Starting with Summer Session 2 on July 27 you can access Fitness on Demand classes in Studio 3 while you are at the Y at no additional cost. You'll have more class options and more times to take classes, which all adds up to more fitness for you. When Studio 3 is 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.
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.
Studio 3 On Demand Fitness: 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 in Studio 3. 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.

This easy one-pot pasta is the perfect choice for a busy weeknight. It's packed with protein and fiber and full of kid-friendly flavors that the whole family will love.
In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with the side of a spoon, until it is no longer pink, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook until they begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook it for another 30 seconds. Add the beans, corn, pasta, beef broth, tomato sauce, chili powder, and ground cumin. Stir well and then bring the mixture to a boil. Once it has reached a boil, reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed and the pasta is tender, between 12 and 14 minutes. Stir in the cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately topped with sour cream or store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
These sweet and tart Raspberry Oat Crumble Bars are loaded with fiber and surprisingly easy to make. They can be enjoyed for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or as a delicious dessert topped with some vanilla ice cream.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on both sides. In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the melted butter and mix until it is thoroughly combined. Transfer two-thirds of the oat mixture into the baking dish and press it down firmly to create a solid crust. Set it aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the raspberries, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Simmer, stirring often, until the raspberries have burst and the mixture begins to thicken up, 5 to 6 minutes. Pour the raspberry mixture over the oat base. Crumble the remaining oat mixture on top of the raspberry mixture in an even layer. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Allow the oat bars to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes and then in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes. Once they are completely set, cut them into squares. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
