Outdoor Fitness Classes at the Y

We’re always looking for new ways to serve our community, and that’s why we’re excited to safely welcome our members back to the Y for outdoor fitness classes! At this time, outdoor classes are available for active members, ages 18+ only.

If you placed your YMCA membership on hold, please reactivate your account to participate in these outdoor fitness classes.
