Healthy Living – Missoula YMCA


We’re passionate about helping everyone pursue a healthy lifestyle in spirit, mind and body and our members get to take advantage of programs, services and our facility to help them do just that.


Excitement abounds with our newly remodeled Health and Wellness Center!  Gone are the drab walls and carpets and NEW are machines and our cycling studio and cardio equipment, strength equipment, and training space.
This fresh take on health and wellness improves accessibility for all people by opening up space and removing any obstacles that bar the way to equipment.  It also flaunts comfort and brightness that is sure to keep health seekers motivated.

Hence, our new cycling studio, which has halfway frosted glass to shield one’s backside.  Our equipment is also arranged in a more pleasing manner for health seekers, and vigor and well being thrive in the niceness of this newly remodeled space. This center includes circuit training machines and free weights, stationary and recumbent bikes, treadmills, elliptical treadmills, arc trainers, Espresso fitness bikes, spinning bikes and our wood-floor group exercise studio.
