We're Open!

The YWCA Fitness Center is OPEN! We are taking a series of health and safety precautions to protect our members and staff. Here's what you can expect:

New Hours- The Fitness Center will be open Monday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Entering and Exiting- You will come in through the front doors and stop at the front desk where you will have your temperature taken and answer a few questions. Then you will follow the signs down the hall into the Fitness Center. Please wear a mask until you get to your equipment. To exit, you will go through the side doors near the Fitness Center hallway. Don't forget to use our hand sanitizer dispenser before entering and exiting!

Social Distancing- The Fitness Center is divided into five areas, each of which has cardio equipment, a bench, weights, and more. We've also marked spots on the gym floor to help you keep your distance while working out. Please try to keep this distance from your fellow members in the gym.

Online Scheduling- Members are required to reserve space in the Fitness Center and group exercise classes using our online scheduling tool. Space is limited to five members per 30-minute slot in the Fitness Center. Reserve your space here.

Belongings- Please bring only your keys, cell phone, and water bottle into the facility - no bags or other clothing. You can fill up your water bottle, but cannot drink directly from the water fountain. For group exercise classes, please bring your own mat.

Locker Rooms- At this time, locker rooms are closed. There are designated bathrooms in the fitness hallway for members.


SugarWOD Fitness App

At YWCA New Britain, our goal is to provide the most supportive environment possible for our members and guests. This is even more important in our current environment.

We are committed to your health and fitness goals. While the Fitness Center is now open, we understand some members may not be ready to visit quite yet. Through SugarWOD, we will be providing live workouts you can do at home along with videos and wellness content to keep you motivated during this time.

SugarWOD is a fun (and FREE) mobile app that makes tracking your progress easy. PLUS it lets our incredible community interact, share successes, and provide a little extra encouragement via fist bumps and comments. Click here to see our offerings, how to get started on the app, and more.


"The staff is friendly, they know our names we feel at home here. And each trainer gives us a different perceptive on things, they are knowledgeable and are always willing to help. They make the classes fun. "

-Maureen Hoffman and Kareema McDonald, fitness members
