Make the most out of your time and reserve your spot at the Y today! Reservations are required for use of the Wellness Center. All of which, can be completed on our website. Y Members will be admitted at a first-come-first-served basis.
The Wellness Center will open July 2nd, 2020. Starting July 2nd, only one member or one family group will be permitted to use the Wellness Center at a time for a maximum of one hour. Reservations begin 7:30AM, with the final one starting at 6:00PM and ending at 7:00PM.
Come to the Y dressed and prepared as locker rooms are closed at this time. Masks must be worn upon entering and exiting the facility. All members must wash or sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the facility. All members will undergo temperature checks and must sign waivers before gaining entrance into the facility.
If you have any further questions, please contact Y Director Luis Ramos via e-mail at LRamos@raritanvalleyymca.org.
Welcome back! Due to capacity limitations during this phase of reopening, reservations are required for group fitness classes.Signed waivers and temperature checks will be required before the start of class.
Group fitness classes begin June 29th, 2020. Classes will include: H.I.I.T, Zumba, Silver Sneakers, Y Warrior (boot camp) and more! Click on any date to see which classes we have available!
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. Members and program participants often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. You may be a highly trained athlete, or just someone looking to live a healthier life. Maybe you have doubts about your fitness knowledge. It doesn't matter to us. We're here for you, and we'll help you move forward!
If you'd like full access to the Wellness Center, check out our Wellness Memberships on the membership page. (Note that "Program Memberships" are used for participation in other programs, and do not usually include fitness center access.) Remember that all group exercise classes are included with your Wellness Membership at no extra charge!
Our state of the art wellness and fitness center includes over 3000 square feet of space featuring strength and cardio equipment for all adult age groups. Staff supervisors can provide the direction and encouragement needed to get you fit! (Don't forget to ask about personal training sessions.)
Work out on 15 stations of CYBEX weight machines, treadmills (with personal televisions), elliptical trainers, recumbent and upright bicycles & rowers. Free weight selection includes dumbbells, barbells, and exercise balls, stretch bands.
NOTE: reciprocity temporarily unavailable during re-opening.
As part of the NJ YMCA Alliance members of our YMCA may use nearly any YMCA statewide when on the go. And, as part of a reciprocity agreement between the Raritan Valley YMCA, the Metuchen-Edison YMCA, the South Amboy Branch YMCA, the Old Bridge YMCA and the Raritan Bay YMCA (Perth Amboy), our members may use these other facilities at any time for free (including swimming pool access)! When visiting these YMCAs, call ahead to make sure the host Y can verify your membership beforehand. (Note: you must use your home YMCA more often than any other Y.)
Medicare-eligible members and group retirees may have their memberships covered by the SilverSneakers program! Other insurance plans may also be accepted. Check with your health insurance company to see what type of reimbursement that you may be eligible for.
