What do you like about our programs and facilities?

First thing walking in the door you notice how clean and open and bright it is. The women at the front desk are always extremely nice and make you feel welcomed. The classes are a lot of fun but I wish there were more yoga classes. Camp this year so far seems spectacular. I love how the kids time is all accounted for and with the handly schedule, you know where your child is all day.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

The facilities provide easy parking and access. I love the group exercise programs. I wish the Y I go offered more choices in group exercise classes. Paula Manship is one of the great Ys and I do not understand why the Southside could not be combined with Paula Manship (PM). I believe PM Centre would grow fast if there were major capital improvement to add 4-5 more rooms for group exercise, a bigger day care room and perhaps an area with tables for all members to meet.
As of group exercise classes, offer specialty classes taught by the most seasoned, and effective instructors (ie Debbie Ellington) for an additional monthly charge. Then, have the classes connected to Mindbody app so can members prebook with a cancellation fee. This way you can have the class full each time!

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

A.C. Lewis YMCA Baton Rouge group exercise classes keep me motivated to stay fit. Class instructors, Terry (Monday 9 a.m. H.I.T.T. + Friday 9 a.m. Step-n-Tone classes) and Marsha (Wednesday 9.a.m. Strength & Tone), are both personable and upbeat, and they vary the exercises to focus on all muscle groups and to class members 'on their toes'. They are both knowledgeable about how to keep from injuring the body by doing exercises correctly and frequently suggest intensity level adjustments for low-impact.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I like the pool, steam room and sauna room. I like the variety of exercise equipment also. However, I don't like that I have to get checked in by the desk attendant. Sometimes, the attendants are working the desk alone and are preoccupied, or on the phone with other clients and I have to wait to get checked in. The check in machine should be placed on the desk so we could access it. I don't know why the check in process was changed.
