Please preview below all class and session availability sorted by ascending date or use the filter fields to create your own customized search. The easy-to-use class search feature is available for instructor, activity type, or category. Members do not need to make a reservation to use the Fitness Center or 8-Lane Pool.

To ensure we adhere to current capacity guidelines and gathering limits, advanced reservations are encouraged for limited spots in our growing list of group exercise offerings. Members must register online for classes and are encouraged to arrive at class five minutes before the start time or risk forfeiting their spot to a wait-listed member.

Reservations may be booked as early as 48 hours in advance and up to two hours before session start time. To reserve your spot, click on "Sign Up" for the desired session, login using your Madison Area YMCA App login and password, and click on the Reserve a Spot button. If you have not previously created a Madison Area YMCA App login, proceed to create a new login. These reservations are available to active Madison Area YMCA members only. Please use your first and last name when setting up your login, as we must be able to match your reservation to your active membership. Thank you!
