I nominate the Wellness Center at DeKalb Medical. It offers a variety of services and programs for fitness, wellness education and medicine. The friendly staff caters to any age group and fitness level. There are free weights and cardio equipment, plus an indoor track and swimming pool, and dozens of group fitness classes. The locker rooms have showers and free towel service. Memberships are on a month-to-month basis and there are no contracts. The Wellness Center at DeKalb Medical has it all.

East Lake YMCA has the best treadmill and equipment area & pool. Decatur Dekalb YMCA has the best classes.

Operation Boot Camp at Decatur High School is the best place to get an awesome workout!

Depending on your needs, its hard to be the Decatur Dekalb Y. The instructors are phenomenal, almost without exception. Very motivating and fun. They offer a variety of classes for all types of fitness and desires. The free weight room is in the dungeon which the hard core lifters like and the others do, too! Great experience.

Decatur-Dekalb Y on Clairemont. I've been swimming there since the late 80's with a lapse while I was out of state. They're still the best!

The Wellness Center at DeKalb Medical is tops!!

I love Corebody. So convenient, approachable, affordable, and Eileen has changed my life! I recommend it to anyone.

I nominate the DeKalb Medical Wellness Center. It is the very best...I have belonged for many years. It has helped me through the years to allow me @ 70 yrs of age to feel better than when I was 40 and not exercising....and to complete 20 Peachtree Road Races!!. I just can't do it without the Center and the wonderful staff! Barbara French

DeKalb Wellness Center rocks! Something for all ages and all fitness levels.

I nominate Dekalb Medical Wellness Center. Two and a half short years ago I walked into their doors at 27 years old, 550 lbs, with no judgement and nothing but love and support. Now 235 lbs. lost later, I have completely recovered my life in a tremendous way, and thanks is owed to the place that has become a home for my journey and I have found such a great community within. This is what a real gym is supposed to be about! A GEM of a GYM!
Jenn August 17, 2012 at 06:21 PM
Fitwit is the shiznit! Seriously, workouts could not get any more fun or effective as this fitness camp!!
Lisa Cohen August 17, 2012 at 08:17 PM
maybe i am biased since i am officially subbing yoga classes at the Decatur YMCA now, but after 15 yrs or so as part of the Y community, it truly is a great facility with a family feel and so many resources for anyone who is willing to strive for their own blueprint of optimal health!
Jenn L August 18, 2012 at 02:28 AM
I love my FitWit at Decatur High!!!
