With a Facility Membership, you have full use of the facilities in five different YMCA locations in Santa Clara Valley (Central YMCA, East Valley Family YMCA, Northwest YMCA, South Valley Family YMCA and Southwest YMCA). This includes the YMCA fitness centers and a free fitness center orientation, unlimited group exercise classes, and lap and recreational swimming.
