The Y’s cause is to strengthen community. Every day, we work side by side with our neighbors to make sure everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.

Enhance Fitness

The YMCA of Metro North is proud to offer Enhance Fitness at the Torigian Family YMCA. Enhance Fitness is a slow paced, low impact class targeted toward Active Older Adults, especially with arthritis. This class includes cardio activity, balance training, strength conditioning, and ends with stretching and flexibility.

Cardiac Rehab Maintenance

Cardiac Rehab Maintenance is a self-monitored exercise program designed for the graduates of the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at MelroseWakefield Healthcare.  The clinicians of the medically-monitored program recommend continued exercise following the completion of rehab.  Our program features a casual class with a format similar to rehab, led by YMCA staff.  Evidence shows that members have better outcomes than non-members, so membership is recommended.  In addition, there are cost savings for participants who exercise every week, with no additional cost for attending multiple classes, and access to all other features of our membership. Please contact Bernadette Farrell at with questions.
