We understand the inconvenience caused by the sauna’s ongoing issues. Our facilities team has been diligently working to identify and rectify the problem, but it has taken longer than anticipated. We share your frustration and are committed to getting the sauna operational as soon as possible.  

Despite our best efforts, the issue with the sauna not maintaining a high temperature has persisted. We are currently getting quotes, working on redesigning the sauna and ordering the necessary parts and supplies. This process will take several weeks.  

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused, as we understand the importance of the sauna to your gym experience. 

Basketball Court Schedule:  

There will be a temporary basketball court schedule the week of March 11th-16th due to Spring Break Summer Camp. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please be sure to check the YMCA360 app for the updated schedule.
