For more than 150 years, YMCAs have provided health and fitness programs as an integral part of their mission. YMCA programs emphasize preventive health care, encourage healthy lifestyles, offer rehabilitative services and are accessible regardless of an individual’s ability to pay set fees.
YMCA aerobics classes are varied to give participants an opportunity to set their own pace while experiencing a variety of styles, pace and personality. Each class, however, accomplishes the goals of cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, strength and toning. Listed below are the classes offered. All aerobics are free and unlimited to YMCA members. Non-members may pay for a daily all-day pass to the YMCA for $10.
The Cardiovascular Room features treadmills, upright bikes, XRide recumbent bikes, Cybex Arc Trainers and Precor ellipticals. There are four televisions to watch while you complete your workout. Eleven of the machines are fitted with transmitters which allow you to plug in your headphones and listen to the TV. This room is open during regular YMCA hours, seven days a week. No one under 14 without a HYPE Certification will be allowed in the cardio room.
The weight room is used by both men and women and is designed for those 14 and older. (Children 12-13 who have earned their HYPE Certification and have checked out a lanyard from the front may use the weight room and cardio room). The YMCA offers several different types of machines including: abs, back, leg press, leg extension, chest press and hamstring. The weight room features top-of-the-line, rubber-encased dumbbells and plates and is open during regular YMCA hours.
