Awesome classes, huuuuuge pool w lots of lanes, great machines, plenty of parking when it's not 6-8am or 5-7pm. Love this place. They give you workout towels and your finger print or pin is all you need. No annoying membership keys to carry around.

The Monterey Sports Center has two pools (the smaller one is great for kids and nice heat for rehabilitation hydrotherapy), basketball courts, exercise rooms, classes for yoga/zumba/pilates/ etc. and saunas. Good locker spaces and showers and a nice coffee shop/snack area.
