CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Greater Johnstown Community YMCA is offering multiple new programs, expanded classes and a special membership, all coming this fall.

The Johnstown YMCA is now offering fall fitness programs, expanded classes and insurance programs, group exercise classes and new youth sports.

“This feels like a really exciting time at the Y,” Shawn Sebring, CEO of the Johnstown Y, said. “It’s been years if not longer since we`ve really been able to find some footing and to start to grow. We are looking forward to a fun fall and are developing winter plans to continue with this growth.”

New programs at the Y include a squash the scale weight-loss challenge this fall open to both members and non-members. This challenge is a game-based fitness challenge that allows participants to work-out the way they want to. Participants can earn points that can help them win prizes over the 10 week program.
