Promoting Health

Fitness Club and Aquatics Program

The YWCA of Asheville provides full-service fitness and aquatics programs through our YWCA Fitness Club.

With a fully equipped gym, a wide range of classes, community wellness programs, and a solar-heated pool, the YWCA offers opportunities for everyone to participate in an exercise program, and even includes adaptive equipment and programs for individuals with special needs.

Best of all, our health and wellness programs are grounded in a friendly, welcoming environment, where everyone is accepted. (And yes, that includes men!)

Preventative Health

Our Diabetes Wellness and Prevention Program brings access to exercise and improved health to people in our community who couldn't otherwise afford a full membership. The program helps people with diabetes better manage their condition through regular exercise and supports healthy lifestyle changes for the entire family.
