Stop waiting for tomorrow and take action today! For the new year, the Summit Area YMCA is pleased to bring you new programs, new fitness equipment, and new classes to make your fitness experience better than ever!  Even more exciting, we have put together seven tips to help you be the best YOU in 2019 and bring those goals to fruition. 

GOAL 1: START OUT ON THE RIGHT FOOT 

On day one of the new year (or the eve before) members can come to the Summit Area YMCA for a New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day workout.

You can find the schedules to the branches here. In addition to classes, our facilities and equipment will be open and available for use during the New Year holiday. 

Stay consistent in the New Year by keeping track of your workouts with our handy Y Mobile App on Apple Store or Google Playstore or with Activtrax, our digital workout planner!

 

GOAL 2: work on POWER & STRENGTH

At the Y, we offer high intensity classes so you can push yourself harder than ever, and take your conditioning to the next level -- building lean muscle, while getting into great shape. Consider:

• Les Mills Body Pump & CXWORX
• Martial Arts & Combat

• TRX
• and many more

 

GOAL 3: develop ENDURANCE
