What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I am pleased; however, I would like to see the group exercise room updated with better ventilitation and speakers. The chairs we use for yoga are germy and dirty. The room is overused and needs refreshing

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I really like the staff. Also, I like the spacious facility. I don't do any of the programs now, because I have some issues with my feet that prevent me from doing them. But when Brenda taught the stretching and balance class for seniors I was able to do that one and I loved it! That class is no longer available. I also, tried the Line Dance Program and I loved that one too, but it's no longer available. I had to stop that one , though, because of my feet issue. It was a good program though. I usually ride the stationary bike for 30 minutes and do about 3 machines in the back. I have told lots of people about the YMCA, and most of them say, but do they have an indoor pool? Of coarse, the answer is NO, so they usually say that they want to go in the pool year round. I went to Curves for 7 plus years, in Zachary, and when they closed I started at the YMCA . They opened in August and I started in February, 6mos. later. Been there ever since, I try to go 5 days a week, Monday thru Friday. There is one thing that would be very beneficial if it's possible... a coat rack where we can hang our coats/ jackets when we come in to exercise. Please, and thank you!

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

The programs have helped me to improve my fitness. I especially like the new Tread class. I miss the hip hop class. It was fun and a fast-paced class.

It would be great if there could be more than one recumbent bike. More treadmills also.

I like the setup of the gym and the friendliness of the staff.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I have two herniated discs in the lower back. As a result, no more jogging or lifting weights. So I have turned to the swimming pool. I have been swimming at the outdoor pool for almost 20 years. I am 75 and it has allowed me an exercise into retirement.Also, there are others like me that meet in the morning and have a good time talking and laughing. The staff in the morning are great. Ginette and Harry Smith as well as Donna are extra good to all the early birds with a great smile and coffee and puzzles to work. On the second Friday of each month is a Seniors Lunch we all look forward to attending. We also have an educational video put on by one of the Board members on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I like the variety of options for exercising and the courtesy of the staff. I like the fact that the facility is open almost all days and an adequate number of hours. I like the fact that the staff is friendly and strives to keep the facility clean.

However, I do think that management would be more effective if "Management by Walking Around" was practiced, because patrons would not have to tell management what is going on!
In my 20 year career in a management position, I learned that that practice took care of a multitude of problems!

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I love your programs! I love the morning front desk staff, Mrs Jeannette is very nice, always there with a smile! The maintenance people always willing to help and working!

But about the facilities, I really would like more attention in the ladies lockers/bathroom. I believe it needs a good improvement on paint walls and showers. I mean some upgrades and remodeling in this area would be really appreciate for all us that use it every day.

PLEASE we need a TRASH CAN beside each toilet.
The small boxes placed on the walls are not working well to discard feminine items.

A trash can is really necessary beside the toilet to put away also the toilet paper that we use. Is incredible how much paper some ladies use causing a plug sometimes.

One year ago each ladies bathroom had a trash can...I do not why those have been removed.

In other hand, I would like give thanks for the new chairs placed during summer on the deck of the pool area. PLEASE do not forget the umbrellas...we would love have more of them during next summer!!

And for last, how possible would be in the future have a cafeteria on this location? I am sure that every body would enjoy the benefits of it! Just think about it....

Thank you!
