Full Re-Opening Guide

Re-Opening Update

We’ve missed you all. We have been hard at work these past months making facility and policy updates and purchasing new fitness equipment, cleaning supplies and equipment to keep you safe and healthy. We have moved fitness equipment so that we can create 12’ of separation, so that you will not be required to wear a face covering while exercising. This means some equipment will be closed for use, some will be placed in Pods with other equipment and some have been removed.


Streaming Fitness Classes are now available. Go to nwcty.org/motionvibe for information on how to get started.

Torrington: We have opened the Strength and Cardio centers, as well as the pool for lap swimming & family swim. We have also installed a new fresh-air supply air-handling unit in our cardio center, as well as, touchless water bottle filling stations and plexiglass to create a safer environment. Group Ex Classes have started in the gymnasium, see the schedule here. Male & female showers & locker rooms have re-opened, we just ask that you socially distance from others in those spaces. The gymnasium will open for Solo Basketball Shooting click here to reserve your spot (reservations listed under Torrington Gymnasium).

Winsted: We have also re-opened the Winsted location & pool. Due to the State of Connecticut guidelines, we have separated cardio equipment between the cardio and group ex spaces. Group Ex has started in the gymnasium, see the schedule here. Locker rooms and showers have re-opened, we just ask you to socially distance yourself in these areas. The gymnasium will remain closed at this time.

Canaan: The Canaan Family YMCA has re-opened! Our new entrance, flooring, member services desk and new equipment are now ready for you, and we think you will really like the changes. Get a preview of what your new visits will look like by viewing our video tour here.

Outdoor Group Ex Classes are being held on the grassy area just in front of the Y and Cycling Classes are held on the patio that overlooks the swimming pool, see the schedule here

We have missed you over the past few months and we are ready to get back to doing what we love – serving you! Can’t wait to see you soon.
