A YMCA membership is about more than a healthy body, it’s about a healthy community.  It’s about surrounding yourself with good people who are committed to helping you meet your fitness goals while at the same time committing themselves to doing good work in our community.  We are a network of real face-to-face friends who make you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door.

The Wilkes Barre Family YMCA has a tremendous facility with a fitness gym that is outfitted with the latest and greatest equipment. No matter your workout style or program, you can get it done at the Y. From cross training to cardio and free weights to machines, we have got it all! The gym locker rooms and their perks are outstanding, with saunas, showers, and even jacuzzis. Trust us, you won’t find a better gym in Wilkes-Barre and the surrounding area.

With various membership options, you can come solo or with family, including the kids. We value the kids and them having an active lifestyle so there is always something for them to do at the Y. We don’t only offer weightlifting and fitness gyms, we also have a pool, basketball gym, and much more! Therefore, you don’t have to walk in with your gym bag and then leave after your workout like any normal gym, there is so much more to enjoy with us.
