I love Wilson. Gigantic climbing wall, spacious rooms for group fitness classes (highly recommend Rhythm HIIT), and a weight room with equipment that works every part of your body. Plenty of helpful staff that will assist you if you have questions or problems.

I really enjoy the facility and offerings at Wilson. The equipment and classes offered are great. They have a variety of group class offerings that work well with my schedule but get there early to get a spot and check which room it is in. One thing to keep in mind though is that it gets busy quick. I go really early in the morning so it's not as bad but if you go during peak hours it will definitely be crowded.

Older male staff people at the front desk don’t like being suggested what to do because “they have their process” for swiping cards so it’s best to just be like okay I’ll just let you do your thing slowly. Gym is big, plenty of wipes, variety of equipment, and water fountain water tastes good. Lockers are helpful but bring your own lock. Duke students can bring guests for $5. There’s a ladder climbing machine, plenty of weights and cardio machines, other smaller equipment like bands and such, and even ping pong table you can check out paddles to use. I like the large mirrors and compostable wipes. I worked out so hard the 2 times I used this gym and it was very well worth it.

Fantastic facility. Pool, gym, basketball courts. I love the Red Mango right on the property. Convenient hours and always friendly staff.

Has got to the one of the best gyms in the world. Treadmills, Cross trainers, cycles, rock climbing, pool, squash, racquetball, weight room, HIIT workouts and many more to keep you engaged and fit at all times. And the best part, it is only 35$ a month.

That wall climbing for an indoor gym is hard to beat! Very modern equipments, lucky Duke students and faculty.
