An okay facility but not very well maintained. Needs some serious upgrades. Staff is friendly but typically not very knowledgeable.

There have been some bumps along the road, but this Y has come a long way since the past couple of years. Different parts of the buildings are being renovated and new additions are being made. New equipment, new X-zone, which has great excersize equipment for adults and kids in form of interactive video games, the open gym time is very popular, raquetball courts, friendly staff! The prices are great and from time to time they hold promotions so if you sign up during that time you actually save money! It's a great place to interact with others and actually make new friends. You should check it out!

Pros: friendly staff, constant improvements and renovations, new equipment.

Cons: bathrooms, the entire building could use a make-over but it's still good!

Overall, this is a pretty schotty facility. First off, the staff here is ridiculous. They treat you like a child. The counter women seem to have some vendetta against men. They make you show your card every time, as if you are entering the pentagon as opposed to a second rate, converted bomb shelter. It's almost as if the main women at the counter thinks she is your mother (she is not my mother, by the way). Once you get into a place, its like being in a labyrinth. Its about a 3/4 mile walk to the locker room. When you arrive in the locker room get ready to be surrounded by characters. From a 98 year old fella who sings the bum bum song, to the traditional 'guy without clothes on' on the scale, this locker room has it all.

The cardio room has new equipment, and is pretty nice. Beautiful color TV sets grace all of the treadmills, however don't plan on skippin any rope..My friend Jude (who participates in a boxing training regiment) says "there is a 5-15 minutes of wait time, [and] the ropes are [expletive deleted]." The basketball games here are also joke. A bunch of 40 something men, participate in the lunch run. Think people don't play 'shirts and skins' anymore? Think again. It is required here. This run can only be described as a 'homoerotic blend of hacks and has-beens."

One plus is they have towels available for purchase. They also stock hair gel, shampoo, shave cream, and lotion in the men's locker room. Lacks a sufficient amount of toilets.
