Y-Fit is a Health and Wellness programme being developed as part of the SA YMCA’s long term plan for sustainability. It is an income generating programme which slots in to the mission of the YMCA – to empower young people for Life, Leadership & Service.

Y-Fit is a gym, offering a quality, family orientated, well managed, well equipped gym facility to local communities. Prices are kept low through partnerships with local authorities, gym suppliers, fitness training institutions and part-time volunteer staff. Although the goal is to generate excess income, we remain a not for profit organisation. As a result, excess income is used to support other programmes run by the YMCA such as Y-Zone, Y-Justice and Y-Arts.

Currently there are gyms in Soweto, Durban, Nkandla and Pietermaritzburg.
