Love the staff and location; but, the building being held together with bandaids and tape as they are at the mercy of the developers. I pray the new building will have a sauna and steam room.

For me, this Y is a happy place. It is so convenient and it has all I need. I love the pool and I also like to workout in the gym upstairs. Everyone that works there, like Tony, is exceptionally nice. It can get crowded after work and can be tough to find the dumbbells you need. It's never a problem to get a cardio machine and the locker rooms are never too crowded. If the classroom studio is open, there are lots more dumbbells in the lighter range in there. I do wish they would have another dumbbell rack of the commonly used lighter weights (10, 15, 20lbs) in the main area. I gave four stars versus five to be clear that it is nothing fancy because I know some people will be looking for somewhere more sleek and shiny and new. I actually like that it feels more like a community center, which is sort of the idea of the Y, than some trendy gym. I grew up going to Ys and even worked at one for two years. I do hope they fix the pool hot water heater, though! Otherwise, it is way too cold for swimming in the coming winter months 🥶
