Anyone swim?

What are the pools you go to for lane swimming? I used to go to YMCA downtown but parking is a bitch and only 2-3 lane swim the rest is old people and kids walking around.

Doesn't have to have a gym as I would like to keep my Anytime membership anyways.

I used to swim quite a bit, the aquatic center is old but a decent place to lap. If you're interested in a 'masters' swim the aquatic center, UBC, and Lord Byng have weekly masters swims with fairly difficult programming (Byng being the easiest).

They're suppose to be pretty big in the US.

i'd imagine you don't actually go there to workout, but to be seen going to workout.

Welcome to the hood. I go to Britannia CC which is a short drive away. One of the best gyms in Van for a CC Imo when you weigh out size, equipment, and how busy it is or in this case isn't. They also have a pool and ice rink. Yea, it isn't the newest or nicest looking but it gets the job done.

You're probably going to have to drive 10-20 minutes for a decent gym and try out the free trial to see which one you like best:

- Steve Nash Lougheed Highway
- GoodLife Fitness Kingsway
- Anytime Fitness Kingsway

Avoid Anytime Fitness North Burnaby. Shittiest gym I've ever been to.

If we talking strictly gym I tried Nash on Lougheed recently for a couple weeks and also used to go to Fitness world back in the day and there's no argument the size and equipment blow any CC away, not even close. What I couldn't get past was the vibe. Maybe bc I grew up on CC fitness centres and love the more close nit vibe and also you get people from all walks of life. Old Asian grandmas and grandpas, serious gym fanatics, some youngins, everything. Nash on Lougheed anyways (can't comment on other places) in my 2 weeks there were mostly 20 and 30 year old Asians and while that's my demographic and the same type of people I hang around I just didn't enjoy it. They aren't bad people, nobody tried to stare me down or anything but if you've done the big vs small gyms you know what I'm talking about.

Ultimately, it's preference and while CCs are not cheap at around $50/m you get access to swimming and skating too. Racer let me know if you want to come check out Brit we'll go bang some weights.

Anytime fitness at Vancouver is perfectly acceptable gym. The management is active and involved. The equipment is cared for. There is enough equipment for what I need to do. And it is 24 hours, which is a must for me. The price is reasonable and I feel that I have gotten good value from the gym.

Might try Sport Central.

I need a 24 hour gym and it seems to be this and Anytime but Sport Central is less than half the price.

Looks pretty big from pics too so I'll probably never have to worry about lack of equipment.

Bonus points for the basketball court, I've been dying to just mess around and shoot all winter.

It has pretty bad reviews but they seem to be about payment and charging canceled memberships. I'll just pay in cash.

Sport Central doesn't have a basketball court. RSF (Richmond Sports & Fitness) has one if you're talking about that instead. It's literally up the street from Sport Central and 24/7 as well.
