Green Hills Family YMCA, located at 4041 Hillsboro Circle, is a community-focused wellness facility for those looking to work out in a group setting.

The family-friendly fitness center sees thousands of visitors every day seeking services like free group fitness classes, personal training, nutrition counseling and equipment inside its 10,000-square-feet wellness center.

“One of our main goals here is to be accepting of anyone who comes here,” said Kevin Meier, program director of the Green Hills location. “We’ve been adding more programs and areas that cater to everyone, whether that’s wheelchair accessible equipment, classes that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy and other programs.”

“On a cold day in January or February, we see that number basically double or more,” he said. “It usually stays that way until the weather warms up in May.”

Meier added that visitors come to work out at the wellness center, swim laps in the pool, take classes like yoga and cycling, or even engage in a game of basketball.
