This is by far the best gym I have been to. It is small but has everything you need. People are very friendly and they have free coffee, WiFi and charging stations for phones. They gym is very clean, has nice sauna and showers. Free yoga and exercise classes. Can't say enough good about this place.

Appreciate the videos in the gym with hints and demonstrations about how to improve your workout routine.

It is nice that they let you work out without your shirt. That helps with exercise form.

Although everyone is welcome, this is unabashedly a gay gym.

When visiting Palm Springs, I usually stay at the gay hotels Bearfoot Inn, InnDulge or Vista Grande because they give you free passes to the gym.

This is a small, very poorly equipped hive of 3 or 4 rooms calling itself a gym. They attempt to cater to the gay community, but the attitude of the desk staff is beyond rude. There is a shirts optional policy, and it is not uncommon to see specimens flaunting physiques which are not what one would hope to see. The average Hampton Inn has a comparable amount of resistance equipment, and while in the "gym", one has the odd feeling that there are some very sketchy things going on just out of sight. I found myself checking around for hidden cameras for fear that I had unwittingly stumbled into some bizarre porno film shoot.

The one bright side is that, because the place is so dead, there is no competition for the 4 or 5 pieces of equipment they have. Oh... and the place is expensive.

Thank you for your review.

I want to personally apologize if the front desk staff was rude to you. We do try to be as helpful as possible to all guests who use our facility and there is never an excuse for rudeness. I am disappointed that you did not feel comfortable in our location. We do have a shirtless workout policy which allows for anyone, regardless of physique or body type, to enjoy.

Our 3,800 square foot facility is divided into multiple rooms for ease of use including class room, cardio room and weight room. I'm sorry the 14-machine circuit, free weights and benches, ellipticals, treadmills, stair master or spin bikes could not meet your needs, though I do believe we are larger than most hotel gyms. Being the 4th largest gym in Palm Springs, we also have the cheapest day pass rate. We are also consistently rated well by travelers, locals and publications.

I encourage you to come back for another visit and ask for me. I will gladly provide a tour of all the facilities amenities and answer any questions you may have so that you can enjoy the WorkOUT experience we intend for everyone to have. We are one of the smaller gyms in town, but strive to always make sure everyone is welcome and able to reach their fitness goals.

Thank you again.

This is a gem in the desert.
I'm here for two months and am SO glad I joined when I arrived. It's a small space, but has all the equipment and sauna you need, and the staff couldn't be friendlier. The locker room is tight (as are the showers), but it works well.

I much prefer this to the more popular Worlds Gym. All the machines one could want, and the staff very friendly and accommodating.
