Group Fitness

At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. 

The YMCA offers 100+ weekly group fitness classes for all ages, all levels and all interests. We teach real classes for real people, focusing on your optimal health. From spirit, mind and body classes such as yoga and BODYFLOW®, to high-intensity cardio and strength training such as Cycling and BODYPUMP®, we’ve got something for every body and every age. We hope you’ll find a class that’s fun, supportive, fits your schedule and keeps you moving. Classes are included in membership and are offered at both branches.

YMCA Group Fitness Classes are for ages 15+. Youth ages 12-14 can earn access into Group Fitness Classes within arms-length of a parent/guardian, or unsupervised after completing the Y’s Youth Exercise Concepts Course, which consists of a one-hour session with a fitness associate.

Class Descriptions:
Class Descriptions can be viewed on our mobile app, on the Fercho and Schlossman online Group Fitness schedules, or on our downloadable schedules. 

Power of 3:
At the Y, we believe in the “POWER OF 3”. We encourage you to try any new group fitness format three times before moving onto something different. It may take three times for your body to truly adjust and excel in a new class or form of exercise. Share with us on social media your experience in your favorite Group Fitness classes using #powerof3!
