Being a member of the YMCA entitles you to full access to the Gymnasium, Group Fitness Classes as well as the Individual Conditioning strength and conditioning area. Your membership gives you the opportunity to have an orientation session with one of our facility staff to help you get started with a work out regime. Orientations must be booked through the Health & Fitness Department. The strength & conditioning area includes a variety of free weights, plate loaded weight machines, a designated cardio room and a stretching area.
