Health & Wellness

Westside YMCA

Adults

At the YMCA, we offer many opportunities for you to get in shape, feel your best and enrich your life. Group exercise classes, personal training, and FitStart are just a few of the ways the YMCA can help you achieve your fitness goals. We also offer CPR, First Aid and other classes designed to teach students how to recognize life-threatening emergencies, provide basic life support, and obtain certification.

Our classes range from yoga and Pilates, to spin (biking) classes and boxing, to step and circuit training. We offer several types of machines to help you in your cardiovascular workout and at least one resistance (weight) machine for each of your major muscle groups. We have free weights, benches and stability balls so you can customize your regimen to your own program and goals.

Youth and Teens
