Free 3-day guest pass at Y-Branch
Visit the YMCA Youngsville Branch (80 Ford Street, next to Island Park) and receive a 3-day free guest pass. What a great way to learn about all the classes that are offered at the Youngsville Y branch. Now all Youngsville Branch fitness classes will be on a five-week schedule (except for spin-only classes) and you don’t have to be a Y member to take a class. 2020 Winter five-week sessions are Jan. 6 to Feb. 8 (but some spaces are still available) and Feb. 10 to March 14 (member registration begins Jan 29, open registration begins Feb 3).
It is also possible to “drop-in” for a class, but calling ahead is recommended to make sure there’s room as class size may be limited due to equipment needs (814-802-1618).
Classes offered for the 2020 Winter sessions include: Baby & Me Stretch and Flex, Suspension Training, S-I-T (Sweat w/Intentions for Transformation), Spin & Tone, Pound Fitness, Reading & Riding (targeting youth participation, ages 12-17), and more. Detailed class descriptions and dates, cost options, links, and more are offered on Youngsville Library’s webpage at YoungsvilleLibrary.org (community information tab/Youngsville YMCA page) or call the Youngsville Branch at (814) 802-1618 during business hours.
