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.

Detailed Class Information

For detailed information on class schedules, location addresses and class-specific registration information, click below for the class you want to learn more about!

We recommend that you wear active gear: shorts, leggings, t-shirts, and/or tank tops are all light-weight and breathable clothing for our Group Fitness Classes. You should have comfortable sneakers to 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!
