What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I recently started back attending Southside YMCA, so I have not participated in any programs as such, but I am sure they are all great!

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

It doesn't have the amenities of the other YMCAs but, considering it is downtown where space is limited, that's OK. IT's convenient to my work and I go for weight training exclusively and, for that, it is well equipped. If someone is looking for aerobics or weights, it's a great place to go; the environment is excellent. I go often and enjoy my visits there.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I’ve been going to the Y for about 21 years. Early morning classes are by far the best.Debbie Ellington was the first instructor to get me started,and I haven’t stopped. Some people like to do their own thing, I love classes.I always tell people that the Y is great.I also love South Side Y too. As we get older we need to help out bodies. Thank you YMCA👍

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I like that the outdoor pool is open year round, temperature permitting. It's not a huge facility but the equipment's not bad for its size. Obviously, it's also a lot more affordable than most gyms.

The Americana YMCA is spacious,clean, and encompasses both family and community. Even though the programs and classes are many and varied, I participate mostly in Word for Today, Pickleball, strength training, and socializing with a fresh pot of coffee.

I especially like the 9:00 a m water wellness aerobic class. We do need more and better equipment such as the large noodles.

The YMCA is very close and convenient to my office. The director, Kevin Broussard, does a great job in keeping this Y in tip top shape. The classes offered at lunch time are also very convenient.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I use resistance and aerobic machines three times a week. The equipment is great quality, smooth and easy to use and generally well maintained. I like that the machines are in one large space with fairly adequate room to move around. Staff is friendly and helpful, especially manager Justin.

A change I would like: more reclining cycles. There are only two and both frequently in use. I would trade out a couple of other machines that are less frequently used. Meanwhile I would put a 30-minute limit on the reclining cycles, it is not uncommon to see people on them for on hour.

Another change I would like: get rid of all tables at the entry area. Circulation is unfortunately very cramped in the busy path between desk and exercise area, made worse by the obstacle of a structural steel column. The tables just make it more congested. Maybe put up a bulletin board instead of using tables for displays.

I like that you offer a variety of group fitness classes and that you’re on the west side. Are usually go to classes, but I also visit the gym occasionally, and I don’t usually have to wait for machines or weights.
