The COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably changed the way we live, work and exercise. But the fundamental benefits of exercise for physical and emotional well-being remain the same. And, they are even more important during these challenging times.
The Westfield Area YMCA has always adapted to the changing needs of the community and now offers both in-person and virtual fitness classes with options to accommodate a wide range of fitness needs and levels.
Current class offerings include: Ageless Grace, Barre, Body Sculpt, Cardio Sculpt, Cycle & Strength, Dance Fitness, Delay the Disease: Exercise to Fight Parkinson’s Symptoms, HIIT, Kickboxing, Pilates, Project Healthy Bones, R.I.P.P.E.D., Senior Fitness, TRX/Sculpt, Yoga and Zumba!
At the Y, the health and safety of participants and staff is the #1 priority. All facilities and programs meet or exceed state and CDC health and safety guidelines including social distancing, small group sizes, face coverings and temperature checks. In-person fitness classes are available inside the facility and outside, weather permitting. Masks are worn at all times indoors, and reservations are required for classes in order to maintain social distance. Virtual classes do not require ongoing registration — participants who register once will receive weekly emails with Zoom links to all classes. To learn more, contact Greg Hatzisavvas at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-301-YMCA (9622) x 251.
The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Financial assistance for YMCA programs and memberships is available for those who qualify.
