Health & Wellness

YWCA seeks to improve the lives of women and girls by providing high-quality health and wellness programs that are too often not available to disadvantaged and marginalized communities of color. Programs and services are designed to address health inequities and members are able to customize fitness options that work for each individual’s lifestyle and fitness goals.

YWCA Central Massachusetts’ Health and Wellness Center provides members with positive wellness services that are consistent with YWCA’s core beliefs. Our full-service facility provides a fitness center equipped with treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical machines, stair climbers, rowing machines, weight-training machines, free weights, and more; personalized and group fitness classes such as yoga, indoor cycling, cross-training, and more; a 5-lane, 25-yard indoor lap pool; locker rooms; steam room; a family changing area; and free parking in a central downtown location.
