Group Fitness

Group fitness at the YMCA of Washington County, is one of many ways the Y supports members in achieving their health and wellness goals. The YMCA Group Fitness Programs improve health, encourage social interaction, offer motivating music to create one of the most enjoyable ways to move and feel great! Highly trained staff members lead the programs and often tailor them to the specific needs of the community.

There are multiple class formats that deliver a fun and effective exercise experience in a supportive group setting. Each has been professionally designed and tested through a comprehensive program development process, and all are continually refreshed so the programs evolve with the latest trends in group fitness and to keep you motivated and moving. Each of our three branches has a robust schedule of group fitness classes. The offerings vary by branch and schedules are updated weekly.
