GYM Just for Girls!

- November 26 2017

There's something new at the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve YMCA.

GYM Just for Girls: On Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, the GYM is just for girls. This activity is for all teenage girls in the neighbourhood, so participants don’t need a Y membership—it’s free.

Girls aged 12 to 17 who live in the neighbourhood can enjoy an instructor-led class and get advice about healthy lifestyle habits. The activity has three parts:  

  • A group HIT (High Intensity Training) class—a very motivating group activity with a lot of health benefits.  
  • A break to let participants can catch their breath and talk with the instructor about nutrition, sleep habits, different kinds of workouts or other health-related topics.  
  • An introduction to a variety of fitness activities, like Zumba, Yoga, dance or other activities that participants would like to try. It’s time to have fun and get moving.

The activity starts on Wednesday, November 1 at 6:30 pm. For more information, contact Jonathan Alarie at 514-255-3495, extension 2234  (jonathan.alarie@ymcaquebec.org).
