As part of the Duke Fitness Club, faculty and staff will receive waived enrollment fees to Triangle YMCA facilities and can pay monthly dues through payroll deduction. For more information about the YMCA of the Triangle, please see their official website.

Please click on the link for each site to learn more about the services and amenities offered at that location.

If you have questions about who qualifies to join the YMCA from your family or household, we recommend you visit the YMCA's membership policies.

When you're ready to end your membership with the YMCA, you must fill out a cancellation form with LIVE FOR LIFE to stop your payments. Filling out a cancellation at your local YMCA branch will NOT end your membership with LIVE FOR LIFE and your payments will continue.
