Our heart is in the heart of downtown.
A historic landmark in downtown Indy, the YMCA at the Athenaeum has a rich heritage.
Just a few blocks from bustle of Mass Ave, the YMCA at the Athenaeum offers access to workout facilities and programs in the center of downtown Indy. It boasts a range of equipment—including cardio and Cybex® strength machines, a coed sauna, 1,000 square feet of free weights, and three studios for cycling and group exercise.
Locker rooms equipped with showers and free nearby parking for members make it easy to fit in a workout over lunch or after the workday ends. The center also features a Play & Learn center for families with a household membership, and Silver Sneakers® memberships. And it’s easy to reach using IndyGo Route 3.
