Live Life To The Fullest

The Alleghany Highlands YMCA and R. P. Fralin Inc. announce an exciting partnership between the Y and River Retreat, a brand new apartment complex located along the river in the beautiful Alleghany Highlands!

At the Alleghany Highlands YMCA, we believe that when we devote our full strength to the Y's mission and cause, work in partnership with others, and build on our commitment to the children, families, and underserved people of the Highlands region, we can address the most pressing issues of our community unlike any other organization.

The first 64 tenants of River Retreat will receive a free one year membership to the Y!*

How it Works:

  1. Upon confirmation of the tenant's lease agreement with River Retreat, the YMCA will authorize the free membership discount for new members.*
  2. In order to properly apply the discount, River Retreat membership registrations must be completed at our Member Services Desk. Proof of identity is required.
  3. To facilitate the registration process, the Membership Registration Form may be downloaded and completed in advance.
  4. Discount of Locker Rental and other Program Fees are not included in this agreement.
  5. The River Retreat Corporate Membership is valid for the tenant only. The membership may not be shared/transferred to another person.
  6. All policies must be adhered to. Failure to do so may result in termination of the membership. No refunds will be given.
  7. Should a lease agreement with a tenant terminate during the first year of the tenant's one-year membership, that tenant's membership shall also terminate. River Retreat may transfer the remaining term of the terminated one-year membership to a new tenant (pro rata).
  8. YMCA memberships are perpetual. At the end of the 12 month membership term, the tenant must submit a new form of payment.

*  For new memberships only. Tenants with a previous membership to the Alleghany Highlands YMCA are not eligible.

Reach New Heights

The YMCA's Wellness Center has a variety of weights, weight-training equipment and other exercise tools aimed at toning, sculpting and improving your overall health and appearance.


The YMCA's 37,000-square-foot facility sets on approximately 15 acres of land, ideally situated between Covington and Clifton Forge. The nearby Alleghany Regional Commerce Center continues to grow with exciting new employment opportunities becoming available on a regular basis. Of course, many of these new workers need a place to work and play, so this arrangement between the YMCA and River Retreat can certainly fill that void.

Enjoy the Leg Work

Anyone peddling or stepping into the YMCA's Wellness Center can't help but notice the beautiful view of the mountains across the Jackson River through the bank of large windows that adorn the front of the facility.


Enjoy making new friends, whether you're young or young-at-heart!
