Strengthening Community

Group Exercise at the Capital District YMCAHelping people is what we’re all about at the Y, and has been from the start. We strengthen the foundations of community by nurturing the potential in every child, by promoting healthy living, and by giving back to our community.

At the Y, we are so much more than a gym. We are a cause. And our cause is strengthening community. Check out our current program offerings and register today.
