I go the the Lucille Roberts Gym at 125th st. the place is dirty, the staff is rude. The rules of the gym 30 minutes per machine, these rules are suppose to be inforced by the staff but most of the time they are so busy talking on the phone or playing they never enforce these rules and if they are questioned they just look at you like you are from out of space. I some times wonder if they understand english.

I have attended several gyms and most of them play music thatis fun to exercise to but I don't know what they are playing because I don't understand or speak spainish. I pay in united states dollars to hear music I don't understand, at last stop I thought this was America, I guess she can accept USD, but can only play spainsh speaking music.

I have never seen a person from corporate there even thor I have make several compalaints about the place to the corp office. I can wait for my contract TO BE UP SO I CAN GET THE *** OUT OF THERE.

Had an Experience with Lucille Roberts?

Lucille Roberts is a bit of a Scam. Don't join

Check out their Report on the Better Business Bureau - They received an "F" (BB is a Non Profit Organization that helps monitor businesses.)

Additionally, if you have a complaint it is next to impossible to get any where w/Lucille Roberts.  Instead try to see if the BBB can help mediate your problem.

I've been a member for 4 yrs and when I started the gym I had a very low selsteem and thanks to the staff member I was able to reach my goal and change completely, remember that u are treated as you treat others so let's focus on what we are there for and less about the music trust me I don't think you will find another gym more affordable when I'm there I feel like home.

That is one of the most arrogant, *** concerns I've ever heard. And I totally agree with "racist" in that he or she said "Spanish" music is from spain, while I highly doubt that you were hearing Flamenco or something...learn about a culture before whining so much!

I don't know what all these people are so ridiculously offended by, but you're completely right.This is America, they should only really be playing mainstream American music.

The only thing everyone at the gym has in common is living in America, by which they consent to being exposed to its culture.

If you were going to a gym in a Spanish country, then you'd have consented to being part of Spanish culture, and thus you would be in the wrong for complaining about Spanish music.

I don't demand the gym put on Arabic music, even though a large portion of the members are Arab.And if they did put on Arabic music, I can't imagine having a problem with someone who didn't speak Arabic complaining.

As far as the 30 minute machine rule, if you tell the person that you signed up for the machine now, they more often than not are perfectly pleasant about giving up the machine.

i agree that it is annoying to hear music that one cannot understand.calm down, this woman is not being racist!

i had the same experience at the lucille roberts in ridgewood when i lived there. i mean, if you were polish, you wouldn't play polka music at the gym you worked out just because YOU understood and enjoyed it, right? i definitely agree that upbeat, popular dance-y music should be played, but yea, just ask them to change the music and i'm sure they'll oblige.

better yet, bring your own music (which isn't always much of a solution anyway since LR plays their music at such a high decibel level that it's sometimes impossible to hear what's coming out of your headphones without getting a migraine and/or going deaf!).but, you get what you pay for, i suppose...!

Stacey, this IS being racist and very IGNORANT.I agree with he other comment, you don't like the music, bring an ipod.

Up to now, I have not heard a valid reason why she does not like this gym.

or this *** said was "I don't like the spanish music, i don;t like to hear something that i don't understand" Grow up!and you might be a minority, but I bet my bottom dollar that you are not a spanish minority
