I chose Recursive because I saw Todd’s facebook posts and was interested. I signed up for a trial class at another gym almost two years before and talked myself out of it. I have run for years and wanted to try something different. Todd’s posts were enticing. My...

I decided to join Recursive because of all the positive reviews I came across while researching for gyms. I love the layout of the gym and also had a user friendly web page. After attending my first workout, I could tell that this gym was for me. I really enjoy all...
