Area: Downtown

Extremely convenient for Sheraton guests, this renovated and re-opened community center is leaps and bounds better than it was just a few years ago. The historic building and facility used to be just that...historic. But now the modern cardio, strength and swim venue is top notch thanks to a mega-million dollar facelift.

The cardio area is the Y's highlight with new Life Fitness treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals positioned next to one another in an organized fashion. We didn't spot any free weights other than dumbbells up to 75 pounds, on the main level. A mix of old and new stack-loaded weight stations are on premise. And, the main weight area is downstairs with Smith Machines, heavier weights, and dumbbells that weigh up to 110 lbs.

The pool has seen better days. While it does have 18 meter swimming with 3 roped lanes and 4 bottom stripes, the basement facility feels cramped and closed-in. For swimmers in a pinch, it will suffice. However, we believe there are several better options throughout the city. Bring your ID!
