Fitness Facilities for Families

As we gradually re-emerge from the pandemic, it’s important for people of all ages to continue to be active to help counter the more sedentary routine into which many of us were pushed. But we know that being active can be difficult for adults and children alike. Entering a fitness facility can be intimidating whether it’s your first time or your return after an extended time away. Or the traditional gym experience may not be your preferred way of staying active (and is not necessarily designed for kids).  

What is important to remember is that going to the gym does not have to mean running on a treadmill or “pumping iron”. There are many ways to maintain an active lifestyle while being a part of the fitness community at the YMCA. A wide variety of programs are offered by the 15 Y health and fitness branches across Southwestern Ontario, focused on providing members with a safe and inclusive environment to meet their fitness goals. Our programming is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our dynamic communities.  

Unlike most traditional fitness facilities, the Y welcomes children of all ages. Each day you will find our child members learning the basics of water safety in one of our many pools across the region or learning how to play a new sport in one of our gymnasiums. New children’s and family programming is continuously being introduced as we further enhance the family experience within our community.
