Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center at York College in the summer

Group Exercise

Fitness is easier when you've got support all around you

If you need group motivation and a change of pace, group exercise is perfect. We offer both student and employee-focused classes that address your physical and mental wellness.

We suggest trying out the high-intensity, calorie-burning, ever-popular H.I.I.T and Zumba classes if you want a heavy but fun workout, or a yoga class for a calming focus. Classes are open to all fitness levels and, as always, are free to anyone with Grumbacher access. Classes are first come, first serve; you can sign-up up to 48 hours in advance on the YCP Rec App or

Group Yoga class at York College
We offer yoga classes several times a week for students and for employees.

Spring 2022 Schedule

  • Class Descriptions

    Bodyworks - is light weight, high repetition, full range of motion workout. The goal of the workout is to burn calories, increase overall strength, balance and range of motion.

    High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a combination of plyometrics, kickboxing, navy seal moves, push-ups, burpees and aerobic dance along with various ab core strengthening moves. As it says in the title, this is a High-Intensity class. 

    Yoga is a group exercise class open for all  (Faculty, staff, and students) regardless of yoga experience and current fitness level. Modifications and variations of classical asanas (poses) are taught so that all may participate. 

    Boom Muscle - Shred weight while gaining muscle. This is a weight training workout lifting dumbbells with aerobic intervals. 

    Zumba® Fitness It’s a Party!!  We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
