Bringing the YMCA to your home
There are now a number of engaging ways to connect with the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA.
Exercise videos just for you
Do you miss your favorite FSPY classes and instructors? We are adding new videos to our YouTube channel all the time. 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.
You also can access YMCA 360, a new virtual initiative led by Ys across the country. It’s your favorite classes with top instructors now available online. This site will continue to be updated with more content.
Facebook group for health and fitness
The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA has launched the Healthy at Home Facebook Group to give you regular wellness and fitness updates as well as virtual classes and a forum to have your health and fitness questions answered.
Please note: As of July 13, our virtual classes will be open to active, full-facility Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA members only. Registration will be 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 now have our 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’re adding new recipes all the time, so keep checking back.
Each Friday on our Facebook page, we are launching a new family-friendly activity with our new #FitFamilyFriday.
