Work out from home with the Y’s new Live Online Fitness Classes!

At the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago, we’re committed to being the trusted place to keep your family healthy, active, and safe—even during the pandemic. Because of this, we’re excited to announce the Association’s newest fitness offering: Live Online Fitness Classes!

Since in-person fitness classes are currently suspended due to statewide Tier 3 mitigations, Live Online Fitness Classes make it possible for you to work out with your favorite Y fitness instructors in a new, convenient format. Starting Friday, January 8, you’ll be able to enjoy Zumba, Pilates, cardio, strength training, and more from the comfort of your own home.

Here’s how the Y’s Live Online Classes will work:

Live Online Fitness Classes are free for active members! If you’d like to reactivate your membership or sign up for a membership with our limited-time $0 joiner fee, call Member Services at 773.905.5115.

No matter which YMCA you visit most frequently, you can join any of the Y of Metro Chicago’s Live Online Fitness Classes. We’ll feature instructors from several locations, bringing you a live virtual workout experience representing the diversity of our Association’s fitness community.

Classes will be held in a webinar format, meaning the instructor and others taking the class will NOT be able to see or hear you. For those new to fitness classes or uncomfortable in group settings, our Live Online Fitness Classes provide a low-pressure solution.

When you register for a class, you’ll receive a confirmation email. You’ll also receive an email with a Zoom link to the class before its start time. Simply click the link at your class’s scheduled time to join!

To kick off this exciting new offering, we’ll be hosting a Facebook Live yoga class with Becky Neal, Membership and Wellness Director at the Fry Family YMCA. Join us by tuning in to our Facebook page on Thursday, January 7 at 6pm CST!
