Fitworks is a chain of fitness clubs throughout Ohio and Kentucky that strive to make fitness as fun as it is beneficial. Each location provides a host of exercise classes and opportunities that are geared to all ages and fitness levels. This company got its start in 1996 and claims to employ more than 300 staff members with over 40 years of experience. All employees of Fitworks are supposedly committed to one thing – the success of their clients in reaching their fitness goals. The company has a central website that provides information about the company, including the specific locations, programs and special offers.

The Fitworks website is easy to navigate and provides ample information about the centers. Consumers can read customer testimonials and “shop” through the wide variety of programs that are included. The website also includes prices for memberships, which are currently available through a number of different specials. Members can also host private parties for a group that are perfect for birthdays, bridal showers, corporate team building or guys/girls nights out.

Product Features

Fitworks appears to be a fairly typical fitness center that offers a variety of group classes and personal training. The company also offers an exclusive PST program that is supposedly designed to “transform your body in three easy steps.” The cardio cinema rooms feature 15′ screens to watch television or movies during your workouts. The group power classes provide 60 minutes of serious weight training while the interactive arcade offers a number of video games designed to get you up and moving. The arcade is available to club members and non-members alike, but it is not found at all Fitworks locations.

The current membership special offers customers the opportunity to enroll in Fitworks for one dollar and maintain a membership for just $20 a month. This price is fairly reasonable for a gym membership, although the website did not specify whether there was a minimum amount of months that must be purchased to qualify for the deal. The company is also offering a free 21-day trial offer to allow customers the chance to try out the facility before committing to a full membership.

  • Fitworks offers exercise opportunities in a fun group environment.
  • The monthly fee is reasonable and a free trial membership is available.


  • The clubs are only located in a limited number of locations.
  • Joining a health club and committing to a daily workout are often two different things.
  • The program does not include nutrition education.


Membership to a health club is a positive step on the road to weight loss and better health. If you live in the vicinity of a Fitworks facility, this may be a good choice for your fitness needs. However, joining and committing to the daily program are often two different things. We recommend including a low calorie diet and proven weight loss supplement with your gym membership to maximize the weight loss benefits of your new fitness program.

    I have been a member at fitworks forest park since 1991, since they have remodeled the club they took TVs off individual equipment so now u have to watch whats only on TVs on wall,I’ve tried to use my ipad so I could probably get my netflicks but need passcode to sogn on fitworks network, ask staff they say there is none or they just don’t know what it is? They use to have internet on equipment so is there a code for public or not and if so is it availiable if not it would be nice for the club, with what we pay it should be availiable

    The Fitworks in West Chester is very impressive! The staff are all friendly and very helpful, great environment and s many fitness options to choose from! I have been a member for almost 12 years now and would recommend this gym to everyone, and have done so. I have lost over 100 pounds and have been able to keep it off! I love Fitworks!

    Fitworks Parma, it’s a waste of money and time. They Changed the terms of my contract by charging more money after 3 months and changing my membership features like free classes and free guest. I will NOT recommend to anybody.

    Fitworks, Richmond Hts, is a complete waste of money.First, the trainer who originally signed me up made promises that $3000 later have yet to come to fruition. I signed with a trainer who frequently canceled sessions and demonstrated that my time was not important. The manager of the training department never called me ahead of time or bothered to find me another trainer. Also, bathrooms are frequently filthy and unsanitary while members of th gym have tried intimidating me and called me names such as “retarded mother f***er”.The work ethic of the gym is sub standard and I could’ve bought a car with the money I spent with a trainer. I am reporting this gym to the Better Business Bureau

    This is the second time this week I have had to complain about no cleaners or paper towels to the staff. It’s Sunday afternoon and there is no reason why they can’t be checked. Fitworks in West Chester doesn’t seem to care.

    Fitworks in Willoughby Ohio (and surrounding areas) have given their group fitness members the shaft. Want us to pay for classes and when we refused, they continue to cut classes. Don’t join, go somewhere else

    I joined Fitworks in Newport, Kentucky. Less than one week after I joined they canceled all their morning classes. I have tried contacting Fitworks and have been given the run around, told to cal different numbers and ultimately been told their is no possible way to get any kind of refund. I was charged more than they had written on my statement. I was extremely disappointed with the fitness centers costumer services and honest. I would never recommend anyone join this fitness center.
