Share the Health Member Referral Program

Your goal to live a healthier, more active life was set by you, not anyone else — but, that doesn’t mean you’re in it alone, either.

When you and your friend commit to the Y together, you both enjoy an exclusive 20% membership savings* off the standard adult or family membership rate each month. Y members may buddy with a non-member or two non-members may join together— either combination returns a 20% savings* for each of you on your Y membership!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

I’M A Y MEMBER

Bring in a new Y member and both receive up to 20% savings on your adult or family membership as long as you both remain members of the Y.

I’M NOT A Y MEMBER

Find a friend that is a Y member and buddy-up OR find a friend that wants to join the Y and buddy-up – either way you both receive a 20% savings on your membership as long as you both remain members of the Y.

FOR ALL MEMBERS PARTICIPATING IN SHARE THE HEALTH

If one of you leaves the Y, the remaining member has 30 days to find a new non-member in order to keep the Share the Health rate. Unfortunately, we are not able to issue refunds. Some restrictions may apply.

Water Fitness Class Schedule



Water fitness is an ideal form of exercise for all ages and utilizes the buoyant qualities of water to increase physical strength and endurance without putting stress and strain on your joints. You do not need to register ahead of time. Just show up ready for a great workout! Members age 13 and up can take any of our water exercise classes. Here is a sampling of our current classes:

  • Aqua Jogging - Incorporate aqua jogging to music as well as some interval training. Run in the water and put less stress on your joints.
  • Aquacize - Shallow water exercise. No swimming ability required.
  • Aqua Zumba® - Aqua Zumba uses mostly Latin music rhythms such as meringue, cumbia and salsa but can also use a variety of upbeat tempos as found in swing or country music. The movements will be slower than in a class you would do on land, yet they can be just as intense due to the water’s resistance.
  • Deep H20 - This class will challenge all fitness levels while being easy on the joints. Resistive equipment is used to increase intensity. Confidence in deep water is strongly suggested. Flotation belts are available.
  • Aqua Mix - These weekend classes are taught by 2 different instructors who will bring their own flavor to the class.
  • Wet ‘N Wild - High energy class for total body conditioning! Primarily uses shallow water.
  • Arthritis Water Exercise - This class will help you gain range of motion in your joints as well as build strength in all major muscle groups. Some cardiovascular conditioning included. This class is open to non-members for a fee. A doctor release form is required for non-members

Nationwide Membership

At the Y, we are for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We are dedicated to ensuring our facilities, programs and services are open and welcoming to all. As part of this effort, we are proud to offer our members access to Y facilities across the United States that participate in Nationwide Membership. This way, our members can use the Y as often as they like, making it easier to achieve their health and wellness goals.

ALWAYS WELCOME

Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating Y in the United States through membership at your “home” Y (your home Y is the local association that enrolled you as a member and collects your membership dues). We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our mission to strengthen communities.

IN EVERY COMMUNITY

We understand that sometimes it is more convenient for members to take advantage of a Y near their workplace or when they are traveling outside the area of their home Y. With Nationwide Membership, members have the flexibility to use participating Y facilities throughout the United States at no extra charge.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Nationwide Membership is valid for active, full facility Y members whose home Y participates without restriction or blackout periods
  • Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time
  • Program-only participants (including Silver Sneakers, Silver and Fit or other like programs) are not eligible for nationwide membership
  • Special memberships established by any Y for group homes, other agencies, etc., are not eligible
  • When visiting a Y, nationwide members will be required to show a valid YMCA membership card and photo ID as well as provide basic membership data such as name and email address
  • Members will need to sign a universal liability waiver and privacy policy
  • Ys should allow nationwide members access to services typically offered to full-facility members. Check with the Y for schedule and availability. Nationwide members visiting other Ys for a period greater than 28 days must transfer membership affiliation for continued use
  • All Ys reserve the right to restrict or revoke these privileges
  • Registered sex offenders are prohibited from participating

At the Y, we believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. This strengthening of community—and the realization of a Y’s full potential—is best done when all Ys are open to all members.

Annual Campaign



At the Y no child, family or adult is turned away for membership or program participation. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. We can't do this alone!

Last year financial assistance was provided to 1,456 people
totaling $283,721. This is made possible through donations to our Annual Campaign and the support of the United Way of Carlisle and Cumberland County. Scholarships are not funded through membership fees, which makes the success of our Annual Campaign vital to our community-strengthening efforts.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the campaign in 2019. We raised $72,639 to support our mission. Please contact Cate Mellen if you still would like to donate to the 2019 campaign.

In partnership with the Y, you can feel confident your contribution is making a meaningful and lasting impact and to move people forward.

We are very pleased to have M&T Bank as our 2019 Annual Campaign Community Partner. M&T Bank has generously donated $15,000 to the Annual Campaign. In addition to the monetary donation, members of the bank’s management team volunteered their time to help raise campaign funds. Their generous donation will help subsidize youth programs and provide membership and program scholarships to those in need. Thank you!

World Service Campaign



​In many communities around the world, the Y is the only place where a child can access a library, a teen can learn about HIV / AIDS prevention or a family can break the cycle of poverty because of a Y job training program. Every day, Ys in 120 countries help more than 58 million people reach their full potential for a better future.

Each year, the Y’s World Service Campaign directly impacts more than a million people worldwide by funding programs focused in six areas: Strengthening YMCA Movements; Health Education; Youth Leadership and Service-Learning; Employment and Vocational Training; Recreation, Camping and the Arts; and Education and Technology.

Because Ys focus on the most critical issues impacting their communities and at least 85 cents of every dollar contributed to the World Service Campaign directly supports Y initiatives, your gift will help to change lives.

WHAT IS TRX SUSPENSION TRAINING®?

Born in the Navy SEALs, TRX Suspension Training® develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. Class size is limited to 9 people.

BENEFITS OF TRX® SUSPENSION TRAINING

  • Your body is your machine – no weights or machines needed!
  • Simultaneously develop strength, balance flexibility and core stability so you can get a total body workout in a fraction of the time of traditional strength training methods.
  • Instantly modify resistance by adjusting your body position.
  • ALL CORE, ALL THE TIME!
  • Limitless variation in movement angle and planes of motion for virtually all exercises allows you to train like you live.
  • Excellent for all fitness levels – beginner to elite athletes. Every exercise can be altered to be easier or more challenging.
  • Improves muscular imbalances to help avoid training injuries.
  • Low-impact exercise gives your joints a rest.
  • Combines cardio and strength training.
  • Perform the exercises at a rapid pace to build your anaerobic endurance, or slow it down and control the movements to build your aerobic endurance.
  • It’s fun! TRX® is a great way to shake up your training routine. Substitute 1-2 workouts a week in place of your regular strength training workouts helps ensure your body will constantly be challenged.

And don't forget the free food from South Side Deli!

We are looking for local agencies to provide information and activities for kids and their families. If you are interested in being part of this event, please contact Michelle Bell. All organizations can participate at no cost.

A written test and practical exam will be given. Please bring your current certification card, identification, a notebook, pen, swim suit, towel, personal pocket mask and goggles. If you do not have a personal pocket mask, you can order one for $14 at the time of registration. Participants will be required to take the CPR recertification course regardless of whether their CPR is expiring so all certifications will be on the same two-year cycle. If you register for this course, you do not need to register for the CPR class; it will be assumed you are attending both classes. The new certification is good for 2 years.
