All of our facility's programming revolves around the three tenets of our mission — healthy living, youth development and social responsibility — to put you on your way to discovering your “Y.”

Workout from Home

Workout whenever, wherever with PhilaYathome - your virtual YMCA. Members can choose from hundreds of on-demand classes, catch a LIVE online class with fan-favorite instructors, workout with LES MILLS, or browse the latest lifestyle and health articles.

Healthy Living

Staying active is a crucial part of our goal of healthy living, and everything in the Roxborough YMCA caters to helping you do so. Visit with a personal trainer to discover a customized path to fitness or get started right away in our strength and cardio fitness center. We also have space for basketball, pickleball, boxing, weightlifting and more.

Our indoor pool is available for your use to get in a low-impact workout. Afterward, take a trip to the sauna and work up a sweat before returning to your day. If you're unsure where to start, check out our list of the unlimited exercise classes included with your membership!

Youth Development

Our children are our future, and we want to offer them everything we can to enrich their lives. We start with before- and after-school care to ensure they have a place to go and socialize outside of class. Then, we offer kids and teens programs to help them learn more about sports, science, art and other subjects. Teens at the Y are welcome to join courses in civic engagement and career readiness, too.

The best part? All of these programs come at a discount to our members.

Social Responsibility

Even though there's so much happening inside the Roxborough YMCA, we take our mission out to the streets of Philadelphia, too. Check out more of what's happening below. We're constantly adding new special programs, fundraisers and more to our calendar. We hope you'll get involved with us! Sign up for a membership today and find your path to healthy living.

No Place for Hate

We partnered with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to ensure the YMCA is inclusive and available for everyone. In 2022, our branch earned No Place for Hate accreditation through the ADL.

The accreditation comes after a year-long initiative to ensure inclusion in all facets of our YMCA. The initiative was made up of events, pledges, celebrations, and daily acts of acceptance and inclusion.

We welcome our neighbors of all races, genders, and abilities at the Y. We pledge to continue to ensure the Y is inclusive, accepting, and a place for all people.
