SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA

The SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA has a long rich history in the Rockford Community.  This particular branch is noted as the 6th largest YMCA facility in the United States - featuring more than 160,000 square feet of building space on 3 floors.  The YMCA facility is seated on the Rock River and includes 15 acres of river front property in partnership with the Rockford Park District.

Following nine months of construction, the YMCA of Rock River Valley unveiled its new fitness center expansion at the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA on July 8, 2024. The two-story, 9,000-square-foot addition doubles the size of the fitness center. 

The center features mostly new equipment including 50 pieces of cardio equipment, a functional training space on turf - similar to what is available at the Northeast Family YMCA, additional plate-loaded items, and squat racks with bumper plates and platforms. 

Additionally, the Y is proud to be the first fitness center in the region to introduce EGYM, a comprehensive training option that takes the guesswork out of exercise. EGYM smart circuit machines automatically adjust to the user’s custom settings for weight, range of motion and cardiovascular exercise. Users are guided through a full-body workout in as little as 20 minutes. Click here to learn more about EGYM.
