Welcome to the Frank DeLuca YMCA

We’re committed to improving the lives of all of our members throughout Ocala and Central Florida!

Our family center is located by the Heart of Florida Health Center (East Ocala) and across the street from Hillcrest Public School. This modern facility is full of families, seniors, and individuals that visit the Y to stay active, social, and grab a bite to eat in our delicious dine-in café! From our new studio spaces, saunas, personal training program, Teen Center, playground for kids, and more—we have something for everyone! 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.

We really enjoy this YMCA location. My family and I have been Y members for almost five years now. This particular location always has great staff and clean equipment. It’s also nice seeing the things they do in the local community.

There could never be enough to say about this location! All of the staff are not only knowledgeable but courteous as well. But it’s the amazing ladies in the Child Development Center that keep us coming back. They take care of your children as if they were theirs and we appreciate that most of all! Thank you!
