- there are so many cardio machines to choose from, you can pretty much find a piece of equipment in every corner of the building. there is an old charm to the building and not to mention free towels to use. the prices are great and everyone that works there is very friendly. – jsmith0808, Citysearch
- Although the club is definitely older than your LA Fitness or the like, the customer service is great and the facility is awesome. I love the crazy layout and appreciate the many amenities, such as the steam/sauna/hot tub/tanning, even if I don't use them all. – Danielle J., Yelp
Olympic Athletic Club
Members of Olympic Athletic Club strengthen their muscles in a building where weary nineteenth-century travelers used to rest theirs. The historical former hotel still exudes old-fashioned glamour, from the theater-like marquee and a clock designed by renowned neon artist Roger Legerano to the interior's leather furniture and exposed brick walls. A tour of the inside of the club also reveals why it was named Best Workout Venue in 2009 by the Ballard News-Tribune and Best Health Club in 2012 by Seattle Magazine.
In addition to rows of cardio machines with personal-viewing screens, visitors catch a glimpse of group classes that range from meditative tai chi to high-intensity boot-camp workouts. Children in the Kids Korner can entertain themselves by calculating the number of calories in an invisible friend's lunch while their parents swim laps in the pool or play a game on the basketball and racquetball courts.
