    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Spotlessly clean. Almost empty each time I went.
    Cons: More expensive than other fitness centers in our area. No pool or spa.

    Summary: When Len changed H.M.O.',s it included a SilverSneakers pass for several of our local fitness centers/gyms. The closest one to our home was the Y.M.C.A. About 4 weeks ago we both went in and he filled out several pages of forms. The final one ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, many things to do, family-friendly, pools, friendly people, daycare
    Cons: Sometimes they lack staff or buildings/machines get old

    Apr 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice views from their many windows
    Cons: NOT a gym -- a charitable foundation that uses "members" for their "shakedown database."

    Summary: I have been a member for 19 years. The first 9 were amazing -- best gym in LA Metro area. The management changed 10 years ago and it's gone to pot. I'm an aerobics fanatic and there are almost no classes now, the teachers are unqualified (anyone ... read more

    Pros: Price is getting better, opportunities abound
    Cons: Price still a little much for a community facility
