How to Become a Member
Celebrating 160 Years
The YMCA is celebrating 160 years in the St. Louis community. To mark this milestone, the Y is sharing stories from our members, like the ones below. Also, if you join the Y before September 30th, you will enjoy no joining fee!
"I survived breast cancer twice before the age of 40. I joined LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a program for cancer survivors and it helped me get stronger, exercise and lose weight. Thank God for the trainers - they really cared and pushed me to get better. The Y taught me to be strong to live long!"
“At 31, I was overweight, had high blood pressure and hyperthyroidism. I heard of the Y’s health and wellness program and checked it out. The result – I now look good, lost weight, feel good, have confidence and am healthier. I especially love the Y because it’s family friendly. And I became a good example to my children on how to live a healthier lifestyle!”
“One evening and 60 lbs. ago, I walked into a ZUMBA class and the rest is history. The instructors are motivational, supportive and encouraging. I’ve made so many friends and feel so much better. I love it here!”
“I used to weigh 296 lbs., and was in danger of developing diabetes and arthritis in my knees. At first, the Y was about having a place for my kids to go, but in the process, I started getting inspired to get healthy and get my life back together.”
“When I joined the Y I was 320 lbs. and very unhealthy. I am now down to 180 and owe it all to the Y because it has so much to offer. It’s like no other gym. I love the people that work at the Y. They seem like family. In many ways, the Y has saved my life and made me a better person.”
“Thanks to an awesome Y coach and experience, Brendan got bit by ‘the sports bug’ at the age of three. The Y’s focus on teamwork, cooperation, and health has given Brendan the right ingredients for how to play sports. I have seen him help other teammates up, teach younger kids, and encourage players who lack confidence. I credit the Y for helping facilitate these attitudes in my son!”
It’s Better Together
Just like our favorite pairings, workouts go better TOGETHER with someone you know! Refer family or
friends to join the Y and you both get a month of membership FREE. Plus, it’s more fun and you keep
each other motivated! And, don’t stop with just one referral – the more people you refer, the more you
