Any equipment or supplies required will be explained in the beginning of video and in the video description.

We offer a selection of fitness videos that can be completed without any equipment and some that do require equipment. We try to feature fitness equipment that is more commonly attainable for home use like dumbbells, kettlebells and bands in our videos that do feature equipment. Substitutions will be recommended to offer options suitable for a variety of difficulty levels.

YMCA at Home will still offer free content you can share with your family and friends! The content on Y@Home+ is only available to the account holder and their immediate family and should not be shared with others.
