build more than muscle
The YMCA brings people closer together like no other organization can. The Y has always been more than a fitness center — in fact, we are the nation’s leading provider of child care and purveyor of hundreds of youth development and health programs. Committed to building stronger and connected communities, our mission-driven staff is dedicated to helping you meet your goals in a safe and supportive environment.
At the Y, every member can participate in KickStart, a month-long program of personalized support from one of our professionally trained Wellness Coaches.
In this program, members receive 3 one-on-one sessions throughout the month designed to set
goals and create a customized plan for achievement.

Nakita shares:The Y’s military discount — the Y is a
great place for military families to stay
active because there are family amenities
to keep everyone involved.
“At Toby Wells, I was able to lose 55 lbs. from November 2012 to May 2014 and I have actually kept it off. I would never have been able to achieve that without the
perks from the Y. I would work out while my older son was in gymnastics. As he got better and his classes got longer, I continued to increase my workouts. It was
amazing to have a way to keep us all busy while I got healthy!”
Gymnastics — because gymnastics at the Y is “the best in town!”
