What's Shiny, New & Just for You?

13 October 2017

New Cardio & Strength Equipment is coming to your YMCA this November! 

This past spring, we asked, and then we listened. We sent out email surveys, met with members and YMCA staff at each location, and observed use patterns to make sure that we provide the fitness equipment that delivers what you want.

As part of our commitment to healthy living, we upgrade and replace cardio and strength equipment every three years. We're the only organization in the area to make this commitment to bringing the newest and best equipment to help you achieve your fitness goals. This year, with nearly 800 pieces of new equipment to deliver and install, it will take more than 10 tractor-trailer trucks, 10 days and countless hours of heavy lifting! We hope that you enjoy this new equipment and that it helps you finish 2017 on a healthy note, and carry your healthy successes and goals well into 2018!


While equipment is being installed, the Y will close for your safety, but we will still provide before & after-school child care as usual.

Please contact your family center on the day(s) of installation for any updates on reopening time.
