You belong to something greater when you join the Y. It's a place where families come together to spend quality time with each other. Where children and teens play and develop self-confidence, while adults connect with friends, pursue interests and learn how to live healthier. Most importantly, it's a place where people from all backgrounds and walks of life come together to volunteer and help our community become stronger. At the Y, we all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.
NEW Functional Fitness Room
We’re adding a Functional Fitness Room at the Southwest Y! In this space, you will be able to further train your muscles to work together and prepare for easier and safer movement. Functional fitness will stabilize your core by simulating common movements you might already do daily. Functional fitness exercises will make every day activities less strenuous and reduce your risk of injury.
Kids ages 9-12 can now earn access to the gymnasium, running track, cardio rooms, and some group fitness classes through a few easy steps:
- Complete and submit the application included in this brochure to the Welcome Center.
- Attend a Kid Connect orientation with their parent to learn about equipment, wellness spaces, and the Y. (Monday, 10:30am or 6:00pm. Registration required.)
- Sign a pledge/acknowledgement that they will uphold the core values of the YMCA, abide by all expectations, and understand the consequences of their actions.
This FREE program gives your child the opportunity to exercise some independence and healthy living while you are in the building doing the same!
