The hardest part of beginning the journey to better health and wellness is getting started. The Westfield Area Y is making it easier to begin 2016 healthy resolutions early by waiving the Joiner’s Fee from December 9, 2015 – January 9, 2016.
The Westfield Area Y is dedicated to developing the full potential of every individual and family within our community through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. You will feel like you “belong” at the Y with so many things to do and to enjoy each day. Included with your membership are 80+ group land and water fitness classes, two indoor swimming pools, an air conditioned double gym with Climbing Wall, cardio room for ages 13+, free-weight room for ages 15+, strength training room for ages 13+, and Fitness Express Center for ages 7+ that includes hydraulic equipment that’s easy on the joints and appropriate for youth and seniors to be used in 30 minute circuit.

There is no organization like the Y.

Kids and adults of all ages can learn, grow, socialize, and improve their health and well-being.

Thanks to the Annual Support Campaign for strong kids, families and seniors, at the Westfield Area Y no one who is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship is denied the opportunity to participate. In 2014, we provided $423,604 in direct financial assistance to 271 individuals, primarily for child care and summer camp services. When you give to the Y, your gift has a meaningful, enduring impact right here in our community.
