Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
The Sewickley YMCA invites you to join our Wellness Reloaded 2021 challenge! This virtual 8-week wellness program is aimed at improving individuals’ well-being through exercise, healthy eating, and behavior changes. For any questions, contact Laura Haddox at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Group Exercise Reservations
All group exercise classes require online registration for each class and members can register for classes three days in advance.
We are evaluating the safety of group sports that involve close contact, and are seeking more health guidance. This includes soccer, basketball, racquetball and volleyball. For the time being, these group sports will not be permitted.
The use of the outdoor courts will be limited to members only, and the courts will be accessible by the key during the hours of operation. Members can reserve a court in advance online. We encourage all racquet sports players to only handle their own tennis or paddle balls and discourage social gatherings. The Community Activity Center will not be open for player use.
Virtual Parkinson Classes
As we are all navigating these challenging times, we remain committed to your health. We hope this new resource will allow you the ability to try new classes online released by the Parkinson Foundation.
Personal Fitness Training
Work with a YMCA certified trainer that can motivate you by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability. Trainers will evaluate your strengths and areas for improvement to ensure that the proper training program is implemented to increase overall health & wellness. During the personal training session, you will be instructed on form and technique, and lifestyle habits while helping to keep you motivated and accountable.
