Becoming a Y Member

When you become a Y member, you’re joining a supportive community. Working together to complete your wellness goals suddenly makes them much more attainable. No matter your goals, fitness level, age, or interest, a Y membership can help you be your best.

If you’re looking for extra encouragement or added variety to your workout, try joining a group fitness class. We offer over 50 free classes, which are exclusive to our members. Our professional instructors are your own personal fitness mentors. You could say that with every Y membership, motivation and encouragement come standard.

How to Join:

 Stop by and visit one of our branch locations and talk to our expert staff about becoming a member and take a tour of our facilities. 

Membership Dues:

YMCA members are drafted once a month and with no contract you are able to cancel at any time. Membership dues can be paid in one of two ways:

Monthly: Automatic Electronic Draft through your credit/debit card or checking/savings account.

Annually: Payment in full by credit card 6 or 12 months in advance.

Income Based Memberships:

The Y is a mission driven, non-profit organization that strives to serve all. We believe that opening doors can close gaps. That’s why we welcome everyone to participate in our programs and services. To ensure this, based on your household income ($40,000 or less) we are able to customize your membership rate. Please stop into one of our branches and bring proof of income and we can assist you. 

Financial Assistance:

Through the generosity of donors, we are able to provide programs and services to those who may not otherwise be able to participate. If your financial situation is more complex than our income based pricing allows, you may apply for financial assistance. All Y members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of assistance.

Silver Sneakers:

The YMCA of Metropolitan Lansing offers Silver Sneakers®, the nation’s leading exercise program for active older adults who are Medicare eligible.  This innovative program provides opportunities for seniors to improve their fitness, health, and well-being. For more information, click here
