A nationally recognized recreation and athletic center geared toward community improvement..
The first U.S. branch of the YMCA started in Boston in 1851; there are now more than 2,500 locations nationwide, making it the country's largest nonprofit community service program. Each YMCA reflects the community it's in, offering differing services based on the area. Most include fitness areas with aerobic equipment, classes and racquetball and tennis courts. Many also have day care and after-school programs, as well as summer day camps.
The Ubiquitous Steamroom-in-Disrepair. The FIRST THING I look for in a gym is a clean, working steamroom. I would highly recommend the YMCA if it weren't for their small, constantly broken-down version. There is a lot of great equipment to use, an Olympic-sized pool, a basketball court, racquetball courts and free-weights. The employees are seemingly never informed of equipment or facility repairs that are in progress when asked about them. Sometimes, the lockers aren't checked for towels, trash and filthy clothing left from the day before. Some of the male members apparently don't know how to turn off a shower. All of this would be overlooked if the YMCA could manage to keep its steamroom in good working order. I don't think gym managers realize how IMPORTANT a working steamroom is to its members. It's time they found out. With a rate increase on the horizon, I'm now seriously thinking of switching gyms.
