The YMCA of Greater High Point operates to impart better health on bodies and minds with myriad programs aimed at adults, youngsters, and senior citizens alike. Both the Hartley Drive YMCA and the Grubb YMCA house fitness centers are packed with ample exercise machinery, from Cybex strength-training equipment to PreCor ellipticals and treadmills, helping patrons aged 12 and older to seize a healthy physique without the hassle of hugging a bodybuilder. For camaraderie-based fitness, Grubb and Hartley host group exercise classes that corral clients of all stripes or cater specifically to kids or seniors. The Hartley gym's facilities further nurture fitness endeavors with an indoor track, two gymnasiums, four racquetball courts, and an indoor 25-meter swimming pool. After a solo or relative-supported workout, guests can hit the on-site locker rooms to freshen up or scoop too-little ones and thumb-sucking spouses from the Child Watch childcare center.
