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 starting 30 minutes before the class at the welcome desk. We now have Rec*It FITNESS app to put our Group Exercise schedule at your fingertips, too! Just visit the IM Leagues page and enter your mobile number in the Rec*It box.

Spring 2020 Schedule

  • Class Descriptions

    Core Barre Express Why are Barre workouts so popular?  Because they work!  Join us for this quick, but intense, ballet-inspired workout!   No dancing here, but dance-inspired moves help to build muscle strength and endurance while simultaneously working on flexibility and mental focus. Tuesday & Thursdays: 4:30 - 5 p.m. (GC 263)

    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.

    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.
