Healthy Living

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active; it’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. Here at the YMCA of Columbia, you’ll find a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.

Family Time

Serving families has always been at the heart of our organization. We are a place where they can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them.

Health, Well-Being & Fitness

Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness includes more than just working out. In addition to our physical fitness classes and facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions and support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.

Sports & Recreation

We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren’t just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. With something to offer everyone, there’s no such thing as being too old to get in the game.

Group Interest

Whether you’re new to the community or simply want to pursue a new hobby, the Y brings people together who love to learn. Whether you want to learn to eat healthier, join a bible study, create pottery or speak a new language, we offer many great opportunities learn alongside others from your community who share your interests.
