MAC by the Y is the embodiment of perseverance, motivation, and desire. We are here to help you exceed your potential and encourage others to do the same.
It’s like Gillian Anderson once said, “Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.”
Well, we think taking action, facing your fears, and having the perseverance to do it every day is much more enjoyable when you have a network of like-minded people challenging you every step of the way.
MAC by the Y exists to enhance the healthy lifestyles of professionals and athletes living and employed around Downtown Miami.
What distinguishes this new venture form the greater YCMA is that it only caters to adults.
We recognized that Downtown Miami did not offer a premiere, full-service fitness center for professionals living in the area. It was lacking a network of caring people who were passionate about encouraging others to get active and adopt healthy lifestyles.
That’s where we came in.
YMCA invested $2,000,000 into MAC by the Y.
We designed our newest, state-of-the-art facility to provide a spectrum of physical activities and learning experiences the entire downtown community could share in.
One of the challenges in communicating this to our core audience of outgoing, health conscious professionals was the stigma that the YMCA is a youth/family center. We may be an extension of our national brand, in that we engrained our core values (caring, honesty, respect, responsibility) into the dynamic of faculty, facility, and function.
Our facilities are designed specifically for adults.
Why is that, you ask?
The YMCA has always had a certain responsibility to uphold within the community. We have a reputation for positive youth development, instilling descent moral fiber in community leaders, building trust amongst neighbors, and teaching the true value of respect to everyone who passes through our doors.
We care for the people who make our community unique and position it, and the people around them, towards the future.
In fulfilling this mission we recognized a new area that could benefit from these principles.
Given that Downtown Miami and the people living there are primarily adults, we had to adjust our procedures to meet their needs.
Faculty. Facility. Function.
Our $2,000,000 renovation went into providing a comprehensive wellness experience that is equal parts mind, body, and spirit.
The way we bring people together and keep them together is just as integral as the programs and fitness spaces we provide.
We do take exceptional pride in what we are bringing to Downtown Miami…
The only indoor basketball court and track circuit for miles around, for instance!
And that’s just for starters! There is Nutrition and Weight Management, Clinics, Lunch and Learn Wellness Programs, Personal Training, Group Exercise Classes, Cycling Classes, Massage Rooms, Basketball Leagues, Pilates, Group Cycling Classes, an Outdoor Fitness Plaza, and on and on.
MAC by the Y is designed to exceed the needs of athletes and fitness seekers of all levels.
You’ll soon find that regardless of all your fitness routine there will be activities, programs, and networks for you to enhance your lifestyle.
