Group Exercise Classes

With your membership, you can choose from hundreds of exercise classes for beginners up to the fitness enthusiast.  Our Ys offer traditional aerobics, yoga, pilates, spin and many other group exercise classes, including ZUMBA® and BODYPUMP, all taught in a fun, welcoming environment. In addition to the group exercise classes, our trained wellness staff can help design a fitness program that meets your individual needs.

Family Friendly Programs

Members receive special rates on Afterschool, day camp, sports and other programs for children and families.

Strength and Cardio Equipment

Each Y has a variety of strength and cardio equipment for members.  Whether you prefer running on a treadmill, cycling beside a friend, reading while on an elliptical trainer, lifting free weights or using strength training equipment, you can do it at the YMCA.

Quality Child Care

We provide quality child care in our ChildWatch and Kids’ Club while you’re working out or participating in other Y activities for up to two hours per day with a family membership. (not available at Downtown YMCA)

Swimming and Water Activities

All of our facilities have year-round indoor pools and many have outdoor seasonal pools.  There’s time for recreational swim and water aerobic activities.  Certified lifeguards staff our pools, and our swim lessons are taught by trained instructors.

Open Y

Our YMCA is a membership organization open to all people.  The YMCA welcomes women and men, girls and boys of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities and financial circumstances.  Programs and branches embrace diversity, reflecting the needs and composition of our community.

Financial assistance is available for qualified members funded by our Annual Campaign. We are community based and believe that our programs should be available for everyone. Stop by the member services desk to fill out a financial assistance application or download it below.
