Core policies and rules for Murphy Health & Fitness


mainly a very friendly staff who seem to strive to make everything as best they can for their clients. Also you keep a clean pool !! as well as facilities.

The staff is friendly and the facilities are clean and neat.

Equipment, friendly staff, pool.

I like the classes aimed at seniors. I particularly like Bonnie's Balance and Fitness class, and hope to get back into the pool for her water arthritis class soon.

Mostly everything.

The classes are good and fun, and your facility has a year round pool.

Very friendly when I walk in. You answer any questions I have about the equipment. Sign up was easy. One of the dispensers was out of paper towels and that was taken care of promptly.

Knowledgeable front desk staff, helpful backgrounds to make rehabilitation a continued process by using up-to-date exercise equipment; many improvements over and above the past seven years prior to new management. Yes, it's worth the price; and, Silver Sneakers is still honored for those as a FREE service to the community. Easy Access in the community's 'inner highway' is along side the facility and facing the park and river-walk. Pool temperature is delightful as the days have been conducive for perfect weather thus far, into October. Soon, the bubble cover will be applied to accommodate swimmers year around, once again. New tennis court, too! The only draw back is to realize parking an issue, thus far. And, perhaps by next summer, a corner portion of the pool area may be tarp covered to provide shade from glare, for those who must exercise in water.

Very courteous

Gym isn't too large to feel comfortable in, the staff is friendly and helpful. Some of the classes are very large, however, so it's difficult to see what the instructor is doing.
