Kettlebells is an awesome class! – McBurney is an awesome facility. I'm here all the time and use everything from running track to the workout machiens to the pool. I am currently taking kettlebell training with Richard Lehman. It boggles my mind that his class isn't promoted as much because it's easily the best thing I've taken here!
Excellent Gym – I have been a member for 3 years, and think this is a great gym. It is very low-key, with a wide range of members, old and young, in-shape and not. The staff is very helpful, despite what other reviewers say. I know people that have been members for over 40 years, and some of that is because of how helpful the staff is.
This is a good place to get away from yuppies, jocks, and hipsters too. My only complaint is that sometimes the machines are not fixed fast enough after they break, but they are about to put in all new machines, so there you go....
IMPROVMENT – THE FRONT DESK NEEDS IMPROVEMENT, I TRIED TO REGISTER FOR SWIMMING LESSONS AND THEY MADE ME COME 3 TIMES AND I AM STILL NOT ABLE TO REGISTER. AND EVERY TIME I HAVE TO WAIT ON LONG LINE.
I FINALLY GIVE UP TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM JUST BECAUSE THE FRONT DESK ARE NOT WELCOMING.
IT DID REMIND ME OF DMV....
MAY BE IT'S CHEAPER THAN OTHER PLACES BUT YOU GOT WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
Nice Facility - Rude People – The McBurney YMCA is a beautiful gym. There is a huge pool, new machines with televisions, basketball court, weight room, free classes, indoor track and more. The only problem that I have at McBurney is with the people who work there, and some of the patroms. The staff is generally rude and unhelpful, and many of the gym's members are "bitchy" bussybodies. I've seen several fights break out in Yoga class. Bottom line... Bring your iPod and keep to yourself.
Nice facility, Incompetent Staff, Idiotic Hours – The facility is nice but the staff is utterly incompetent and quite useless. Additionally the fact that they close at 8 PM on Saturday and Sunday is about as intelligent as their staffing decisions.
This YMCA staffs does not care members but ignore!!! – Facilities, classes and members are good.
However STAFFS do NOT CARE for a member who has a hard time b/c of a few staffs who are very rude, abusive, dishonest, gossipy, scheming, and discrimating - even though the member reported to get help several times. They said they would help, but did not even try.
Rather, some staffs INCLUDING A DIRECTOR IGNORE the TRUTH and the member. They did not even try to figure out the truth. The member was there to relax and enjoy exercises, but got hurt so many times b/c of the staffs in a female locker room - some females also complained about them.
YMCA should listen to, care for even one member and try to slove the original matter.
Editorial Review by Marcella Veneziale – This branch of the well-known YMCA organization offers a full gym, swimming pool, and kids' programs.
Comfortable place – The McBurney is clean, and the staff are friendly. The facilities are more than adequate (nice pool and indoor track). Every cardio station has it's own TV with headphone jacks, so you don't hear loud cheesy music pumping when you walk in the door. The clientelle is different from that of other gyms I've been to. It's a community gym - you get young and old alike, and there aren't too many body builders walking around. The membership fee is a bit high, but I feel good that some of the money is going back into community programs. Highly recommended.
