YWCA Provides Co-Ed Fitness Choices
At Charlotte’s YWCA, we have amazing on-site fitness facilities available to our members. Design a personal fitness program combining workouts in any of the intimate gyms and indoor pool or join one of the 50+ group exercise classes on our monthly schedule.
We have everything you need, no matter your fitness level. From yoga and cycling, to boot camps and aquatics classes. We boast knowledgeable and certified instructors, friendly staff and competitive rates. You can learn more about everything we offer in our Fitness Catalog.
Looking for a weightloss program? Our certified instructors and various group exercise classes will help you create a routine that you won’t grow tired of. See the impacts of exercise when it comes to losing weight.
We have treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent bikes, upright bikes and rowing machines as well as space for comfortable stretching before and after you work out.
Our weight gym is equipped with free weights and cable machines. Every month we have complimentary orientations for new and existing members.
Our heated indoor pool is a member favorite. The temperature ranges between 85-87 degrees. The pool is 3 feet deep in the shallow end and 9 feet deep in the deep end. There are at least two designated lap lanes at all times even during group classes and swim lessons.
Yoga mats and props are available for use, free of charge, but members are welcome to bring their own. When classes are not in session, members have access to our DVD Workout Library and can use this dynamic space for individual workouts including yoga, Pilates, cardio, strength training and more.
Renovated Locker Rooms
Our newly renovated locker rooms are energy-efficient, have accessible showers and restrooms, dry saunas, great ventilation, bright lighting and private changing spaces. We also offer 2 large special needs locker rooms for wheel chair access and family use (with diaper changing stations.)
In our newly renovated locker rooms are dry saunas which provide the perfect space for you to relax before or after your workout. Dry saunas have been proven to improve cardiovascular health and respiratory function, promote pain relief, improve immunity, decrease stress, and assist in weight loss. Sweat it out and leave relaxed.
We provide free child care for children 6 months – 12 years old as part of all Family Memberships. For other members and guests, the fee is $5 per child for two hours or $35 for a 10 visit punch card.

**We have been pleased to offer an additional 12noon-1pm hour in childcare since September, but due to low to no usage during this time, we will remove this hour from the schedule as of 11/29. As the summer nears, we will revisit whether this additional childcare hour can be offered. We will continue offering the Saturday 9am – 12pm childcare hours.**
