And yet another great YMCA! This two story fitness emporium is amazing. They have everything under the sun! On the bottom floor you'll find a large section of up to date cardio equipment including treadmills, elliptical machines and stair steppers. They have a huge room of free weights mixed with a variety of the latest strength training machines. The gym also has a full sized basketball court, and indoor track, and multiple racquetball rooms. The staff here are so friendly. Some of them are weight training instructors, some of them teach classes. They have a staff of massage therapist on hand to offer members expert muscle relief. This YMCA also has huge, fully serviced locker rooms with an attached sauna and steam room. Their pool is decent sized but last time I went their open swim hours were a little hard to access.
One of my favorite things about this YMCA is that they work hand in hand with other non-profit agencies around Portland that serve at-risk youth, drug addicts, both youth and adult, the homeless and the less fortunate. They provide free and very discount membership rates for many of these organizations, allowing those who otherwise wouldn't have access, the ability to use the gym and learn some health coping skills and hobbies. They really make an effort to serve the community!
