ADULT GROUP FITNESS CLASSES

We have over 70 group fitness class options on our schedule each week and they are open to all levels of fitness and experience. If you are attending class for the first time please feel free to come a little bit early and the instructor will be more than happy to help you get set-up for class and demonstrate some of the basic moves you will see in class.  Youth must be 14 years old in order to attend group fitness classes.

It is important to note that all classes involving boxing bags, bikes or TRX straps (Cycling, Cyclebox, Kickboxing, TRX classes) require that you sign-up ahead of time to secure your spot in class as we have a limited number of bikes and bags available.  You can register for classes online by clicking on the button below.

All other classes on our schedule do not require sign-up and all you need to do is show up ready to get a great workout! The Y will provide all equipment needed for all classes including boxing gloves, yoga mats and free weights but you may bring your own equipment if you desire.
