Your YMCA membership just got bigger and better! We are adding more classes to our fitness schedule through a virtual fitness platform. You can access Fitness on Demand classes while you are at the Y at no additional cost. In Studios 2 and 3 we will be streaming Fitness on Demand virtual fitness classes during unscheduled times. You have more class options and more times to take classes, which all adds up to more fitness for you. (Did we mention it’s free for members?)
Don’t worry – we aren’t getting rid of any of our instructors! We highly value them, their expertise and the personal touches they bring to every class. Fitness on Demand is simply a way to give you more choices by offering classes during times we don’t currently have classes scheduled. We will continue to offer our specialty classes with instructors, and you’ll register for these as you always have, but you can also take a virtual class for no additional cost through Fitness on Demand.
In addition to these virtual classes, you can download the Fitness on Demand app and participate in a variety of workouts. These workouts are also free, and you can access them on your phone in the Cardio Strength Center, the indoor track above the pool, the Circuit Training Room and the Lower Level Mini Gym.
When Studio 2 and Studio 3 are not in use, you will be able to enter and participate in a virtual class. These video classes will start at a scheduled time, just as a real live fitness class would, but without a live instructor. If you are new to exercise, these virtual classes are a great way to try out a class! For regular exercisers, these classes are a great way to add variety to your exercise plan and to stay on track during the times you can’t make your regular fitness class. Check here for the on-demand class schedules.
Studio 2 Fitness: Classes like boot camp, core, Pilates, yoga and more will be available in Studio 2.
Studio 3 Spin: Spin classes like Climbing in France or Top of the Rockies can be found in Studio 3.
If you prefer to exercise on your own but would like motivation or instruction, the Fitness on Demand app may be exactly what you want. You can use the free version of the app to access fitness options within the Cardio Strength Center at the Y. If you want to purchase additional content you can, but it is not necessary to purchase anything in order to be able to access On Demand workouts while you are in our Lebanon facility.

We hope you will take advantage of these virtual classes and workouts. More fitness classes and different workouts will be added in the future, so keep checking back for new things to try.
