Fitness Center Upgrades!
If you haven't visited the Hammond YMCA lately, we invite you back to take a look around. We have extensively updated the Fitness Center with new equipment, new lighting and a new floor plan. New cardio equipment options include four Arc Trainers, two seated ellipticals, two upright cycles and a unique Octane Lateral X trainer.
The redesigned lifting area features a Big Iron Half Rack, Fly/Delt Machine and all new benches. Come in for a tour and discover how the Y is so much more.

The Hammond Area YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We're more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.
Our mission is focused on you
The primary purpose of the Hammond Branch YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The Hammond Branch YMCA was founded in December 1964. In January of 2011 the Hammond Branch YMCA merged with the Southlake YMCA in Crown Point, IN to form an association called the Crossroads YMCA. We are now formally known as the Crossroads YMCA-Hammond Branch. In 2012 the Crossroads Y opened another location in Griffith and in 2015 we opened the Whiting Y in the former Whiting Community Center.
For more than 40 years we have supported our community with memberships, programs and many other beneficial activities. We offer a wide range of activities for everyone!
The YMCA is the largest non-profit organization in the country. There are over 2,500 YMCA's just in the U.S. The YMCA is for people of all faiths, race, abilities, gender, ages and income. No one is turned away at the YMCA for inability to pay. The YMCA serves over 18.9 million men, women and children in 10,000 communites throughout the United States. YMCA's stretch beyond the U.S. too. YMCA's are at work in more than 120 countries around the world, serving more than 45 million people. At the Y we are for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
