A Great Place For A Workout
I came to Fitness First in Empire Shopping Gallery as a guest of a friend. It makes me sound like a cheapskate for going to several gyms as guests but I didn't care much as they seemed to love calling me up all the time. Anyway, Fitness First in Empire Shopping Gallery is a bit small if you were to compare with the likes of Celebrity Fitness in 1 Utama and Sunway Pyramid.
The place in itself is pretty clean and the machines are all usable as far I have tried. You may request for a trainer if you require some assistance. The locker room is a bit cramped but still okay. Have never lost any of my belongings here before. You can also request for a discount for your parking fee at the counter. It immediately reduces your fee by RM1. I came here for a good a whole month without any issues and complaints.
Good place to work out but I prefer Celebrity Fitness though.
An efficient gym
I joined the gym a few years back when they had an outlet in Tanjung Plaza. I preferred to go after work so I can squueze in a bit of a work out before dinner. The staff were generally very friendly and would meet my expectations of service and make me feel appreciated as a customer. Each person is given a key to put their belongings into a locker. I forgot to bring mine one day and I had some important valuable with me so I talked to the receptionist and she immediately gave me a replacement key which they normally keep for emergencies such as this. I was happily surprised.
The gym is well stocked with state of the art gym equipment but the air conditioning was too powerful and made my body cold when it was supposed to be hot and sweaty. It was an uncomfortable feeling and I needed to get away after awhile because of it. There were also television sets placed on the walls in front of every treadmill and I couldn't control the volume so sometimes when it was set too loud, it interrupts my concentration as I exercise. It was rather annoying.
