advice– the sales they have going on is always on or comes back around quickly, so don’t be pressures into signing up right away if you’re not ready.
Lastly, don’t be fooled by the advertisements of these kind of girls– because not one person is looking like that, haha.
