As we continue our gradual and safe reopening, you can be certain your health and safety is our top priority. Working out at the gym will feel a little different, but we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming experience. We appreciate your help and understanding as we work through this time together.
Update: Beginning February 1, you will no longer be required to make a workout block reservation at YWCA Downtown or YWCA Uptown. Both facilities will be open for drop-in fitness access during operating hours. You will still need to make a reservation to swim or attend a group fitness or YWCA Live! virtual classes at these two locations.
YWCA Midtown will still require a workout, lap swim and fitness class reservation.
We are offering many services, both virtually and in person. Below are the services we are currently offering. Stay tuned, as we will continue to reopen areas and services when it is safe to do so.
We are continuing to reopen our facilities taking into account local, state and federal guidelines. To prioritize the health and safety of our members and staff, we have put new protocols in place to increase cleaning and maintain social distancing. We have also made changes to our hours, classes and services.
Our facilities will have shorter operating hours to allow us extra time to sanitize everything properly. See updated hours.
The following services are temporarily suspended. We will carefully evaluate when to resume these services in alignment with governmental orders and guidelines.
Locker rooms are open with limited use at YWCA Midtown and YWCA Downtown. There are limitations on day-use locker availability; please check capacity signage within locker rooms. Towel service is not available. Hair and hand dryers are not available. Locker rooms at YWCA Uptown are available for swimmers only.
Both Swim PODS and Gym PODS are now open. Learn more about our POD Activities and how to reserve a spot, along with our updated policies.
The track is open at YWCA Midtown and YWCA Uptown. A workout reservation is required to enter the facility and use the track at YWCA Midtown.
YWCA Midtown Track Hours:
Uptown Track Hours: during open hours
Our approach to limited pool hours allows our team the time needed to prepare, clean and reset to ensure a positive member experience. Pool entrances differ by location, and members will exit through the locker rooms. To allow our staff to disinfect and sanitize between each swim block, please be prepared to exit the facility at the end of your swim block. Swim block reservations are required at the Downtown, Midtown and Uptown locations. Please reserve your swim block in advance of arrival. Swim reservations may be made in advance up to three days prior. Please limit your reservations to one swim block per day and no more than three swim blocks per week. For your comfort, we recommend arriving with your swimsuit on, as day lockers will not be available at some of the sites.
Some other details:
We follow the CDC’s guidelines with regular deep cleanings of the facility and our team wipes down all high-touch surfaces throughout the day with disinfectant. We practice social distancing by reducing the number of people in the facility through shifts and dividing breaks across teams. We maintain six feet between workstations at all times. We conduct daily employee health screenings. Employees who are sick or feeling ill are required to stay home.
For the health and safety of our community, access to the fitness floor is limited to members ages 15 years or older.
We are not allowing guest access at this time.
