Lincoln Family Downtown YMCA

350 North 1st Avenue
Phoenix, AZ 85003
Area: Downtown

This community center's inventory of cardio and strength equipment is ample and satisfying. Although the ground level cardio room is a bit tight with machines, most apparatus is in good condition and well maintained. Top-of-the-line Life Fitness and Precor brands are represented in addition to a few StairMaster units.

Similar to the cardio space, YMCA's downstairs strength area has its aesthetic moles (e.g., low ceilings and plain colors), but we cannot complain about the equipment supply. Plenty of free weights, stack-loaded stations and plate-loaded machines give the room the personality and character we care about.

The 4-lane, 25-yard lap pool will not captivate you with its charm, but your time will be spent staring at the bottom stripes and lane lines, anyway. A few toys were on deck during our tour so plan on mixing up that 4,000 yards with a little kick and pull. Bring your watch if intervals are on the training schedule, we did not see a pace clock. Towels and locks are provided, but bring your flip-flops for the showers.

Admission costs $10/day for non-members and $30/week. Bring your photo I.D. too.
