I have been a member for over 15 years and love this place. They have everything you could ask for in a health club. Besides the best gym facility they have a great restaurant, tavern, pool, daycare, and numberous classes and group activities. I most recently went to the Michael Buble concert through the DAC, the seats were great. I regularily get massages there and love the smoothies at the cafe. They make you feel like family and offer something for everyone in your family.

I have never regretted my membership for a day. I can not say that about other clubs that I have joined in the past. I will never this leave club as a member, and I am dead certain that my family would not allow me to anyway.

For those reviews which state that this club is expensive or snooty, I could only reply that they must not be members. The club may seem expensive if you are looking to just join a gym. If that is the case, then you might want to look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a club where you can workout, bowl, swim, have a personal trainer, get a massage, grab a bit to eat or even grab a beer with friends, then this is the club for you. For those who are looking to network with some of the most important business leaders in Denver, then you might consider joining the DAC!

This has been one of the best investments I have ever made.

I have been a member of the Denver Athletic Club for well over 4 years now and I have never belonged to any fitness club for that long. In the past I have joined 24 hour fitness, Bally's, etc. and I was disappointed with the constant turnover in staff and management.

When I joined the Denver Athletic Club I was looking for a club where I could workout, and get involved in the community. My entire family has gotten involved with the club and it's members and we could never think of turning in our membership. The Denver Athletic Club is more than just a fitness club. What other club in Denver has a Bowling Alley, Pool, Billiards Room, Poker Room, Yoga, Spin Class, Raquetball, Rock Climbing Wall, Personal Trainers and Business Development Group all under the same roof? I can only think of one club with such diversified events and activities.

I would strongly recommend anyone, whether you live in Denver or not to check out this club as it offers way more than just workout facilities.

Pros: awesome social events, great workout facility and staff

Cons: Can't think of a thing wrong

I really enjoy the convenience of the location of the DAC, it can't be beat! To get 90 min of free parking downtown is also great.

If you don't like a crowded gym you'll be happy here!

Pros: LOCATION, gym is never busy, nice equipment, parking

In the 15 years I have worked in Denver I have not found a better place to network with business professionals! The DAC is a great club and they really pride themselves on their history. I love all of the classes they offer as well as the business group meetings that are all included in your membership

We love the DAC and everything it has to offer. The Staff is knowledgable and friendly and the equipment, pool and group classes are fabulous. We totally disagree with aspeneye and TallisBen. We suspect from their reviews they are a bit on the snobby side and a bit "ageist." One of the things we like most about the DAC is its diverse clientele of older, middle, and younger individuals and families. If you are looking for a club to hang out with the "beautiful hard-bodies" this is not for you. If you are an "average joe" that values a comfortable, quality, work-out experience this is it.

I defy you to find a more incompetent staff for an athletic club. If you find one, please let me know.

I am a triathlete and know that this is the place to be! Best pool in Denver, have my own lane most times (25 meters!), Computrainers (state of the art, computer guided bicycle trainer) allow me to train routes I download from my Garmin Edge! Fantastic weight room and cardio equipment that is state of the art, many with TV's/DVD's. Trainers with college degrees, not some weekend certification, best smoothies in town (with real fruit) fantastic locker rooms, and lots of options for fun activities from wine pairings, jazz bands on the roof, and dances throughout the year in fabulous rooms. Best meeting facilities and most of the place is fully renovated. I get 90 minutes of free parking, and best of all, I OWN THE PLACE! yep, the members own the Club, so I get to tell the management team what my preferences are (so OK, they don't do them all, but being able to say I own the place, sounds really cool, because it is true!)
I hesitate to write this, because I don't want the word to get out! I love getting to work out on any piece of equipment without waiting and being around the who's who of Denver without all that pretentiousness!

The Denver Athletic Club is an upscale health club. It is expensive and they are professional. This is not a singles pick up gym but they are about networking and are classy. They expect their clientel to be just as classy as they are. They offer many additional services.

I was largely disappointed.

How I wish there was a club here in Denver for those of us that actually have discerning taste. The equipment is dated, the facilities are dated and the personal attention was not 0, but close to it (not acceptable).

The DAC needs to learn to cater to those of us that are young and successful because there are not many of us here in Denver AND WE TALK. The future is ours, and I imagine the club will at some point in the future need to replenish their aging membership.

It's no wonder many of us are canceling our memberships and moving to smaller boutique gyms in the city... If I wanted to be treated like a working-class Joe, I would have joined 24-hour fitness! Simply laughable...

there's another review stating this gym is snooty, and i agree with that statement somewhat, but come on, most people who go to the gym are a little on the aloof/cocky side, right ? that's a generalization, but for the most part, people who pay money and spend time working out have to be at least a little bit vain. therefore, i can deal with the attitude at this or any other gym. what sets the denver athletic club apart from other gyms in denver is that is ranks much higher in the way of the superiority of the facility. from the minute i walked in the doors to sign up for a membership, i was treated like a queen. i was given a nice cold bottle of water, and was seated at a table with a pretty flower arrangement. the fees are higher, that's true. they're about double what i paid at 24 hour fitness. BUT...i will NEVER go back to 24 hour after joining this gym. the locker rooms are wonderful. they're clean, spacious and have the comforts of home (a couch, television, complimentary coffee, etc). it's never as packed as 24 hour, and the machines are brand new. you'll never wait for a machine either. i really can't say enough good things. it's well worth the extra money in dues. working out takes discipline, and usually isn't a barrel of fun, so why not make that time more pleasant by joining a gym where you're most comfortable ? it makes sense to me !

PROS: beautiful facility
CONS: a pricier fees than at most gyms

While the work out facilities are great the clients are snobs. They charge extra for the good locker rooms, and membership is outrageous. Yeah, they get great reviews from the magazines and newspapers but if you aren't "someone" you're no one.

The social scene, restaurant, and, of course, the awesome programs and fitness equipment make this the premier club in Denver. This isn't your grandparents' club anymore! The DAC's Crimson Club caters to the 25-40 group so you can get the maximum out of your membership. Love it here!

The facility is great, but has been in need of a serious remodel in the locker rooms and f&B outlets. The poor taste in decor runs throughout and the club looks tired. As a member I was disappointed and with the lack of attention I resigned my membership. The club needs serious help.

I visited the DAC as a prospective member and immediately felt unwelcome by the front desk representative, and couldn't even get her to offer me a tour.
Upon use of the facilities i found that the locker rooms hadn't been updated in 50 years and the equipment seemed to be from the 80s. While the members at the club were very nice and helped me out, the staff was awful.
So what it comes down to - if you want the most advanced equipment and most highly qualified trainers look elsewhere.
While after complaining i did receive a very prompt reply and invitation back to the club, however after my first experience i never wanted to return.

Never crowded, great facilities and classes. Billiards and dining are a plus or entertaining clients.
