Are you a Husker Fanatic? Join NU and You and let the Huskers help shape your wellness!

At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. Members and program participants often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants as well as  youth engagement as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. 

The variety of fitness ammenities  we have at your disposal can help you establish, achieve or maintain an active lifestyle.  Our knowledgable fitness team can help you start an exercise program, become familiar with strength training, or help find you a group fitness class that suits your needs.  Did you know that we offer a free equipment orientation to ensure all lifters have proper form for a safe, healthy workout? 

Or perhaps you need more one-on-one support--Check out our personal training program. For those who like friendly competition or just a fun way to celebrate your well-being, our special events can provide the atmosphere you are looking for.  Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit; well-being and fitness at the Y is so much more than just working out.


Effective May 1, 2015 Youth 11-13 years of age must attend a free youth orientation class before allowed access to the wellness areas. Parent or legal guardian must be present to hear the first 10 minutes of the course. Courses are made available upon request.  Please speak with Front Desk to schedule your youth orienation class. 

Youth 11-13 who wish to take the opportunity to be in any wellness area of the facility, acknowledge that the parent and/or guardian over 18 years of age will be within 5 feet of youth at all times while in wellness area.
Youth 11-13 will be required to wear a name badge while in the wellness areas. This will hope to alert other members that you have a parent/guardian with with you, you have attended the youth orientation class, and have been granted access to use the wellness space.
14 & up have access to all cardio and strength training equipment in both YMCA facilities. We strongly recommend all youth schedule an equipment orientation to ensure proper form and technique while using the equipment.
