Areas of focus

Wellness Center


The Wellness Center, initially opened in September 2001 in partnership with Fairfield Medical Center, is a facility with the equipment and the staff to address the physical health needs of individuals.

The YMCA supervises member usage in the Wellness Center by showing them how to use equipment and maintaining cleanliness. Equipment orientations are offered free of charge to members by appointment with YMCA staff. To start the process, please see a Member Service Representative. Personal trainers are available to customize individual workouts.  Additional information is located at the Member Service Desk.

Equipment includes cardiovascular machines, selectorized strength machines, free weights for strengthening, an ab solo machine, and stretching machines. Dumbbells up to 125 pounds and several accessory pieces (straps, belts, bars, bands, balls, etc.) compliment the training routine. The perimeter of the Wellness Center is surrounded by a track (13 laps to one mile) for walking or running and stretching areas.

In an effort to be user friendly, this facility is accessible any time the YMCA is open for business. There is no sign-in sheet and no equipment reservations – just start right in! Feel free to ask any YMCA staff if you need assistance. Simple rules are posted for your information and safety in the Wellness Center.


We provide sanitizing spray and paper towels as a way to fight the battle against germs, colds and the flu. Please spray off vinyl pads, handle grips and other parts touched. On cardio consoles, do not spray cleaner directly, but spray a towel and then wipe off. Thanks for your cooperation!
