Buddy-Up For Fitness (BFF)

Membership Referral Program

Some things just go better together. We know that when you work out with a friend, you’re more likely to stick with your goals, and you’ll have more fun doing it!

When you and your BFF (Buddy For Fitness) commit to the Y together, you will both receive an exclusive 20% savings off of the standard membership rate each month.

The savings are just the beginning of your BFF journey! Buddy-up for the Y’s New Year’s Challenge, Personal Training, and popular group classes like ZUMBA®, Power Pump, Water Exercise, Yoga, and more.

Buddy-up to play hoops, pickleball, racquetball, or tennis.  You can grab a coffee together, play bridge or chess, learn to ballroom dance, or try out Fitness on Demand.

There are so many opportunities for you and your buddy to get the most out of your value-packed Y membership – you’ll wonder if you will still have time for your other interests!



Bring in a new Y member and both receive a 20% savings on your membership as long as you both remain members of the Y.  A “new member” is someone who has not been a member for at least 6 months.


Find a friend that wants to join the Y and buddy-up – either way you both receive a 20% savings on your membership as long as you both remain members of the Y.

If one of you leaves the Y (we do not have a contract for membership), the remaining member has 30 days to Buddy-Up for Fitness with a new non-member in order to keep the Buddy-Up rate.

Unfortunately, we are not able to issue refunds. Some restrictions may apply.  Only one discount type per membership.



Take 20% off all membership dues.

Changes made to the program will be communicated to participating members 30 days prior to the change taking place. I also understand that I am only eligible for the BFF rate as long as I maintain a buddy at the Jamestown Area YMCA and that I have 30 days to secure a buddy if my original buddy should leave the Jamestown Area YMCA. If I am unable to secure a buddy within 30 days, the rate will automatically revert to the standard membership rate. No refunds are available. Other restrictions may apply.
