Fitness at the Y

History of Fitness at the Y

The first YMCA buildings constructed with gymnasiums opened in 1869. In 1881, Boston YMCA staffer Robert J. Roberts coined the term “body building” and developed exercise classes that anticipated today’s fitness workouts.   Roberts organized exercise regimes that morphed over the years into the fitness classes of today.

Wellness Centers

Enjoy working out at one of our 3 Wellness Centers at the Lansdowne, Ridley, or Springfield YMCA.  Each of our locations has received new equipment over the past 5 years.  The Y is following all the protocols to keep you and staff safe.  Machines and equipment are spread out and everyone in the building must wear masks at all times.

Group Exercise

The Y offers a variety of group exercise classes at each of its locations everyday.  You can find a group class at your YMCA by clicking the button below to see what classes are offered on what day.  We also offer virtual group exercise classes as well.
