YMCA Columbia North Review

BanSilini's picture

We joined the YMCA last week and are really enjoying it. It is only $44 a month for a full family membership. I enjoy swimming regularly and there full length pool is really nice and clean! I belonged to Bally's for a while, use to go to the one in the NE, it was always dirty and people were just regularly rude.

My only complaint is that the fitness room with the equipment is a bit cramped with little to no space to stretch out in, but other than that, all of there equipment is really new and nice. Everything is a lot cleaner than most gyms in the city.

Not one person has been rude or snotty. Actually the kids who go there for sports are very well behaved and usually holding doors for people.

We started our son in swim lessons this week, and it's been a lot of fun.

I had a hard time finding a gym where I could work out, do some cardio in the area that wasn't piggy bank breaking, that was clean and friendly. So I was really happy to discover the Y being so great, cheap. They also have a child watch program in the day-care center, so if you want to work out and drop the kids off for the hour it's only 2 bucks per kid.

My wife and I belong to Columbia North and love it.
(I haven't gone in the last week due to an ear infection because I go mostly to swim.)
Great people, great facility.

Only thing I wish was different is that the pool is rented out to a swim team two days per week from 3-5 pm, and late afternoon is my preferred exercise time.
