AT HOME FITNESS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
We know how important exercising is for both mental and physical health; and with the uncertainties regarding the length of closures for facilities like the Y, we know that it is even more important now than ever before. That is why we have compiled a few options for you to stay active right in the comfort of your own home!
VIRTUAL MINOT YMCA INSTRUCTOR CLASSES
We want to celebrate our amazing instructors! A few of them have agreed to record or present live classes via our website, YouTube, and Facebook. Stay tuned on our social media pages for updates on when the next live class will be! Want to workout on your own time? We are continuing to update and add videos to our YouTube page!! Take a look at our YouTube video feed here. Also, many of our instructors also have their own fitness pages where they have been posting workouts! Search for your favorite instructor on social media to get their updates!
YMCA 360 is designed to help you and your family engage with the YMCA virtually from the comfort of home. Popular group exercise classes like boot camp, barre, and yoga taught by YMCA instructors from all around the country are available now at no cost with more content on the way in April. You can find all the classes online here.
LES MILLS AT HOME WORKOUTS
Just like the Virtual Les Mills classes we offer at the facility, this temporary site allows free access to 100+ workouts during the COVID-19 disruptions. There is something for everyone from high intensity interval training designed to improve strength and fitness fast, dance fitness workouts, the martial arts inspired BODYCOMBAT Invincible program through to mindfulness practices to slow the stream of thoughts that can cause our stress. The BORN TO MOVE children's workouts will get everyone from 4 to 16 years moving, and the post-partum series will help new mothers get back to exercise safely. You can find all the classes online here.
LIFE FITNESS DIGITAL COACH
Much of our exercise equipment is purchased through Life Fitness, a leader in the fitness industry. They have launched their digital coach to provide body weight workouts; strength, flexibility and restore exercises; as well as workouts with small equipment to those at home. The best part is that you don't need access to their fitness equipment to preform any of the exercises! Sign up for a free account online here.
For our Active Older Adults missing their Silversneakers classes, you can stream videos right from a Facebook account online here. For those that want even more workouts to choose from, check out SilverSneakers On-Demand! If you are a member, just log in to your online profile available here and get moving!
