Y Virtual Group Exercise Starts Now!
In addition to our robust schedule of safe, in-person group exercise classes, Y members now have the option to log in from home and participate in live-streaming or on-demand classes with our wonderful Y instructors!
First Thing's First: Get Access
You can only access this new benefit using the email address for your Y account. To ensure that current Y members can log into this new virtual member benefit, please call your Y CENTER to confirm your email address. Please Note: The same email address cannot be used for multiple people.
How to Log Into Virtual Group Exercise
WELCOME EMAIL: Y members with an accurate email address on file at the Y will receive a "welcome" email from the Y to log in and set a password for their new virtual account. Click the button in the welcome email, enter your email address for your Y account, create a password, and click SET PASSWORD. Viola!
You must first receive your welcome email in order to access virtual group exercise.
Please Note: If you do not receive "The Y in Central Maryland - Welcome" email, please check your spam or junk folders. You have 48 hours to click the button in the welcome email. If you miss this window of time, no worries -- just use the option below.
Y WEBSITE: You can log into virtual group exercise from our website if you have received the welcome email but did not create your virtual account password, or if you have forgotten your password. CLICK HERE, click FORGOT PASSWORD, enter the email address for your Y account, and click EMAIL LINK. You will receive an email prompting you to reset your password.
Two Ways to Participate
1. LIVE STREAM: Log in from home to participate in real-time live group exercise classes! You'll be able to identify these classes on our online schedules as they will include "virtual" in the class name.
2. ON DEMAND: A library of Y classes will be available online to log into anytime! Most live-streaming group exercise classes will be made available in our on-demand library once the live class is complete. Our library of on-demand classes will continually grow.
Please Note: Zumba and all Les Mills classes such as BODYPUMP, will only be available through live-streaming due to licensing restrictions.
Two Ways to Find Virtual Classes
1. (Recommended): Click the button below to search for classes directly on our virtual platform. Use the filter options on the left side to narrow your search. You will notice the only locations listed are the Dancel, Parkville and Pasadena Ys. Currently, virtual classes are only being streamed from these locations, however, instructors from other Y centers will also teach at these locations to create a mix of instructor-led virtual classes.
2. Virtual classes are also listed on the Dancel, Parkville and Pasadena online schedules (website and mobile app). Classes with “virtual” in the name will be live-streamed. For example, if “Everfit” is on the schedule, this is an in-person class. If “Everfit Virtual” is on the schedule, this is an in-person class that will also be live-streamed. Once the live stream recording is complete, it will become part of our virtual library of on-demand classes.
