To Fit


Dear Newark YMCA Members and Community,

We were expecting to reopen our fitness center and gym under limited conditions on July 2nd. Unfortunately, the most recent Executive Order from Governor Murphy prevents us from opening. We do not have a firm date for reopening, but are encouraged that it will happen soon. Please continue to visit our website and social media for updates.  

In the meanwhile, those members who have belongings in their lockers may come to the YMCA to gain access to their lockers Mondays – Fridays 9 am – 7 pm. All items in lockers and baskets must be removed by July 10th so we can properly clean and disinfect the locker rooms

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Y. As soon as we have a definite date, we will announce it. Please stay safe and healthy!

 Check out our multi-phased reopening plan: 

While we have been closed since mid-March, we've continued working to plan for our reopening.    Please see the Newark YMCA Covid-19 Reopening Plan for more details.  Click here for an overview of Phase One operations. 


The YMCA is a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurture the potential of kids, promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. JOIN US!
