Good things happen when everyone in our community feels a sense of belonging and connection. That’s why for over 160 years, the YMCA has been bringing Canadians together.

A vibrant, healthy community offers opportunities for everyone. At the YMCA, we offer a variety of programs to our community to ensure that everyone’s needs are met.

Our Community Outreach offers:

The YMCA has something for everyone with our YMCA fitness classes spanning a range of interests, activities and abilities.  Classes are held at a wide range of locations across greater Halifax and Dartmouth.

What to Wear

We recommend that you dress comfortably, wearing loose- fitting, light-weight clothing for our Group Fitness Classes. You should have comfortable sneakers or shoes with non-slip soles which will help absorb impact during your participation. Please be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated during class.

For aquatic programs, a bathing suit is recommended but shorts and a close fitting t-shirt can be worn instead. Loose clothing can be cumbersome and restrict movement while in the water. Water shoes are also recommended!
