The new Marion YMCA features a six-lane lap pool, warm water/leisure pool with a play area for children, three full size basketball courts, 1/8 mile indoor track, two racquetball courts, classroom and meeting space. The second floor features two group exercise rooms, ample cardio and free weight equipment, and QueenAx functional training area. This location also includes brand new locker rooms for men and women, in addition to three family changing rooms.
Building hours will expand in the fall. We are monitoring building usage and demand, and are adjusting hours and classes accordingly.
Our members only policy is temporary due to current COVID-19 restrictions. We are not honoring guest passes at this time to be able to keep the building’s capacity lower to allow for social distancing inside. We are closely monitoring local health and state guidelines and will announce when guest passes will be once again honored at the YMCA. In the future, Marion residents will be able to purchase unlimited guest passes as a perk to Marion residents in partnership with the city.
Yes, Marion residents will receive a 10% discount when joining the YMCA (cannot be combined with other discounts). To prove residency, we ask that individuals bring a photo ID. If your photo ID does not have your updated address, we will require a utility bill. This discount is limited to residents of 52302 ONLY in partnership with the City of Marion’s large contribution to the project.
Reservations are required for all fitness classes as capacity is limited to ensure a safe social distance between participants. Reservations can be made on the online class schedule below. Reservations are available to make for fitness classes up to 7 days in advance.
