Franklin & Marshall is pleased to have joined the Lancaster YMCA's Healthy Workplace Program. Through the Healthy Workplace Program, faculty and professional staff of Franklin & Marshall are eligible to receive discounts on adult and family YMCA memberships, both at the City Y and the Lampeter-Strasburg branch. Faculty and staff are eligible to receive a 10% discount on an adult or family Y membership, as well as a discounted initial registration fee.
Faculty and staff who wish to join the Lancaster Y may download a membership application from http://www.lancasterymca.org/join/ , and should bring the completed application to a Y branch along with their F&M ID card. Current Lancaster Y members can receive the 10% discount going forward by showing their F&M ID card to a YMCA membership coordinator.
Y members enjoy access to fitness facilities and equipment; indoor and outdoor pools; indoor and outdoor tracks; a steam room, sauna, and whirlpool; a variety of fitness classes and recreation activities for all ages; and an "I-Zone" fitness room and child watch area for kids.
