The YMCA of Rock River Valley is preparing to open its newest facility at 1475 S. Perryville Road.

The Puri Family YMCA will open its doors on April 29 and will be the Y’s first 24-hour facility in the Rock River Valley Region, with a 15,500 square foot facility that is being classified as a micro-Y. It will offer many amenities to help members pursue a healthy spirit, mind and body, says the Y.

Features include:

  • State-of-the-art healthy living center with the latest cardio and strength-training equipment
  • Dozens of free group exercise classes including cycling, Les Mills, Zumba, Pilates, and much more
