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. 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.
