Success! Thanks for posting your review of Ymca. You’ve done the world some good today.

Karate employee is ""selective"" with the kids.

""If it ain't white it ain't right"" Karate instructor (the short one) seems to be inclined to treat kids from different racial ethnicities ""differently""

Lap Pool Warm Enough For Bacteria

I've been a lap swimmer for 23 years. I'm not competitive, but I like to get my exercise doing laps. Sports literature recommends a range of 78 to 80 degrees for lap swimming. However, this YMCA starts their pool off at 82 degrees. But if you come in later in the day after a lot of people have been in the pool, you're likely to find an 83 degree temp or higher. And it's a known fact that bacteria grow fast... view more

Great place to work out!

I joined a few weeks ago and I LOVE this gym. SO MUCH BETTER than the meat-show at 24 Hour Fitness, etc. There are always machines open and low key people of all walks of life are there! I just wish there were more wipey dispencers to wipe the machines off!!! Also, the locker rooms could be updated a tad :)

They don't seem able to safeguard bank information.

Received a letter from them telling me one of their computers that had member's personal info was stolen.\r Subsequently unauthorized withdrawals began showing up on my bank statement. Had to change banks, spending a considerable amount of time on the phone trying to clean up the mess. Wrote them a letter about this - have yet to receive any kind of response. Canceled my membership. Had been a member at other Y'... view more

Terrible place. They claimed that one of their workers stole a computer with sensitive information in it; I cancelled the debit card I had registered with them, and called and left several messages to request that they cancel my membership. No one ever called me back...EVER!!! Then I received a letter from them stating that my card was declined and they are charging me $15 for the rejection. This is the most in... view more

Smells Funny

Tried this one out tonite, since I was in the area. Surprisingly empty by 9:00PM, even tho it's open 'till 11PM. Have to agree that it smells funny - the mens' showers positively stank. The tile floors were grubby, and there's no spray out in the common areas to wipe down the grubby (though otherwise modern) equipment. They actually have a great inventory of pretty modern equipment, so it's kind of sad to see the... view more

wouldn't go back...

Not to scare anyone but the people who work at this place can't be trusted. I am no longer a member but I was in the past. After using a credit card I hadn't used in over a year to pay for my membership at the YMCA, suddenly my card started getting all sorts of charges on it. According to my credit card company someone got my card number and had a card made with their own information on it. I NEVER use that card and ... view more

Yes, I went to this gym, I've alway's liked the Y. There was one young lady who was very nice who toured me thru but the rest of staff need attitude ajustments. I was hopeing to join but because of my low income at this time for me and I asked if there was anyway that it could be adjusted, like their motto ,no income to low. I felt like a bum asking for a hand out. I'm writer and out of work because of the strike. I ... view more

Hollywood staff is rude & confrontational....

We love the idea of the YMCA although the application is something to be desired. The staff is rude and extremely difficult. Our family has always supported the YMCA through annual donations and volunteer support of which we will no longer contribute. \r \r The level of knowledge the staff possess and demeanor in which they approach conflict is troublesome! The facilities are dirty and there is a smell that ra... view more

User review by liberte903

I was hesitant at first about joining the Y due to the fact that the trainer who led me on the tour was a bit rude and condescending, but after I got a feel for the place and talked to the office staff, I felt really at home. Since joining, I've been using my membership to the fullest. I love the yoga classes--there is a beginner's class, and also a few different method classes. The yoga instructors are very good,... view more
