Ways to Save

Active & Fit

Active & Fit is a benefit offered through some employer health plans that gives its members a no-cost membership at the YMCA. Check with your health insurance plan to see if this benefit is available.


Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey and the YMCA is making regular exercise even more beneficial for you with a program that rewards you when you stay on track to achieve your fitness goals. Visit horizonbfit.com to verify eligibility.


For participants of select Medicare Advantage Plans through UnitedHealthcare. Stay active and enjoy the benefits of a facility YMCA membership. To check eligibility, call your UnitedHealthcare plan’s Customer Service toll-free number on the back of your member ID card, or visit uhcrenewactive.com.

Horizon Family Gateway

The YMCA offers Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey members a FREE, one-month membership. The Gateway Family Membership is designed to provide families who are new to the YMCA access to a full array of services and many health and wellness programs. To register, bring your Horizon Blue Cross ID card to your Y's Welcome Center.

Corporate Health & Wellness Partnership

Take the first step toward a healthier workplace when you offer a YMCA corporate membership as part of your employee benefit package. Our members receive a number of benefits, including reduced membership rates and joining fees for employees. A YMCA membership provides access to a local Y facility and a range of wellness programs, including fitness classes.

20/20 Membership Program

It is a new membership program that allows our existing members to refer friends and family to join the YMCA. As an incentive for becoming a partner in health and referring a new member, they will become eligible for this program. When a member helps us to create a healthier community by referring a member, both the member and the friends and family they bring to the Y will receive a 20% savings off the standard rate of membership.
