When you join the YMCA, you're not just a member of a gym, you're part of a community that is here for everyone. As a nonprofit community organization, the Y works towards providing practical and affordable answers to large-scale community issues focusing on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, for a better us.
Currently, you can have access to the fitness center and weight room, group exercise classes, our virtual fitness studio, lap swim, open gym, personal and small group training, pickleball, teen programs, child care and more by joining the Y! Plus when we do reopen completely, you'll be pleased to find we have so much more in store. While the world is not quite back to normal yet, with the Y and our community working together, we can still safely come together and take care of our health and wellness—physically, socially and mentally. Together, we are stronger.

Regardless of your home branch selection, your membership includes access to all available offerings at both the Berkeley Heights YMCA & the Summit YMCA.
With guidance from the local and state authorities, we are continually adapting our programming to serve the needs of our members. We have incorporated a number of new protocols and safety measures to help keep you safe while participating in activities at our Y.
General visits to workout in the fitness center do not require a reservation, however members are required to check-in and check out of the building to maintain an accurate capacity count.
The numbers show the percentage of members checked in to the Fitness Center. We have incorporated the reduced capacity requirements into this calculation. As the number moves towards 100% it means there are more members in the facility relative to the new total capacity. Only if the capacity dashboard reaches 100% will you have to wait until someone leaves, to enter the facility.
Browse our current offerings and associated participation policies on our REOPENING GUIDE for the most up to date information on available programs and policies.
As a nonprofit, we are committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families in our community. With the generous donations of members, donors, and partners in the community, the Summit Area YMCA is able to offer financial assistance for our programs to those in need.
