Central Queens Ym & Ywh
The Central Queens Y prides itself on providing a safe place for adults and families to work out and enrich themselves. The center boasts not only athletic facilities such as the full-court gymnasium and the muscle-making “Body Shop,” but also rentable gathering spaces, an activity room for older adults, and an impressive Jewish Heritage Library. The five-story, 35,000-square-foot complex also hosts fitness classes for young and old, and organizes a variety of cultural activities such as theater outings, museum trips, and classical music concerts. Elsewhere in the building, athletes can practice their strokes in the 84-degree indoor pool, or train for a job testing hamster wheels on one of the many treadmills and ellipticals.
