YMCA of Central Virginia launches YMCA360, an all new virtual streaming platform.
This new Video on Demand and Live Streaming service brings the Y experience seamlessly to mobile devices, TVs, streaming devices and the web, and will be included free with every YMCA membership.
With YMCA360, pursuing a healthier lifestyle is possible anytime and anywhere. Members will be able to view and participate in hundreds of group exercise classes, youth sports training, well-being classes, cooking classes, remotely connect with personal trainers, view daily live fitness classes and so much more. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
“YMCA360 allows people to pursue a healthier mind, body, and spirit at their own pace, on their schedule, and in any location. Be it in our state-of-the-art facility, in their living rooms, or while traveling,” Misty Vinson-Spitzer, Association Director of Communications.
When the YMCA shut down in 2020 due to COVID-19, the staff worked hard to continue finding ways to fulfill the Y’s mission even with their doors closed. From their living rooms, back yards, and garages they created and shared hundreds of videos on Facebook, Youtube, and Instagram, free to the community. When their doors reopened the desire to continue connecting with people in new innovative ways led the YMCA of Central Virginia to bring YMCA360 to their members.
“With many affected by COVID-19, we saw a need for an innovative way to offer programs that could be accessed from anywhere,” said Jay Parker, YMCA of Central Virginia CEO. “We are excited to expand our class offerings through YMCA360. This is a great way for us to continue to live out our mission in Central Virginia area.
YMCA360 is available free to the community now through the end of November 20th. Beginning November 21st it will switch to a members-only benefit.
YMCA360 is available now on Apple TV, iOS, and Roku. Android and Android TV support will be launching soon! Individuals and families who are interested in learning more about YMCA360 or membership options can visit ymcacva.org or speak with staff one of the YMCA of Central Virginia’s Family Centers.
