Well appointed weights and machines. Hubby is a gym fanatic and didn’t like planet fitness… but will do the YMCA with me so I am a happy senior!

The instructors for every class are the best around. They always create a welcoming environment for those with and without experience. Will continue telling everyone about my experience, especially now that the major renovations have been completed.

I broke my leg in a car accident and yesterday was my last day of physical therapy. I was referred to this location as I was moving down here to be closer to work and to continue to work on strengthening my leg. I came up here yesterday with a free 30 day pass to try the center out and see if I liked it and if I did I was considering getting a monthly membership as it’s close to my house. The lady was polite but never gave me a key tag or a tour of the facility. I came back today and turns out she never logged me into their system. The guy at the front desk put me in but was not very friendly. He gave me a key tag but again I never got a tour or any information on the facility. I asked him to show me to the gym which he did and as I was working out, I watched him give another couple a tour around the facility. I am very turned off by the way I was treated my FIRST day here. Not sure I will be returning here.

Medium sized gym. One machine for all muscle groups. Not a bad place to drop in for people out of town with The Y membership.

Always a Joy at the Royal Oak YMCA. The staff is personable like family ...professional...knowledgeable. Their genuine concern for all the members is especially touching to me.The guess are friendly. I look forward to attending and working out 3 to 5 days a week.Not only does the staff motivate you also the members motivate each other. One if my best decisions I made when I joined over five years ago. My family away from family.

Pool was great. Lifeguard is the best (didn't catch her name)! Enjoyed the aquarobics class. Learned some new pool exercises. I'll be back next time I'm in the area.

Some of the nicest people you will ever meet working at any Y. Nay, Michelle, Jean and Colleen always make me feel special and welcome. They go above and beyond to help me with any and all of my needs. Now if they could only help me swim and bike faster.

I am a new member of the Y and have had a great experience! Tyler helped me set up my account / key card and gave me a tour. Peter gave me a little shaker bottle as a thank you for joining. It is never too busy, crowded, or loud. Everyone is kind and I see everyone wiping down their machines! Really great place -- I go a few times a week!

Love it. Been a member almost a year now. Planet Fitness was too ghetto for me so I was debating Ymca or Lifetime. I use to go to YMCA Livonia as a kid so gave Royal Oak a try.Everyone front desk is nice .Joe,Makeda,Ryan and all them are nice. Mandy as well hope got her name right.Michelle runs the pool and is nice. Andrew the guard is kind I don't really go in the pool. Been too lazy to go.Joe's Wednesday class is fun and I met a lot of wonderful people there. I look forward to his class.Make sure you meet Nancy she goes to all the classes and is spunky.Peter is kind asks how your day is when he sees you. Does not seem force he seems genuine.

First time visiting from Lansing. Tyler and Joe awesome. No hassle sign in, their both very good conversationalist. Members also friendly but serious about there workouts. Take the time and visit and don't mind the construction you won't be disappointed.

I only use the work out area. Always similar faces and the machines are great. Also love the child care/day care for the kids when I am working out!

I would have given this facility a 5 star rating 2 months ago however a change in the pool schedule sent the rating down. I joined the Y strictly for the pool. The reservation system was fantastic. The pool schedule has since changed and I showed up during lap swim times and was told that I could not use the pool because the lap swim lanes were full. This is a 5 lane pool. 2 lanes were for family swim. 1 lane was for swim lessons which left two lanes for lap swimmers. I was then told that the pool is geared toward family swim and senior swimmers. Unfortunately this made me feel like my level of swimming didn’t matter. I pay my membership fee just like everyone else. I will say that after speaking to Peter, he got me into a lane so my drive up there wasn’t wasted. I give Peter 5+ stars. IF ANYONE READS THIS….please bring back the lap swim reservations. I think us “lap swimmers” would really appreciate it. Especially in the evening hours.
