JOIN THE Y AND EXPERIENCE MORE THAN A​ GYM.

Discover a community committed to helping you reach your full potential

The Y is more than a fitness center. More than a pool. More than a meeting space. We are a supportive community inspiring people of all ages, abilities and incomes to live healthier in mind, body and spirit. At the Y, we don't just provide programs and services, we transform lives.

Experience the Y difference 

The Y is unlike any other fitness center around — it’s so much more! 
  • We’re not just a building — we’re an inclusive, encouraging community with membership access to 19 branches around Charlotte, each with unique features, classes and programs 
  • More than 300 group exercise classes are taught across all our branches every week — from paddleboard yoga to cardio strength classes for seniors
  • Find friendly competition and camaraderie with adult sports and recreation leagues 
  • We have more pools and waterparks than anyone in Charlotte, including lakefront access decked out with paddleboards, canoes and waterslides 
  • We’re committed to developing the potential in every child and teen with inspiring youth programs — from visual and performing arts to sports and academic programs
  • Members receive benefits like childcare, nutrition, personal training and discounts on programs
  • We never charge a fee to join because we believe our services (not a contract) will keep you around — and we adjust our rates to your income to ensure the Y available and affordable for all
