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, cycle, and many other group exercise classes, including barre, kettlebells, 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.

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. Our wellness centers have individual TV monitors on cardio equipment.

Swimming and Water Activities

Many of our facilities have year-round indoor pools with time for recreational swim and water aerobic activities. Certified lifeguards staff our pools, and our swim lessons are taught by trained instructors.

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)

Special Rates on Family-Friendly Programs

As an added benefit, members receive special rates on afterschool, camps, youth sports, swim lessons, personal training and more.

Community-wide Memberships

All family memberships and individual community-wide memberships include access to all five YMCA of Columbia locations. Our membership is month-to-month, so you’re not locked into lengthy contracts. View cancellation policy

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.
