We're on a mission, and it's one fueled by a desire to make your YMCA experience truly extraordinary. At the YMCA of South Hampton Roads, we believe in sprinkling a little extra magic into everything we do, and it all starts with our dedicated team. Our commitment to enhancing your member experience has led us to embark on an exciting journey of professional development and innovation through what we’re calling Y University.

Our team is the heartbeat of our YMCA, and we recognize that investing in their growth is paramount to providing outstanding service to our members, program participants, and the entire community. That's why we've taken our commitment to the next level by revolutionizing our training and onboarding program. We’ve included a strong focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and meeting the needs of all people regardless of their background or unique circumstances. 

This comprehensive approach means that when you walk through our doors, you can count on receiving top-notch service and support from a team that is passionate about your well-being. 

We're not just a gym; we're a community and we're committed to creating a welcoming and supportive environment where you can achieve your wellness goals, connect with your neighbors, and truly experience the magic of the YMCA. Whether you're looking to break a sweat, join a class, or find a supportive community, we're here to make it happen.
