Membership Overview

When you become a Y member, you’re joining a supportive community.

Working together to complete your wellness goals suddenly makes them much more attainable. No matter your goals, fitness level, age, or interest, a Y membership can help you be your best.

If you’re looking for extra encouragement or added variety to your workout, try joining a group fitness class. We offer over 400 free classes, which are exclusive to our members. Our professional instructors are your own personal fitness mentors. We even offer free, on-going fitness coaching to assist the journey to a healthier you. You could say that with every Y membership, motivation and encouragement come standard.

With membership at the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids, you have access to all our locations. Stop by and visit one of our branch locations and talk to our expert staff about becoming a member or join online today.

FLEXIBLE PRICING

The Y is a mission-driven, nonprofit organization that strives to serve all. We believe that opening doors can close gaps. That’s why we welcome everyone to participate in our programs and services. To ensure this, we customize our rates based on your household income and size. If your annual income is under $65,000, we offer rate adjustments to make the Y more affordable to all. Membership Applications are available at any location or click here. To process your application, a copy of your Federal tax return is required.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE – EVERYONE IS WELCOME AT THE Y

Through the generosity of donors, we are able to provide programs and services to those who may not otherwise be able to participate. If your financial situation is more complex than our flexible income based pricing allows, you may apply for financial assistance. Confidential financial assistance applications are available at any location. All Y members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of assistance.

Stop by the front desk at the branch nearest you. To process the application we will also need the following information:

  • Copy of last year’s Federal tax return (required)
  • Two current copies of pay stub or copy of social security or disability check
