LOST RING turned to FOUND RING within 24 hours. The staff was attentive and caring when I notified them of my lost ring that had a great deal of sentimental value to me. The owner had no problem allowing me to post a little flyer to other members to keep a lookout for it. A gym member found it stuck in a locker keychain and turned it in. Matt from the front desk called me immediately to happily informed me that it had been found. This gym is top notch from the staff to the gym members! They treat everyone like family, you aren’t just a member at Metro!❤️ More...

We had the opportunity to participate in the CorpFit Challenge. Our entire organization loved it. The sessions were designed for our team and the needs of the participant's. We had an excellent trainer who was always prepared and ready to challenge us. Great facility, super staff and amazing results!!! More...

I have been a member at Metro Fitness for over 15 years. I am currently working out at Metro East with Karly. She is a terrific trainer (one of the best I have had) and pushes me so that I have a great workout. the workouts are always interesting and fun. The environment is very welcoming. Shawn is always so upbeat. He puts me in a good move every time. Highly recommend Metro Fitness for all your exercise needs. I am looking forward trying some of the classes. More...

I have had the pleasure to work with Josh for the past few weeks to help me with my personal fitness goals. He pushes me through the pain of change and transformation, which is not always easy. Thank you Josh for not making me feel uncomfortable for not being in the condition that I should be. Your support through this is appreciated. It is not always easy to ask for help, it was a big step to admit that I needed someone to help push me through the pain and hold me accountable to what I ultimately want to accomplish. More...

Tyler Trumble is amazing. While its awesome that I have lost 20 pounds over the last year, I just feel better in my everyday activities thanks to him. While in the gym, Tyler is great with noticing any issues I'm having and works with me to create alternative exercises when needed. He is an excellent trainer! More...

LOVE the track here! It's a great way to get off the treadmill and get a run in on those nasty weather days! The hours are the best - early early for us early birds! AND, staff and other members are friendly too. A welcoming environment to get a workout done! More...

Dan Jones has been my personal trainer since 2017. After working with an awesome woman trainer for nearly 2 years before Dan, I was a bit skeptical that a man would “measure up.” I should add that I have chronic back issues that make for a challenging trainer/trainee experience! Dan has successfully provided all that I needed, he is a 5 star trainer and also a great human being! More...

I have been working out with trainers for many decades, and I can say without hesitation that Tyler is the most gifted trainer I have ever encountered. He uses his amazing intelligence and intuition and deep knowledge base to create a program for me that seems to be exactly what I need to thrive. (He's also fun, which makes his very hard workouts totally bearable.) Two trainers whom I have deep respect for also work out with Tyler's assistance, and I feel I am in very special company to be one of his clients. More...

I joined Metro Fitness Gym about 6 months ago and started training with Tyler Trumble. My hope was to achieve strength and endurance. Thanks to Tyler, I am physically much stronger, healthier and confident in my ability to continue improving. Tyler has brought me to a level I never imagined possible. He continues to motivate and teach me that I can & will continue to reach my goals. The entire staff at Metro Fitness is so supportive and encouraging. I'm trilled that I joined this gym. Best decision!! More...

Great facility with the best staff. Manager “Will” sets the tone for this club, welcoming, service oriented, encouraging staff & atmosphere. If you need something, they make it happen. The equipment is generous, varied, and always in good repair. Two beautiful studios with full mirrors, so if you are into visualization for your sport this is the place for you. The cushioned track is a treat. Members are welcoming while respecting your privacy. And there is adequate space between the machines so you don’t have to worry about catching the sweat drops from the person next to you. Beautiful private studio for use with a personal trainer. Cute little lounge with TV, microwave and fridge if you brought a snack. Or you can grab a smoothie, wrap or salad at the Spa Restaurant downstairs. (Koinonia). And the best home made soups in town! Good job all! More...

A little less than two years ago I walked into Metro Fitness. I had been to local barre classes and was an avid runner but still had extra weight I could not lose and high cholesterol. I was lucky enough to be greeted by Tyler Trumble, one of Metro's best trainers. He became my trainer and has been since the day I walked in the door. I have since lost 40 pounds, more than 10 inches off my waist and my cholesterol is down over 40 points! I can positively say I made one of the best decisions that I have ever made! Tyler is one of the most dedicated and caring trainers. Not only does he design a program specifically for each of his clients, he guides them through each and every exercise. Each training session is challenging and unique. During times I have wanted to give up (every leg day!!) he is always there to motivate me to keep pushing beyond my comfort zone. If there was a way to give him more than 5 stars he definitely would deserve it! The entire Metro staff is very encouraging. When they say it takes a Village you definitely get that at Metro Fitness East! More...

Metrofit East has provided a place, an atmosphere, and trainers where as an older runner I can pursue my fitness goals. Having a track, this gym lets me run safely in inclement weather. Personal trainers Billy Price and Tyler Trumble have shown me how to increase strength, endurance, balance and flexibility. While giving me direction in training for running events, Tyler has guided me through resistance tasks which has had most positive results in bone density. This gym deserves 5 stars. More...

After two weeks of working with new personal trainer at Metro Fitness I couldn’t be more happy! Just incredible education that he has provide me with. My trainer DAN JONES MS Exercise Science, SUNY Cortland BA Psychology, SUNY Oswego NCCPT Certified Personal Trainer Owner- ProMinded, Mental Training Co is amazing! Durning my sessions he has explained what we are doing, why we are doing and how it is going to change my body. For the 1st time I’m sore but don’t feel like I’m hurt. Records are being taken so I see my results. Simple things like just knowing when to breathe in and out are making such a difference with me. Shawn Pudney Owner of Syracuse Select Basketball More...

I am extremely impressed and satisfied with my membership with Metro Fitness East. I have been a member through the many management and ownership changes throughout the years, and Metro Fitness far surpasses all previous ownerships in cleanliness, competency, and knowledgeability. I would highly recommend this facility for those looking for a smaller workout atmosphere with knowledgable and friendly staff, as well as state-of-the-art equipment. More...

If you are searching for a professional, quality fitness facility, I highly recommend Metro Fitness. I did my homework and found their knowledge, passion and genuine interest in your total well-being second to none. These guys are the real deal. Their classes and programs focus on getting results, but more importantly, sustainability, for those of us with hectic schedules and busy lives! Randy employs the best of the best, and members benefit daily from their vast knowledge and experience. In addition, they are civic minded and they invest back into the community that supports them. Thank you, Metro Fitness for bringing a WORLD CLASS facility to Central New York! More...

I had been an exercise enthusiast, with classes and/or workouts 5-6 times a week. Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer. three years later, with that whole ordeal now behind me, the Metro 42 program was my first attempt at getting back into some sort of exercise routine. All of the trainers have been wonderful, questioning me before we started anything new about what and how much I would be able to do, and modifying for my situation if necessary. I might not have made the “winning” photos this time around, but I have found a home at Metro and look forward to becoming the strong woman that I was pre-cancer. They have made that commitment with me, which will help keep me on track. More...

I have been working with personal trainer Ashlea Youngs at Downtown and she has helped me reach my goals and make new goals consistently. I am the strongest I have ever been..I have gained 12 lbs in about a year and got skinnier. I lost inches and I did eat a lotttt. It is very satisfying to see myself getting leaner and stronger. So thankful to Ashlea for always accommodating me and Randy Sabourin for partnering with my employer to do this Corporate Wellness Program. Can't wait to see what another year of training will do.

This is the best gym that I have ever been a member of. The trainers push you to be the best that you can be. I mentioned to the trainers that I was recovering from an injury and they gladly gave me modifications to my workout and they also continually checked in to see how my injury was healing up. I attend Pack classes regularly and the group environment keeps me motivated, fellow gym members inspire me to push a little harder and I have also made some great friends! When I leave the gym the friendly front desk workers that greeted me by name when I entered, always ask me how my workout was as I leave! Hands down this is the best gym in Syracuse! More...

Getting fit for my wedding!

With my wedding approaching, I knew I wanted to look/ feel great on my big day! I heard about Metro Fitness through a co-worker who had, at the time, just successfully completed the Metro42 body transformation challenge herself, losing over 20 pounds. It was very exciting and motivating to see and hear about a success story firsthand, rather than just through a story you read online and wonder “there must be a trick,” or “did they really lose weight healthily?”

The Metro42 Challenge has changed my life. It is definitely challenging (the name isn’t a joke), but you can’t ask for a more supportive atmosphere at Metro Fitness. The trainers are encouraging and structure the workouts to accommodate all fitness levels. Patrick helps guide you through the nutrition training, which surprisingly, was not as impossible as I had expected . I have definitely taken on a new lifestyle, not just another fad diet that I have tried so many other times. Most of all, being part of a team that is all working towards the same goal is truly inspiring!

I lost 21.5 pounds and nearly four inches off my waist during the Metro42 Challenge!! I still have work to do, but I can’t describe how good it feels to be over the first big hump. It is incredible to lift a 20 pound weight and realize that—less than two months ago—I weighed that much more.

I can’t thank the Metro42 team enough! If you are even thinking about trying the Metro42 challenge—do it! Six weeks go by in a flash and you don’t want look back six weeks from now wishing you had done something about that unwanted weight. It took me several years, but I finally beat the vicious cycle!

This place has the most professional atmosphere of any gym I have ever been to. The trainers are incredibly insightful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend taking Metro Fitness personal training classes because you can push yourself to another level. Loren, a personal trainer at Metro Fitness, really helped me get back on track for conditioning - I felt as if I was training for the olympics.

The management is unparalleled. Metro's entire team is cohesive, super-friendly, and responsive. The gym is spotless.

I am saddened that I am moving away for a bit because my time in Syracuse was made so much better by exercising at Metro Fitness.

When I return to Syracuse, I will only lift here.

If I could give it more stars, I would.

The facilities are well maintained and they have a wide array of equipment and classes. More...

I have been going to Metro for more than two years.  It is a very good health club. I have had one on one sessions for Pilates and the trainer is excellent.The really good thing that they do is that they give you a measurement when you join up so you can measure your progress.  I was able to show that I couldn't touch my toes when I started and within six months, was able to touch them and not have that constant "crack" when I picked up a pen off of the floor.  The equipment has come a long way, and the expansion has really given the place room to do what you need in a gym.Overall, I would recommend Metro if you have the means to join.  My only gripe is that it is expensive to join.

This place is much more than your average gym.  From the moment you stop at the front desk until you leave, every one that works there is so friendly and supportive. The  fitness classes are very effective, the trainers show care and concern for all.  Definitely take advantage of them all.  The ladies locker room has a sauna and a relaxation room. It's so comforting, you don't have to hide or be uncomfortable. Metro fitness has a program they offer 4 times a year, Metro42. ..you work out with a group and get nutrition information, advice and support for 6 weeks and can easily lose 20 pounds. If you follow their guidelines  and workout it's not as hard as you think it could be, because you have so much support from everyone; your group, your trainers and the owner Randy. If you get a chance go visit. Meeting Randy and his staff will make you feel genuinely welcomed. More...
