Making it easier for you to join the Y: Join Fees waived through Oct. 31st!
Working to keep you and your family safe and healthy
At the Y, everything we do is guided by our cause to strengthen communities, and we are taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of our members, staff and community. Social distancing measures, mask-wearing policies and enhanced cleaning procedures have been implemented. Check out what's new at the Y, below.
Take advantage of this limited time $0 Join Fee offer. The Y is a nonprofit organization open to all, and we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to build a healthy spirit, mind and body. If you're unable to resume your membership due to a financial hardship caused by COVID-19, please contact us to discuss financial assistance opportunities.
Sanitizing surfaces between uses, deep cleaning at the end of each day, and electrostatic spraying are just a few ways we're keeping your Y clean and safe.
Group Exercise Classes
Our current schedule has nearly 100 classes between our two Wellness Centers, including LES MILLS™, SilverSneakers®, Zumba® - and more!
Swimming & Aquatics
The pool at Jim & Heather Gills YMCA is open for lap swimming, independent water exercise, and family free swim. Plus, swim lessons are open for registration!
We're actively promoting social distancing by spacing out equipment, placing markers on the floors in waiting areas, and holding group classes in large spaces.
In an effort to monitor attendance levels and ensure there's plenty of room for social distancing, some services require a reservation.
We're excited to offer hundreds of virtual workouts, with many of our health programs offered virtually including our YMCA Weight Loss Program.
Masks are required in all common areas. They may be removed while using equipment, during group exercise classes, while using the pool or for children in Kid Zone.
One-on-one personal training is now available at both Wellness Centers. Call your home branch directly for more information on pricing, enrollment and scheduling.
Kid Zone is open
Kid Zone is open with regular disinfecting, and multiple areas set up to encourage social distancing. Select equipment and toys have been removed to prevent the spread of germs.
For the Health of Our Community
At our core, the YMCA is about bringing people together. While the COVID-19 pandemic has created the need for social distancing, we remain determined as ever to ensure we can still foster relationships and keep our community connected.
This past spring, we redirected some of our resources to provide affordable childcare to more than 298 children of essential workers in 32 industries. We also called 4,667 seniors to see how they were coping with this time of isolation. And, we partnered with other organizations like the St. Petersburg Free Clinic to distribute food to 685 households and with Oneblood to host multiple blood drives.
We are better together, and we will get through this together.
