INDOOR AND OUTDOOR GROUP EXERCISE
Registration is not required for indoor or outdoor group exercise classes. To participate in a class, just go to the center and scan in. You’ll be given a token for your class. Take the token to your instructor and drop it in the container. Easy as that!
Tokens are distributed no earlier than 30 minutes before class. To see what indoor and outdoor group ex classes are available, check your center's online schedule below.
GROUP EXERCISE GUIDELINES
- Please do not attend class if you are not feeling well.
- Tokens are distributed no earlier than 30 minutes before each class
- Indoor class sizes can accommodate no more than 20 participants (depending on the size of the room).
- Effective 11/18/20: While in our family center Ys and Y swim centers, all individuals must wear a mask fully covering their nose and mouth at all times, including during cardio exercise - without exceptions, unless you are in the swimming pool or the shower. For outdoor activities such as outdoor group exercise, masks are not required as long as adequate social distancing is possible.
We understand that this is somewhat stricter than our previous policy, which was consistent with state requirements, but we believe that it is the right thing to do at this time to protect the health of our members and associates. For more information concerning mask use, please read our Letter from the CEO or view our Frequently Asked Questions.
- Due to safety precautions, we are unable to provide fitness mats at this time. Please bring your own mat, towel and water bottle.
- Please follow space allocations (social distancing) set by instructors.
- Classes range from 30-60 minutes long.
- After your class ends, we ask that you please depart immediately so the next class can arrive without overcrowding.
- Outdoor classes are weather-permitting. For the safety of our instructors and members, outdoor group exercise classes will be cancelled if the "real feel" temperature is 32-degrees Fahrenheit or below. The "real feel" temperature factors in wind chill. If we need to cancel an outdoor class, a text alert will be sent out. Please OPT-IN TO "OUTSIDE GROUP EX" TEXT ALERTS HERE for the center(s) you attend. If A.M. classes are cancelled, a text will be sent by 7am the morning of classes. If evening classes are cancelled, a text will be sent by 3pm the same day.
