Bringing the YMCA to your home
Looking to supplement your in-person YMCA activities, or are still planning your return to our Y? We offer exercise videos, fitness challenges, cooking inspiration, family-friendly activities and more all at your fingertips.
Exercise videos just for you
Do you miss your favorite FSPY classes and instructors? We have a collection of videos on our YouTube channel. Current playlists include: yoga, Pilates, high intensity workouts, chair-based exercises for active older adults, workouts for all levels, youth and family activities and cooking and gardening.
Facebook group for health and fitness
The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA has a Healthy at Home Facebook Group to give you regular wellness and fitness updates as well as information on our virtual and outdoor group exercise classes, which are open to active Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA members. Registration is required for each class. You can learn more here.
Challenges to get you moving
Our Facebook page is a great resource for health, fitness and family content such as our daily Y Morning Workout At Home, which utilizes our ABCs of the YMCA letter sheet. You can download the letter sheet here and get creative with your own words as well!
Are you up for the challenge? We have an At-Home Challenge card. You can download a printable version here. Complete all the boxes for the grand prize – a happy, healthier you!
We also have our new Push Up Challenge to last you a whole month. Download a printable version here.
Cooking up inspiration
If you need some help at mealtime, try Donna’s Virtual Cookbook, recipes from our registered dietitian. Donna employs a “use what you have” mantra for minimal food waste.
We also have activities the whole family can enjoy. Visit our Family at Home website page here to learn more!
