I know this gets asked about a lot but I’m looking for the perfect gym…


I live in the Shockoe Bottom area and need help. I have looked at the Golds and AmFamily Fitness just because they include so much and are well advertised. I need a gym that has everything like a pool. I just cannot find a gym like that around my area.

The best one so far is Gold’s in the Fan but it doesn’t look like it has a pool. Their other two have pools but they are pretty far from my location.

AmFam – I do like that they are opened 24hrs a day but again are too far. I think the easiest one to get to on Brook Rd does not have a pool. BTW – they have a horrible website that gives no info!!

Am I missing anything? Is it worth the drive to some of these joints? If you make a suggestion please also include the price and the popularity of the pool, I hate waiting for a lane!! Probably the best option I have found is the gym at MCV, I know it’s under construction, what do you think?

Thanks!

I have never been but I have heard good things about the Jewish Community Center - they have a pool and fitness center. The website had good info on membership prices etc.

Looks like a neat place, great idea but that place is pretty far and well off the freeway.

Sorry, I am in Chestefield but lots of friends use it for a variety of things and most are not Jewish.

I think the YMCA on Franklin Street downtown has a pool. It's definitely closer and should have most everything you need.
