I am a member of the Y and I love it, love it, love it!! Of course the swimming is great, but I also like both the cardio and weight rooms at our Y. They have lots of equipment, it's clean, and I've never had to wait to get a machine.
If you have kids, it's especially helpful. Our Y offers a program called Kids Club during the summer. It's free with your membership and they take kids ages 5-12 from 9-11 a.m. Monday thru Friday and do crafts, movies, field trips, etc... with them. That means my kids will be happy and entertained and I can work out for two hours each morning all summer. For us it's perfect.
