The Y aims to improve the nation's health and well-being by providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce risk for disease and help others reclaim their health. These programs and everything else the Y does are in service of making us—our Ys and our communities—better.

The result is a country that values health and communities that support healthy choices. 

Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y goes beyond just working out. In addition to fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.

Group Exercise.

The YMCA Group Exercise Programs include group exercise formats that are professionally designed and tested to deliver a fun and effective social exercise experience for everyone. These programs include highly trained instructors and motivating music to ensure a one of a kind exercise experience that will have you coming back for more.

Masks are required at all times during group exercise classes. Reservations are also required for each class; use our Reserve a Workout portal. Physical distancing is also in effect so class sizes are limited.
