Programs       

Aquatics: Pool

YWCA is focused on the overall quality of life for our community. We have eighteen water (aquatics) classes, and since we’re a Silver & Fit and SilverSneakers® Fitness Program site, many of our classes are older adult focused. As an Arthritis Foundation accredited pool, we keep the water in our pool at 84-86°F. We offer swim lessons for infants to adults and everything from open swim to birthday parties, baptisms and more.

We have a fitness center with cardio machines and weights along with exercise classes designed to meet the needs of individuals, no matter their fitness level. We also have certified personal trainers by appointment at our facility.

Arthritis Water Exercise

This program is designed specifically for those people who may have arthritis or other physical limitations. It is also a good course to use for physical rehabilitation after surgery (with doctor’s permission). Instructors are trained by the Arthritis Foundation in exercise designed to increase joint mobility, increase muscle tone and flexibility. 

Water Aerobics

This class is an aerobic workout complete with warm up, a 20 minute aerobic routine and cool down in the water, there is less chance of strained muscles. Also, as with the AFAP and Water Aerobics classes, all exercises are done in the shallow end of the pool - you don't even get your hair wet if you don't want to!

Swim Lessons  Swim Lesson Flyer

We offer swim lessons for infants 6 months old to adults. Call the YWCA for more information.

Teaching Kitchen: 

The Teaching Kitchen is the newest program area for YWCA High Point, as it is opening in  2017.  The teaching kitchen will be utilized by all of the program areas within YWCA to teach healthy eating, eating on a budget and other nutritional topics.  The teaching kitchen will additionally be available for community organizations such as NC Cooperative Extension, to have access to hands-on teaching and demonstration classes.
