Group Exercise

Whether you're new to exercise or getting back into it, group exercise is a great way to get moving, make friends and stay motivated.
Athletic Conditioning, Interval Training, QuickFit and Step classes are all fantastic ways to keep your exercise routine exciting. A schedule of all the Y's Group Exercise classes can be found here or sign-up to receive the Morrison Family and Ballantyne Village YMCA Group Exercise schedule emailed to you monthly!
