Healthy Living

fitness-family2At the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina, we believe that being healthy involves more than just being physically active. It also means ensuring that your whole being—mind, body and spirit—is healthy and balanced. We offer programs to help you develop a healthy and wholesome outlook through athletic programs, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.


The YMCA has always been centered on serving families. We offer activities and events that bring families together in a happy and healthy environment.

Health, Well-Being & Fitness

Healthy lifestyles are achieved by nurturing the mind, body and spirit. Therefore, in addition to our workout facilities and fitness classes, we offer a variety of programs for all ages that promote healthy decisions and support physical, intellectual and spiritual growth.

Sports and Recreation

We love sports! We believe they offer an opportunity to have fun while developing new skills. They improve health, promote teamwork and offer time to socialize with others. As a result, we offer a variety of options for all ages, from pre-school to adults. You’re never too old to have fun!

Social Fun through Group Activities

For those that are new to the community or those who just want to meet new people, the Y brings people together. You can learn to eat healthier, improve your athletic ability, or join one of our other classes and meet people who share your interests.
