Programs to enhance your health and well being

At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier, and our wellness programs are designed to help.

Wellness is about being active, making healthy choices, and feeling great in mind, body and spirit. Classes, seminars, and personal training at the YMCA address every angle to get you on the path to a better, healthier you.



A Focus on Mental Health is not New to the YMCA

Mental health is how we think, feel and act. At the Y, we recognize that we ALL have mental health, and mental health is an important part of our physical health and social-emotional well-being, as well as a core component of our identity.
