YWCA Minneapolis Fitness Centers

All three of YWCA Minneapolis’ health and fitness locations feature challenging and convenient classes, professional equipment and helpful, knowledgeable staff. Members have access to all three facilities!


The Downtown YWCA offers a full-service gym in the heart of the city, with group fitness classes, Pilates, TRX and personal training, aquatics classes and instruction in our full-size pool, and a spacious gym with plenty of ellipticals and treadmills.



The Midtown YWCA is the largest of all the locations, perfect for family fitness and activities. Enjoy the indoor water park or choose from nearly 100 classes a week. The attached Minneapolis Sports Center features the largest indoor walking track in the Twin Cities.


The Uptown YWCA boasts a seven-lane lap pool with a UV system that reduces chlorine irritants. The facility also has an indoor walking/running track, a coed whirlpool and sauna, and a wide range of classes, group training and personal training.
