EAST ORANGE/ORANGE, NJ — The Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges announces an upgrade to its virtual on-demand platform for members that matches their on-the-go lifestyles and puts healthy living at the center of 2021. YMCA360 is a 360-degree seamless Y experience on mobile devices, TV and web. It is now included free with every active membership at our Greater Bergen, Sussex County, Wayne and West Essex branches.

With YMCA360, healthy living for people of all ages and activity levels is possible anytime, anywhere. The robust digital experience combines immersive, healthy living with the values of the YMCA in a transformational presentation utilizing best-in-class people, programs and systems delivering the ultimate connected community. 

More than 300 on-demand exercise classes in cardio, weight training, yoga and pilates, and more are accessible 24/7 to provide another way to engage with the Y from home or when a branch isn’t nearby. New content will be added weekly.

“We recognize how important it is for our members to get fit or learn a new skill at their own pace and comfort level, and on a schedule that fits their lifestyle. With programs that exercise both the mind and body, YMCA 360 is an incredible value add for members of all ages, and we’re excited to offer it to our communities,” said Richard K. Gorab, President and CEO of the Metro YMCA of the Oranges.
