Countryside YMCA is home to one of the largest cardio and strength centers in the region. In addition, we have fitness studios, a starter fitness studio, and circuit training. Whether you need to start an exercise routine, get back into fitness after a break, or ramp up your workouts, the Y has the equipment to make it happen.




Our largest fitness center, the CSC, is a 13,000 square foot space designed for both cardiovascular and strength workouts using top-of-the-line equipment. Fitness Center instructors are available to provide training on the equipment and Personal Trainers are also available by appointment.

The CSC can be used by teens ages 15 and older and adults. Teens ages 12 to 14-year-olds may also use the Fitness Center when accompanied by a parent. Members who are ages 12 to 14 should sign in at the Cardio Strength Center Desk and wear a youth badge during their workout.
