NOTE: In accordance with Governor Murphy's executive order, the Madison Area YMCA Family Center is currently closed to protect the communities we serve. We are prepared to reopen our Fitness Center to our members once we are permitted to do so.

On-site individualized personal training will resume as of Monday, July 6. For more information or to reserve your personal training appointment, contact Health and Wellness Director Christian Esola.


More than physical activity and healthy eating, YMCA healthy living encompasses a holistic approach to well-being that significantly enhances the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We provide a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for all ages to become healthier and stay well in spirit, mind, and body.
