GROUP EXERCISE

There's no better way to maintain a healthy lifestyle than by working out with others in a group setting. Among our branches, we offer hundreds of opportunities each week to workout, stay moving and meet others.

Group fitness classes are an important part of your wellness experience at YMCA of Bucks County. At the Y, we offer guidance from certified instructors in a variety classes.

In Doylestown, Fairless Hills and Newtown and Quakertown, group exercise classes are offered in our studios and in our pools, while Warminster offers a variety of group exercise classes in our studios. Group exercise classes in all branches are free to members.
