Our large-scale gym at the Madison Area YMCA is for everybody. From teens who are just beginning their fitness journeys to seniors who are looking to rediscover their passion for fitness, the YMCA’s new state-of-the-art facilities is the perfect place to start.

The Madison Area YMCA is now home to both EGYM, an effective, user-friendly circuit system as well as free-reign Life Fitness Selectorized Equipment. The unique and diverse range of equipment we now offer provides unlimited possibilities and is accessible by anyone, regardless of age and ability.

Onboarded EGYM members will now be able to receive personalized training through EGYM’s data-driven system. With just a 20-minute circuit workout, this new system tracks and logs fitness progress and provides detailed recommendations to increase machine weightage or intensity, constantly pushing users to reach their fitness goals.

In addition to EGYM, the Sprint 8 program has been shown to improve cardiovascular endurance and enhance overall fitness in everyone from young adults to active older adults using traditional cardio equipment. Brand-new Life Fitness modern Selectorized equipment also provides the most approachable and non-intimidating resistance training option for all members, expert or novice, to optimize biomechanics. 

We cannot wait for all our members to begin enjoying the benefits that come with our new upgraded fitness equipment. Start your EGYM journey today by contacting the Fitness Center Desk to schedule your onboarding!
