Get (HI)IT Done

Mental and physical health go hand in hand, so YWCA is committed to helping you stay active while our co-ed gym is temporarily closed.

Join YWCA’s Director of Fitness, Starr Gargiullo, for exercises throughout the week. You can follow her virtual fitness instruction on Mondays and Fridays on the YWCA Fitness Facebook page or on our YouTube channel.

On Thursdays, Starr shares a weekly High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercise with YWCA Fitness Members. Make sure you’re receiving her exercises and our fitness center updates by subscribing to our Constant Contact email list!
