I've tried both...

Masikip sa Slimmer's... pero ok naman sa tulong from the staff....

Sa Fitness... tutulungan ka lang pag may personal session ka... marami ring tao kadalasan..
Help me decide... magrerenew ako ng membership e.

Salamat!!! :blush:

mas mahal ang ff, madami ding tao. dami ding complains dahil sa services, security and policies nila.

ganun din sa slimmers. although cheaper ang rate ng slimmers by a mile.

what i did is to quit FF and transferred to a neighborhood gym. i only pay 700 pesos/month.

fitness first has a screwed-up billing system. Better watch your credit card statements every month, magugulat ka na lang minsan na dodouble charge ka for one month tapos di naman nila reimburse, gagawin nila ssbhin nila icrecredit na lng ung na double na payment mo next month by making u sign this waiver of some sort pero next month na bill ka pa din.

Eto pa isang experience ko, my bro joined the gym only for 3 months they told supposedly by august tapos na cya and we filed for termination a month before para cguradong hanggang august na lang ung membership nya, pero pota november na ngayon nabibill pa din kami sa utol ko, remedy ginawa na lang ulet cinredit na lng lahat ng sobrang na bayaran namin sa account ko.

SCREWED UP billing system really !!

It really depends on what you go for. If you're into anaerobic exercise,mas ergonomic daw pa rin yung sa SWI but I really can't tell since I don't lift weights.
But if you're there for aerobics, SWI is known for the best instructors.
Mga latak ng SWI yung nasa FF. They heavily rely on the Les Milles step by step modules which tend to be boring since they change routines after 3-4 mos. plus it is very slow due to US safety standards.
If you really wanna burn calories for aerobics,SWI is it!
(It also depends on what branch though)

These are our current locations: http://www.eclipsegym.com/contact.html

We'll have a Shaw branch (near Ortigas/MRT/Shangri-la) in January 2007 if you are willing to wait a couple of months.

Rates are here: http://www.eclipsegy...wtopic.php?t=80

Plus you can read about many of our programs and training philosophies for free on the forums. We answer questions and offer advice to show that we actively practice our business and are not just a bunch of slick talking salesmen/saleswomen in suits who can't really help you achieve your goals.

After the New Year Eclipse will be 1500 for 24 hours in both 24 hour branches which includes guidance and a managed program. Ongoing consultations are always free, and that's the value where you are paying probably about 1/10 of what you'd have to pay anthor gym who won't give a money-back guarantee or would have trainers that would answer and critique you for free (competitors force you to buy PT packages for help). We'll probably have a rate freeze for the Shaw opening and Mabini official grand opening.

Well if all you care about is "classes" (which experience has taught me is a complete waste of time) then FF is for you. If you want to make youself stronger, perform better, or simply look great at the beach, the Eclipse is worth FAR more than P2190 even though our rates will be about 690 less per month plus we're 24 hours.

well bro i don't blame you kung masyado ka apektado ng gym rates dhil kasama talaga sa pagiging praktikal yan
but let me just cite a few things para khit papano maliwanagan ka din:
1) dpat ung price na binabayaran mo sulit sa training na nkukuha mo
2) natutulungan kb ng mga instructors sa mga questions and concerns mo regarding training ng hinde mo n kelangan pa mag shell out extra payment?
3) ung program na binigay sau gaano kadalas ina-update para malaman kung may improvement ang strength mo?
4) ung equipments ba sa gym ay talagang nakakatulong para lumakas ka at lumaki?


syado mahal sa fitness kasi eh....... :)

ok naman sa slimmer's babait pa ng instructors... :lol: or probably depende lang kung cute ka :lol:


ok ka girl! sana lhat ng members ng slimmers maganda at cute din tulad mo...paano pla kung hinde cute, ibig ba sbihin nun nde na dpat pang tulungan?

ang lungkot naman pag ganyan ang sistema


i'm not surprised kung one of these days mag file ng bankruptcy ang slimmer's kung gnun ang sistemang umiiral sa mga staff nila...

SCREWED UP billing system really !!


I kinda agree with you. FF does not update their records right away. Naexperience ko pa bayad na ko tapos di ako makapasok...that month kasi i did not use cc, nag eps ako sa payment...apparently, di daw na log nung isang receptionist yung payment ko...good thing i keep all my receipts with me...other than that, ok naman...may mga trainer na deadma meron din naman mga mahilig mag assist... Sa crowd? Pag peak hours...masikip talaga pareho eh...

Kung sa spa/massage services naman, I heard from a friend, di daw ok sa slimmers pag dating dun. For me, dun laman FF. Accomodating and Body Care staff and competitively priced naman services nila.
