Change Your Community, Change Your Life

With opportunities to give back, improve your health and make connections, the benefits of membership are far-reaching. When you join the Y, you’ll discover new ways to connect with your potential, purpose, and community. No matter where you are on your journey, the Y is where you can be, belong and become. Join us.
Opportunities for All
The Y welcomes everyone, which is why our programs, services and initiatives are so wide ranging. We inspire kids to realize their potential, prepare teens for college and career, provide opportunities for families to bond and support people of all ages and backgrounds to be healthier in spirit, mind and body. And that’s just the beginning.
Group Exercise Programs
Y Group Exercise Programs bring together health-seekers of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels in a fun, supportive environment where they move, groove and sweat their way toward better well-being.
Group exercise—including strength and conditioning, spin, yoga, tai chi classes and more—is one of many ways the Y supports members in achieving their health and wellness goals. Highly trained staff develop and lead the programs and often tailor them to the specific needs of their community.
Volunteering at the Y helps your neighbors and your community. By sharing your time, talent, skills and support, you give yourself the gift of giving back.
