Why The Y? What Our Members Have To Say.


Since our inception, the YMCA of Catawba Valley has been guided by its Christian mission and values to strengthen the foundations of our community and nurture the potential of those men, women and children who make up the diverse and culture rich environment our wonderful community is built upon. As a leading nonprofit dedicated to meeting community needs, we engage people across several counties, giving more than 200,000 of our neighbors and children the chance to learn, grow and thrive in a welcoming atmosphere.

The Y offers more than just fitness programs, a fitness center, or a pool. The Y is so much more and it offers so much. It offers fitness for all ages and financial assistance for fitness programs. The beauty of the Y is that it offers opportunities for all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. We truly are an organization that serves the community from cradle to grave. The fitness programs we offer start as young as 10 years old and go all the way through senior programs. For kids, we offer kids fit which teaches children how to use the equipment in the fitness center in a safe way and all allows for children to progress to different parts of the facility as they get older. We encourage families to come together and workout together so habits can be formed at a young age. The YMCA of Catawba Valley really values that fitness for all ages is about having multiple age groups represented in every area of our Y. From the pool, to the fitness center, to the group classes, it is great to see so many different ages, abilities, and backgrounds represented at the Y.

How can you sign up for your Coaching Connection?: When you enroll, you’ll meet one-on-one with a trained wellness professional. At your first meeting, your coach’s priority is to sit down and listen to your story. They learn about your health history and discuss your likes and dislikes.Most importantly, they learn about your goals. Whether you’re just getting started or have exercised for years your personal goals become your coach’s primary focus.

You’ll meet with a coach once a week for six weeks. During this time, your coach will help you create a comprehensive wellness plan that will get you on track for meeting your goals. The Y is committed to your success, so you can re-enroll in the program as often as you need.
