Membership Costs & Fees
Fitness 19 has two levels of membership.
- The Multi-Club entitles members to the amenities of all the company’s locations. The monthly dues range from $15 to $24 and the annual fee is about $30.
- The One Club level provides access to all the amenities of the home location only. Monthly dues are $10 to $15, with an annual fee of $49.
Most members are happy that there is no long-term agreement even though you can spend a little less if you commit for a year. The monthly costs are among the lowest in the industry.
Cleanliness & Maintenance
The reviews for this category are evenly divided and seem to depend on the specific location. The level of cleanliness does not seem to be a problem but many clubs are small and crowded. Equipment in these clubs is older and often not working or in need of repair.
Lockers & Showers
There are no locker rooms or showers. However, there are changing rooms with lockers available and these seem to be sufficient for most members. These are private areas that accommodate members looking to change clothes. There are no complaints about the locker area and reports are that it is clean and well-maintained. For all these reasons, the ratings for this category are high.
Fitness 19 has no extra amenities. Each club provides the basics and has no pool, sauna, salon, or sports’ courts. There is a variety of workout equipment, personal training, and classes to support members’ efforts. As long as you understand the limits of these clubs, this should not be a problem.
Like many fitness chains, there are multiple complaints about the cancellation process. The issues revolve around the fact that monthly fees continue to be collected once cancellation has been finalized. According to Fintess 19 reviews, the bigger issue seems to be that the staff at the member service desk is either unconcerned or unavailable. Those working the desk are often unable to solve problems. This is a real concern because customer service is critical in a club trying to create a comfortable environment.
Fitness 19 Verdict
Fitness 19 is a difficult company to rate. From what you can see in the Fitness 19 reviews summarized here, what exists seems to be viewed positively by members. But the lack of diversity limits the appeal. If you are looking for a no nonsense approach to workouts, then Fitness 19 may be the club for you. It has all the basics that you need to complete your workout and help you achieve your goals. However, the club is marketed as one who provides supports for members’ efforts, and offers those services at an affordable and competitive price. Based on the Fitness 19 reviews ratings, the overall rating for this gym is a 3/5.
