Fitness Centers

The Fitness Center at each YMCA includes exercise machines, stretching areas, free weights and a weight room. Although specific equipment varies by location, you can achieve a complete workout on the Fitness Center at any Y location—blending flexibility, strength and endurance.

From questions on using the exercise or weight machines to executing squats and lunges with correct form—the Fitness Center staff is ready to help. For every hour the Y is open, a Fitness Center representative is available to help you get the most from your workout. And it’s free with membership!
