Our decisions are made by preference not by word of mouth so you need to come in and see for yourself before judging. I am 30, in good shape and prefer to work out in a facility that challenges but does not pride itself on superficicial-unrealistic expectations which do not qualify for the majority public. In my opinion, if you have the desire to be healthy and to find a good variety of classes, equipment with the luxury of pool, sauna and steam room you really should give it a try. Crossfit is provided free on Saturday not to mention the wide range of classes this gym is positively one of the better gyms in the area.
The staff is nice, most of the machines are not outdated (maybe they were when the other people wrote these reviews?) and they offer a fairly wide variety of classes. I also like the gender-separated workout rooms and pool days! My criticisms are that definitely the pool needs to be cleaned more frequently, it has gotten too crowded for its size, and it caters to an older crowd so it's not the best place for those who aren't into relaxed, slower-paced workout facilities.
I travel a a lot - but Eugene is home. This place is great...the trainers are truly qualified (college degrees) - and there is no extra charge for personal training - I get unlimited personal training, spa atmosphere, patented monitoring system and 24hr access. Great value...so long to the DAC and its outrageous extra fees.
