Try the Y for Free this Summer!

With a newly renovated weight room and MindBody room perfect for Barre, Yoga and other group exercise classes, the Berkeley Heights YMCA is currently open to all with its facilities every Thursday this summer through the end of August 2016. Try any number of high energy, fun group exercise classes ranging from our popular Les Mills Body Pump, Cardio Blast, or All Terrain Cycling. For a more gentle, yet still challenging work out, try Barre Sculpt—or relax with Gentle Yoga, Balance Strength and Coordination, or the newest offering due to popular demand, Tai Chi.

Similarly, the Summit YMCA will be open and free to the public each Friday until the end of August. Friday group exercise offerings include Les Mills Body Pump, Les Mills GRIT, Indoor Rowing, Hot Primal Yoga, Barre Sculpt, Vinyasa Yoga, and Aikido to name a few. In addition to group exercise, the Y provides a state-of-the-art Wellness and Fitness Centers, 2 pools, gymnasium with full sized basketball court, rock wall, and more!

Adults over the age of 18 will be able to use the facility for the day’s entirety after signing in with the Member Services Desk at their designated branch. Photo identification and a signed guest waiver are required to gain access to the facility.

Membership will provide access to YMCA KidZone babysitting, special events and much more.
