“Quick, good, and filling”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We eat lunch at Red's often, after a workout. It's very reasonably priced, prepared quickly, there's great variety for such a tiny place, and it's very fitness-conscious. The chili dogs are great!

I only wish the protein shakes were available without sugar, as I find them too sweet. Everyone else likes them, though, and the flavor choices are good.

I'm so glad to be able to grab lunch here on my way to work.

“First Class Facility”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Wow, this place is full service. Exercise, shower, eat, and socialize! Never had one complaint here except parking can be a hassle but I always found a place. Always clean and lots and lots of activities. Never a dull moment.

“Awesome place!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

There's no better place to get in shape. Build muscle, improve cardio, play ball, run, indoor or outdoor. Food is outstanding and pro shop stocked with the latest gear. The owner is at the front desk almost every time I visit which doesn't happen many places anymore. Always new equipment coming in and arrive people always cleaning or maintaining the facility. It just doesn't get any better than Reds Health & Racquet Club.

“Extremely Overrated”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

It's interesting what one will settle for. Among so much praise for a gym there's blindness for how complacent one can become. This gym says it offers so much (thats called clever marketing) charges an outrageous fee to join initially then fails to deliver. I have visited this gym in this small town for many years and I find that things that need fixing and that would undoubtedly be taken care of by the fees charged, in fact go unnoticed i.e. there are broken items throughout the facility, be it in the locker room or on the exercise floors, unprofessional behavior by its staff which includes the ever lingering blind racism and discrimination that still persists in the south. There are outdated cardio machines, parking is less than accommodating and staff are not always knowledgeable. Thats just a few of the many things wrong with this so called state of the art gym. The fact that folks call this a premier or more to the point "the premier" gym is only because this facility is in a small town and there's no real competition going against it making it seem like a monopoly. Having lived in every major and I should add, more advanced cities in this great country, I have witnessed true state of the art gym facilities and this one called "Reds" falls very far behind the standard of so many other gyms. I remain unimpressed with this gym and its staff especially considering what it charges and what it actually says it provides vs what IT actually does provide. In a nutshell it fails to deliver compared to so many other and much more positive and rewarding experiences I've had.
