After careful consideration and based on my experience I decided to give the Y of Portage 5 starts. Here is my honest review:ProsPrice: This is kind of tricky, but I think that if you live in a household with more than 3 people willing to go to the gym then the Y is a great option for you. For individuals may get a little tricky as you can probably get cheaper gyms in the area. One thing that I like about the Y is that they give you a key ($25 one-time charge only) that gives you access to the gym 24 hours every day.Staff and classes: Staff is always friendly and the gym offers different classes and activities. I never took one, but seem to have a variety of them.Facilities: This one is also a little tricky as most of the equipment and the cardio machines are old, but be certain that everything is functional. If you want to do cardio they have treadmills, ellipticals, and stairmasters. If you want to do weights they also have different machines as well as free weights. Again, most of this equipment is old, but if you seriously want to workout you have everything you need in there. The gym also has two small stretching areas, and (this is probably top notch) a basketball and a raquetball court. They also seem to have a whirlpool (that I never use) and an infrared sauna that seems to be on and off (that I never used either because rules dont seem to be strictly enforced i.e. shower before entering and always use a towel). By the way, the gym also has a nice walking/running area if you dont like to use a treadmill.Activities: The gym seems to have a ton of activities that you can participate.ConsI dont have many negative things to point out other than some of the facilities, the equipment, and the machines are a little too old. This is not a massive deal breaker though as you are able to perform all the activities that you want without a problem. The gym is clearly tailored to families, so if you are an individual you may need to think twice to join this gym as prices seem a little high for a single individual.
