Become Your Best Self

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Group exercise will get you connected in the Y community! Get a fun, energetic workout while you move to the beat in the camaraderie of others. Members are encouraged to work at your own pace and, of course, have fun! 

Check out the different group fitness classes you can enjoy by becoming a Y member!

Switching back and forth rapidly between the three vastly different disciplines, it keeps your body guessing, your mind excited, and your heart pumping. It’s the workout that doesn’t feel like work while you’re doing it, though you’ll definitely feel it the next day. Barefoot training is the preferred method.
What is PILOXING Fitness

Piloxing® Barre: Pilates + Boxing + Burn. This game-changing program still takes place at the barre, but shifts between the slow leg work that improves balance, leans muscles, and strengthens joints, and the intense arm work that that builds strong arms and shoulders, increases power, and gets your heart pumping. It’s not the barre workout you heard about, it’s the one you can’t wait to talk about.
