For adults and seniors, the Y has personal training, a variety of group exercise classes, wellness orientations and free babysitting services.

Not only is the Columbia North Y the place for you to stay active and healthy, but is a safe, fun environment to make new friends and volunteer to help others. There are many programs and services offered at the Y each day to help all our community members learn, grow and thrive in their own unique way.

The Columbia North YMCA is a branch of the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA with a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

*Attention members, the Columbia North YMCA will begin construction of a NEW Family Locker Room! The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of January 2016. During this time, you can expect some group exercise classes locations and times to be adjusted. You can reference these changes on the updated group exercise schedule via the mobile app or printed copies at the branch. Studio 1 will still be used for some activities, however, you will notice portions of the area closed off. Studio 1 will also undergo renovations!

We appreciate your patience during the renovation process!

**Are you interested in earning a Personal Training certification from the American College of Sports Medicine? Register for this 3-day class by December 4, 2015 to ensure you have a spot! Classes will be held at the Stephen Klein YMCA and will run December 11-13 and cost $375. If you just need to re-certify, you may also attend the One-day workshop on Sunday for $129. For more information visit or to register, please visit
