What they've said about us

What I never expected when meeting with Tad, was his ability from the beginning to ask all the right questions. He got me thinking about nutrition in a much deeper way. I have had a life long struggle with body image and a diet mindset. Tad has pushed me to look inside to really confront my personal obstacles and unhealthy lifelong habits. I am beginning to live a life no longer afraid of food. Good foods and bad foods no longer exist. For the first time ever, I feel free, no longer drowning in the social stigmas of a perfect body; no longer trapped by what I “should” be eating to reach my goals. Tad was the first person to ever truly see me and my struggles. He was willing to listen. He never once pushed his agenda on me

-Melissa L.

As someone who was just starting her fitness journey I was terrified of the idea of a gym. Then I joined Western. This isn't just a gym. I have never once felt judged and have always been greeted with such supportive and amazing people who work there. It's become my true happy place and I'm forever grateful


First of all it is spacious, well lit and clean. Locker rooms are top notch. So many programs and classes to keep you from getting bored and are fun. I have especially enjoyed the personal training that is available. They have a cafe and nutrition bar. There is just so much to mention. Best is to go check it out!!!


When you walk into the facility a staff member greets you. If you have questions or concerns, they are answered professionally and effectively. The overall look inside is inviting and clean. If you have a personal trainer experience - they do not judge or pressure you. The machines are up-to-date. I felt the members themselves were in a good mood, they had smiles and said hi.


Absolutely love this gym! The atmosphere, the endless equipment available, the prices, the people... top notch. I'd recommend this wonderful workout facility to anyone and everyone. Completely addicted to this beautiful place!


Western Racquet is literally the BEST gym out there! Mary, Owner at Western is always welcoming the members and ensuring everything is going well for everyone. The staff is also always very welcoming and willing to help anyone in anyway they can. If you’re looking for a gym, Western Racquet is definitely a place to consider.
