Expected Behavior
The YMCA is an inclusive, family-friendly organization. We expect all our members and guests to model our five values—caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, faith—in their conduct and language. The YMCA has the right to terminate a membership at our discretion if actions or behaviors are not deemed in the best interests of the organization.

Bringing Guests

As a full member of the YMCA, you may bring in unlimited guests with you to experience our facility. Guests may visit with you twice before joining. A photo ID is required for guests 16 and older.

Physical Readiness

Before starting any exercise program, please check with your primary care physician. If you are age 13 or older, you may ask our fitness staff for a Health and Wellness Consultation to help you determine what level of workout is right for you. Talk with our fitness center staff to get recommendations on our cardiovascular machines, free weights and circuit training machines.

Changing Your Membership

You may change or transfer your membership to another branch of the YMCA of Greater St. Louis at any time. To cancel a membership on the easy monthly payment service, please give the YMCA 30 days advance written notice and return your membership card or cards.

Member Input

We value your suggestions for improving our YMCA. If you have a comment or suggestion, please pass it along to any member of our staff, fill out a member comment card and drop it in one of the suggestion boxes located throughout our YMCA, or contact us by e-mail or phone.
