WELLNESS CENTER

The Y makes it easy to workout and remain safe! 

Wellness Center (Gym)

Locker rooms are now open! While inside of the Y, masks must be worn at common area such as: locker rooms, bath rooms, and hallways.  However, mask/face coverings will be optional while using the YMCA Wellness Center or workout areas for fully vaccinated members.

Unvaccinated members over the age of 2, continue to wear a mask/face covering in accordance with the State and CDC guidelines, unless wearing a mask would endanger one’s health, such as during swim lessons.

Members who do not feel comfortable being mask free for any reason should continue to wear a mask or face covering.  Please be respectful of everyone’s choice at this time. All members must wash or sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the facility.
