Review №1

Friendly, helpful staff. Appropriate social distancing and sanitation is followed. A kid-friendly place and good for adults too.

Review №2

I’ve been going to this Y for about a year and a half now. Staff is super helpful and friendly and the grounds are kept super clean. I’d you’re looking for a YMCA location for your family, look no further. I live in this area so it’s a perfect location for me. Can’t wait to continue to keep going to this YMCA for as long as I can

Review №3

Great exercise facility. Neat and clean environment, friendly clientele, and excellent staff. This is the place to go for your daily dose of exercise in a high quality family-friendly YMCA!

Review №4

I tried going back to the pool after they reopened during the pandemic. The Y is doing a fantastic job keeping everything clean and safe. But when I exercise I stand in one spot in the lap pool, neck deep, moving my arms, legs and waist. With only 5 people in the lap pool I had to stop exercising in order to not make physical contact with two teens who came within reach. I didnt say anything to them. I remember being a teen. I would have been having fun and forgotten, too. But out of respect for them and myself I wont back for a while.

Review №5

I love the Precor machines for tracking your workouts and progress. I have been frequenting this Y for the last few months. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Very nice facilities.

Review №6

Very friendly staff and fun pool. Lifeguards and swim coaches are great!

Review №7

Great place everyone is kind Thanks for all of you who work so hard in keeping it clean so we can be safe a big up

Review №8

Great place, worked out in the pool to get into the cardio and almost no impact on the knees. Great variety of workout machines and the staff are extremely helpful. By far my fav of the YMCAS.

Review №9

Love the classes they offer. Staff at this location arent very attentive and friendly to those that arent from from around there or regulars. If it wasnt for the classes I would not go to this particular location.

Review №10

Extremely friendly and helpful staff and awesome facility - clean, new, and has everything you need in a gym and more!

Review №11

I am on a local swim team and love the pool here

Review №12

Very welcoming and helpful staff! The facilities are really clean! Best YMCA Ever!

Review №13

Kathy was very nice and helpful; we are looking forward to being a part of the Jackson R. Lehman family.

Review №14

Very friendly staff. Went above and beyond when we left something behind. They found it for us and held it till we came the next week.

Review №15

Good place to work out and nice swimming facilities.

Review №16

Awesome place to get your workout on!

Review №17

When they first open back up I was kind of skeptical how about how they were going to do the sanitation in Social distance but after going for 2 weeks now Im extremely satisfied in the sanitation in the social distance part everyone that goes into the weight room or cardio room they have you get your own sanitation bottle

Review №18

I was very happy with how clean they keep the gym. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly.Thanks MJ mistry

Review №19

Love this place and the people that work here are sweet and helpful too

Review №20

Great, clean YMCA. The pool is the deepest of the surrounding Ys, and there is a big heated pool next to it. Has what all the other Ys have, its great. (No outdoor pool though)

Review №21

We have been going here for the past few year. Living in NE Fort Wayne, we never knew what we were missing by not having a great YMCA. This has been fantastic. Plus my wife has become a Pickle-ball fanatic!

Review №22

I was very impressed by this facility. It had a beautiful atmosphere. I loved their scripture verse bowl and verses painted on the walls. I was coming in as a young man was taking the flag down. I was pleased to see he was making sure it did not hit the ground. But he wadded it up in his arms and carried it in. One suggestion though. Teach your staff how to fold a flag the proper way. Our nation is getting so far from respecting this national treasure. Taking a flag is a 2 person privilege. Thanks for listening.

Review №23

Very clean. Great people that work there as well.

Review №24

I love this ymca. Sorry haven’t been going doing to the virus out

Review №25

Awesome place to work out. I have the family membership and its the greatest. They have child care for me to drop my 3y/o off at. She loves it! When not working out, were cooling off in the pool

Review №26

The staff from the door to the child watch are very friendly! The facilities are clean and the pool is warm! The machines are newer, so this Y is always first choice for me!

Review №27

Best Y in Fort Wayne, hands down. Very clean and helpful service. The layout and saunas and classes and everything are awesome. Lots more options than other gyms. I love the stretch area,i took off one star because I just hate the Ys time schedule how it closes so early and EXTRA early on weekends. Not everyone is free in the early morning and afternoon.

Review №28

Cooking class so entertaining and relaxing, thank you for offering cooking for one as a group activity!

Review №29

Great and newest Y in the Fort Wayne group. The people that work there and go there are really nice. They have many great classes.

Review №30

Great place to sign up for gym membership.The classes,the childcare, the hospitality is pleasing.Various activities and an always friendly environment is the place to be when needing some alone time and of course a healthy workout to keep the mind and body fit.Good job to the Jackson R.Lehman team and staff

Review №31

All of the greater fort Wayne YMCA locations are really nice, but this one is my favorite so far. Smaller warm pool and the large cooler pool, with a kids area in the warm pool. Steam room and dry sauna are great. Its all clean, workout equipment and indoor track are all in great shape. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Little game area with pool table and table tennis. Nice locker rooms, just absolutely nothing to complain about. Really, no matter which fort Wayne YMCA location you are close to, they are worth the cost.

Review №32

We love the warm water pool

Review №33

My son and I just LOVE this YMCA location! The staff is very friendly, there is so much to do and we have really enjoyed the youth sports programs for young children. So grateful this was built on our side of town.

Review №34

The staff are so nice and kind the track is amazing. Party rooms are big. Good area for younger kids to play at. If I could I would recommend this as a 10.

Review №35

We were very impressed with the open feel layout of this YMCA. We toured two in looking to choose our main location. We liked the Jackson R. Lehman location for the more open feel of the workout area and the kids pool area.We will probably utilize other locations for their different offerings, but Jackson R. Lehman location will be home.Theron also did an excellent job giving us a tour.

Review №36

Nice to be back in gym

Review №37

The YMCA IS Nice,missing a whirlpool though. However, I am greatfull for the physical therapy unit in it.

Review №38

I am very picky about where I exercise. This is the cleanest and modern exercise facility that I have been too. There are lots of families and kids, but the YMCA is so big that it is never crowded. The staff is very helpful and there is a person who greets you when you come in and leave (and with a smile!). The locker rooms are clean and not run-down (as in many gym facilities). The monthly membership is about 45 dollars. It is worth it if you are committed to exercise. Also, there are lots of great classes (I recommend the Pilates and Synergy 360 classes, especially) - active and energetic instructors. Again, one of the best and definitely worth the money.

Review №39

Calm YMCA. It does not seem as noisy and crowded as some of the other locations. Very open and inviting lobby and entry area. Try the sensory room!

Review №40

Clean and helpful staff

Review №41

My favorite Y and I love Zumba with Tomas!

Review №42

This Y has a great variety of cardio equipment. Its always neat and clean, staff are friendly and helpful. Free weight and weight machine area is a bit crowded and theres very few classes after 3PM at this location.

Review №43

Its a VERY nice place, but I wish they had MORE open swim time. The warm water pool really helps my body hurt less.

Review №44

Great Y. Open clean facility. Everyone is so nice and helpful. Pool is almost always open for swimming. Kids to Seniors are easily accommodated. Love it.

Review №45

Love the facility, hate the faucets and the mens room.

Review №46

Very helpful and nice. Everyone was willing to help me with the process of signing up.

Review №47

The pool at this YMCA is really neat, they have one area thats just for swimming, doing laps, Etc, and then they have a completely separate pool thats for kids and is heated so moms dont freeze to death. The staff seems really friendly and helpful too, and their locker rooms are great.

Review №48

Always love the Y

Review №49

We go at a good time. Were retired.

Review №50

Great people and ONE Therapy has great people as well!

Review №51

Very pleased. Excellent staff. Many programs to choose from. Multiple classes available. Good hours. Good availability of cardio machines. Occasionally have to wait on machines or free weights during peak usage times. Facility is always clean and in good condition.

Review №52

Just joined the Y..this branch is exceptional. Clean, friendly and family oriented. So glad we found it.

Review №53

Brand new facility. Friendly environment. Not too busy during the weekdays. They *dont* have an outdoor water park or a hot tub @ this location. They *do* have a lap pool, a warm kids pool, a sauna & a steam rm. Nice variety of workout equipment. Fyi: the pool changing rm floors are always wet. In conclusion, this place is clean & convenient.

Review №54

Absolutely love the new Y its stays clean, the workout equipment is phenomenal and the staff are so helpful and great. If you dont know how to use the equipment theres people there who show you. I love the pool and steam room. I highly recommend everyone who hasnt been there to go check it out its worth it.

Review №55

Thank you for the trunk or treat my granddaughter loved it.

Review №56

As good as any Y can be.

Review №57

Places seems nice lots to do..... if not closed down for constant repairs or cannot use because no staff available. Charging guest 10 bucks does not average competition pricing. Got to do better. You got at least 3 fitness studio within same distance with better offers to workout.

Review №58

Nice newer facility. I just dont like the way toddler corner pool is along ramp for disabled because kids lay in water on ramp and get in way for elderly trying to use ramp to pool. Lifeguards fail to stop them. Not like that they have no hot water jacuzzi.

Review №59

The sensory room was pretty rad.

Review №60

We love the Y! Our daughter has been taking swimming lessons since they opened at this new location and she’s learned and grown so much! We’ve loved each and every one of her instructors, feel comfortable leaving her at the child care, love the workout machines and the track upstairs. I actually prefer that there not be a hot tub because it would be a constant battle with our toddler, and love the smaller size- she can run in front of me and never get too far or out of sight. Family friendly, friendly staff, lots of classes and tons of activities!

Review №61

Everything you need. Great hours. Awesome free weight selection with deadlift and squat cages!!

Review №62

This is a great place for families to work out or just hang out in the pool. They have daycare for two hours maxuim. That gives parents time for a good workout. They have two pools, one for swimming and the other one is a split pool for the young ones and the other is great for beginner swimmers. If youre military ask for the yearly discount on fees.

Review №63

I just like playing basketball and working out

Review №64

Friendly staff and excellent swimming lessons.

Review №65

Save place to get yourself better

Review №66

Great gym. The Play & Learn Center for kids is excellent. They have an amazing outdoor pool & splash pad. It is a wonderful place for family fun!

Review №67

Facility is nice and clean. The three down sides are: there is no hot tub, the heated pool is NOT heated and the showers/locker rooms are outside of the pool room so you shiver walking through the halls after an exhilarating swim. Not much thought went into the engineering of the pool area.

Review №68

Not just a regular YMCA.My wife and I are a military family and she is frequently away for long stretches of time. So we switch between single and family memberships depending on where she is. Danielle, a manager at the YMCA, gave me a call today and let me know they had been charging us for the full membership, even though its just me right now, and was going to place me back on the single membership plan. Saving me $23/mo.Wow!!!Then she offered me credit for the past months!!!!I cant think of a single other service I use that would be so concerned for me and my family. Thank you all so much!Tl;dr: Danielle went out of her way to notify me of a billing error AND retroactively fixed it.

Review №69

Great wellness and fitness resource/center. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, bright, and well-maintained facility.

Review №70

Beautiful and spacious location. The indoor Pools are awesome!

Review №71

The staff was very nice and helped us to get signed in as visitors under my mother-in-laws name. We were visiting from out of state and go the Y at home all the time. We were very pleased with the equipment, gym and bathrooms. Everything was nice and clean and although they were busy, it wasnt too crowded. We wish our Y at home had some of the newer features this location had!

Review №72

Review №87

Love it there. Best facility Ive ever been to.

I love this location. Perfect for my lifestyle with my kids. Only downfall is the child watch isnt open on Sundays but works out good for me bc I have a gym access at home. Employees are great. Glad they opened at this location.

Review №89

Very family oriented. Own kiddie pool, warm section of the swimming area for water aerobics. 6 lane swimming lanes for doing laps. Several rooms for different exercises for spinning, yoga, stretching, Zumba. etc. Also running track. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

Review №94

Family oriented, not too big, simple layout, friendly staff

Review №95

The new Y is great! Its clean and has lots of good classes. The staff is great and all the equipment is is in great order. I definitely recommend it.

Review №96

If you don’t have a membership here, we’re go to the wrong place. Great place to take your children for some pool time.

Review №97

Probably one of the best gyms in town. My go to place to break the has many facilities to members like a swimming pool and basketball and other things. The only bad thing is its usually crowded and closing times arent convenient for me. But that doesnt make it less than 5 stars.

Review №98

Clean, well laid out facility includes Parkview Physical Therapy, walking/running track, pool, sauna, steam, basketball and volleyball courts, weight lifting and aerobic equipment. Tons of classes offered throughout the day available and child care care and swimming lessons available for those with young ones. We have a regional membership through my employer and this is the Y we prefer to go to in Fort Wayne.

Review №99

This is by far my favorite YMCA in the Fort Wayne area. The staff is great, the facility is clean, the equipment is top notch.
