What to expect on your first visit

  • Bring your photo ID, and get ready for your close-up!  All members on your account will have their photo taken on-site as membership cards are issued.  A photo ID is required for members aged 16 and up.
  • After receiving your card, expect to be required to scan in using your YMCA app, facility card, or provide a school/state ID every time you visit a Y location.
  • If you plan to work out, it is suggested to bring your own towel, headphones/music, & water bottle.
  • Lockers are provided for your convenience at all YMCA of Central Ohio locations. Lockers are available for daily use by members and guests. To keep your belongings safe a lock is recommended when using lockers on site. The YMCA is not responsible for any items stolen in the facility or from the grounds.
  • Don't forget to schedule your FREE health & wellness consultation or try a class!
  • Please ask us questions if you have them! Our team members at the Welcome Desk and on the fitness floor are here to help.
