A big complante about this YMCA is the pool and how there is always a team practicing. The facts are that the teams practicing there want to be there to work. Ask any of the older swimmers how much they swim per week and give up to do so. Some of these swimmers are trying to swim in college or make state or even national qualifying times. The swimmers that are always there are working hard. If you talk to the swimmers and ask them there goals you will see how hard the work. And the coaches are not mean they are just trying to focus on the practice and getting the swimmers to there goals. The team leaves a lane in the cold pool for people to swim and also most of the warm pool for other members to use. Sometimes the team has 8+ people in one lane. So sharing a lane with one or two other people is not that bad. The YMCA also has a incredible program for adults that want to swim more. This is called Masters swimming. If you join this you will get most of the pool and you will swim with other adults that want to work hard. You will have a great coach to give you tips and make sets for you to do. If you need more information about this you can ask someone at the front desk or a lifeguard. The employees will not bite they are extremely nice. You could also ask one of the swim coaches after practice because they have no problem helping you. Next time you come here and are upset about the swim team ask them about what they do and you might be inspired.

My son attends the Lowes YMCA preschool at Fairview. The director and teachers are all great. You can tell they love the kids. I feel very comfortable leaving my little one with them. He's always excited to go to school and see his friends and teachers.

great facility though the pool could be bigger. daycare program. someone will come and spot you if you seem to be having a tough time with something. WiFi for members. very clean. if you worry about your kids safety at the YMCA of all places, do yourself a favor and keep them home so you can wipe their butt and brush their hair and baby them til they are all growed up into turds.

I bet people who rated the facility 5 stars are employees, because the facility is nice, but the staff are horrid

first of all this ymca is good. It has a good facility, good instructors, and good service. What makes it great is the pool area. Don't listen to all the haters on this because they have no idea what they're saying. The ymca's swim teams are like classes. They are previously scheduled, and people can sight up for them. You don't get angry at a Zumba class for using the Zumba room. Why are you getting angry at a swim team that actually swims. Maybe the coaches are angry because there is a person in they're lane refusing to get out. If you want to "swim with your kids after school" you probably want to do that in the warm pool with the slides and fun splash pad, not in the cold pool that is meant for LAPS. Maye it would be a good idea to get out of the way of the coaches working hard for their swimmers, as they swim around 4MILES each practice. My advice is to look at the schedule posted on the website, or in the pool area, oh wait, here's a crazy thought. ASK A LIFEGUARD! They are all very nice people that are happy to help answer any questions regarding swim times, and options. If you still are finding it hard to swim and have fun sign up for a class, or team. That or ask the people in the open lane for room. In my experience people are generally very nice and are happy to split the lane. The pool area of the ymca is well managed and in good shape. Just accept that there are classes and multiple teams, and you'll have a fun time with yourself, or your family. The swim team members are ymca members too. They were just members that were smart enough to sighn up to do what they wanted. Also, there is always a cold pool lane that is open. The swim team swims sometimes 8 people per lane. I think that swimming 2 to a lane is just fine

This YMCA has a booked schedule for afternoon swimming. I have back problems and have became a member to swim and use the pool. Once 3:30pm hits swim teams flood the pool area. There is one lane in the cool pool and one lane in the warm pool available for members. The swim team instructors are rude and the lanes that are open are usually occupied with rude men who do not want to share a lane and swim for a long time. I have two sons. I like to go to the Y after school gets out at 3:30pm so that sons can play in the gym and I can swim. This YMCA's swim schedule is disabling my ability to swim and to be at the Y with my kids. I have been bothered by this for some time now. I would like to see this Y have a little more regard for their members instead of putting the swim team first. I don't really understand this especially since the members are the ones who are paying more to be there. Today I left without swimming because of the swim coaches negativity and the lanes being full. I waited for at least 30 minutes to see if anyone was getting out of the two lanes. For now I have picked up a schedule and realize that I will have to go to the YMCA alone during the day while my kids are in school just so I don't have to fight for a swim lane out of the two that are available in the afternoon. I am truly bothered by the rudeness and unprofessional swim team staff and the other male members who are not courteous to others. I thought the YMCA was founded on Christian principals but this location is starting to make me wonder. I also don't think that going to get a work out should not be stressful. So to anyone considering a membership to use the pool you need to check the schedule before you do that. The only way I see someone being able to work around the pool schedule is if you own your own business and set your own hours, are a 3rd shift worker, or are a stay at home parent. The pool schedule should not make things this way for the members.

The swim schedule is ridiculous. I pay good money to use the YMCA, yet every time I go there the pool is completely taken over by the swim team. Why am i paying?

“Although the facility is well equipped with machines and probably good instructors, it could stand an improvement in administrative people. And that is what makes a company successful... people with the vision to serve their local demographics with respect and empathy. As a senior, I have had problems with inflexibility, but still kept paying my $49.95 for many years. This year I was lucky enough to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years with my family in CA, and before I left, I called to cancel my membership. They would not take a cancellation on the phone. I told them I'll call my bank to stop the $49.95 auto payment and sign whatever you need when I get back. I just got back from CA and found out they processed TWO payments of $50.95 when the bank refused $49.95. Previously they had also reneged on my prepaid personal trainer payments of several hundred $$ cause I missed deadlines (because of health issues) of which I was never informed. That is why I want to cancel my membership - I paid them for many years. They probably do a great job for younger people who don't need any help or guidance, but I know this community is full of retired people who could be coaxed out of their homes and would be a lot happier and healthier for that.
