Racial & Ethical APPROACHES to Community health

Community Group EXERCISE classes

The YMCA of Greater Birmingham has partnered with several organizations in order to address health disparities such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, breast and cervical cancer, infant mortality and obesity. The YMCA provides community based exercise classes to engage residents with core components of relationship building and education as well as strength, flexibility and cardio. Classes are held at YMCA branches and community facilities. The Y also provides community walking and running groups led by YMCA instructors and held at community parks, YMCA’s and several locations of the trail systems around the city of Birmingham.
