We’re committed to improving the lives of all of our members throughout Orange County and Central Florida!
Our Downtown Orlando YMCA family center has been a community hub located on historic Mills Avenue since the 1960s! Nowadays, you’ll enjoy features like a two-story addition, ample spaces in our parking lot, expansions to the aerobics areas and locker rooms, as well as added family changing rooms. We also have a Tropical Smoothie Café located inside for your pre-workout snacks and post-workout meals! As a leading nonprofit, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone has a place to learn, grow, and thrive.
In light of an Orange County executive order mandating face masks in public spaces, please note that face masks or a facial covering are required when you enter the building and in common spaces. Masks and facial coverings won’t be provided, so please be sure to bring your own.

I’ve been a member of the Downtown YMCA since 2004. This Y is more than a place to work out, it’s a place to connect with a community. I have witnessed the fabulous work they do for all the various people that come through this Y. I am proud to be a part of this community!
Welcoming environment and great staff. The entire staff is really friendly and they keep the place clean. I can’t praise them enough. You will not find a better gym in Orlando. They’ve got everything to change the shape of my body and all the instructed classes are awesome. Well done!
This YMCA is a family-friendly, clean facility. I am a young adult and I enjoy being in an environment with kids to elderly all pursuing fitness. I have tried several classes and all are awesome (Zumba, yoga, spin, HIIT classes, etc.)! I swim and have never had an issue with getting a lane. Even during the busiest hours, I can usually use the equipment I want to and have space to do workouts.
