Parkview Huntington Family YMCA is offering a release of “Premium Group” exercise classes to the community during an upcoming launch party on Saturday, Aug. 24.

The classes are choreographed by fitness companies such as Les Mills and Beachbody. Huntington YMCA instructors are trained and certified to teach these classes in a certain format.  The classes are tested and proven successful.

The Huntington YMCA is the only Y in this region that offers these specialized classes.

At this upcoming party, there will be four adult classes offered between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Adult classes are for ages 14 and older.  

The following new classes will be held: GRIT Strength at 8 a.m.; Body Combat at 8:45 a.m.; and P90X Live at 10 a.m. The RPM cycle class at 9:15 a.m. will be held in the Y cycle studio.  

There will also be one family class of Aqua Stand Up held in the pool at 10:30 a.m.  Aqua Stand Up Family is open to all ages, including children who are green-band swimmers.

Aqua Stand Up is a paddleboard class offered in the pool and involves balance and short bursts of exercise.

The launch party event on Aug. 24 is open to both members and non-members. Aqua Stand Up and RPM Indoor Cycling have limited space, so it is advised to call the YMCA to reserve a spot in these classes the day before the event at 359-9622.  

All group exercise classes will also be free during the entire week of Aug. 26.

Group premium class schedules and descriptions can be viewed on the Y website at www.huntingtony.org and can also be found on the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA Facebook Page.

Parkview Huntington Family YMCA is located at 1160W-500N, Huntington.
