Downtown YMCA closed for move to new facility

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The downtown YMCA is closed while crews are moving workout machines and equipment to the new location.

The new Ascension St. Vincent YMCA is set to open on Thursday, September 5th.

The new facility will have five group fitness rooms for classes like hot and aerial yoga and boxing.

Officials will be working for the next week and a half.

In the meantime, Downtown YMCA officials are encouraging members to continue their workout routines at the Dunigan Family YMCA on the east side.

“We have a lot going on this week," Lisa Verkamp, YMCA Marketing Director, said. "Even though we’re not open to members, we do have a lot of staff and volunteers that are getting their workout in moving all the equipment across the street. We’re blessed to have a lot of people coming out and helping us make this important transition.”

The public is invited to opening day. It’s set for 3 p.m. Thursday, September 5th.
