This is a great place for me to stay fit during our winter months here in Brooomfield. As a runner and casual biker in summer, this allows me to use the weight machines, pool, hot top and treadmill in the winter for a more well-rounded workout. I enjoy the big pool, and do laps here, even though I'm no great... More

This gym offers a good selection of exercise equipment and weights as well as a swimming pool. It can be very busy at times and the locker rooms could use some updates but it is still an all around good place to go for exercise.

This center has a lot of aerobic machines, weights, workout areas etc. Very nice pools with slides, a whirlpool, spacious locker rooms. The staff is great! They are all helpful and friendly. Lots of stuff for kids,also, including a play area, child sitting and more. Reasonable prices also, especially on an annual pass.

I like the all ages approach and and I don't get stares from people because I am not as fit as they are. Great place for locals or if you are on vacation. They have the usual assortment of free weight and fitness machines, ellipticals, treadmills. kids pool, and adult pool amenities. But what I like is that you see... More

Paul Derda is a great rec center. You can do anything from work out, swim and enjoy the hot tub. It has activities for children as well as adults.

Pretty cool rec center. Nice pool with slides and lazy river. My daughter is in gymnastics there and I lift with free weights. Gym is nice but more free weights would make this awesome. Only one squat station that's not a machine. Overall we love coming here. Check it out. Tours are welcome.

Amazing pool with slides, a lazy river, a jacuzzi, and an area for laps and toddlers. The area for weightlifting has about everything you would want or need and it is always clean and organized. I really adore this place and go many times a week to either workout or just relax in the pool. It's great for kids, adults,... More

I workout here several times a week. Their weight equipment is brand new and well maintained (sometimes there is a sign that something is out of order, but never for more than a few days). Staff are always very friendly and helpful. Always clean. I use either the locker room for showers (or the family cabanas if I am showering... More

This place has a great small kids room-- parents and nannies can sit and chat on the benches while toddlers and preschool aged kids climb, crawl, roll, slide, etc. The theme is all these Rocky Mountain animals, places, and plants, so it's pretty aesthetically and educational in a way. I haven't checked out the water slides or adult amenities. It... More
