If you’re looking for a great gym in Seattle, the Olympic Athletic Club is it! The club sits in the historic district of Ballard in a charming brick building that brings a complete new feel to the gym. It’s cozy and comfortable, and set up much like a spa. The place is beautiful, and very clean. The locker rooms have everything you need: lockers, private dressing rooms, hairdryers, a sauna, a hot tub, and showers. The club also offers several well stocked and well maintained weight rooms, tons of cardio machines, fitness classes, sport courts, and a large, saline-based pool sans harsh chemicals. The employees are also extremely friendly. You can definitely tell that it’s a family business, both in the staff and the patrons that work-out there. They even have childcare and various classes geared towards children. The price for membership has even lowered over the years, and it’s completely worth it for what you get! I will be a member of Olympic Athletic Club for a very long time!
