The Wellness Center occupies the entire second floor of the YMCA. The space offers a variety of equipment and locations to meet the needs of our members. Our second floor is bright and sunny, with lots of windows. It is an open-concept design that encourages movement throughout the facility.
There is a fully-trained YMCA staff member on duty at all times. This staff member is responsible for ensuring a clean, safe, welcoming space for everyone. The cardio and weight room is available for use whenever the Y is open.
