Membership Benefits


There’s a unique combination at the Y. It’s a place where generations gather together. Seniors socialize alongside toddlers splashing and learning new skills. Group Exercise classes, offered six days a week, are included in your YMCA membership. The Y welcomes all fitness levels to attend a variety of classes. Highly trained, certified instructors will lead you through well-planned workouts designed to strengthen member connection and overall healthy living. Currently, the YMCA offers four Les Mills programs, including: BodyCombat, BodyPump, BodyStep and RPM. Ballet barre workouts, various genres of yoga, Pilates, rowing and aqua fitness are also included in our array of group fitness classes.
Join the Y and experience the difference.

Your Y is Every Y

The Y movement is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace or in another region.

Away Program (Always Welcome at YMCAs)

“Always Welcome At the YMCA,” or the “AWAY” program, is a membership benefit that allows facility usage at participating YMCAs around the United States when you become a member of a nationwide association.
At the YMCA of South Alabama, AWAY members may use any of the five Mobile and Baldwin county branches up to twelve visits per year. Once this limit is exceeded, AWAY program participants will be charged a $5 per visit guest fee. If you plan to visit another YMCA, please call the specific branch, as AWAY participation is voluntary and some restrictions may apply. You may also visit and conduct a “Find Your YMCA” search for more information.

FREE MicroFit Consultation

Let our trained fitness staff educate you with a “Microfit” appointment and equipment orientation. We offer a variety of high-quality Core Health And Fitness equipment, designed to help you achieve cardiovascular and strength training healthy living goals.
