DID YOU KNOW? You joined the Y to improve your health, right? Did you realize that by doing so, you've helped to build a healthier community? We’ve also learned that the sooner you get started after you take out your membership, the better your chances of sticking with your exercise program and gaining all the benefits. So don’t delay! Call us or introduce yourself to our fitness staff if you want some help to get started.
TAKE A TOUR - A Y staff member will take you on a tour of the facility, help to educate you on what the Y is, share with you the array of membership options, and answer any questions you may have. To take a tour, just stop by the Member Service Desk anytime. It's conveniently located just inside the main Park Street entrance. For doing so, you will receive a one week pass to try the Y So... why not?
