Great space with tons of room for weights and machines. Love the pool for its size, four lanes plus some room for lessons and an additional training pool so aquafit and other programs always leave room for lane swimming! Haven't done too many of the classes but they look fun. The yoga class is decent for a Y, you get your stretches and sun salutations, and it isn't full of pro-yogis which is nice and less intimidating. Overall clean facility with lots of room to get fit. Staff are very friendly and make you feel like part of the community :)

Not the best place to rent event space in. The 2nd floor rotunda room is spacious, but that's about it. Good luck getting in shipping and receiving if it's around 7 in the morning to supply the event catering or rentals. You'll be late every time and the people who hired you will be annoyed. This happened more than twice when we were hired to supply there on different venues. Shipping and receiving should just be called "Shipping and Waiting outside for 1/2 an hour." The intercom button is there just for show, it's a functional illusion to provide you with false hope. Also, good luck plugging something in like a coffee urn or anything that pulls voltage beyond a flashlight as it'll short-out. We thought our equipment wasn't working, until we were told NOT to plug them in since they haven't updated their electrical system in years in the EVENT SPACE!! Also, good luck finding running water in the EVENT SPACE!!! You'll actually be told to use the public washrooms for running water. So from now on when a customer hires us to provide service for them and they give us the delivery address, the ever incorrigible "20 Grosvenor." I graciously say "no problem" (knowing it's a lie) hang up the phone, shed a forlorn tear/wipe my face and get back to work.

I moved to this Y from another Y after being mistreated by staff and a few members at that location Godd facility. Clean and well maintained Friendly Staff and Members Class Fitness Areas are large to accommodate the larger Classes Large facility and so much to do. Lots of Classes to choose from at good times Updated machines and equipment They finally have a Functional Training Room with TRX Members are actually allowed to use TRX (unlike another Centre that only allows it for PT) Downside is WiFi is only available to Plus Members Downside there are more kids at this location so it is loud at peek times.

This is the most SCREWED up YMCA I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO!!! Half of the urinals don't work.. the showers flood when you take a shower.. I came to this location because I was stuck in Toronto for work.. I was originally from the Chatham Kent branch and I was told that I could use my membership across all of North America.. only to find out I was denied Entry one evening because they told me I needed to convert my membership over to that branch in order for me to continue using it. An Extra 240$ a year I would have to pay for an over crowded gym that doesn't doesn't fix their equipment when broken.. They stated that its the cost of living in Toronto.. well why the heck do they state when you sign up you can use it anywhere in NORTH AMERICA! if the policy is you have to convert to a gym location and pay the higher rate? for crappier service? I would suggest anyone that is thinking or considering a membership to try else where.. perhaps a University school gym where the rates are cheaper and you know the equipment is going to be maintained properly and quickly.. I give this branch two thumbs Down!!!!

Just the usual ymca experience. It's good when you have kids. The problem with these places is that registered programs like swimming can be full. The wait list can them be very long.

Gym has rusted Barbell and equipment My credit card was expired which cause late payment, Staff treated me like a criminal got detain in room. Through out time people will realize YMCA staff only care about plus member(who pay 105 per month) If you expect YMCA is community gym think again. They only care about profit.

A great gym and community centre as a whole. It is conveniently located along the subway line and should you require parking, there is parking for gym members. What's even better is that there are squash courts and a swimming pool -- the combination of which is rare to come by. The only drawback is the cost of membership is quite high.

Gym is okay..Basic..can get loud and crowded. I prefer the World Gym which is on Milner and Mccowan and it is also much much cheaper. I wish there was a women's only workout area in YMCA but unfortunately they don't have it. I got the YMCA membership so i can go to the Acquafit classes and their other fitness classes such as Arriba, bollywood dance, kettlebell etc are really good as well. The experienced instructors make the classes much more fun and entertaining.

Gym is fine. There's only one squat rack though. No power racks nor any deadlift platforms-which is probably why I'm not going to sign up after the free trial. Weight training area is pretty tight. Wasn't to crowded when I first went, so I was pretty lucky I only waited about 5 minutes for the squat rack (december 20, 2014).

Waited a long time for this to open, great facility , if you have premium membership the Steam room is the best I've been in. Well equipped with great equipment and good programs. Friendly helpful staff. As mentioned not to close to food (though the distillery is maybe a 5 minute walk and there are a number of storefronts planned to open now that the neighbourhood is being occupied (also a short walk up to King or Queen for some food options ) Streetcars begin servicing this spot by the end of June and there are lots of bike racks. Parking is limited but there are lots within reasonable walks, it is a downtown urban location parking will always be an issue (it's worse at teh downtown location)

The gym is conveniently located and carries a fair legacy of the true Christian founding principals of the YMCA: Body, Mind and Spirit. Sadly, my recent interaction with the swimming pool attendant made me realize how are the Christian principals are being neglected here. James, the swimming pool attendant at Grosvenor St makes inappropriate comments about swimmers: commenting on their ability to swim and their physical abilities. This may be considered entertaining or funny for some, even for James, to my taste this is very rude and unacceptable behaviour and the swimming pool attendant should be disciplined or be provided a better training. Lack of training - is a danger for other swimmers, they may accidentally fall or slip and the YMCA may be facing legal motion as consequences to an untrained staff. It is very easy to avoid and assure your staff is following best practices as well as the founding Christian Principles of the YMCA.

I've been a member at the Central YMCA Toronto for a year now.  I looked at a number of gyms in the area, including extremely slick ones with great equipment, but everything else paled in comparison.First and foremost, the staff and volunteers are simply excellent!  They are prompt and efficient.  Most of all, they treat members with courtesy and decency, which is such a refreshing change from most businesses who treat customers more or less like sources of money and not much more.Second, I like supporting non-profit community-oriented organizations like the YMCA.  They have a fantastic range of community support programs, including for kids, senior citizens and recent immigrants.  Over and above being a non-profit, the Central YMCA is a well-run organization.Third, I have been there on different days and times, and there is always enough equipment for me to work out.  The machines are in good shape and there is enough space to stretch and exercise most of the time.  The locker room is decent.  There is a better locker room for those who want to pay a premium.Fourth, it is quite affordable.  The rates they charge are reasonable, especially given their facilities.  For new members, there is not only an orientation of the entire place but initial workouts with a trainer that are free.Overall, the Central YMCA is highly recommended!

I'm in the members plus, so I get a more pampered experience.There's a lounge, newspapers, TV, coffee/tea, a private work out area and stretching area. There is also towel service and overnight locker service as part of your membership.The showers, steam room, and sauna are all well maintained.The whirlpool could really use a few cleanings/year.Staff is generally very enthusiastic and approachable, with a few exceptions on the weekends. Beware Friday nights and weekends - lots of kids here, even in the Members+ area. These young teens, especially, can be very disrespectful (often swearing or bullying others) and like to break facility rules.I like to go at off-peak times. I appreciate that we can use the spin studio now, outside of class times. I swim and lift and feel there is adequate equipment and space to complete my work outs.

Generally I love the downtown Y. The diversity of people, all class backgrounds at different fitness levels I feel pretty at home. The weight room can be a bit intimidating with lots of muscle guys at times but as i get more comfortable with using free weights it seems less intimidating and that most people are just busy doing their thing or will offer tips if you are struggling.Don't miss out on the rooftop garden, track and area for stretching. I only just discovered this! The $2 towel is a bit much in my opinion but i just bring my own. the rental locks are very tricky so bring your own sometimes the women's washroom is a bit gross they do clean it very regularly but there is a lot of traffic and its not a new facility. I have only once had a bitchy staff member, she was likely just having an off day like we all can, mostly they are awesome.

I love the Y. This is hands down the best place to exercise. The staff are so friendly and consistently say hello and goodbye every time I go. Weight room staff even offer to help you lift or give you a form check. I love the diversity of people that work out there from the young adults who play basketball and volleyball, to the kids learning karate, to the senior citizens in aqua fit classes. It honestly feels like a home away from home where everyone smiles at you and encourages you. For specifics: the weight room is decent and has two squat racks. Go around 9pm when it's less busy. There is a track on the top floor and there's tons of classes to try like hatha yoga. The change rooms are clean and there are two pools. I'm there 3 to 4 times a week so say hello if you see me!

Normally I use the outdoors as my gym.  This winter, Mother Nature decided to cancel my membership.I prefer solitude when I exercise, and the idea of running alone in -30, snowy, icy, dark conditions made me anxious.  However, I missed the runner's high, so I decided to join up at the YMCA in order to have access to a heated, well-lit indoor track.  Since joining at the beginning of February, my visits have almost exclusively included this track, so keep that in mind when reading the rest of this review.Here's my experience so-far:Pros:- Month-to-month membership.  Yes, you have to pay an initiation fee if you haven't been a member within the last 12 months.  My first bill was about $160 (initiation fee and first month membership), and each month after that first payment sets me back $65.  I only plan on being a member for three months (bring on the sunshine, Mother Nature), which equals out to about $96/month for three months.  Pricey?  Yes, but I don't have to pay that for a full year (like I would at a majority of gyms after getting locked into a contract), and I USED to pay that exact amount back when I made the mistake of joining Extreme Fitness.- Tons of equipment, all in good working order.  When I worked out at the aforementioned brand-new Extreme Fitness at Richmond and John (this was about 7 years ago now), their equipment was constantly out of order.  I've seen machines with out-of-order signs at the Y that ACTUALLY GET FIXED.  Also, you may find yourself waiting awhile to get on a treadmill or elliptical, but it won't be for long.  And there is plenty to do in the meantime.- There are tons of activities to choose from.  I choose to run the track, but you can join up at a spinning or yoga class, or play basketball, or swim, or lift weights, or stretch, or play squash.  The choices to make your experience whatever you want it to be are basically endless.- Everyone leaves me alone.  That's not to say the staff/other members aren't friendly.  Security at the desk always greets you when you come in.  People have said hello and shared a smile in the changing room.  That's perfectly okay by me.  What I don't miss is having a personal trainer interrupt my workout and try to sell me on a 40-session personal training package by belittling my progress and making me feel bad about myself (can you tell I'm still bitter, Extreme Fitness?)- It's clean.  I mean, I'm not planning to eat dinner off the floors any time soon, but it's never felt dingy or unsanitary.- I've never had problems getting a locker or finding a space to change in the changing room.  At my old gym (I may have mentioned its name once or twice now) I would often leave without working out because every locker was occupied leaving me no place to lock up my bag.Cons:- The gym has a very distinct YMCA smell.  It smells exactly like every other YMCA I've ever set foot in - a combo of chlorine, body odour, and cheap disinfectant.  Other gyms don't smell quite the way the YMCA does.- I wish there was an enforced "athletic wear" dress code.  I know that the YMCA will do whatever they can to help lower income members, and I know that not everyone can afford the latest and greatest in athletic wear, but I find there to be something really off-putting about running (yes, running) next to a gentleman in a button-down shirt, wool pants, and black dress shoes.- People like to use the running track for things that aren't running.  Taking a phone call in the "running" lane is not cool.  I shouldn't have to pass you on the inside lane while you argue with your girlfriend.- I love that they allow all ages and walks of life to join.  It makes for a really diverse gym experience.  However, I wish that there was some rule about unaccompanied minors in certain parts of the facilities.  More than once I have almost been completely taken out by kids who decided to use the running track to race each other.  Yes, they ARE running, but they pass at close distances, yell at each other, and generally cause me to lose my focus.All in all, I have enjoyed my YMCA experience.  It had been years since I had stepped foot in one, and it was easy to transition back.  It was nice to have a safe place to go and workout.  I'm leaving my membership behind because the weather is slowly but surely changing.  But I'll definitely be back at the end of the year when once the mercury dips and the icy conditions begin to threaten my ankles.

All the staff, from the locker room attendants in the members change rooms, to the great life guards, to the front desk staff, everyone is so kind, helpful, and friendly.I also love that people of all genders, fitness levels, ages, ethnicities, and orientations are members making it feel very welcome for all... which is what I think the YMCA strives to be about.If you want to improve your level of fitness, but are intimidated by your local gym, try the YMCA, they really do want to help you!

My husband and I have been members for a few months now and we absolutely love it. There are so many classes on the schedule, there's something for everyone. I am a beginner swimmer and go pretty often to the adult swim classes. Although you dont get too much attention since theres quite a few people at different levels its great to practice. Members can also sign up for 8 week sessions that happen on Wednesdays. I go to the boot camp classes at least once a week. Those are definitely intense and gives you a great work out. They also have spin classes, yoga. 2 running tracks one indoor and the other on the roof. There's also evening yoga classes up on the roof in the summer. The changing rooms are well maintained and the staff is great. If you are new to the Y you get a free week to try the classes.

The YMCA has for many years has been my place for physical fitness. As you know or not, they have tonnes of programs everyday so I have to give them a 4/5 for programming. A lot of the programs are good although they tend to have classes repeated a number of times throughout a certain weekday - I suppose so that everyone has a crack at a program in various slits for that day. I don't have a problem with the good programming. Why I gave the YMCA central on Grosvenor St. was because, and this was raised with front desk staff and a number of other staff and patrons of the pools is that the physical upkeep of the pool areas and men's change room are pretty terrible.For example, in the men's change room, approximately 1/2 the showers do not work, or water barely trickles out of them when you need to shower. Also, in the shower and men's change room area, for central YMCA, the lack if cleanliness has become so bad that I've put my membership on hold while I search the area for another gym and what that has a clean pool area. In the shower area, the floors are quite dirty and clumps of hair clog parts of the shower areas. The men's change room floor and the washroom areas are particularly unsanitary and I'm not sure they don't have enough people to keep it very clean (I can't be the only single man who has noticed the filth at the urinals and around the bathroom stalls) because other people by sheer volume alone must have made comments to the pool and men's change room areas being very dirty. The floors around the pool firstly, are quite dirty I feel, the pools not exceptionally clean and (EESH) parts of the pool deck again, with clumps of hair. The water temperatures of the warm pool ( there is only 1 warm pool for potentially hundreds of members who want to use the warm pool for therapy and exercise and is always packed - you now MUST register for so many aqua fit classes which is difficult and the people, very "cliquey" if you're in "their spot" of the warm pool, and they can be quite aggressive about it (not necessarily the ymca's fault of course), the water temperature is OK.  Most if the lifeguards there are part-time, a gig for a stepping stone, a simple job to get through university and sometimes their indifference and lack of enthusiasm in the water classes really does show. Some real nice lifeguards who have been there for years but a lot of them, with a high turnover rate, a bit cold, unfriendly and scarily detached when the pool should be watched , instead of the chatter between themselves on the pool's side. Sorry but going back to my -original point - the pool area and change room areas (at least for men, I can't speak for the women's change rooms !) are very dirty, have sloppy upkeep, the floors are to the point where I wouldn't walk barefoot in that entire area because it looks as if they are not scrubbed down daily or even more which, in this environment, I feel they should be for hygiene and safety. The bathrooms are very filthy, ---urine sitting in the urinals because they are broke and do not flush down the previous person before you---- (that is particularly upsetting) - that was the final straw that made me take a hiatus from the central YMCA for a while to find another gym. Interestingly enough, in comparison, I visited the Goodlife Fitness location on Park Rd (as a guest) and it was like another world. They kept their gym amazingly clean, the change rooms are very clean, even with some products for men, no filth, no YMCA smells - and that is bothersome because I hold the YMCA in much higher regards when it comes to maintenance and cleanliness for such a massive community organization. It has gotten only worse the past couple of years, I really personally have noticed. This is my experience and feelings only, but in chatting with other YMCA Central members, they too have complained to management about the uneasy and casual attitude to hygiene and cleanliness. I do not feel , like these other users, we are being taken seriously when you are afraid of walking in bear feet in such a highly public area that must focus more on cleanliness and hygiene - absolute #1 priority. I do not use the gym facilities upstairs much but from what I recall , they are kept in better shape.  But the pool areas? The change rooms? Not at all. So I hope the YMCA takes the facilities cleanliness to heart and starts repairs and upkeep very quickly. Great location, great programs and resources but that doesn't trump a hygienic environment.

Staff are hard to find and when you do find them, they are too busy chatting with each other to help. Some equipment is new and some dates back to last century- and believe me, you need to be wearing headphones when you work out, because the squeaking equipment  is painful!!!

We decided to put my 13 year old daughter into swimming program at the local downtown ymca. What a mistake...they are very difficult to get a hold of unless you are buying a membership or  something....everyone is in sales and not in service. MY daughter is in the bronze program and after 3 months still no report card..after 6 months in the same program ..nothing, and finally after several calls to see how she is doing and her progress, I had to call the manager. Poorly organized, no communication unless you buy something, and instructors are just to lazy to call or write something on paper as to your kids progress.I would not join this gym for its aquatics ...there are other good swimming facilities in the area

I would give them 5 stars if it wasn't for initial communication issues - it took me 2 month to get hold of them: my 3 emails and 2 phone calls were never returned. Yet, finally we were able to sign up Mark into a Learn to Swim Program and we are really happy with the results, Mark learned to swim and cannot wait to show off when we go to parents' cottage next week. We were amazed with his progress because my husband Paul was trying to teach him since he was 5, but it was always a disaster - Mark would end-up in tears and Paul swearing to never try teaching him anything again. Anyway, I can highly recommend these guys but you should just go to the pool when they have lessons instead of wasting time on calls and emails.

After 2 weeks of emailing trying to book a facility tour and get a few questions answered (and NO response), we decided to drop in and just do it on the spot.The girl at the front desk was hurrying, trying to get us to go through everywhere without any real time to ask questions or actually enjoy the tour.At the end she didn't even talk about prices until we asked and then she said she was still busy with a few other guests and to come back if we decide to join.I was extremely disappointed with the whole experience, so on our way home we stopped off at Yonge St. Fitness Center (Isabella and Yonge) afterwards, and joined on the spot (after our GREAT tour!)TOO BAD YMCA, YOU LOST OUT ON TWO MEMBERSHIPS!

This is n enormous ymca, the approach the help desks you can see aqua-fit classes taking place and beyond that the large pool, and beyond that the back wall.  this is a nice tease if you're thinking of joining.Work out areas are on three floors.  Big gym on the first floor.  Guaranteed to get exercise just climbing between these levels and there is ample equipment to alternate between should someone be using the machine you need.Hang out!!

I recently joined the YMCA after becoming tiresome of the Goodlife-douchebaggery. I pay slightly less than my Goodlife membership, around $60+ a month. If you are unable to make that fee, they have membership-assistance for those who have a tighter budget. With my membership here I get so much more. In one location there's a swimming pool, a large gymnasium for various sports, and a 2 floor work-out/weight room. On top of that, they offer a wide variety of fitness classes.What I find most refreshing about the YMCA is that the staff are friendly and helpful. When I started at the gym, one of the trainers helped me with my form when lifting weights. I didn't have to pay him for training sessions, he was just being genuinely helpful. It blew my mind.

It's a good, clean facility with well-trained staff.  I like the atmosphere but it can be busy at times.  It's great that they have a wide-variety of equipment and classes 'cause it helps avoid getting in a fitness rut.

Good thing I finally latched on to a healthy addiction: the YMCA.Compared to your neighbourhood gym, Adult General membership is mildly pricey at $62.15/month (on top of a $90-something initiation fee); however, I lovelovelove that they will help out anyone who isn't able to afford it. Accordingly, the clientèle is diverse and the furthest thing from a gaggle of trophy wives and gym rat yuppies. In other words, don't let things like your age, income, level of fitness or the percentage of spandex in your wardrobe deter you from joining.The price is fair considering that this gym has everything: pool, weights, cardio machines, yoga, tons of pick-up sports, in/outdoor running tracks, but most compellingly, scads of drop-in classes suitable for all fitness levels. Every day is like Christmas when I pick a class from the dizzying array of options: spinning, boot camp, pilates, kettle bell, stability ball...the list goes on. Instructors are approachable, inspiring and encouraging.The big downside for me is that there's no way of getting an overnight locker without a Membership Plus. This simple lass isn't shelling out over $100/month for what amounts to a pimped-out change room, when all she wants is to avoid schlepping her workout duds around.That aside, this place is the best.

Dear Management, please kindly pay some attention to your swimming pool and recreation staff and management at the Grocevenor location. Their supervising/management style may result in a visitor injury, trauma or a legal motion. Some of the swimming pool attendants are making inappropriate comments about visitors: joking about their body shape, ability to swim, physical ability. I dont find their comments appropriate, funny/entertaining nor will let this matters unattended. As they represent YMCA, I will escalate this issue further, to make sure that your swimming attendant staff is well trained, and YMCA is a safe environment.

Worst service ever! Web site does not provide any information about available programs and directing to come and ask in person. But when tried to come, found that no parking spots for visitors, only for members. How, the hell, I can register as a member if I can not even park and come inside!!!

as far as kids programs go , it's all middle eastern, arabic and indian kids. White kids are a definite minority. mine were practically the only white ones there. Just saying it's time to correct what the word "minority" means that's all. there is a common misconception in Toronto as to who are the minorities. as far as the facilities go i can only comment on kids programs. sports were disorganized, loud and noisy. sometimes i felt the kids were in control not the instructors.

the place looks great, staff are friendly and helpful, I suggest to join as plus member so you could enjoy working out rather than waiting around to find a spot, the gym after 7 pm isn't busy at all.

Great experience. All of them are very friendly. Language assessors are excellent (esp. Magda Rubio), Workshops were conducted very well and also very effective. Good place for newcomers to learn about the Canadian culture & to get all the required information at no cost.
