“Best of the Best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I've been a memeber at Red's for 19 years. If you've never been to Red's....it has to be seen to be believed! In my opinion, it's the FINEST club in the entire country!! You can ask what does it have, but the question has to be, what DOESN'T Red's have. State of the art weights, cardio, outdoor AND indoor pools, a mini water park for the kids, EVERY type of group excercise class you can imagine, the most knwledgeable staff anywhere, a complete snack bar serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, outdoor AND indoor tracks, basketball, tennis, raquetball....you get the idea. If you want to get into shape, Red's is THE place to be!!!

“Best Gym in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Red's by far is the best gym in town. It offers something for the whole family. Even good food. It is clean and updated with the latest equipment.

“Best gym in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Literally, this is the best gym in the world. and I am talking better than NYC, Vancouver, Singapore, Paris, Milan,...

Where to start. The cantina food is perfect for pre-post workouts, and I mean warm, real food, not just protein bars. The sheer amount of cardio machines tops any gym I have ever visited, and they are kept in excellent repair. The classes offered always cover what's popular like Zumba as well as standard favorites like yoga, spinning, pilates, and step, and these classes are offered multiple times daily. There is a great area to stretch and cool down or warm up, and there is every piece of equipment for wights and boxing that I have ever seen or heard off--and plenty of trainers standing by if you have questions. The lap pools, indoor and outdoor, are big enough for serious laps, and let me tell you that swimming laps amongst other swimmers at 5 a.m. when it is still dark, is a gorgeous thing. Plus the ice bath for injuries is fantastic, as are the women/men only saunas and whirlpools. Showers are plentiful and hot. There is nothing not to love, and I am very hard to please when it comes to exercise.

There is a child care facility and an area for children to work out, and they even get their own pool.
