I've been a member of the Y since I was a child. I love the YMCA, but this location and the Peachtree Corneres location are nothing more than cheap daycare subsidized by the rest of the members. Kids play on the cardo equipment, roll around on the track, and make sexual gestures at the elderly members. It's a lawsuit waiting to happen. The staff response is little more than "They pay their dues just like you.". The staff even cut my lock off my locker while I was working out because someone had claimed they had left something in there before me that night. The YMCA was once a great place, but now it is a miserable place to go. I am sad they don't want to address these issues. I want to continue to go there, but it is a waste of time and money on my part. I'll go to a gym that appreciates its members.

This is a great venue for families and exercise enthusiasts. It has a nice community atmosphere and a relaxed yet competitive athletic following. You feel comfortable here as an avid triathlete or a newbie to exercise. There is something for everyone and all abilities. The after school care is wonderful. The senior center offers loads of classes, day trips, and health screenings in addition to the physical workout options. M.J. is the best - very personable and helpful. We only wish it opened earlier on Sundays.

The prices for the Y have skyrocketed. Not to mention its always packed and this particular location always seems dirty and rot with germs. Needs some work- it's only worth it if you have your whole family go there.
