We welcome people of all ages, all stages, and all walks of life with a smile. This welcome extends to programs designed for a diverse range of abilities, needs and interests. But being part of the Y doesn't just support your own spirit, mind and body. It gives back to our community, helping people reach their potential and thrive. Discover our membership options.

Health, Fitness & Aquatics

When you choose a home branch, you can access all Winnipeg branches, plus participating YMCAs worldwide. Enjoy top-of-the-line equipment in our fitness centres, from TRX® and SPIVI® Cycle Studios to our exclusive EGYM® Smart Circuit.* Find cardio and resistance equipment, free weights, running tracks and full gymnasiums. At our aquatic centres, you'll find aqua fitness, lane swim, recreational swim and member-only swimming lessons (for an added fee). Take part in group fitness classes and sports, including basketball and badminton. Check out our branch schedules to find activities near you. It's all part of your membership.

Welcoming Families

Family memberships make joining affordable, even for large families. Fun activities, including Preschool Playtime, Family Fun TIme, Kids Corner and recreational swim, plus features such as our play structures and waterslides* make visits great for young ones! Kids as young as 9 who’ve had a Youth Fitness Orientation with a parent may use the fitness centre with that parent. Additional children's programs are available seasonally. All members 13+ may enjoy the full use of both fitness and aquatic centres.
