Sensible, Motivating, Awesome, Realistic, Terrific!



Most classes at the YMCA will offer instruction to reach a wide range of fitness levels.  The participant must still make all the proper choices, during each exercise, to insure a safe and effective workout!  Choosing the right class format and style of the instructor can be very helpful for finding the right fit.
