Whether you’re looking for the challenge of BOOT CAMP & RELENTLESS classes, the fun and vigor of ZUMBA or the serenity of YOGA, the YMCA of Central Ohio has a group fitness class that suits your goals. Best of all, most Group classes are included in your membership!
Our strength training sessions combine the workout benefits of the weight floor with the motivation and positive atmosphere of a group fitness class. Our Group Fitness Instructors will help you sculpt a lean, strong body. Regardless of your experience level and personal schedule, we offer a session that fits your needs.
Our classes welcome everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience. The whole system of yoga is built on three main structures: exercise, breathing and meditation. Your instructor will guide you in connecting mind, body and breath using a sequence of physical movements and postures, plus breathing techniques for a clear, bright mind and a strong, capable body. (Beginner to Advanced)
Low-Impact and Beginner-friendly classes
Maybe you're new to exercise. Perhaps you're recovering from an injury or surgery or simply want a gentler approach to fitness. That's where these classes enter the picture. Our Group Fitness Instructors will customize each class according to its participants' needs. Your Y membership includes unlimited access to hundreds of these beginner-friendly group fitness classes each week.
Indoor cycling utilizes stationary bikes to focus on endurance, strength, intervals, high intensity and recovery. Instructors simulate hill-climbing, sprints, and races for a fantastic cardiovascular workout. Get prepared for the workout of your life. Water and towels are a must!
Perfect for everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
Pilates is a mat-based, full-body experience focused on the principles of core muscular strength, increased flexibility, breath control and proper body alignment to improve posture. Each class is different to insure that the body is challenged in new ways, but simple choreography and clear instruction makes this class accessible to both beginners or those who exercise regularly.

We offer a variety of Cardio and Combination fitness classes that help strengthen your heart and lungs, build muscle and endurance while burning calories at a high rate. With so many classes to choose from, you’ll never run out of ways to keep your body moving and your heart pumping.
