The Uniontown Area YMCA is very excited to announce that we are adding a class called "Strength Train Together" to our group classes! Our first class will be held Friday, March 1 at 9am so come sign up!

Strength Train Together maximizes your workout results with 60 minutes of impactful strength training. You’ll get stronger while improving movement when you combine traditional strength training with functional exercises using an adjustable barbell, weights and body weight.

There are a maximum of 17 spots available for each class and you need to reserve your spot by signing up in the aerobic room. Look for our March group class schedule posting soon to see when our Strength Train Together classes will take place!
