The Marshfield Area YMCA, Inc. has announced a major boost to its membership package.

Beginning January 1, 2022, the Marshfield Clinic Health System YMCA – Marshfield Center will include land and water group exercise classes and child watch with membership at no additional charge. The Marshfield Clinic Health System YMCA – Neillsville Center will include land group exercise classes with membership at no additional charge.

We want to make sure we are always delivering the best value possible for our YMCA members, and we’re thrilled to be able to include these amenities as a free member benefit.

Prior to this change, YMCA members would pay a monthly membership fee and then additional charges for group exercise classes and child watch at a reduced member rate. While the YMCA will still offer a non-member rate for its group exercise classes, members can now take classes free of charge with the ability in the near future to sign-up and save a spot in a class. Child Watch will not be offered for non-members.

The YMCA offers dozens of land and water group exercise classes per week. Classes are designed to accommodate all fitness levels and interests and a variety of ages. From low impact cardio and strength exercise to high intensity interval training classes, from adult and senior water exercise to a non-impact arthritis aquatic program, to indoor cycling and yoga, our classes are sure to strengthen your mind and body.

We’re really revamping our Healthy Living Department in anticipation of this move to free classes. We’re adding new instructors, offering additional trainings and certifications for all of our instructors, and refocusing our classes toward the fitness seeker. We want to create a welcoming, non-intimidating and fun atmosphere for people who simply want to improve their health and quality of life.

In light of all that’s happened the past 20 months with the pandemic, it’s become increasingly clear that regular exercise holds so many benefits to one’s health and immune system. We want to be a community leader in providing that opportunity. Free classes, along with Child Watch, for members is a big step toward that goal.

These new value-added member benefits do not include swim lessons, personal training, youth sports & fitness programs, adult sports leagues, or child care programs.

A full group exercise class schedule is available online at or by stopping at the Marshfield or Neillsville YMCA. We are currently not taking reservations for spots in classes. All classes will be first-come, first-serve until class capacity is reached. Stay tuned for more information regarding class reservations.
