YWCA Now Offering POP Pilates Express

Posted: Thursday, October 27, 2016

Pilates hybrid class incorporates dance, is included in YWCA fitness membership package

YWCA Bergen County is pleased to announce a new addition to its extensive array of land and water fitness classes available to all members. POP Pilates Express is a half hour-long fusion of ab-chiseling and total-body-defining moves, all choreographed to Top 40 hits. It will be offered Thursdays evenings from 7:30 to 8 p.m. and is just one of the 40 plus fitness classes offered in our $108 for an eight-week session.

POP Pilates Express is an “intense, mat-based workout challenging students to rhythmically flow from one exercise to the next,” said Colleen Fontes, a YWCA Bergen County fitness instructor who is leading the classes. The workout will help participants develop “a rock solid core, leaving no muscle untouched,” added Fontes, who equates the conditioning to “dance on a mat.”

In addition to the new Pilates Express offering, YWCA members who purchase an eight-week fitness package receive unlimited access to a wide variety of challenging and motivating classes led by the YWCA’s certified instructors, the most experienced in the area. YWCA has more than 45 offerings including barre, Zumba, Aqua Fitness, Pilates, yoga, body sculpting, cardio and boot camp, as well as water fitness classes. All classes are held at the YWCA Bergen Count facility at 112 Oak Street, Ridgewood.

YWCA members who prefer to enroll for more than eight weeks may purchase a 360 fitness membership, affording free POP Pilates Express along with all other classes. A 360 fitness membership has additional benefits: lap swim, family swim and senior swim, reduced pricing and early bird program registration for swim lessons, children’s dance and more. Adult 360 memberships cost just $41 per month. Membership for teens/students costs only $28 per month, with seniors charged $28 per month, and family memberships available for $60 per month.
