I like this YMCA. It's very low-key, nice and small, and safety precautions are in place. I can't wait until they open back up the coffee bar and sauna facilities - then it'd be a perfect gym. 😏😏😏

I have never been at this particular YMCA. I was greeted by AJ who showed me the place and talked about their enhanced cleaning procedures. He treated me like an old friend whom he has not seen in a long time. I guess because since Covid-19, the place was almost empty. The gym has all the essential equipment to do a well rounded workout. Small but substantial. The best part was the friendly welcoming. I will try to go back in the future.

A true neighborhood resource. Friendly staff, gym usually uncrowded but parking may be a problem on some evenings. My wife wishes that they opened at 0530 am like they did before the remodel(for the before work exercisers)

This would definitely be a five star review if it weren’t for the parking and for limited equipment. This facility is clean and well organized, the staff is friendly and helpful, and people that workout here are somewhat reasonable. Parking accommodates about four people and there is only one of each piece of weightlifting equipment

This is a really great Y! The staff here is super friendly and keep the facilities clean and the machines are almost always in working order. It does get a bit crowded at times, but it is nothing compared to some of the bigger gyms out there. Would recommend to anyone in the Durham area!

Great gym at a great location!! Very nice and always clean. Great selection of fitness classes. Everyone that works here is very friendly. I have a little one and use childcare and they are so great with my kid. They are always energetic and excited to see my kid and have fun activities for him to keep him busy and entertained. One thing to note is they have somewhat limited parking (though I’ve only once had a problem finding parking, just something to keep in mind) and that there are certain evening hours where it is very busy.

Great facilities. Super friendly staff. Parking can be a hazard at peak times.

The best Y/gym I’ve ever been a member of. Friendly service, great amenities, clean. Rarely crowded. Wish I still lived nearby bc I’ve never been able to find one as nice as this.
