Nice place to work out for older folks. No gym rats or bunnies; just people who want to get their workout done. Staff is really nice and knowledgeable. Really good water aerobics classes, great for low impact workout. I think they are a little pricey compared to other places I have used, but they do have a lot of good options there.

This is a great gym. It's not a muscle gym and never overcrowded. The equipment is meticulously maintained and there is an indoor pool and indoor and outdoor track. The staff is professional. I've tried several other gyms but this is by far my favorite.

Love this place. Indoor and outdoor tracks, indoor pool, lots of weight machines and kinetic machines (bikes, rowing machines, ellipticals, NuSteps, Stairmaster, you name it), free weights... Great instructors, world-class physical therapy, floor and water exercise classes, and the list goes on. Mix of old and young adults, but all are there to get and stay healthy: no showboats! Highly recommended!

The facility was completely renovated about two years ago, including a lot of new equipment. The pool is now a salt water pool, which members seem to like. Excellent and well-qualified staff. Almost all trainers hold an appropriate masters degree. The gym opens at 6 AM on weekdays. I usually arrive fifteen minutes early, as do most of the others who come at that hour. I suppose it is different later in the day as members come and go individually, but gathering as we do each morning, there is time to talk with one another, resulting in numerous personal friendships as well as a palpable cameraderie that makes going a pleasant social event as well as a good workout. There is a very diverse crowd in the morning. A couple of retired Duke professors, a few professionals, nurses and small business owners and others. As a group we all seem to share a similar sense of humor and there is usually a fair amount of laughter as we wait for the doors to open. The group goes out of its way to welcome new-comers.

Nice ameneties, friendly people, decent equipment selection. You can get a key for a locker and as many towels as you would like. Plenty of parking too. I'd say this place or the YMCA are your best gyms in the area if you're just looking for a place to work out and get cleaned up.
