At the Y, teens can work on leadership skills, prep for college, play a sport, and give back through programs designed for them. We’re committed to empowering youth around lower Westchester and we are always seeking additional ways of meeting the needs in our community.
Group Exercise Classes
As a part of our membership perks, the New Rochelle YMCA offers over 30 group exercise classes each week. Teens can attend any of our classes in the evenings including boxing, MMA, Circuit Training, Hip Hop and more. All classes are designed to be approachable by beginners or challenging to experienced exercisers so no matter where you are on your path to fitness there is a class for you.

Youth ages 13 and up are permitted to work out in the facility without an adult being present. Before going to the weight room or cardio room we highly suggest that any new exercisers attend a circuit class or similar exercise class. This will help youth gain the fundamentals of exercise including proper form, posture and effective exercises for their goals.
