Can I try the Y first? 
The YMCA of South Palm Beach County is a membership organization and our first priority is to serve our members who have made a commitment to the Y by joining. The purpose behind our guest policy is to share all that we have to offer through membership. Each guest can come twice per year as a complimentary guest. After those two days, they must either purchase a 30-day pass or activate a membership to continue using the facility. Guests under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult 18+. All guests must sign a waiver and check in at the Front Desk. All Y policies and usage guidelines must be followed by all guests. In addition to enhance service to current members who are encourage a friend to join, members may refer a friends to come try the Y for a FREE WEEK with a member referral.
