Fitness, Health & Wellness

Whatever your health and wellness goals are, the Y is here to help.

The Y aims to improve our communities’ health and well-being by providing spaces, equipment, programs and classes that promote wellness, reduce risk for disease and help our members and guests reclaim their health. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. The Fitness Centers at both the Ferco and Schlossman YMCAs include Selectorized weight machines, free weights, cardio machines and a stretching area. The Fercho Fitness Center includes a walking track. Members and guests can achieve a complete workout in the Fitness Center at either location — blending strength, endurance and flexibility!

Ages and Guidelines

The Fitness Centers are available for ages 15+. Youth ages 12-14 can earn access into the Fitness Center within arms-length of a parent/guardian, or unsupervised after completing the Y’s FREE Youth Exercise Concepts Course, which consists of a one-hour session with a fitness associate. For a full description of Fitness Center age and facility guidelines, visit our Facility Hours and Guidelines page.
