Strength and Cardio Equipment

The Y's fitness centers are packed with all the latest cardio and strength training equipment. Whether you prefer running on a treadmill, cycling beside a friend, reading while on an elliptical trainer, lifting free weights or using strength training equipment, you can achieve your goals at the Y.


Quality Child Care

Nurturing staff at the Monroeville Area YMCA provide safe, fun and valued child care. Enjoy a good workout or period of relaxation while your children play, explore and learn with experienced, caring YMCA staff. Drop-in Child Care is more than a babysitting service.

During each child's stay YMCA staff members provide learning experiences in a fun environment. They are trained to teach your child fine and gross motor skills, socialization and how to make healthy choices.



Our YMCA is a membership organization open to all people. The YMCA welcomes women and men, girls and boys of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities and financial circumstances. While staying within the available resources used to subsidize financial assistance, the Monroeville Area YMCA strives to never turn anyone away from membership or programs because of inability to pay.  Financial Assistance is provided to individuals, kids and families on a by-need basis and allow access to all programs, activities and facilities at the Y. If we can serve you or your family in this way, please fill out the Financial Assistance Request form available at our member services desk.



When you travel do you have problems continuing your workout? The YMCA AWAY program can help… Another benefit of your membership!

AWAY means “Always Welcome at YMCAs.” The AWAY program is based on the philosophy that when a person enrolls in a YMCA, he or she becomes a member of a nationwide association with a cause for strengthening communities and, therefore, when away from home, on business or vacation, will be warmly welcomed by all other participating YMCAs in the United States.

Because a YMCA’s participation in this program is voluntary, some restrictions may apply. If you are planning to visit another YMCA, please call that YMCA for its visitor policies before you go. You may also go to, and conduct a “Find Your YMCA” search.



With the Y, you’re not just a member of a facility, you’re a part of a cause. With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will not just bring about a meaningful change in yourself, but also in your community. 

Your membership also gives you opportunities to save. Members receive: Member rates on programs such as Day Camp, Youth Sports, Swim Lessons, Afterschool
