"I love this place. The babysitting room is so amazing and my daughter absolutely loves coming here for her swim lessons and other activities. As a hardworking father it’s relieving knowing my daughter is having fun and in good safe hands while I get a little “me time” to finally get myself back into shape and relax in the sauna and steam room. This place is clean, extremely friendly and family oriented. 10/10 in my eyes"-Jack H. WMAY Member
