WE'RE OPEN. WELCOME BACK!
EFFECTIVE APRIL 19, 2021 – Members are no longer required to wear a mask while participating in strenuous activities as long as proper social distancing is maintained. Correspondingly, this means masks will not be required when exercising in the wellness center and during group exercise classes. Masks are required when congregating in building common areas and transitioning from one part of our facilities to another.
The Downtown Miami YMCA is a comprehensive gym and fitness center, outfitted to deliver a new revolution of healthy living that is equal parts mind, body, and spirit. Our renovation brings wellness, fitness, tranquility and community under one roof, because a workout regime should suit YOUR needs, YOUR schedule, and YOUR social life.
We believe wellness and fitness are a union of sound mind, sound body, and sound spirit. That’s why we built an all-inclusive gym for Downtown Miami. Complete with indoor basketball court and track circuit, our comprehensive renovation was designed with an entire community of active people in mind. So, test your endurance in our cardio theater. Center your breathing in our yoga & pilates studios. Learn to manage nutritional intake. Take your workout to the next level with our high intensity interval training. And realign your muscles and joints with Jaguar Therapeutics.
Single entry and exit points will be maintained at the Downtown Miami YMCA.
Members and staff are required to have their temperatures taken upon entry. Anyone with a temperature 100.4 degrees or higher will not be allowed to enter our building. Member temperatures are confidential and will not be kept on file by the YMCA.
