Y Night at the Theatre

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Y night at Studio Theatre on February 18th! Not only was Tribes a compelling and moving play, but we were blown away by the outstanding support of our Caring for Community campaign - helping us raise $14,000 for kids and families in need. We give our sincere gratitude to our sponsors and 140 guests of this 1st annual event. 

Thank to our Sponsors!

Explore Movement

Introducing our newest and hottest group exercise programs. Try any of these classes for free! If you have any questions, please email Angela Meyer, our Regional Group Exercise Director.

Krav Maga
Krav Maga, the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces and the preferred system for U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel, is not a traditional martial arts system. There are no rituals. There are no Katas. This reality-based system is based on simple principles and instinctive movements, designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time.

Y-Martial Arts classes are taught under the leadership of DC’s top Krav Maga instructor, self defense expert and 2011 MMA World Champion, Chris Torres. Students will learn a practical approach to self defense together, and through realistic training drills, burn fat and build muscle in uniquely fun and challenging way. Take unlimited classes for only $45 per month.

Y-Fit is the most effective Progressive Fitness training the YMCA has to offer, for as low as $6 per class! Every participant will receive a personalized workout that focuses on proper technique. The instructor will meet you where you are and take you as far as you want to go. We will keep you safe, educated and motivated to achieve your best results. You will broaden and deepen their fitness experience by training at appropriate levels and intervals with TRX, ViPR, Olympic lifting, Power lifting, H.I.I.T., Tabata and Sandbags.

after-school clubs 

The Youth and Family Team is very excited to offer After-School Clubs at YMCA National Capital to the Ross community.
