When you join the Y, you're gaining more than access to our fitness facilities, weight rooms, basketball courts, group exercise and Zumba classes. The Y is more than a gym. The Y is a movement.
At the Y, we believe healthy families make healthy communities.That's why we're committed to providing a space for you and your family to become healthy in spirit, mind, and body.
Each Y branch offers group exercise classes, team sports for all ages, youth fitness classes, summer day camps, state of the art fitness equipment and teen leadership programs.
Have a young family? We know how difficult it can be to find time for yourself to exercise. Most branches provide child care so our members can go for a jog, hit the weights, swim laps, or stretch in a yoga class. All of our programs are designed to help you build new relationships, strengthen family bonds and lead to a healthier lifestyle.
To join, just visit the Y of your choice and get signed up at the front desk!

Through the Corporate Wellness Program, if your employer is a Corporate Member, when you join the YMCA of Greenville, we waive the joining fee. If your company has 50 or more employees signed up with Y memberships, then all of those members get a 10 to 20 percent discount on monthly fees.
Corporate Wellness programs are good for business. They have been proven to lower insurance costs for employers as well as improve productivity among workers. And people who get regular exercise are less likely to need sick days and will be less stressed.
Corporate Y members will enjoy including free exercise classes and reduced pricing for childcare, personal coaching, swim classes, and youth sports. Whether you are interested in cardiovascular exercise, weight training, lap swimming, aerobic classes or participating in a sports team, we're here for you.
