Healthy Living

The YMCA of Greater Boston brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests.

The personal satisfaction and joy that comes as the result of hard work and determination happens daily at the YMCA. Whether it is a child conquering her fear of the water, a widower taking the first step to socializing again or a family committing to a healthier way of life, the Y is open and ready for anyone in the community. Our team of dedicated employees and seasoned Y members are ready with expert instructions, encouraging words or a gentle nudge. Whether it is a member’s first day or 50th year, each has a story to tell about how the Y makes a difference to them.

Health, Well-Being & Fitness

Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, the Y is so much more than just working out.

Sports & Recreation

We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren’t just for the young. Along with improving health, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others.

Family Time

Family time at the Y is about giving families the opportunities to deepen relationships, develop new skills and interests, improve their health and well-being, and connect to the community.

Community Education & Lifeguarding

Whether you’re new to the community or simply want to pursue a new hobby, the Y brings together people who love to learn.
