Established in 1959.
92Y has had a gymnasium since its founding and was ahead of its time, over a 140-years ago, in providing a medical doctor who examined members before they were allowed to exercise. In 1930, the current 92nd Street Y building was opened with two gymnasiums and a 25-yard indoor pool. It was one of the largest and best equipped New York gym facilities of its time. The Health Club, officially established in 1959, continues the 92Y tradition of providing facilities and developing progress. In the last 10 years, the May Center has grown dramatically to serve nearly 30,000 people a year as the Center’s facilities have evolved to keep pace with the competitive fitness industry. Through health and wellness programs, as well as our ongoing fitness classes and facilities, the May Center strives to be an all-inclusive center where people of all ages and with varying levels of fitness can come to improve their well-being.
