    Absolutely. I went in April (on a friends membership) and stayed at OKW. The OKW work-out room is really small (with little variety).

    After the first day I decided to go to my home resort (BCV) and it was free. THe BCV room is very good. Much bigger and many more options. The machines are great - as are the free weight "machines".

    For non DVC residents of Yacht and Beach club the cost is $25 per day!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now, here is my question - I hear the GF has a wonderful facility. Has anyone been there? And, is it free to DVC?

    Thanks.

    I know the BWV has a great room and I hear VWL has a very nice room also. As always no charge for DVC members. They have nice locker rooms also.

    I wonder if they're going to alter the OKW workout room as part of the pool slide construction. The pictures make it look like the whole general area will be redone to make room.

    We stayed at VWL over our spring break, 3-14-3/20. DH used the workout facilities at the Villas and raved about them! He said there were very few people ever there (and he went at various times on different days) and found it to be quite comfortable when compared with other workout facilities.

    Of course, no charge for DVC members!

    Sturdy Branches at VWL is a very nice workout facility

    DVC members can use free of charge while staying on resort property (could be DVC points or DVC cash or any WDW resort)

    thanks

    We're new owners at SSR but are staying at Pop Century next week. Do you think I can I go over to one of the DVC's to use the work out facility?

    I believe that the GF gym is a different situation than the DVC gyms.............The GF gym is part of the Spa and I believe it is a "Pay" gym, but very nice, nonetheless..........but the gym's at the DVC resorts are available to DVC members for free.......

    bom_noite - The GF gym is very nice but is is not free to DVC members. We stayed at the GF for a few days and got the family length of stay (I think is was $40 but I can't be sure) and it worked great for us. You can come and go as you please and use the gym and the spa facilities (whirlpool, sauna, etc.)

    There is no gym hopping just pool hopping. You would be allowed to use the gyms at DVC resorts I would think.
