Review: Having been to several YMCA’s in DFW in the past, I had great expectations for the Plano YMCA and was not disappointed. The first thing I noticed about this location was its enormous size–inside and outside. The fields adjacent to the facility are used for track and soccer. Inside the facility I had many warm smiles and greetings from members. This truly felt like a community facility with people from all age groups actively using the facility. I first made my way to the weight room and spent some time using the free weights. The benches were clean and all of the weights were neatly organized. The room was properly air conditioned and I barely broke a sweat even with a vigorous workout. I decided to do some cardio work and spent about fifteen minutes on a cycling machine while listening to the soft rock from the speakers in the room. Though this facility’s membership prices are slightly higher than other DFW locations I did have the option to use the sister facility also located in Plano. After my work out I checked out the locker room and showers and was not surprised by the level of cleanliness present. With so many members using the facility the clean nature of the facility is really a testament to the copasetic regimen the employees have. One extra benefit to this facility is how close it is to the extensive biking trails Plano has to offer. I asked an employee about bike storage and was told that many members bike to the facility as well as go biking after a workout and that it was not uncommon. Overall I had a good experience at the Plano YMCA and will make frequent bike stops as I ride on Plano Trails.
