Member Benefits

Unlimited Membership at 13 YMCAs - The Y's fitness centers are packed with all the latest cardio and strength training equipment. Whether you prefer running on a treadmill, cycling beside a friend, reading while on an elliptical trainer, lifting free weights or using strength training equipment, you can achieve your goals at the Y.

Free Get Started Coaching - New members and those who need a refresher get 2 FREE Get Started sessions with a YMCA Wellness Coach. Our coaches help you establish a workout plan and also teach you how to use the cardio and strength training equipment. We'll also introduce you to group exercise and aquatics options.
