Relatively small but OK for size

The layout was awkward - and took a bit of figuring to get to the weight room and treadmills. Limited machines - but still OK.

I have been a member for about 8 years. The RAC used to be an excellent gym with a great staff. Since it was sold a few years ago, it has steadily declined. By now the new management has chased off many of the good staff members by (among many other things) not paying their salaries, has alienated and chased... More

I've been a member for two years and when I joined it was because of location, access to free parking, good number of weight equipment pieces, towels available, enough cardio machines, pool, basketball court, and sauna/steam room options. There is a small indoor track options as well. I did note the interior felt tired and weary but was I willing.... More

I am not a gym crawler, but have belonged to gyms in the past. This gym is sterling: updated equipment, a nice atmosphere, good changing room/showers...and it's clean, clean, clean. What I liked most were the machines that adjusted very easily. In my last gym, you had to move pins to adjust resistance, but in this gym, you merely pushed... More

I had a great time working out here. They have an agreement with the Riverplace Hotel and offer great services. It's much nicer to have Riverplace Athletic Club as an option over a hotel workout room.

This is a very nice family oriented Athletic club located on Portland's waterfront right next to the Harbor. 2 Courts of basketball games at lunch and after work have a crew of regulars ranging from young working professionals to guys in their 60s which keeps the level of play from getting too high. State of the art weight room, lap... More

The RiverPlace Athletic Club (called "The RAC" by locals) is a plush yet friendly full-service club with something for everyone. The hard-core will enjoy the myriad weight training devices, the squash and basketball courts, the intense schedule of courses. Personally, I took the softer approach -- a few laps in the Olympic pool, followed by time in the jacuzzi (incredible... More
