Signing Up for Group Exercise Classes

What You Need to Know to Join a In-Person Classes and Lap Swim

Registration is now required for all Group Exercise Classes. Registration will open the day before a class is offered.

We are preparing to reopen. In the meantime, please become familiar with our new class registration process.


Where to Register

Register for Group Exercise Classes through ‘Schedules’ on the YMCA of Greater Rochester app or right here on our website.

To sign up using our app, select the “Schedule” tile in the top left corner. Or, to sign up using our website, click the “Schedule” tab at the top of the page and select your preferred branch.


Create Your Account

When registering for the first time, you will need to create a new account. This account is separate from your YMCA Membership account and is only used to register for Group Exercise Classes or personal training. We suggest using the same email and password as your YMCA Membership account.

Create your account by selecting the “Login | Register” option, or you will be prompted to log in or create an account during registration.


Register for Classes

After you have created your new account you can begin the registration process. PLEASE NOTE: registration will open the day before a class is offered.

If registration is open, you will see a blue “Register” button to the right of the class.

To register, select the “Register” button. A box will pop up, prompting you to hit “NEXT.” Once you have hit “NEXT,” you will be signed up for the class.

Lap Swim will look a little different. You will need to select “View Details” from the schedule, or click the Book Appointment link on the top of the schedule page. From here you will select the exact lane and time.

To see all the classes that you have signed up for, you can select the icon that looks like an outline of a person. If you find that you have signed up for the wrong class, you can hit the “cancel” button. You can cancel a class for any reason up to one-hour prior to the start of class. If you do not plan on attending class, please cancel your spot so that another member may participate.


Virtual Classes

During our closure, we began offering virtual classes. View past virtual classes here.


In-Person Classes

We are excited to begin In-Person Classes as part of our reopening. Limited Group Exercise Classes will be offered on YMCA property with social distancing requirements to maintain no person-to-person physical contact.
