Joining the YMCA

When you join the Y, you join more than a fitness center, a place to swim or a space to meet. You are part of a supportive community that inspires people of all ages, abilities and incomes to live healthier in mind, body and spirit. The Y is not just about providing programs and services, it is a movement to transform lives and help individuals and families reach their full potential.

No Joining Fee or long-term contract – We believe our services (not a contract) will keep you around.  

For more information about currently available programs and services or to prepare for your visit, please see our Reopening Information.
