Maximize Your Membership


At the Y, we’re here for you every step of the way. We want our members to have the best experience possible. Here are five ways to help you get the most out of your membership at the YMCA of Florida’s First Coast!

If you have not already, please visit an Experience Maker at the Welcome Center to get your photo taken for your new key fob, and be sure to sign our facility waiver.

Our newest program, FastForward Fitness, combines the expertise of our nationally-certified trainers with a powerful technology tool called ActivTrax that is proven to make HEALTH-SEEKERS four to six times more likely to reach their wellness goals. This program starts with a JumpStart appointment to familiarize you with the equipment, group exercise classes and set-up your Activtrax profile. After this visit, you will receive two free guest passes for friends. Ask any Welcome Center or Wellness Experience Maker for more information about this free service and to schedule your JumpStart appointment if you have not done so already.

We are here to help you achieve your goals, and a great way to get started is with Personal Training. We offer special discounts on personal training for first time clients. We also offer boot camp and group training options. Ask a Wellness Experience Maker for more information.
