It's here ... YWellness 24/7

We're excited to introduce a new virtual exercise class option exclusively for YMCA members. And it's FREE with your membership!

YWellness 24/7 features hundreds of classes taught by YMCA instructors throughout the nation -- including some of our very own DMYMCA instructors! You can live stream classes, or take them on-demand, whenever it's convenient for you. Cardio, strength, dance, yoga, barre, pilates, cycling, running, tai chi, mediation  ... it's all here. There are workouts targeting specific muscle groups, like abs, glutes or arms ... prenatal and postnatal workouts, workouts for those over 50, workouts for those with chronic health conditions ... even workouts you can do with your dog! (How fun is that?) Plus educational videos on nutrition, pain management, brain health, stress management, sleep, financial well-being, parenting and more health- and wellness-related topics.  

Getting started is as simple as visiting YWellness 24/7 to create your account using the Burnalong app. Be sure to choose YMCA of Greater Des Moines as your Y to gain FREE access to the YWellness 24/7 library of streaming and on-demand classes.

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.
