- Open Now
The dowd is great, best YMCA in Charlotte. Only negative thing about it is. It has kids league games in the gym or practices. The dowd is suppose to be an adult gym.. this is one of the reasons i left the YMCA.
The good - great facility, beautifully renovated, clean, doesn't smell sweaty like some gyms, lots of variety of classes, towels are provided, all props/equipment for classes provided (except yoga mats), two indoor pools, convenient app to check class schedules, child care provided, most employees are very nice The bad - traffic, parking, how crowded it gets, some employees have a lot of attitude and can't be bothered to be nice They are putting in a cafe soon (spring 2020)
They never answer the phone. They tried to charge me the months of Covid they were closed. Theres never parking at the Dowd. And this is the most expensive gym around. If I pay $50 a month, you should have enough staff to answer the phone. No excuse for 30 minute wait times.
