YMCA OF PUEBLO

Healthy Living

Wellness options for EVERYBODY.

The YMCA of Pueblo is a charitable organization, so we ensure everybody has the opportunity to pursue their own fitness goals, regardless of their current fitness level OR ability to pay. 

We know that staying healthy involves more than working out. Our programs and services focus on the entire family's health, while providing a variety of fitness and wellness programs to serve a person's unique needs.

At the Y, we provide educational programs to promote prevention and healthier decisions so you can know the best ways to stay fit.

Group Fitness

Group fitness at the Y is an opportunity for people of all fitness levels to maintain their level of fitness or push far beyond their goals. We have low-impact programs for people just beginning or who are looking for a gentle workout, and we have high-intensity workouts for athletes and people looking to push their limits. Come in today!

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is composed of gentle, graceful movements linked together in a continuous, smooth flowing sequence. Part martial art, part exercise program and part meditation, Tai Chi – when practiced regularly – can increase flexibility, build strength, improve balance and coordination, relieve stress and enhance concentration.

Y Firm

This group exercise class combines strength training with cardio, and focuses on building core strength and tone.

Basic Sculpt

In our Basic Sculpt class we focus on a strength training workout that combines flexibility and cardiovascular conditioning while using various weight and resistant equipment. Great for beginning and intermediate fitness levels.

Metabolic Conditioning

The words “metabolic conditioning” are thrown around quite a bit in the fitness industry. In one setting, it may mean something as simple as intervals while in a different gym it may consist of a complex circuit involving free-weights, rope slams, and medicine ball work.

This interval style group fitness class will push you as far as you want to go. Members often compare this to Crossfit. We agree, but it's more adaptable to different abilities. It's also one of our most popular fitness classes. Come try it out!

Y Cycle

Increase your stamina, strength, and cardio health with Y cycle! This class is a great opportunity for improvement as a novice cyclist or for the seasoned athlete.
