Welcome. My favorite gym is Bay Area Athletic Club. We have a curves, and a couple of others but BAAC is the only one that has a pool and all the major equipment. Some of the hotels will give discounts for them as well - don't be afraid to ask.
From Hwy 101 take Newmark Avenue (The intersection by the Casino). You can only turn one way as the other direction takes you into the bay :-) Go about 2.5 miles past WalMart and Past Cranberry Sweets. The gym is on the left hand side. When you get there wave to me! I live real close by. LOL

HELLO FROM COOS BAY!!! THERE ARE SEVERAL GYMS IN THE AREA. I HAVEN'T USED THEM IN YEARS. WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? YOU COULD ALWAYS HIKE THE DUNES IF ALL ELSE FAILS...YOU CAN SPARK MAIL ME OR GO TO MY PAGE AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN. L.
Interesting - we lived in Coquille for 8 years. During that time I worked with Dunes Patrol via Search and Rescue and Civil Air Patrol patrolling the dunes for safety, lost and aid. It was fun, interesting and a lot of work. Loved the area. Now live in Lyons, Oregon and rarely get to the coast.
As for a gym - never went to one while there. Sorry! Got my exercise in other ways.

I'm a temporary team member lol. I'm actually from California not Oregon but my family and I enjoy spending our vacation time every year riding ATV's at the Oregon Dunes. We will be staying in North Bend for almost 2 weeks in July and I was looking for a gym recommendation for the area.
Thanks a bunch!

It's important to exercise in the morning before your brain figures out what the hell you're actually doing!
