The YMCA of Greater Boston is giving residents another reason to commit to a New Year’s resolution to be healthy: fees at the Charlestown YMCA are decreasing for most memberships.
Fulfilling its commitment to make healthy living accessible to all, the YMCA of Greater Boston has reduced rates across all of its 13 branches, including the Charlestown YMCA, 150 Third Avenue, Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston.
The Charlestown Y has added a young adult category for those ages 18 to 29 to make membership accessible to college students and young professionals. The new young adult monthly membership is $30. For adults 30 and over, memberships are $40 per month. Seniors will pay $30 per month.
“The YMCA of Greater Boston is all about healthy living, social responsibility and youth development,” said CEO Kevin Washington. “To further that goal, we want to ensure that the Y is affordable for all members of the community, from children to young adults to families and seniors. Everyone can benefit from the services of their local Y and this will make it easier for all during this difficult economy.”
Young adults who are living at home and are 26 or younger can remain on their family’s Y membership plan. YMCA Financial Assistance will continue to be available for individuals and families in need.
A Y membership includes access to all fitness facilities, locker rooms, gymnasium, group exercise classes, swimming pool access and aquatic programs (where applicable), wellness and nutrition consultation, and discounted prices for special programs.
