Winston Family YMCA (Downtown)

221 Riverside Avenue
Jacksonville, FL 32202
Area: Downtown

About a mile from the Omni Hotel and a mile-and-a-half from the other hotels listed, this 70,000-square foot community center has everything athletic travelers desire at a reasonable $15 price. For those setting up camp in Jacksonville for a longer stay, the Y offers a $35/weekly pass as well.

The facility covers 3 floors. The first floor houses the pool and locker rooms. Cardio equipment and strength equipment is on the 2nd floor and the indoor running track is on the 3rd floor.  It looks down onto the cardio/strength "theater".  All equipment is updated and high quality.  There is plenty to get the heart beating and the muscles pumping. And if you need more, the group classes are there to serve via three group exercise studios. The 7,800 gymnasium is a bonus and houses full basketball court, two short courts and one volleyball court.

The lap pool is slightly above average. Swimmers flutter amidst 6 lanes divided by floating lane lines and bottom stripes.  There are pull-buoys, kickboards and a pace clock.

This Y offers towel service, massage, and free WiFi.
