    Better than CRCE

    If you're gonna expel gas, at least do everyone else here a solid and not crop-dust. For real though. Kinda hard to lift that barbell with several plates with a haunting aroma in the air.

    Great facility. Always clean and well kept!

    Ladies, if you plan on showering here bring your own hair dryer. None work in the locker room and ARC no longer replaces nonfunctional ones.

    Don't come to the outdoor pool when it's 60 degrees out. We'll worry something is wrong with you

    Don't bring a bag out on the pool deck. We WILL find you. And we will tell you to put it in a locker. If you wanna know why, ask the huge sign in front of the entrance to the outdoor pool.

    Danny · August 14, 2012
