Let Us Serve You

You do so much to keep our country safe.
It’s our turn to give back to you.

As an affiliate of the Armed Services YMCA, the First Coast YMCA strengthens our military family by providing programs and services to the young men and women of all five armed services: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.


February 16 – April 8

Operation Strong & Ready (OSR), our new wellness program specially designed for service members, begins in February. In partnership with Building Healthy Military Communities and the University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension (UF/IFAS Extension), the First Coast YMCA created OSR to help service members be prepared to operate at peak performance and pass their branch’s fitness test.

Sponsored by USAA, OSR is an 8-week program (one hour twice a week) led by certified First Coast YMCA wellness coaches and personal trainers. The program will also include eight nutrition education and health lessons developed by Registered Dietitian/Nutritionists from UF/IFAS Extension.

In response to COVID-19, we will be delivering the program in a safe and supportive, virtual environment. This will also allow us to increase access from our local service area to service members across the state of Florida and beyond.

Thanks to generous donors across the First Coast and grant-funding, our YMCA is able to offer exclusive membership rates for active duty members of the armed forces (including National Guard and Reservists), veterans and their families.

You’ll save up to up to $57/month on membership fees, plus we’ll waive your joining fee (up to $100 savings). You can choose one First Coast YMCA location or get access to all locations on the First Coast.
