Let us keep you accountable over the holidays!

Weight management can be a challenge over the holidays, but we are here to help!  Sign up for the Zero Gain Campaign.  

Step 1: Register to participate at the Member Services Desk.  The cost is $10 to participate.  You must be at least 18 years old.
Step 2: Weigh-in at the Wellness Center with a Wellness Coach November 14 – 25.  Do your best to eat healthy and keep your workouts in check to avoid gaining weight over the holidays.  Weigh-out during the week of January 1- 9. 
Step 3: Collect your $25 credit when you weigh-in at or under your starting weight!

Please pardon our dust!

Because our members deserve the very best, we’re updating our men’s and women’s adult locker rooms!  Here’s what you need to know:

  • You may still use the family locker rooms located in the pool hallway. 
  • If you rent a locker, please remove all items by Saturday, November 14.  You will not be charged for your rental during the month-long renovation and we will hold your rental for reopening.

While we understand this is inconvenient for many of our members, we hope that you will find the end result to be worth-while. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 317-881-9347.

Calling all Teen Leaders!

Do you have a teen who wants to impact the community in a positive way? Join the YMCA Teen Leaders program. This club gives teens the opportunity to impact the community through service learning projects, fundraising, volunteering in special events and programs. We also have a little fun too! We take trips to laser tag, the zoo, haunted houses, sky zone, and other trips. We start September 16 so register at the Member Services Desk today!
