We're extending Zero Start Up!

Isn't it time you turn over a new leaf?  Yes, it's cliche'.  But, there IS no better time to fall back into fitness.  We've extended the ZERO Start Up (normally $50), added loads of new classes, opened Child Watch and the locker rooms -- plus so much more. 


It's Safe .. We Promise!

If you're a little leery about coming in (or back) to the Y, take a quick peek at the video.  We're ready and waiting to see you!

We know you miss some of the faces you used to see at the Y.  We do too.  That's why we're offering a REWARD for the safe return of missing members -- or the introduction of new ones.

Akron Area YMCA Celebrates a Milestone

2020 marks the 150th year of operation of the Akron Area YMCA.  Since it's beginning, the Akron Area YMCA has been a safe place to land and a strong place to launch for generations.  We had plans to celebrate this milestone with a gala in August 2020, but COVID-19 had other ideas.  Maybe 2021 will give us another reason ... and another year of success ... to commemorate and celebrate. 


There's no better way to learn about the Y than hearing from our Members.  Success in all forms has taken place at our many locations, giving members the hope and conviction to reach their spirit, mind and body goals through the support of our community.  If you know someone who has a great Y story, LET US KNOW!
