I've only eaten there for catered events and have not been impressed. Things are programmed in, prepared well in advance, and choices are sparse. Food is mediocre at best. It is a gym, after all, so the food is an afterthought. There may be a lot of reasons to go to the DAC, but the food isn't one of them.

this is a lovely health club in the center of the small city. nice equipment, good food and even micro brews. great place to have convivial conversation, to get in some exercise, to hang out with other families or just go by yourself and have a work out.

Great spin class. The instructor was attuned to the participants, and helped set up bike controls. She had great music . The age group here is a little older than what I'm used to, but they were friendly and pleasant. It's a do your own thing kinda place. Attached parking, if you're driving Clean women's locker room.

Already said it, but this might be a good place to go if you work in downtown Eugene. All in all, the YMCA seems a more welcoming environment, especially for families. Of course if you do not have a family, this club would definitely be the better choice.

The DAC has great equipment, amenities and atmosphere. Love the wood and Restored touches from buildings previous life as one of the old traditional buildings in Eugene.

The DAC is not cheap, but if you can afford it (and especially if you work downtown), it's great! There are good classes, enough machines, free towels, and it's generally not overly crowded. There's a restaurant upstairs with nice outdoor seating in the summer. There's excellent, affordable childcare as well. Some of the facilities could use an update and aren't... More

A downtown location with accessible parking, well maintained equipment, many different group fitness classes, and a great staff. Everything one could ask for in an Athletic Club.
