Unlimited Use of State-of-the-Art Fitness Center - Our fitness center is packed with all the latest cardio and strength training equipment. Whether you prefer running on a treadmill, cycling beside a friend, reading while on an elliptical trainer, lifting free weights or using strength training equipment, you can achieve your goals at the Y.
Free Smart Start Program powered by ActivTrax - To begin this free program you will need to make a free appointment to meet with one of our Wellness Center Coaches. Appointments last anywhere from ten minutes to one hour depending on your fitness goals and how you prefer to exercise while here at the Y. ActivTrax provides members with personalized workout plans and nutrition planning to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
"I've been a member of the Y for about 13 years. I absolutely love it! I always tell everyone that they have the best selection of classes and times I've ever seen at any gym at any location. Whenever we go out of town I try to visit other Y locations. No one even comes close to the schedule, cleanliness, or friendliness (both staff and members). I like that I have the freedom with my membership to go to any Dayton area Y for no additional cost too."
Free Group Exercise Classes - The Y offers more than 500 FREE group exercise classes with your membership. From Zumba to Yoga, Pilates, cycling, step, bootcamp and more, you can find the perfect class at the Y. Classes start early in the morning and run well into the evening for those who need to burn off steam after a long day. View our extensive group exercise schedule on your nearest Branch’s Schedules Page.
Pools & Aquatic Programs - The Y's indoor pool is the perfect place to swim laps, take lessons, or splash around with family and friends. View our pool schedule for the most updated calendar of lap and open swim hours. Certified lifeguards staff our pools, and our swim lessons are taught by trained instructors.
"The YMCA is my home away from home. The fitness classes are excellent, the childcare is fabulous and the staff are like a second family to me. When I went through a battle with cancer 3 years ago, one of the staff sent a card in the mail every Monday for my 4 months of treatment. That is above and beyond!"
Personal Training - Whether you want to lose weight or tone up, prepare for a ski trip or train for an athletic event, YMCA personal training will get you results. Register at the Member Services Desk or fill out a Personal Training Inquiry Form and a Personal Trainer will contact you to set up an appointment.
Wellness Testing & Nutrition Consultations - The YMCA offers wellness testing that gives you a baseline for tracking your progress toward your fitness goals.
Programs - From swim lessons for all ages to sports, dance, martial arts, gymnastics and more, there's something for every interest at the Y. Members receive up to 50% off fee-based classes.
