    Love this gym been going for a few months. My trainer Prince is amazing! If you can foot the bill, the facilities are well maintained and the staff are on top of it. Every visit I've had is comfortable and smooth sailing. The one thing is if you are fat like me bring your own towel if you indeed to swim or shower. Their towels are tiny or ask for two shower towels when you check in!

    I have been a member for several years of my brief stay in Milwaukee. Upon my transition out of state, I sadly had to end my membership. This is a great health club. The staff (Wauwatosa) were so welcoming, friendly, and informative. The health club is well maintained and clean. Overall a great experience!!!!!

    A great size space, very clean. Friendly people. My exercise here has been a huge help to lower my blood glucose. And my reward: 20 minutes in the whirlpool relaxing after a solid workout.

    It's not a huge building but has everything you'd need and more! Lots of cardio machines and enough free weights and squat racks to never have to wait for one. Haven't used the classes or pool yet but they also look nice. One star docked for the small space, you do have to walk around machines/people quite often to get to where you need to go.

    This location is ok in terms of amenities.In terms of customer service, I've had a pretty awful experience with the front desk staff. I typically go to the West Alis location, but this location has slightly longer hours most days. I had spoken to my membership specialist at WA about adding my daughter to my membership, which he said was not possible due to her age, but he gave me several guest passes for her so that she could try the gym to see if she'd like to sign up for her own membership. Great.Well, the Friday before Memorial Day, without notice, this location closed early. No sign, no phone message, nothing altering anyone to the change. Myself and numerous other people showed up, sat in the driveway calling and watching others going in and coming out in confusion. It wasn't until several days later that we learned it was due to Memorial Day. Already a sign of pretty poor management.On Tuesday 6/1 I tried to take my daughter with me to WAC in Tosa. We arrived at around 8ish pm. There were two men working the counter, both bearded. One was shorter and stocky and one was taller. The taller man took my card to scan and when I tried to give him the guest pass, rudely told us she couldn't come in because of a guest policy that said no guests after 745p. It was the first time I had heard this, and there was no email, note on the pass or comment about it from the worker who gave it to me.Mind you I'd paid to bring my daughter as a guest numerous times there and at other WAC locations without issue. I asked for explanation about this policy and he rolled his eyes, shrugged his shoulders like I was giving him a hard time, and said he didn't know and that he didn't make the rules. As a person of color, I'm used to going into places in certain well off areas of the city and being refused service coldly, rudely and without reason, and this guy was giving absolutely no *reason*. I asked to speak to a manager, wanting clarification on this. He sighs loudly and says "yea, I'm the manager on duty" which shocked me because he didn't have one single ounce of professional quality to even pretend to be. I told him I wanted to understand the reason my daughter was being told she couldn't stay without prior notice, no signage anywhere basically kicking us out- because it was pretty hard to believe we weren't being discriminated against. He said he worked there one day a week and he didn't make the rules. He gave me the card to the general manager and rolled his eyes and had a "go away" type of attitude with us. It was pretty disgusting and humiliating. I couldn't believe I was paying $71 a month for a membership to be treated this way.I had just been telling my daughter how sophisticated and high quality the WAC was compared to other gyms as we were parking our car and this is what we walked in to. Back at West Allis on another day, I asked the supervisor on duty about the incident to which she responded that they receive a lot of complaints about Tosa. She said that Tosa has been having a "guest problem" which is likely code word for Tosa community doesn't like folks of certain backgrounds in the gym and is trying various means of preventing them from visiting, including controlling guest access as well as crass and dehumanizing rudeness to their own members in hopes they feel offended and dehumanized enough to return.
