Make exercise a family affair! Many of our group exercise classes are now "family friendly" and open to parents and children to enjoy together. Zumba, yoga, hip hop, and many other fun classes will get the entire family moving and shaking. To see which classes are family friendly, select Find Your Y above, then click Schedules and look for the notation indicating the class is open to all ages.
Unlike many other exercise centers, the YMCA's Wellness Center areas are open to children ages 10 and up when accompanied by a parent or guardian. All children under age 16 must complete a Wellness Orientation prior to using the Wellness Center. This free class includes safety information, proper use of machines, benefits of exercise and healthy eating, and more. To sign up, see a member of the Wellness Center staff.
Get a workout while your kids age 7 and under have a ball in the PlayCenter. All of our YMCA family branches offer free child watch while you exercise for up to 2 hours (you must remain in the facility while your child is in the PlayCenter). Selected YMCAs also have youth fitness centers, teen centers, and play areas for children 8 and up.
Parent / Child Classes
YMCAs offer parent / child swim lessons for children ages 6 to 36 months. Many facilities also offer toddler movement, yoga, tumbling and music classes to help you and your little one enjoy time together. To see details of programs offered at your facility, select Find Your Y above.
