To best adhere to the extended social distancing guidelines, one person will be allowed per lane in lanes 1-3, and 3 people are allowed in the open swim lanes (for a total of 6 people allowed in the pool at a time). Please note that masks are required except when in the pool. To register, you will need to sign into the new HFC system (instructions below), and register to reserve a lane for lap swimming or space for open swim.

Once registered, please update your user profile and make sure your billing information is correct and up-to-date. Please note that normal billing will resume in January.

To begin:

Once logged in, you can find these videos, which include categories such as Cardio, Dance, Meditation, Pilates and more, on the left under “Virtual Workout Videos” and “Virtual Wellness Videos.”  

Virtual Fitness Classes. YWCA St. Paul’s virtual group fitness classes are included as part of your membership. Please note these classes will also require sign up through the system in the coming weeks, so we encourage you to set up your account following the instructions above.
