FamilyFit - ALL

Ages 7 to 17 years

All members ages 7 to 17 who are interested in working out at the Mission Valley YMCAs must complete the designated orientation(s) prior to receiving Fitness Center access. Upon orientation completion members will be walked to the Welcome Desk to receive their Y ID Badge and be documented within the system. For future workouts, upon arrival and card scan, the members age 7-12 will receive a daily wristband for safety identification that must be worn visibly at all times while visiting the branches.

Family Orientation - Ages 7 - 12

  • Following the completion of the Family Orientation, members will have access to use the all cardio equipment and Y-Express circuit machines. They will also be educated in performing body weight exercises.
  • Since it is a family affair, parents or guardians must attend the orientation and work out with their youth in future visits. Members must pass a test and have parent consent at the end of the orientation, prior to facility access.
  • Family Orientation wristbands are orange and will be issued at the Welcome Center.

Teen Orientation - Ages 13 - 17

  • Following the completion of the Teen Orientation, members will have access to use all the cardio machines and all strength machines (Y-Express and Life Fitness Selectorized).
