At the Y, individuals walk in searching for something specific, but stay for something unexpected. Something intangible. 

Belonging. A byproduct of finding something you love doing in a space where everyone is welcome, where showing up as yourself is always encouraged. 

A feeling that makes places, and people, feel like home. 

At the Y, there is something for everyone to feel like they belong. Because we know that belonging fosters welcoming people, grows stronger communities, and creates a better world.

At the YMCA you are not just a member; you’re part of our family. To ensure the safety and comfort for all, we have prepared policies and guidelines to make your experience as pleasant and rewarding as possible. We go to great lengths to outline all rules and policies to ensure the comfort and safety of you, your family and other members. Because it is impossible to foresee or communicate every situation that may arise, we reserve the right to amend or add a policy/operating rule to ensure the safety and comfort of all. We understand that consistency among our branches is a cornerstone of our business practice and want you to be met with the same guidelines, regardless of which Y location you visit. However, due to varying facility designs, space, and amenities, from time to time, you may see a variation to a rule or policy between centers. Please ask if you have any questions. For more information on our policies and waivers please visit our Policies & Waivers page or stop at our Front Desk for a copy of our Membership Pricing & Policies Brochure.

This one FREE Fitness Orientation is an information session that takes about 45-minutes where a personal trainer or fitness professional will provide you the basics of how to use the weight machines and cardio equipment in our facilities. 

You will also learn some basic knowledge on helping you reach your fitness goals and the benefits of working with a personal trainer as well as review training options moving forward.
