Review of Revolution Fitness by Heidi Pogner-Schultz

While the idea behind the gym is "cute," they are terribly unorganized and mismanaged. I have a Groupon I am trying to use in order to book appointments for my daughter. They just implemented a new "system" it seems no one is trained on, except for maybe the one manager, and she is only in until noon. When you call to schedule an appointment, you get a lot of apologies on why it is they can no longer handle appointments over the phone. That is itself is a big red flag, especially for a gym with a family membership well over $1200 a year (no phone appointments when for a gym with premium membership?). When I spoke to manager, at least I think she was the manager, Mary Beth Knight, she had to book the appointment as herself. She assured me after the first appointment, and physically bringing in the Groupon printout, I would be able to sign up for my own appointments via a link sent to me in an email. I received the email, set up my account, and low and behold, no credits. I called the gym, to which I am told the gentlemen on the phone was not allowed to set up appointments, only Mary Beth could, and she is only in from 6 a.m. to noon. I had considered signing up with the gym, however this dissuaded me now. I would avoid this gym and invest in the YMCA or another gym catering to families. You will be out $1200. They are eager to take your money, but not devote the time to you. I am sorry to write such a negative review. I really wanted to enjoy this place.

VERY VERY unsafe place. The cardio equipment sits in front of the electrical panel boxes (OSHA violation) next to a dock door. When it rains it floods with water around the equipment making this even more dangerous. It also floods in other various places.

Also very dangerous is the fact that their are kids running around making is hazardous when trying to workout while dodging kids.

TRX straps are not properly hung. A few people have been injured to the non TRX strap coming loose.

The kids ninja upper deck rails are not properly made and secured! If a child leans forward on these rails they could easily fall

There is NO AC for the summer heat and minimal heat for the cold winter days.

No real locker rooms with showers for both genders.

I had to relocate my clients due to the many safety hazards and the gyms financial instability.


I worked here for 3.5 years! I was desk help, a subcontracted Personal Trainer, and a subcontracted Class Instructor. I often received bouncing checks, post dated checks, split checks, and checks put on hold! All of this is illegal BTW! I have had almost $8000 in bounced checks in less than two years! I left here with the company owing me over $3500!! I left because **** **** just wouldn't pay me because the gyms revenue is next to nothing! I have seen the owner **** **** and the company do this to over 15 people since I've started there. Wether it was desk help or subcontractors!

The owner did this to numerous people before I started there also!!

There were so many negative comments and low ratings on FACEBOOK they took the rating availability down! They don't want you to see what's really going on!

This gym has been at the round bottom location for almost two years and not much has been done for the members. The building is on a lease and the company is barely making its rent to the owner so beware of any large purchases! I have info from the owner stating this in emails and text messages!

ALSO BEWARE OF GIVING **** **** YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER! She illegally charged my clients husbands credit card for $250 from her own laptop after gym hours! They are LIFETIME MEMBERS (which they will never return after this) and she had already paid for her training! They had no reason to be charged for anything in that amount! **** **** sent a FACEBOOK message to them stating that it was an accident done by a staff member and the money had been refunded but it never was! And then The owner sent several letters to their bank saying it was a legal charge! This isn't the first time she has done this!

Just check out the BBB rating on her and this place! She has done this to SEVERAL PEOPLE!!

The father son activities which included yoga, Obstacle course, ninja training, boxing class and of course a parent v. sons dodge ball game really did a workout on us. The event was coordinated to the T and everyone got to participate. Staff super professional and caring. Facility A+ clean

We purchased the Groupon because it was a great deal.

Ninja Warrior class for kids is a great energy burner during the winter months for kids.

Revolution Fitness is one of those few gyms across the country the offers A+ service and a gym floor that is completely empty.
Revolution fitness is able to keep its gym empty by using an ingenious business strategy in which they randomly close there gym for multiple hours everyday without telling there customers. This great plan created by the hard working people at Rev fitness deters potential customers that enjoy gyms that are open during there posted business hours.
And if you thought revolution fitness stopped there to ensure that their gym is completely empty you would be mistaken. I once called at 1 asking the hours for the gym and I was told the gym was open until 9 that day, but when i arrived i found a locked door and a sign that stated the gym is closed and will reopen at 4. This is keeping people from using the gym which in turn means less usage on there very old equipment so that it last longer, another brilliant move by Revolution fitness.
Again if you thought the business plan for a completely useless gym stopped there you again would be mistaken. The gyms last great quality is its lack of water, this was well thought out by the team at revolution fitness as working out makes people thirsty and in need of water, but if none is available people will have to leave the gym earlier.
I sadly have to give this gym a 1 star rating as i am one of those sick, sick people who like a gym to be open when it says it is, but don't let me stop you from joining revolution fitness it is truly one of the best gyms in the country.

We purchased the Groupon because it was such a great deal. On our first visit, we stood at the front desk for 15 minutes without any greeting, while workers looked over at us from their personal conversation. Sign in process was never explained to us until I learned the hard way.

Gym is sooo dirty. Bathroom has been out of paper towels for several weeks.

Ninja warrior class for kids is very unsafe. Not much padding with concrete floors below. Obstacles are not properly built or secured. If you go, be ready to spot your child the entire time! It is a great energy burner for little ones at least!

There is no way this place will be in business much longer.
