Fantastic YMCA – I have been to many YMCA's and Health Clubs and this one is the best! I love the aquatic staff for my children. The lessons are safe, progressive and fun. I use the babysitting room for my kids while I take the new TRX class. It is great to have a male instructor and other men in the class. My wife likes the Zumba. Outstanding staff and just a nice friendly feel when you work out.
Good group fitness classes, yucky locker rooms – A plus to the Y: you can use your membership to have access to a YMCA anywhere in the country. I've used it everywhere from the Oak Square branch in Brighton (rock-climbing wall) to the fancy one on New York City's east side.
A downside: the locker rooms (women's and girl's) are not so classy. For the girls, especially, no privacy at all for changing and there are frequently young boys in there. The boys should be using the family changing room. No private or semi-private swimming lessons available.
A nationally recognized recreation and athletic center geared toward community improvement. – In Short
The first U.S. branch of the YMCA started in Boston in 1851; there are now more than 2,500 locations nationwide, making it the country's largest nonprofit community service program. Each YMCA reflects the community it's in, offering differing services based on the area. Most include fitness areas with aerobic equipment, classes and racquetball and tennis courts. Many also have day care and after-school programs, as well as summer day camps.
