Welcome to the Akron Area YMCA! We're so glad you've joined us. 

Please watch this video before you head to the Y for the first time--there's tons of GREAT information here! 


  • Make sure you have your ID on you for your first visit. We'll get your photo taken for your profile and verify that you're, well, YOU! 
  • If you plan on using our Aquatic Centers, please bring a towel. Our branches no longer offer towel services. 
  • If you plan on storing your belongings in a locker, please bring a lock. Leave those valuables at home--the Y is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items. 
  • Appropriate attire is required for the fitness center. If you're coming in to workout, please leave your jeans at home, wear comfortable athletic wear, and throw on your favorite gym shoes. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to any of our branches. Our front desk staff would be happy to help in any way they can. You can find contact information, branch hours, and directions to all six of our membership branches using the button below.
