The YMCA has created the Partners In Health group membership program because national statistics reveal that employees who embrace a healthy lifestyle have higher morale and lower stress, creating an increase in productivity. In addition, companies save money through lower absenteeism and subsequent healthcare costs due to happier, healthier employees having access to an environment promoting wellness, such as the Y.
Through a YMCA of South Hampton Roads Partners In Health group membership, your workforce has access to resources for increased physical activity, improved overall health, education and friendships with full YMCA membership benefits.

- For five employees who join at one time, the Y will waive the joining fee.
