This gym is wonderful, the best one I have ever joined. The best thing I have done for myself, which trickles down to everyone I know. I have been dealing with neck, shoulder and severe headache pain for a few years. I had pretty much given up excercising, everything hurt, I could feel my body getting stiffer and stiffer, I was gaining more and more weight. I had no energy, I was very winded just when walking around grocery shopping etc. We had a deal offered to us through our work to join shapes. I called, Pam with the long blonde hair answered, she was very nice, not pushy, she said why don't you come in and I will show you around. So I did, I told everyone there about my shoulder,neck, headache pain they all told me take it easy, stretch, don't do it if it hurts etc. By taking these classes with these ladies and getting advice on the machines there, and following their advice by stretching etc. I have lost weight, my blood work improved, my mobility has very much improved, I have ran/walked 2-5ks, put off surgery on my shoulder/neck area and don't take as much medicines as I was taking. The ladies there are very knowledgeable, and will help you with whatever you ask. I have taken Pool classes, Spin, Dance classes, Barre, Piloxing, Zumba and I still want to take some other classes they offer. I love all the ladies there and I appreciate them being there. Thank you all so much!!!!!!!

What I look for in a great gym is right here cardio,strength training ,personal training,great orientation of equipment. Very clean and offers disinfecting wipes for equipment etc. Since I work in a OSHA medical environment I find a clean and well taken care of gym my most important part of a good gym. Love the variety of classes like bodypump ,barre,yoga,pilates and especially kettle bell!! Our grandma loves the aqua classes too! Fitness instructors are all very knowledgeable and I can tell they want to help members get fit and use proper form during classes as to prevent injury. All the fitness instructors at shapes that I take classes from are motivating and bring high energy which makes their classes actually fun & very challenging to go to. I see great results of my fitness level and health and confidence level! I am thankful to the managers Erika & Tracy for the hard work they do to make this gym, classes and instructors the best it can be . My husbands grandmother and my daughters workout here too. Thanks Shapes 25 years plus of being your member for good reason!!!! Only a gym with heart has special donation breast cancer fit classes and other charites to help those in need. Cant say enough about once a month customer appreciation day where they give us special treats and fun workout activitties feel so happy & proud to be a member at SHAPES!'

There is not enough room on this page to say how grateful I am to have found Shapes.I have been a member for about a year and a half now and the results i have gotten are remarkable.. I was told with my medical conditions that I needed to start working out and build strength and muscle and lose weight.. So far I have lost quite a bit of weight and im down 3 sizes and Im so much stronger than I was a year ago. This is all due to the trainers at Shapes. Everyone really cares about you here..Tracy started me off in the pool. I lost enough weight to get into the gym, from there Erica helped me with getting stronger and worked on my posture.Now a class with Lana, kicks my butt , but I love it. Then there's Leanne's boot camp that is the most fun of all.. They offer so many different classes, there is something for everyone, young and older gals.. So, thank you to everyone at Shapes, xoxoxoxo

Awesome! From the moment I walked in the door, I loved it! The staff was amazing, very welcoming and friendly, everyone was happy and smiling! This is the perfect place for women to take care of themselves and be taken care of. Plenty of cardio equipment, awesome cycling room with the latest and greatest new bikes, beautiful aerobics room with real wood floors, a pool, hot tub, steam rooms and nice locker rooms! And the walls are an incredible girlie PINK!! As a Fitness Trainer for nearly 20 years I'm so excited about having a new place to get away and have fun taking care of "me" and be able to enjoy spending time with my girlfriends! In my opinion, it's perfect in every way!

Seven months ago. I joined Shapes for Women in west Bradenton. At that time I was very much over weight and could hardly walk any distance. I am now, down 45 lbs. and 14 inches overall.. They say, " It takes a Village" and I agree.. All of the gals at Shapes have played a roll in my success. The trainers, the owner, the girls at the desk have all in someway helped me get healthier. I have not felt this good in a very long time.. The struggle is real , the work is hard, the rewards are awesome!!! Im getting closer to my goals every day and I thank you all for the encouragement and the love.... xoxoxoxo

This is a great fitness club. The trainers are very friendly, fun and knowledgeable. There is a wide array of classes (zumba, body pump, step, body flow, yoga, water classes, spin) lots of equipment, a great pool, steam room sauna and jacuzzi. The yearly membership price is very affordable. I have been going to this location for many years and though there are many health clubs in my neighborhood, this is the best club for price and quality of service. Also, the club is very clean. I highly recommend. The owner is wonderful, she listens to her clientele.
