Huntington Avenue YMCA

Another fitness option for students is to purchase a membership at the Hungtinton Avenue YMCA, which is also located in close proximity to campus. Membership at the YMCA includes access to cardio and strength-training equipment, fitness classes, and the ability to utilize 13 YMCA locations in greater Boston. Membership can be paid on a monthly basis and there is no contract. This may be a good option for those students seeking a more flexible arrangement or for students who reside further away from campus. For more information, please visit the YMCA website. When signing up, be sure to specify that you are a Boston Conservatory student.
