Health & Wellness

At the Kernersville Family YMCA, we offer a wide variety of Wellness programs from Personal Training to Group Exercises (including Group Cycling, Aerobics and Yoga & Pilates) and Specialty Programs.

Pardon our Progress

We are in the process of updating the Free Weight and Wellness Room to serve you better. Here’s what we’re up to from June 4-20:

  • Removal of the walls that separate the cardio wellness room and the free weight room
  • Removal of the ceiling tiles to increase the height of the room within the free weight room
  • New fan installation in the free weight room
  • Repainting the entire free weight room
  • Almost $30,000 of new free weight equipment

Please excuse the mess!

Pedaling for Parkinson’s

Join us on Fridays at 12:00pm for classes designed for those with Parkinson’s! These cycle classes are specifically designed for people dealing with symptoms from Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases. We use forced exertion and RPM programming to get the maximum benefit each class.

Every Friday at noon
Come early to set up your bike

Free to the community! No membership required. Caregives are welcome to participate if bikes are available!
