Where do I find class reservations?

Currently, all of our classes require reservations.  Choose the “Book Now” option under the class details.  Simply click “Book Now” and confirm, and your spot will be reserved.  You can cancel your reservation just as simply.

How do I see the group exercise schedule for other branches?

Under the filters bar, you can see classes by location.  Select your the branches set as your “Favorites”, nearby your current location, or simply tap one or more from a list of YMCA locations.  Save your selections and they’ll remain there until you change it.

Where do I see hours of operation?

Touch the top left icon listing your initials, and choose “Locations”.  The “Hours” tab is located beside the “Location” tab at the top, just under the branch name.  Scroll down to see “Child Watch” and “Holiday Hours” for this location.  Use the search magnifying glass in the upper right to search other locations the same way.
