Staying Active with the Y at Home

Even though we know we cannot serve you in person right now, we are still committed to helping you continue to reach your health goals.

We have a number of at-home options available for many of the classes that you enjoy here with us every day.

Virtual YMCA Check-In

It’s so important to stick to your regular routine as much as possible while at home and checking into the Y is no different. We ask that you please “check in” before completing any of the workouts below. This is especially crucial for our insurance based members, be sure to check in everyday and utilize our fitness videos and tutorials!

If you have more than one Y member in your household, you can each “scan in” individually by filling out your own form with your own separate bar code each day.
