Deal Details

If you make under $22,000 a year for single person or $35,000-$45,000 for family (could be more or less depending on area) you qualify for a scholarship to help pay for your membership.It's on a sliding scale and trust me it will be cheaper than most any other gym and you won't have the headaches of contracts.I am on S.S.I. and make under 7k a year,my membership is $7 a month.Hot tub,steam bath,swimming pool,elliptical trainers,weights and free programs.It's the best $7 I ever spent.Call your YMCA for details and a scholarship form.

Yes you need a copy of tax return,should call to make sure everything you need I can't remember everything exactly,it's not a lot.Just ask to apply for financial assistance for a membership and they'll give you the paperwork.

Your YMCA probably has a websit, check there first. I just googled YMCA Low income membership, and they vary from
Huntington YMCA http://www.huntingtonymca.org/faq.php
You would need to fill out financial aid forms and submit them submit to the YMCA's Membership Coordinator at the YMCA May Building (935 10th Avenue)

While http://www.hobartymca.org/ only states they'll extend your membership if you become unemployed (ie you have to already be a member, and have a sudden loss of a job occur).

Another social hand out!!!!!!!

I wouldn't call it that. More of a community service. People on SSI especially are suffering with some sort of illness and need to get the exercise, not only for the their physical being, but mental and social well being as well. It is very common for these people to isolate themselves with most of the people in their lives off to work or school everyday livng their lives, while they most likely are stuck at home most of the time.

I would gladly pay full price for a membership if I were healthy and could afford it, just as I am sure most others would. I would do anything to have my health back again, most of us take it for granted until something strikes us out of the blue.

Thanks for the post, OP. I will be checking into this today. I paid for Bally's a few years ago and could go back for $10 a month but they have closed all of them that are near to me.
