Group Fitness

We offer over 100 classes per week as part of our free drop-in Group Fitness offerings. Our Y is proud to have such a diverse selection of high quality offerings and some of the best instruction in the area. The classes cover many different disciplines from strength training and cardiovascular exercise to mind-body and water exercise─ there is something for everyone. The New Canaan Y also partners with MOSSA, a leader in providing branded group exercise programs. The MOSSA group fitness programs are carefully designed to deliver a simple, fun, and effective social exercise experience independent of barriers like gender, age, or fitness level. Our Y is proud to be the only facility in this area to offer five of their programs including Group Power®, Group Kick®, Group Blast®, Group Core® and Group Active®. We have three beautiful centers where we conduct our programs. All of our classes are taught by Y staff who have been certified in their respective class disciplines and are among the most caring, experienced, and high quality professionals in the area. More information about our instructors can be accessed on our Wellness Staff Bios page. Y Group Fitness classes are open to all Y members 15 years of age and older as part of your membership. Children 12 -14 years of age may attend class with a parent with the exception of Group Power. No advance sign-ups are required for classes with the exception of spinning classes where prior sign up is highly recommended.
