Health & Fitness

Beginning on July 29 we would like to welcome our active members back to the East Whittier YMCA for outdoor fitness. 

We are pleased to be able to offer a selection of outdoor group exercise classes at our East Whittier Family Center beginning on Monday, August 10. Classes will be taught by our instructor Amanda Perez and take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Members must make a reservation at least 30 minutes in advance by phone at 562-943-7241 or by email at EWmembership@ymcawhittier.org. Upon arrival, check-in at the welcome desk is required. Please bring your own mat, towel and water bottle as we are unable to provide equipment at this time. Thank you!

Due to the shifting hours of daylight, please see our updated schedule and offerings at this time on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are as follows:

7:30-8:30 AM Zumba:  Join the party that combines Latin and international music with dance moves! This fun aerobic workout alternates fast and slow dance rhythms for an interval training workout that feels more like a dance party!

8:30-9:30 AM Pilates: An overall toning and sculpting class that targets the deepest layers of muscle. Emphasis is placed on core muscle strength using precise movements initiated from the center of the body.

In addition to our outdoor group exercise classes members are welcome to utilize the following equipment outside at the East Whittier YMCA between 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM:

  • Exercise Bikes
  • Elliptical Machines
  • Adjustable Benches
  • Free-Weights including, dumbells, barbells, large squat rack and plates

Members must make a reservation at least 30 minutes in advance by phone at 562-943-7241 or by email at EWmembership@ymcawhittier.org. Upon arrival, check-in at the welcome desk is required. Please note that at this time our locker rooms remain closed.

If you still aren’t ready to come back just yet, please make use of YMCA 360 linked below. You will have access to hundreds of fitness sessions from the comfort of your own home.


These programs and everything else the Y does are in service of making us—our Ys and our communities—better. The result is a country that values health and communities that support healthy choices.

Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body, and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y goes beyond just working out. In addition to fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.
