At the Y, we’re dedicated to improving
our community

The Y is so much more than just a gym. We’re a community committed to changing lives. Whatever your reason for joining, we’ll help to give you the motivation and guidance you need to reach your fitness goals and nurture your well-being. Plus, you’ll be part of a movement dedicated to enhancing youth development, encouraging healthy living, and putting social responsibility at the top of the list.group_people_edit3

The YMCA is a not-for-profit organization actively working to make our community a better place. Whether it’s as simple as offering state-of-the art fitness options, or addressing more complex social issues, we are directly involved in our community to make a positive impact. Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

With 11 locations throughout the Memphis and Mid-South area, and a diverse range of activities for young, old—and everyone in between—the Y might just be what you’ve been looking for!

We’re Open To All

We want all people to be involved with the programs and services of the Y that nurture spirit, mind and body. We feel strongly that our programs can make a strong impact in people’s lives and therefore proudly offer Open Doors need-based fee assistance. Learn More about Open Doors>
