Get fit and have a blast doing it at The Y

There are plenty of things that can feel like a barrier to exercise – age, fitness level, experience, coordination, flexibility… but none of them should hold you back! Across our fitness centres in Auckland, we have all manner of group fitness classes to suit every ability. There’s no time like the present to work on your wellbeing – and physical fitness is a big part of that.

From low impact tai chi and yoga, through to high intensity step, spin and boxing, you’ll find a group exercise class that will match both what your body can do and what you want to do. Get your groove on with Zumba, work on control with Pilates, or get wet and wild with Aqua Energy.

Each class is led by an instructor who is well-versed in the activity they coach – but additionally, all Y (formerly YMCA) instructors are passionate about helping you get the results you’re after, as well as making sure that everyone has a really good time in our group fitness classes across Auckland.
