Even though I am a resident of Northglenn, I prefer this facility for their exercise equipment. There are so many machines and TV's with rarely a wait, unless you are like me, and need a specific machine located where I can watch CNN.

I do Silver Sneakers classes here and they are great. Suzi and Tracy make your efforts pay off. They also have a good selection of machines and pool. The hot tub after really hits the spot.
