I have the greatest job. Honestly. For 23 years I’ve been paid to get rooms full of people excited about push-ups, jumping jacks, dance moves, squats, lunges, Pilates, stretching, strength building and general mania. Together, we push the limits of our physical abilities through the sweat, the laughter and the support of the group. For that one hour of the day, those of us in that studio are a team. We have a goal and a purpose and by the 59th minute, we are always victorious. There are no losers. How lucky am I? 

The best news here: there is always room for another good instructor at YWCA Minneapolis.

  • If group fitness classes are what get you through your tough weeks, we want to hear from you!
  • If you’ve taken classes for years and now feel ready to transform your passion into leadership, we want to hear from you!
