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.


When school is out for parent conferences or federal holidays, the Y has camps to keep your child learning and growing! YMCA National Capital provides a safe, fun and enriching environment for your child to spend these days off from school. FULL Days Out will be scheduled FIELD TRIPS to places like ice skating outdoors in Georgetown, Bounce U, the National Zoo, and Six Flags America. See the list of trips on the forms attached here. Half Days will be at the YMCA National Capital. On half days, buses will pick up from School Without Walls at Francis Stevens Education Campus and Ross Elementary School; all other participants must have transportation to the Y.

Winter and Spring Break Camp will be scheduled like a traditional day at camp with arts & crafts, sports, team building, enrichment, character development, youth wellness, service-learning and free choice activities. Our staff members reflect, demonstrate and teach the YMCA’s Character Development traits of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Please be sure to pack a lunch, snack, water, comfortable clothing, and a bathing suit (most days will have a swim period).
