Healthy Living

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active

Being healthy is about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.

Here at the YMCA of Frederick County, you’ll find a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our family-centered activities.


Family Time

Serving families has always been at the heart of our organization. Our Y brings families together to have fun and grow together. Facing challenging economic times has many families looking for creative, cost-saving alternatives for enjoying time together. But great family memories and fun, physical activity doesn’t have to break the bank. The YMCA of Frederick County offers ideas for family fun that focus on physical well being and building family connections.

Health, Well-Being & Fitness

Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, our well-being and fitness programs involve more than just working out. In addition to our physical fitness classes and facilities, we provide guidance to promote healthier lifestyle decisions.

Sports & Recreation

We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren’t just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. With something to offer everyone, there’s no such thing as being too old to get in the game.

OUR MISSION: To Put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
