Find Your Fit
Fitness classes are a fun, interactive way to gain strength, endurance and flexibility. Choose from more than 100 classes offered at the Y each week -- early morning, over the noon hour, after work and on weekends, to accommodate busy schedules. Most classes are included with your Y membership and there's no need to register — just drop in whenever it's convenient for you!
Our trained instructors guide you through the exercises and offer modifications for all ability levels. No matter what type of class you choose—cardio, strength, yoga, Pilates, cycling, water exercise, dance or combination classes—you'll find a supportive community to help you along your fitness journey. We even offer virtual classes for members who prefer the comfort and convenience of working out at home.
