About the Buena Vista YMCA Express

NOW OPEN! The new Buena Vista YMCA Express is a YMCA wellness-only location offering a personalized, streamlined experience for wellness seekers at all fitness levels, ages 14 and up. Featuring the innovative EGYM Smart Strength Equipment, an MX4 Training Program, and traditional weight and cardio equipment, members can get in a workout that fits their lifestyle. The Myzone wearable heart rate tracker will also be available for purchase at this location for enhanced workout tracking and motivation.

The Buena Vista YMCA Express is a co-op project in conjunction with Omaha Public Schools, located on the Buena Vista High School campus at 5616 L Street.

Buena Vista YMCA Express members can also utilize our 11 other traditional YMCA facilities for open swimming, lap swimming, group fitness classes, and Childwatch while you work out at no extra charge. You can also utilize their youth programming like sports, swim lessons and summer day camp with the YMCA member discount.

We are looking forward to helping the community surrounding the Buena Vista YMCA Express, including the staff and students in the high school, become their best selves!


The Y is for people of all genders, faiths, races, abilities, and incomes. We believe in providing membership and program services to all who desire to participate. Thanks to the United Way of the Midlands and the YMCA of Greater Omaha’s Strong Communities Campaign, financial assistance is available for those in need within our available resources.
