Fitness Center Policies
Individuals must be 13 or older to be in the Fitness Center area. Individuals 11 & 12 may complete the Fitness Center Orientation, to have access to the Fitness Center but must be supervised at all times while in the area.
Fitness Center Orientations
At the YMCA, it is important that all members feel safe and comfortable while utilizing the equipment and services in our facilities. An Fitness Center Orientation can help you begin your wellness journey by offering you a step-by-step guide on how to use the equipment in the Fitness Center. YMCA Welcome Center Staff is available to answer your questions and help you determine correct weight and resistance on the machines.
To schedule an Equipment Orientation, please place your request with the Membership Desk we will match you with a Wellness Staff member to assist you.
