Kraft Family YMCA
I know this is totally not pool season. But since a lot of you are most likely reeling from the Halloween candy, getting ready to go into Holiday season, I bet you are contemplating a gym membership coming up. Well I have to suggest the Kraft Family YMCA in Apex if you are out that way. This place was beautiful and the kicker was the pool area: hello slide!
The Kraft Family YMCA is very large and very nice overall. I was very impressed with how large the facilities are. And it feels new-- I am not sure how long the Kraft Family YMCA has been available and open, but the place is beautiful. The spin room is separate from the group fitness room, both of which are large and open with glass walls out to the lobby. They offer a good selection of classes. There is an indoor track that is upstairs, allowing you the chance to walk around the perimeter of the basketball courts below. I know I mentioned the pool, but this is a good option for some indoor fitness as the weather cools.
But yeah, my eyes really bulged at the water slide. Adults and kids have to be impressed with it. And the pool is large, with a toddler area. Just something to consider as you look at memberships....
Like all YMCAs, there are family-friendly programs galore. They have a beautiful nursery (very clean) ready for your wee ones when you go to work out. They have preschool programs, track-out programs, and teen programs. They also offer special events. (As I am posting this, there is a Veteran's Day celebration on the horizon that promises family fun.)
And, in accordance with the YMCA's mission, it is affordable. For the amenities and facilites, the membership rates are quite affordable.
There are a lot of reason to join the Kraft Family Y : fair weather and foul. A haul from Chapel Hill, but we're putting this out there for our Apex readers, you lucky ducks.
