Some individuals can get on a treadmill or cycle to work up a sweat without a problem. But some people need a little more excitement to get their blood pumping. Les Mills provides that kind of workout with its high-energy music and choreographed routines. Join in the fun, work up a sweat and try the Y’s new BODYPUMP classes.

TRX provides a maximum workout that leverages one’s own body weight and gravity to build power, strength, flexibility, balance and mobility. This new category of exercise can be adapted to accommodate all fitness levels.


Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years across the world because it’s a great way to build strength, stamina and flexibility, without putting undue stress on your body. By meditating, focusing on your breath and stretching your muscles, a yoga practice also cultivates a wonderful sense of inner peace and serenity. With a variety of classes from beginner to more advanced, our Y makes it possible for everyone to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of this practice.


Zumba fuses Latin, hip-hop and international music rhythms with easy-to-follow moves to create a dynamic fitness program that will blow you away. The routines feature interval-training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat.
