I really wanted to like this place because it seemed like a scrappy family place. I ended my membership because it is extremely expensive if you're not into racquet sports. I just canceled my membership and calculated that I spent $95 a month for the first four months. The monthly fee is $69 and then there's an initiation fee of $50 plus a yearly maintenance fee of $39. I visited a nearby gym that has more amenities and lower month to month price and made the choice to cancel. In order to cancel my membership I had ask the front desk and they gave me their corporate business card. Then you have to go to a website, register a login name, call a number, get put on hold at a call center. You then have to write an email to the fitness company requesting a cancellation. After 3-5 business days the company will cease billing you after 30 days. Now that I wrote all this out, I've even more steadfast in my separation from this place.

In all due respect this is a fantastic gym to have joined. The personal trainer Chase is a magnificent personal trainer. My son and I found the fitness regime adequate and yielded the results we hoped to achieve. Nick the owner was understanding of the contract that I had to break due to my position at my job that was eliminated abruptly. He could have held me to the legally binding contract I signed yet had enough mercy and understanding as a human to not enforce it. Grace and kindness are not in abundance in this world so its truly magical when your are blessed to have it. This was an incredible experience that I will be forever grateful for. Kindness and love are my currency. Gratitude to Nick(owner) and Chase (PT).

Love this gym. Very clean, good variety of weight equipment, and excellent coffee. I love that line dancing is offered and wish there were more dance classes. Zumba early afternoon weekdays would be perfect. Also, I think that when masks are recommended indoors (as in right now), they should be required. Still, many people in the gym are masking anyway so which makes me feel safer, same I have noticed that people are meticulous about wiping down the equipment. Would like to see the front desk lead by example in masking. I'm very glad I joined.

Lloyd Athletic Club is the way a gym should be: inclusive, welcoming, and equipped with all that you could need (machines, strength training, free weights, bikes, court sports, saunas, hot tubs, and more). Both the employees and the patrons are super friendly and respectful. Skip the giant corporate gyms and support local.

I used to come here begrudgingly because it's the only place on the east side to play squash. But since new ownership took over a couple years, staff is way more friendly, everything is cleaner, and it feels more like a community. Great beers on tap as well!

This is my favorite gym! It has all the machines and locker rooms amenities that I’ve had at pretty fancy gyms but with a more friendly atmosphere. The owners and staff are all really nice, and I like the variety of members who go there. It feels inclusive and not intimidating. And, if you make it on the right weekend day, you might get to see Fozzie, the sweetest gym dog you’ll ever meet. Also, parking is easy, and the price is really reasonable for a gym with free towels, sauna, steam room, and hot tub. Lloyd Athletic Club is a rare gem.

I’ve been a member at L.A.C. since 2019 and have stuck around because the staff make you feel so welcomed and at home here! They treat you like a community member, rather than just another faceless name like at a bigger corporate gym.Though the fees may be a little bit higher than at some other places, you get the satisfaction of supporting a local business that gives back to the community. Nick, the owner, is a personable and down-to-earth business owner who genuinely cares about his staff and his customers. He made sure to prioritize his staff and club members’ well-being during the quarantine, keeping the business afloat and staff employed so we had a community to come back to once it was safe.On top of that, the hot tub, steam room and sauna always help me unwind after a strenuous workout. The beer on tap and complimentary coffee make it feel like not only a gym, but a place to kick back and relax after a long day.L.A.C. helped me stay healthy and connected to my community through the ups and downs of the global pandemic. If you’re on the fence about getting a membership here, DO IT! You won’t regret your choice!

Our family was looking for a gym that would work for all of us (two teens two adults). We love that this gym is friendly, with great staff and accessible equipment. We haven’t used the personal trainers but I’ve observed many working with clients and they seem very knowledgeable and are super friendly and personable. It’s a very low pressure, laid back environment and we love it!

I recently began my membership at LAC and have been so, so impressed by their staff and their business model as a whole. They will work closely with you to find a plan the fits your budget, and will make you feel immediately at home in an environment that is inclusive and comfortable. Tell your friends! LAC is where it's at!

I love the vibe at LAC, very chill and welcoming to all. Working with Trent for a few personal training sessions has been great as well. He was very attentive to my specific needs and helped me create a workout regimine that is safe and effective. The locker room facilities are also super great, they inspire me to workout so that I get a mini spa day after:)

I've really enjoyed my time at Lloyd Athletic Club! The atmosphere is laid back and inviting. All of the employees are amazing and have made me feel welcome. I've been working with Trent for the last couple of months and it's been a great experience. I've learned so much about weight-lifting and exercising from our bi-weekly sessions. He's been encouraging and supportive. He's always positive and makes me look forward to my training sessions. I would highly recommend this gym to anyone in the Portland area!

I recently joined Lloyd Athletic Club and thus far, I am thrilled with what I am seeing and experiencing at this gym. There are never lines to use the machines or free weights, the shower and locker room area are always clean and neat, the people are friendly and the staff is helpful. What's not to like?!I was a member at 24 Hour Fitness in the the past and what a contrast. At 24 Hour Fitness the locker rooms were dirty and there was always water on the floor, the showers lacked hot water, you had to wait to use many of the machines and weights and there were no free towels.Contrast that with free, clean towels, a never super busy gym, clean, secure locker rooms and a steam room, sauna and whirlpool and you have gym perfection! I am sooo glad I found Lloyd Athletic Club and will continue to be a happy member for the foreseeable future.

This is a great facility for someone looking for something different in Portland gym wise. This location is inclusive, spacious and well kept. I honestly left places like Planet Fitness because they are crowded and messy. Also, they don’t make you uncomfortable because there is no sales reps. I didn’t feel pressured to sign up for something I didn’t want. Also, be sure to ask about prices because they do a great job of taking care of any needs you might have gym wise. Honestly, this is the best experience I’ve had in a PDX gym.

Can't recommend this gym enough. The owner really cares and puts a lot of thought into perfecting the gym's vibe and amenities. The staff are always genuine and kind, the wet & dry sauna are truly killer, and the communities you'll see forming here over events and activities is so much more than I'd ever expect to find in a gym. It's a gem, pun intended.Thank you all

I have had my membership with Lloyd Athletic club off and on for 10 years now and I always come back because I've had such a lovely experience with them. The new owners are even better!They are incredibly flexible and really value their members. The facilities are great, and both the staff and the members are respectful and friendly.I have had memberships with bigger gyms in-between (due to location) and I always come back because I'd rather travel to a gym that I enjoy vs going to one where I don't matter.I highly recommend Lloyd athletic club. You won't regret it.

I think I already wrote an evaluation of trainer Justin Olson, but in case I didn't, I want to compliment him hugely. I am 79 years of age, and he treats me with the greatest respect and care. He is very careful to make sure none of my joints will be damaged by any of the machines. Today, we had an hour training session, and on several of the machines I told him it was hurting my shoulder, and he stopped me after 2-3 tries and we tried two or three similar machines until he found ones that I could dowithout hurting my shoulder. He is very well organized, and I trulyappreciate and like Justin. He's a great trainer. I'm so glad he's "mytrainer."Marian Drake, member

Truly a gem of Portland. Affordable, friendly, welcoming staff, well-maintained and clean.I had to cancel since I had moved away; Nick and his staff were understanding and accommodating in canceling the contract early. They really treat you as a human! No corporate gym would do that.Hope to move back to Portland one day and join again!

This is by far the best gym ever. I've been coming here for 13 years now. It has a warm home town feel instead of the cold industrial environment that most gyms have. They have a great selection of group classes and Regina -one of the instructors- is kind of a living legend and hero to us all.

I have been a member hear for almost 8 years. This is an independently owned gym owned by a person who loves the gym and wants to make a good, welcoming place for all sorts of people. It has a personal feel where people are respectful of eachother and make small talk in a way that is the exact opposite of what I've felt at the chains like LA Fitness or 24 Hour Fitness. The equipment is in good shape and the dry sauna and whirlpool in the locker rooms are a good treat when you just want to escape the rain. During the period gyms were allowed to be open during CORONA virus, they did a great job enforcing mask wearing at all times, providing wipes to clean equipment, and spacing out the equipment. I really love the place and hope they endure this tough time for so many small businesses.

Love the atmosphere of this gym, especially for someone who doesn't generally like going to gyms to workout, this gym is my speed! There's lots of space in the group fitness rooms to workout (somewhat privately) when classes aren't in session, and a great selection of classes to chose from if/when you feel like joining a group. All the equipment you could possibly need, and everything is kept very clean! Staff is very friendly and welcoming as well!

My partner and I shopped around many Portland gyms before settling in here and we really found our home. The body positivity and welcoming feel are not found often at gyms. The classes with Regina reignited my desire to exercise!! I would recommend this place for anyone looking for the encouragement and motivation to be the best version of yourself!!

I would recommend this gym over any other in Portland. The staff works so hard to keep it clean and inviting for everyone. Everyone who works here is so friendly. I love the spin classes the most! Thank you Lloyd Athletic Club!

Was hesitant to return to my longtime favorite gym, by way of any gym during COVID, but saw a group class was finally offered, which I have greatly missed, and after speaking with the helpful Front Desk person, decided to try it out.The gym is very clean, quiet and welcoming. Their vigilance to maintain safety and cleanliness is quite evident.With a mask, and socially distanced from my classmates, I took Andree's Power Pump 60 class and it was fantastic to be exercising this way again. Andree was as focused and exuberant as ever. We were all saying how much we've missed it, and how much better we felt after class.Exercise classes are so helpful on many levels, especially during these challenging times. It's a great relief to be able to work out in a class structure again! And I can't wait for when they are able to offer group classes more often during the week with Andree and hopefully Regina returns soon as well.

Quick update on my one star review form 8/7/20. Up to date, neither the billing company nor the LAC owner have reached out to me to settle my inquiry, not even saying about issuing the partial refund. Even after submitting a charge back, I still have been trying to collect my money, but no one has replied to my requests or answered my direct questions. At this point, the billing company "points fingers" to the owner, and the owner ignores my requests. Also, no one has given me the argumentation of the legality of the request to submit the relocation documentation which is not written in the contract, but they still demand to submit it just because they "feel it is not too much to ask". So much for "continue to work with the member", right? It has been more than 6 weeks since my cancellation inquiry has been unresolved. If you advertise your business as "the best gym" then act like it as well.The gym overall is OK, been a member for more than two years, but the finance team is incompetent! I asked for a partial refund on my full prepaid membership due to relocation and was required to send a PROOF of my relocation (a new lease contract, utility bills, etc) which is the ILLEGAL requirement and NOT written in a membership agreement! They denied the refund even through the contract says that it can be cancelled at any point of time with no reason. This company, obviously, doesn't value its members and is doing everything to not give your money back! If you don't want to be ripped off and value your time and money, choose another gym.Reply to the owner:Hello,First - I was not offered the refund, I was told I didn't qualify for it.Second - I have asked the owner and the billing company multiple times on what legal basis do they require to submit my relocation documentation (my new lease, utility bills, new Ids, etc.) if the agreement does not have any clauses related to submitting the documentation as proof of relocation, or any other purpose whatsoever? I still have not receive the answer to my question!!! Which leads to the fact that the request to submit my relocation documentation is NOT LEGIT! Not saying that the request totally violates my privacy.Third - Whenever "you don't feel that is too much to ask" has nothing to do with the agreement. You cannot request anything from a member that is not written in the agreement. But that is what you continue doing, just to not issue a refund!Never thought that cancelling the membership at the gym could be such a hassle!Regards,Iryna

I LOVE Lloyd to such an extent. I am particular about where I decide to go and Lloyd ticked all the crates. They have the best fitness coaches (and other staff are likewise very sweet/accommodating), incredible luxuries as far as storage spaces and hardware, and head of such greatness, I don't feel strange/off-kilter/awkward working out there, which is extremely pleasant. This has been one of my preferred rec centers up until now and I am truly so dismal that CoVid happened on the grounds that we simply don't feel sufficient about getting back in the gym....I miss the step stepper and all the astonishing weight/obstruction gear

Lloyd Athletic Club is one of the best gyms I’ve ever been to! Clean, courteous and helpful staff, and the training room downstairs with squat rack and deadlift platform was a huge bonus for me. The clientele are all friendly and courteous as well. There’s even a small half court basketball hoop to get some shots up! I’ve moved out of the area so I unfortunately am no longer attending, but if you’re in Portland and need a great local gym, look no further. When I had to cancel my membership, Nick was awesome about it. Thanks for everything Lloyd team!

Prior to being a LAC member, I had never been a member of a local club and wow! What a difference in service there is from the major gym chains. The staff are super helpful and have always listened to any questions, concerns, or feedback. You can't beat the location of this spot either and the neighborhood feel. The owners are constantly looking for ways to improve and update the gym. They also have amazing classes! I have never been more sore than after a session of The Lift or Cardio Kickboxing. Highly recommend!

I have been a member of Lloyd Athletic Club for about three or four years and began seeing Carlee Roe at Portland Personal Training (located at Lloyd) last August though due to traveling and then the pandemic, I didn't have access to training from January through June. Now that the gym has reopened in Phase 1, I have started back for the past few weeks. Carlee and the staff at Lloyd Athletic Club/Portland Personal Training have been following protocol for making the gym and equipment safe for us to use. The club is requiring everyone inside the building to wear masks and to sanitize their hands before beginning to work out, stairways are one direction, and all equipment is sanitized before and after working out during training. Since racquetball is not being played right now, the courts are being used by the trainers and clients so there's lots of space to be physically distanced from each other (there's just two of us in this court). There are hand sanitizing stations in various places in the building as well. The staff are making sure to count the # of people in the gym at any given time so that there's plenty of space and no chance of any crowding at all. I feel safe using the gym in this manner, and Carlee makes me work much harder than I would if I was doing this on my own, especially because sometimes, at age 65, I just want to be lazy. She's cheerful so it's hard to get mad at her for making me bust my butt :-

Have been back since Portland entered Phase 1 - I can't tell you how great it is to be working out here again. This place is fantastic. Friendly staff, all the equipment I need and then some, and easy to get my workout in and go. The staff have made the entire experience as safe and possible. Masks are required and they ask you to wash your hands before and after your workout. One-way flow of traffic prevents people from crossing paths in crowded hallways and stairwell. There are multiple stations all over the gym with sanitizer spray and towels and every patron I've seen wipes down all the equipment after each use. The staff also make it a point to sanitize the equipment multiple times a day. I've gone to the gym in the morning, afternoon, and evening and there is always someone in that time actively cleaning the gym. If you need a place to work out and are okay social distancing in public, then Lloyd Athletic Club is the place for you. No fuss, no upselling - just a clean gym with friendly staff and trainers who care about their workout community.

Not in their hands i know, but they shouldn’t have promised.THEN.. when i try to freeze my account, the servicer cannot find my account anywhere even though i e-mailed them the full payment and account confirmation that i had made. I just moved out of state and The owner denied my refund even though i didn’t get to use this gym even once.

I have really enjoyed my time at LAC since purchasing my membership a year ago. It is one of the few places in Portland to play squash with regularity. The staff are great, especially Derek.

This gym is a good place to go to experience the community the Lloyd district has to offer.

I have been going to the LAC for several months now and love it. There aren't many places in town to play Squash and this has been the perfect place to establish a regular squash routine. The club is affordable and the staff is always friendly and helpful. Shelby is great and somehow knows me on a first name basis even though we have only met a few times. I highly recommend the LAC to anyone looking for an affordable friendly place to get a workout.

Newton’s first law states that a body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by a external force. Lloyd personal training was what I needed to put that resting body into motion - every single person I’ve interacted with at Lloyd Personal Training and Lloyd Athetlic Center has increased that momentum and I don’t ever want to stop. Thank you everyone at Lloyd personal training for helping me get in the best shape of my life.

Best thing I’ve done in a long time. Nice club. Great people. Neighborhood feel. Lots of nice new touches and remodels. Never too crowded, especially mid-day.

Solid club for the price point. Fairly big facility with 6 racquetball courts, 3 squash courts, all cardio and weight equipment, body weight room, cycle studio, etc. Locker rooms have sauna, hot tub, and steam rooms. Staff is very nice - tip of the hat to Bill in the mornings who makes the 5am shift ever so much more tolerable. You won't find any better for this price point.

I'm newish to Portland, (about 2 years), and came with big plans to start new leaf program, and get into shape. I found Lloyd Athletic Club within a few months, and especially I found a trainer who has been amazing. Justin is extremely knowledgeable, competent, and experienced. But especially, he has been terrific at intuiting what I specifically need to be motivated. He's been my trainer now for about a year and a half, and this is the first time I've ever stayed with a trainer or any kind of regimen for this long. And I've had MANY previous efforts! I have no plans to stop anytime soon, and I'm sure I owe it to Justin's expertise, and his kind, fun demeanor.

Love this club! Especially being part of the early morning crowd. The front desk service is so friendly and helpful. Always ready with a fresh hot towel or a bag of ice if I need it. Hands down the best club in Portland, as shown by winning the best gym in Portland award again this year.

I've been a member of Lloyd Athletic Club for over twenty years, and have known many folks who work there. By far Bill is the best. He not only does he do a great job at the front desk but we also see him in the locker room so you know he cares about the place. He's always cheerful and funny.

Billy makes it happen every morning! His positive attitude helps start my day off right. I see him working hard running a tight ship and that's no easy task so early at a busy club. Lloyd Athletic is a better place because of having this guy on their team!

After a national athletic club stopped supplying towels I moved to LLOYD Athletic club. It’s a one owner (and he’s on site often). Happy to say it’s monthly was less the the people were very easy to work with. “Billy” is at the front desk most all the time and has always made an effort.

Great local gym with all the weights, cardio and exercise equipment you need. Excellent group of trainers as well. The gym has shown significant improvement over the past few months under new management although their showers continue to be water-pressure challenged. A shout out to the excellent front desk staff particularly Bill who opens in the wee hours of the mornings Monday-Thursday. Thanks for the excellent support and friendly customer service Bill!

I have been lifting weights for over 20 years, and been a member of many gyms; University gyms, globo gyms, home gyms, jungle gyms...you name it. Lloyd Athletic Club is, without question, the best.I feel like a part of something when I arrive, rather than a dollar sign. There is a true sense of community. Billy H., who works the front desk, is incredible. I rarely feel this welcome in any facet of my life, let alone the gym at 6am!The trainers are great, and invested in their clients. The equipment isn't cutting edge but it is serviceable, and weight is weight regardless of age. Whatever it lacks in newness it makes up for 100 times over in personality.This gym puts a smile on my face. I enjoy being there, and would recommend it to anyone of any skill level.

Joining any new Gym can be a daunting and intimidating experience but as soon as I walked into Lloyd Athletic Club, Billy made me feel right at home. He gave me a tour of the facility, answered all of my questions and did not pressure me to join. I joined that day on a month to month basis to try it out but soon decided that it lived up to the hype of the best in Portland and signed up for 2 years. Nick, the Manager made this process easy and was great in getting my account switched over. Bottom line, this is an excellent club in Portland with a great staff and nice facilities. Highly recommend!

This is a fine place to work out, attend fitness classes, or engage in racquet sports. I have always found the staff to be friendly, and the attention which they give is personal and individualized. The weight rooms have a wide variety of machines. You never see people having to wait to get on one machine or another. The free weight area is well stocked. The courts are well maintained and frequently resurfaced. The locker room was recently renovated and boasts a steam room, a sauna, and large hot tug in addition to showers and toilet facilities. The cost of being a member is quite reasonable. I would recommend it to a friend without reservation.

If you’re considering, definitely a great choice! Locally owned it was just what I was looking for given that I’m not in a position to commit to a year long contract. The facilities are clean, the equipment works, the staff is very friendly! The owner was in when I walked in and was willing to work with my situation.

Went in here because the LA Fitness nearby was closed. Glad we did! Met the owner and got a tour. We had very specific parameters (only needed a membership for two months) and he was willing to work with us to find a very fair rate. Facilities are nice and clean and it’s relatively not busy.

So far everyone on the staff has been very nice and helpful! I love that there is an option to choose from a functional training room or a standard weight room for workouts. The weight room has a variety of equipment and is spread out so you dont feel like you are constantly on top of everyone else!

I've been a member here for a few years and I cannot say enough positive things about Lloyd Athletic Club. From the member amenities (shaving cream, deodorant, shampoo, FREE TOWEL SERVICE among many others), friendliness from the staff, 4 beers on tap (and cider!), rx, perfect bars and snacks, modern and clean equipment, spacious stretching areas, many many classes, cycling studio, dance studio, I could go on and on. This place is definitely a gem of east side Portland and should be first consideration when thinking about buying a membership to a gym in PDX. Come check this place out!!! 10/10

Such a great gym. Great equipment and a nice gym setup. Older feel to the gym but feels more personable. You don’t have to worry about someone trying to sell you on training every time you walk through the door. No gym bros and a very friendly staff. Normal membership pricing, lots of racket ball courts. They also have some beers on tap 🙂

Great local gym. Trainers are very knowledgeable and flexible. Everyone here is friendly and don't mind helping you. Great classes, atmosphere and free towels. The sauna and hot tubs are a plus. Great hours too. Must try.

Great club. We were having problems with the handball vs racquetball court reservations and the new owner stepped in and made the necessary changes so it’s fair. They’re also keeping the court lights repaired and wood floors cleaner than prior ownership. Best gym in Portland!

I love LAC and consider it a treasure outside the ranks of corporate gyms. I became a member this year, and have also signed up for combination personal training and unlimited group training. I couldn't be happier with my choice of gyms. I hope it never goes away!!

Lloyd Athletic Club is the best place to play squash, and workout in Portland. The prices are extremely affordable, the squash community is wonderful, and you can have a nice cold beverage after playing! LAC where gym meets community hang out spot!

I have loved my personal and group training experience so far at Lloyd Athletic Club. It has a very comfortable vibe and all trainees are extremely helpful at answering basic questions without judgement. Adam is a very knowledgeable personal trainer and goes above and beyond to communicate with me in between sessions. Same can be said for the group trainer, Khino. Khino is incredibly patient and takes the time to give personal guidance even within the group session. I feel very comfortable even though I am not a gym buff of any kind.I have lost 10 pounds so far. I am very happy with my progress so far toward getting ready for my wedding day in a month. I highly recommend this gym!

A HUGE UPDATE! I finally heard from the new owners of Lloyd and they went above and beyond to try and get a hold of me and get me a refund for the months I was charged after cancelling. A really appreciate their attention on this.In conclusion, Lloyd is under new, GOOD management. Thanks guys!

Fraud Alert! I had to cancel my credit card because LAC, probably one of their salespeople trying to keep their numbers up, has blatantly committed fraud. After many and varied attempts to get in contact with the club (I was out of the country) to remind them that I had a confirmed cancellation and to please stop charging, I had to get help from my bank. Capital One investigated and found that LAC consistently changes the name of and the amount of the charges, so that the bank cannot successfully keep track of the charges. For example, last month, instead of "Lloyd Athletic Club" in the amount of $39, they changed the name to "ABC Llyd Athletic Clb" and charged two separate transactions adding up to $39, so that the stop charge was (once again) ineffective. It's just never ending, and so very scummy. So, you'll have to weigh the amenities of LAC against the value of your time and money, whether supporting unethical behavior is OK with you, and, ultimately, decide how much money you want to spend at this club long after you cancel your membership.

The LAC is BACK! For 40 years the Lloyd Athletic Club has been delivering fitness to so many different groups - handballers, racquetballers,, squash players, senior fitness, weight lifters, Wallyballers, cycling, and many others. It is a great laid back, comfortable environment for every day people. The new management that started in January, 2019 are whipping the place into shape. Customer service and cleanliness are way up and they even expanded parking which is no easy trick in the Lloyd district. Give this place a shout.

old facility. old machines. lots of carpet. i am regularly injured by treadmills that are falling apart and have pieces of plastic/metal hanging in weird places. This morning both my arm were cut up and I got blood all over my towel. don't even get me started on the decrepit showers. All I will say is that it's really gross. Staff is really nice tho.

A small laid back fitness center with an emphasis on handball competitions. With its multiple full size handball courts and the prominent presence of competitive leagues, this would be an exciting workout spot for someone with a real interest in the sport. As I spend most of my time on this club's several weight machines, I haven't had the occasion to involve myself in league play directly.
