Uno fitness is only 7$ for a day pass!!! Not 15-25$ like other local places.If you are in the area visiting it's a great value.They also offer one and two week passes for visitors at a great price.Onsite daycare included in cost but limited hours...see website www.unofitness.net...There is personal training available from a wide variety of trainers(both male and female)with a variety of styles including Core training,one on one and couples training.Group ftness classes are also available and included in cost.Classes include several levels of yoga,body pump,high and low intensity aerobics classes with and without weight training,kickboxing,step and several choices of classes,intensity levels and times to pick from.There is also several levels of spinning classes,combined spin/weights classes called spinergy. Classes also change from time to time for variety.The equipment is by far better quality,more variety and several of each piece to pick from...little to no waiting with weight equipment AND cardio machines.Includes Hammerstrength,Precor,Bosu,Cybex,free weights with no limitations,cable pulley systems,pin select machines and a huge variety of accesory equipment available for your use like Bosu and fitness balls,ab rollers,heavy bags and plenty of space to stretch and warm up,or to do do your core training.The gym is over 16,000sq.feet with separate areas for cardio and weight training, separate rooms for yoga,group fitness and spinning. The spinning room also has the best high tech equipment for the road and trail simulations shown on a large projection screen and accompanied by great music and lead by great instructors. All instructors are certified and you have the option to train with your own personal trainer or hire one from within. Uno also offers a few free training sessions with every membership and the staff is always there to help. The members are friendly too and being there is like being part of one big happy family. Very non-intimidating atmosphere. The locker rooms are clean,have showers and day use lockers and they are always clean.Cardio theater and TV's for the cardio machine area.Cardio machines are also top quality and lots to choose from.Uno is also an environmentally friendly gym,they don't promote plastic bottles and waste,there is filtered water available for all!!No paper towel waste either!! Uno does not have tanning or spa services, however they do have a hydromassage bed available in the gym and a full service day spa is on the same level and right next door to Uno.They offer steam rooms and dry saunas, a wide variety of massage therapy,hair,skin,nails,color,cuts and more.The day spa is called Rejuvenescence and it is a separate business,but the option and availability is there if you want it.If you have older kids that would not want to stay in the daycare or you workout at times when the daycare is not staffed, there is a "My Gym" franchise location on the same level next to Uno.Services at the spa and the My Gym are not associated with Uno fitness costs. I can't say enough good things about Uno.I've been there for 5 years and it's like a second home to me. Feeling comfortable and being surrounded by supportive people either staff members or other gym members is so important, especially when you are just starting out. Uno also offers the Silver Sneakers program for older adults,Martial arts and dance classes are also held onsite and a Physical therapy and rehabilitation center is also onsite and available at a separate cost.The cost of membership is on average 30$ a month, which is a dollar a day for all of these services, YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT!!! You can also pay in full,go month to month, get a contract or set up electronic payment.If you are looking for a one stop all inclusive fitness center that is NOT a "nightclub"or "pickup" spot or is over populated with "meat heads" than you will like it here...Uno doesn't chase away anyone, al are welcome no matter what your level of fitness is...beginner or body builder, young or old and I can tell you from experience....even pregnant women workout here!!! It is such a warm,welcoming and supportive atmosphere that even when the female members get pregnant they still stay motivated to stay fit and workout.
The classes,daycare,training,cardio,weights,lockers,yoga,spinning...etc. Best deal in Scranton by far!!! In addition, in the same complex as Uno is a coffee shop,Quizno's,laundromat,dry cleaner Italian restaurant and several doctor's offices,eye doctor and hearing specialist.
