YMCA Launches Curbside Membership Program amid Saint John Region Orange Phase

The YMCA of Greater Saint John is thrilled to offer the Curbside Membership program to current and prospective members who want to stay healthy and active from the safety and comfort of their own homes. It allows participants to order exercise equipment and programs online for pick-up.

“We’re all feeling anxious going back into the Orange Phase,” says Shilo Boucher, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Saint John. “But we want our members and our entire community to know that the Y is always here for them.”

Current Y Members can access the program at no added cost by placing orders through the association’s website. Four unique program streams are currently available that are tailored for families of all sizes and all ages and stages of life.

  • Family Activity Bucket – Provides six activities to keep families active while having fun and challenging each other.
  • Workouts for Youth – Focuses on physical literacy and skills development for children.
  • Workouts for Adults – Focuses on aerobic fitness, strength, core exercises, balance training, flexibility, stretching exercises, and more for adults.
  • Workouts for Older Adults – Helps to improve mobility, physical functioning, performance in activities of daily living (ADL), and preserving independence

The Y’s Health, Fitness, and Membership team will confirm orders by phone or e-mail within 24 hours, after which pick-up times are coordinated.

“COVID-19 has been an unprecedented challenge for our community. It’s one that we’ll all overcome together by staying healthy and staying safe,” says Boucher. “Keeping active is a great way to look after your physical and mental health.”

The Y extends an invitation to the public to enroll in this unique fitness program. It is available for $20 plus tax bi-weekly and a one-time joiner fee of $50. There are no contracts or long-term commitments.
