After going to this gym for a little more than 5 years now, I've finally canceled my membership here. It's a shame because this gym has a lot of potential, but it is very poorly (not too mention cheaply) run. The same equipment that was broken, unbolted, or plain out dangerous to use 5 years ago is still in the same condition to this day. I've been told by several members and trainers that the owner will simply not put a dime into fixing these apparatuses. These broken machines/weights put people at risk! I was also told from an electrician that works out there that the gyms wiring system is on the verge of collapsing. I'm not an electrician so I don't understand the lingo he told me, but the take home point from him was unless the owner fixed the wiring problems, the gym was at a major fire risk. This is downright irresponsible of the managers/owners of this gym and the fire dept. needs to check this immediately. Everything in this gym is poorly maintained and left filthy. I can no longer stand it so I will be locating to a better gym out there (haven't made my mind up yet). Oh ya, and be sure to only get a month to month membership here because powerhouse R.W.C. is famous for ripping people off and still charging people that cancel for many months after. Check out yelp, there are many people who have been screwed over here. On a positive note the crowd is nice (except for after 7pm it becomes really ghetto macho mannyish), the parking is good, and there are a good selection of free weights. Just be warned that there are may hazards here and don't expect anything to be fixed.

I have never to gym before this I feel this gym is the best gym out there. It has great selection of dumbbells (from 5 pounds it goes up to 150 pounds with everything in between), lot of machines whose name also I don’t know. All age group of peoples come here to maintain their health (from 18 to 50). This gym provides a happy medium of workout to the hardcore weightlifters. Overall this is the best gym to workout for making yourself healthy. I will suggest my friend to join this gym.

Cheryl M accepts the fact that not all of us are gym-aholics. Between my husband and me, we have stuck with her because she is consistent and will not let us get away with excuses.\r She is so in to nutrition, so we are blessed to have her in our lives.\r Thank You RC Powerhouse and Rob\r You have made a difference in our lives.\r Libby & Bob Mann

I have grown up in this area my entire life ""san mateo county"" and I must say I feel this gym is the best gym out there because this gym caters to every kind of person. It has great selction of dumbells (goes up to 150 pounders with everything in between), two squat racks, various hammer strength machines, lots of ez bars, and practically every cardio and weight lifting machine one can need. Does it have as many fancy machines as equinox?no. Is it quite as hardcore as diesel in burlinggame?no. However, this gym provides a happy medium to everything to the hardcore weightlifter that wants to pump iron to his blasting ipod to the never been to a commercial gym before person that doesn't want to be judged by other gym members. This is not a pickup joint where women are harrassed by annoying justin timberlake wannabees nor is it a gym where annoying sales people push you to have personal trainers or sign ""special"" contracts. The gym membership is reasonable ""32$ a month"" and this gym has no initiation fee. It also has a great location with plenty of parking. I must say the musics pretty bad, but hey, nothing an ipod or a walkman can't change around. I reccomend this gym to anybody that wants to get a good workout, whether you'r a novice, intermediate, or advanced weightlifter or a person that just wants to do cardio.

this is a real nice place. it has a very nice atmosphere newly remodeled with lots of new equipment . it is the opposite of many places, there are no commisioned sales people, it is clean, they have people walking around cleaning at all hours of the day, it is not overcrowded and no muscleheads. the aerobics has lots of great instructors , my favorites are yoga and kickboxing. when stuff gets broken it is fixed almost immediatly , it is easily the nicest club on the peninsula ! the management is very professional and the employees and other members are very nice . the bathrooms are newly upgraded and always clean . I would recommend this club just as it was recommended to me, it is so nice and a very safe welcome atmosphere!
