I've been going to AussieFIT in Hilliard for a few months now and have been very happy with the place. There is a TON of cardio equipment that is well kept, a very well stocked free weight area, and a large variety of Nautilus machines. I also appreciate that the women's locker room is reasonably clean (for a fitness center at least). The problem started this morning. When I arrived for my usual 5:30 am workout with my workout buddy, we found that the area that we normally use for mat/ball work had been corded off. There was a sign stating that the area was for use only when accompanied by a personal trainer. If the area is intended for that use, that's fine. But there wasn't a soul in the whole area. The trainers weren't even taking clients back there. We ended up laying mats out literally in the middle of the weight machines as a last resort.If there was a group training session that was taking place in the early morning hours that needed that space, that's fine. But the fact that there was no activity – and there rarely is that early in the morning – in basically the only free floor space in the gym was a slap in the face. AussieFIT is essentially alienating anyone that chooses to not hire a personal trainer. Unfortunately, a trainer is not in everyone's budget. Going to exercise should be a positive, encouraging experience for everyone - not just those that have a trainer. It's unfortunate that what is potentially such a bright, energetic, happy place has decided to make ANYONE feel alienated and uncomfortable. AussieFIT has made it quite clear that unless you're using the machinery or are accompanied by a trainer, any floor work is not welcome. I am now shopping for a new place to go on the two whole days a week that we do weights/floor exercises. And maybe somewhere that will welcome us on our 3 cardio days as well. Quite a shame that a paid membership just isn't enough anymore!
Columbus East AussieFit1. Always too hot ...winter, summer ..always. Its a gym , not a coffee house. Running on a treadmill in a 80 deg. room sucks. Use that A/C! 2. Very crowded after 4 pm, and reviewer ;sunny.davis. is correct , they made the crowding problem worse by roping off a large part of the main room for some gimmicky TRX and KickBox crap. 3. The music they play over the house system is tailored to 14 year old girls, but not to worry.. if you happen to workout after 5:30pm the loud music from the group fitness room along with the new TRX , KickBox music will drown out some of the house system`s Miley Cyrus leaving you with an headache inducing mash-up of three different sound systems blasting you all at once. 4. If your favorite machine breaks down (say, a common cable snaps) , be ready to find something else to use for a month or two. Repairs on machines are very slow. (Currently, a shoulder press machine cable replacement is still down after a month+) 5. The locker room/ restroom REALLY needs a exhaust fan, no explanation needed here. Why am I still a member? ...Friends who I work out with are members, price.
I moved here from out of town and I needed a hair stylist. I am very particular on who does my hair. I don’t allow everybody to do my hair because everybody can’t do hair. I went online and came across Salon One. I am so happy that I went to Salon One because my hair is fabulous!! My hair stylist name is Paris and she has done a wonderful job on my hair. Paris is sweet, kind, respectful, funny, sophisticated, and professional. She provides excellent service! When I book my appointments, she is on time and she doesn’t have me seating there for hours. She doesn’t overbook and has me in and out on time. She does natural hair and weaves. She did two sew ins for me and I loved it! When I first met her, she asked me what was my hair goal because my hair was thin, short and damage. I told her I wanted my hair to be long and thick. She has been working on achieving this goal and I am very pleased with the results. My hair has grown thick and has length. She doesn’t put any damage chemicals in my hair to make a quick buck. Every product she puts in my hair she explains why and how it works. My family and friends love my hair!
Very good job overall. They had speedy service, I was attended to within minutes of stepping in the door. Vivianne(?) was the girl who serviced me. After hearing a general idea of what I wanted, she offered up her handmade dip powder ( I needed a more neutral color because of work). The staff was considerate, I got offered a drink within 15 minutes of being there. The price is a little steep, I don't think I would come back every two weeks to get it redone; but definitely worth coming back in general. Especially if vivianne was my nail tech. She made sure (very very sure) that my nails were even and buffed the nail tips so well, I couldn't feel the difference between my nail and the fake tip. Highly recommend!
