I love Iron Fitness. The trainer I've worked with there, Jules, is phenominal. I had one session with her and followed her plan and have already seen dramatic results in my fitness. The facilities are small, but clean, friendly, and very comfortable. I prefer Iron to the other facilities I've worked out in in Santa Monica. I see all ages and fitness levels working out here and that always makes me feel less self conscious about my progress and results. Even in high traffic times, there's enough workout equipment to complete my routine without having to wait forever to get what I need.
And a note about the front desk staff. Super friendly. Wes is great, I see him frequently. Sometimes i'm in a childcare pinch and they've let me bring my daughter (7) in with me who sits quietly and reads while I get my lift on. Very happy and great value for the $$.
