WESTFIELD, NJ — The Westfield Area YMCA is once again inviting members of the community to enjoy its facilities and group fitness classes for free each Wednesday beginning Nov. 30 and ending Dec. 21.

The Y's main facility is located at 220 Clark Street in Westfield. Check in at the Welcome Center, then take advantage of free TRX classes, swim assessments, open gym/lap swim and racquetball times as well as the health and wellness facilities from 5 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. Tours will be available.

“The Westfield Area YMCA is more than gym and swim,” said Greg Hatzisavvas, Westfield Area YMCA senior director member and wellness engagement. “It’s a place where the community can come together to learn and develop healthy habits that include all areas of health and fitness. By offering Wellness Wednesdays, we hope it will provide an opportunity for an individual or family to take time to focus on their own well-being, especially around this busy time of the year.”
