Here at the YMCA we believe that the health and fitness of the Emerald Coast community is of utmost importance in this fast-moving world. We offer a wide array of exercise and weight training equipment, along with knowledgeable staff who can provide you with the tools you need to start (and stay!) on the path to wellness.
The YMCA of Florida’s Emerald Coast has 3 full service branches; Crestview, Fort Walton and Niceville. Each of these facilities offers up-to-date treadmills, elliptical machines, and stationary bikes along with other cardio equipment. Free weights and weight training machines are also available along with a basketball court at our Fort Walton Branch. For help in beginning your health and fitness journey, speak with someone at your YMCA about scheduling time with a Wellness Specialist!
Group Exercise classes are available free for all members. We have a variety of classes for all fitness levels and ages including Yoga, Stretch & Flex, Cycling and Spinning, Tai Chi, Zumba and more! Certified instructors lead well rounded workouts that include activities such as stretching, strength training and aerobic exercise.
Personal Fitness Program
When you join the YMCA of Florida’s Emerald Coast, we offer you a free orientation to assess your fitness needs and goals. After your orientation we will create a fitness program that is structured specifically for you.
For enhancing your overall health and wellness, few fitness regimens can compare to Personal Training. A customized plan is developed to fit your personal needs. Most importantly, your trainer will be with you every step of the way, providing professional guidance, encouragement, and motivation.
