Online Fitness Classes


Our online fitness classes are a flexible option that meets a multitude of needs. Whether you want to supplement your in-person workouts to pack an extra punch to your routine, or you prefer doing all of your fitness from the comfort of your home, we’ve got what you’re looking.

Join us for 45 minute classes, available every day through the Sweat For Good App. With more than 50 online fitness classes every week, you’re sure to find exactly what your heart desires and your body craves!

We have a wide range of classes to choose from including:

Barre
Train like a dancer in this ballet-inspired fusion class that mixes Pilates, ballet, and muscle conditioning. Using a chair at home (instead of a ballet barre) you’ll work through moves that create lean muscles — all set to an upbeat playlist that will inspire you to push through that #BarreBurn.

Bootcamp
In this intense circuit, you'll work through different exercises that test your strength and keep your heart rate high. You'll use body weight, and some equipment to get through the interval-based workouts.

MuscleFit
Your certified instructor will guide you through moves designed to condition all your major muscle groups.

YMCA Arriba
This fusion of Latin, Bollywood, and belly dance moves helps you build cardiovascular endurance, but feels like a big, fun dance party.

YMCA TotalFit
TotalFit is a brand new fitness class that combines 15 minutes of cardio, 15 minutes of total body strength and 15 minutes of floor-based exercises to strengthen the thighs, glutes and core.

YMCA Yoga
Whether you’re only here for the shavasana, or you’re looking to amp up your practice, our wide variety of classes can help you deepen your mind-body connection and live in the moment. By flowing through classic yoga poses, relaxation exercises, and basic breathing techniques, your instructor will help you unplug, stretch out, and feel at home in your body.

Virtual Children's Programs

We have the perfect way to keep your kids active and engaged all winter long. Virtual programs are available to a wide range of age groups from 2 years old to 17 years old, and we even have programs that the whole family can enjoy.

  • You’ll notice that our equipment is at least 3 meters apart. That gives you plenty of space to yourself!

  • Classes formerly held in smaller studios have moved to larger spaces, such as our gymnasium, to give you even more space
  • Staggered class start times help us manage traffic flow.
