Large & great schedule open til 11pm. Unfortunately the pool closes @9 or 9:30 & usually it’s the 20yd pool only, so I have to arrive even earlier if I want to swim in the 25 yd pool or to get laps in even for the 20 yd pool. I look forward to trying out the 25yd salt water pool. M...

Good gym. Can get real packed about 3 times a day but it is not too bad. Nice equipment and the staff is nice and attentive if you need them. The only bad thing is they don’t allow your cell phones and I use to use my to record my swim technique. Other than that the place is great.
