Focus On Allover Wellness at the Y

Reopening Indoor Wellness Facilities Sept. 8 at 5:30AM for all members!

We know wellness involves more than working out. It's about making good choices to live well inside and out. You’re not only supported by our staff, but you’re also part of a community that helps you be your best self at every age.

Whether you’re looking to lose weight, get stronger, eat healthier, fight disease, improve your energy or lower stress, we have people and programs in place to help.

For more than 130 years, the Y has served as a nonprofit leader and partner in community health, delivering evidence-based health programs and interventions that benefit vulnerable populations and those managing the life-altering effects of chronic disease. 

During the pandemic, NC YMCAs have partnered with health experts and developed operational plans that meet or exceed requirements and recommendations of the CDC and NC DHHS. Therefore, we are confident in our YMCA's capacity to open our indoor fitness centers safely. For so many in our community, exercise therapy is a key to recovery, disease management and prevention. 

Following the all guidelines provided by the NC DHHS, access to facilities is limited to 30% capacity for each space. Areas and offerings may be limited. 

If you aren't ready to join us in person, visit the Virtual Y or our Facebook page for online class options.
