Why the Y?
If you want to get healthy in spirit, mind, body and bring about meaningful change for yourself and your community, you have come to the right place. The Y is where families thrive, communities come together and all people can reach their full potential.
YMCA members experience a sense of belonging that can't be found anywhere else! Our network of locations gives our friends and neighbors across Central Ohio many ways to take charge of their health through high-quality programs and services. Join online or at the location nearest you.
Women on Weights
Build strength and relationships at the Y! When you join, you’ll find more than a gym membership, but a community – a place to find your strength inside and out. You’ll find friends, family and a support system to call your own. All of this – while making your community a better place for all.
“We are all supportive of one another. Because of that support it makes you want to come each week.”
Community Strengthening Through STEM Education
Preparing today's youth for the workforce starts incredibly early in life; The YMCA of Central Ohio and Battelle partnered to provide thousands of children in Central Ohio with opportunities to access Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education.
A Place to Belong
The YMCA helped Lenae in ways she never thought possible. After battling cancer, she was very limited in what she could do safely during the pandemic. She found her place to belong at the YMCA through swimming.
