Once a year, we may close a local Y for Facility Improvement Week, a week full of projects like deep cleaning, painting, making repairs, and adding furniture. 

    July 2022

    University Family YMCA: Closed Sunday, July 3 - Sunday, July 10. Reopens on Monday, July 11.


    Our Projects

    What's going on when the University Y is closed? We'll be hard at work on: 

    Increasing accessibility to fitness equipment

    We are moving fitness equipment from the lower level to the main floor to provide more accessibility for all abilities. 

    Refreshing group exercise rooms 

    We are transforming the basement space into a multipurpose area for group exercise classes and future programs like personal training, Total Body Resistance Exercise (TRX), and youth programs. We will hold more cycling, high intensity interval training (HIIT), and strength and conditioning classes.  

    We are installing new flooring in the Pocock Room that is responsive to high impact and low impact group exercise classes, as well as adding a fresh coat of paint. Our goal is to expand active older adult, yoga, and dance format classes.  

    Fresh paint 

    Members will see fresh paint in the lobby, hallways, and all gender bathrooms.
