Thanks to the support of The K21 Health Foundation, and in partnership with YMCAs across the country, the Kosciusko Community YMCA is excited to launch YMCA360.

This brand new video on demand and live streaming service brings the Y experience seamlessly to mobile devices, TVs, streaming devices and the web, and will be included free with every YMCA membership, according to a news release from the YMCA.

With YMCA360, pursuing a healthier lifestyle is possible anytime and anywhere. Members will be able to view and participate in hundreds of group exercise classes, youth sports training, well-being classes, cooking classes, remotely connect with personal trainers, view daily live fitness classes and more – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  

“YMCA360 allows people to pursue a healthier mind, body, and spirit at their own pace, on their schedule, and in any location. Be it in our state-of-the-art facility, in their living rooms, or while traveling,” Benjamin Keffer, director of marketing and fund development.

When the YMCA shut down in 2020 due to COVID-19, the staff worked to continue finding ways to fulfill the Y’s mission even with their doors closed, the release states. From their living rooms, back yards and garages they created and shared hundreds of videos on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, free to the community. When their doors reopened, the desire to continue connecting with people in new innovative ways led the Kosciusko Community YMCA to bring YMCA360 to life.

“With many affected by COVID-19, we saw a need for an innovative way to offer programs that could be accessed from anywhere,” said Jim Swanson, Kosciusko County YMCA CEO. “With the generous support of The K21 Health Foundation, we are excited to expand our class offerings through YMCA360. This is a great way for us to continue to live out our mission in Kosciusko County and the surrounding areas.”

YMCA360 is available free to the community through the end of Sept. 26. Beginning Sept. 27, it will switch to a members-only benefit.

YMCA360 is available now on Apple TV, iOS and Roku. Android and Android TV support will be launching soon.
