Benefits

The Y has so many opportunities to help you get healthy and stay connected.  Here are just a few member benefits.

My Y is Every Y Membership Reciprocity

At the Y, we encourage members to live healthier and use the Y as much as possible. YMCA of Roanoke Valley members can access any facility across Virginia and now North Carolina. Learn more here.

FREE Group Exercise Classes

With your membership, you can choose from hundreds of exercise classes for beginners up to the fitness enthusiast. Our Ys offer traditional aerobics, yoga, pilates, cycle and many other group exercise classes, including ZUMBA® and BODYPUMP™, all taught in a fun, welcoming environment. In addition to the group exercise classes, our trained wellness staff can help design a fitness program that meets your individual needs.

Youth Programs

There's something for every kid at the Y. They can meet new friends, build skills, develop interests and try new things in a supportive environment with caring adults. Our programs emphasize values, sportsmanship, friendship and most of all, fun!

Family Friendly Programs

Family fun doesn't have to break the bank. Join us for free play time in our family-friendly pools, in the Y-Arcade and on our inflatable obstacle courses. Members also receive discounts on Magic Place afterschool care, day camp, sports and other programs for children and families.

Strength and Cardio Equipment

Each Y has a variety of strength and cardio equipment for members. Whether you prefer running on a treadmill, cycling beside a friend, reading while on an elliptical trainer, lifting free weights or using strength training equipment, you can do it at the YMCA.

Quality Child Care

We provide quality child care in our Child Watch while you're working out or participating in other Y activities for up to two hours per day with a household membership. If you're looking for longer afterschool care, we offer that too. Check out the Y After School/Y Summer Camp for elementary afterschool care and Y Pass for afterschool care for Andrew Lewis middle schoolers.

Swimming and Water Activities

All of our facilities have year-round indoor pools that offer recreational swim and water aerobic activities. Certified lifeguards staff our pools, and our swim lessons are taught by trained instructors.

A Part of Our Family

Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and at the Y, we consider you part of our family. Whether it’s an extra special greeting on your birthday or special rates on all Y programs and services, you'll feel right at home at the YMCA.
