We want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel.  We are proud to participate in the Nationwide Membership Program so that you have the flexibility to use participating [...]

The Y is a leading non profit organization that offers programs, services and initiatives focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, according to the unique needs of the communities it engages.  We’re guided by four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.  

FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming.  The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.  From cradle to career, the Y provides all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life.

FOR HEALTHY
LIVING

Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y goes beyond just working out. In addition to fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength. The result is communities that value and support healthy choices. 

FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential. We are also committed to inspiring a spirit of service by uniting individuals from all walks of life to participate in and work for positive social change. 

The Y.  For a better us.

At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. Members often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. We offer classes for all ages, all levels and all interests. From low-impact exercise and chair classes, stretching and strength training to indoor cycling, water exercise, and yoga, you’ll find a group class that’s fun, supportive and keeps you moving.

Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. We offer swim lessons, family swim, competitive swimming and swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment. What would the Y be without water? Water exercise, adult swim lessons (it’s NEVER too late) and adapted exercise for those with disabilities are some of the water-based activities you’ll find at the Y where we believe if you can do it on land, you can do some version of it in the water!

Children are like sponges – they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. We offer quality full-day and partial-day child care for infants through preschoolers, enabling parents and family members to go to work knowing their children are in safe, stimulating environments.

With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, Y school age programs serve kindergartners through middle schoolers with a variety of programs and activities to explore and develop their interests and talents. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

At the Y, we believe sports and fun go hand in hand. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. That’s why we offer so many sports and activities at the Y. With a game or sport to offer almost everyone, there’s no such thing as being too young or too old to get in the game.

Summer Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camp teaches a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership, while giving children the opportunity to create lasting friendships.

We’re More Than A Gym. We’re A Cause.
