Frequently Asked Questions
How much does the new virtual platform cost?
Our new virtual platform is INCLUDED with Greater Valley YMCA adult and family membership categories.
I am having trouble navigating the platform, help!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions about platform navigation. For Y specific questions, like programming suggestions, contact Michelle Machado, our virtual platform staff ambassador with questions.
Why are you stopping the Facebook class experience?
Greater Valley YMCA recognized during the COVID-19 pandemic, that adults and families need virtual wellness opportunities to support their busy, active lifestyle. Our investment in this new, professional, high-quality virtual platform demonstrates our commitment to YOU, our members, who need immediate access to wellness, based on YOUR personal schedule. Through this new virtual wellness online platform, members have live and on-demand access to Greater Valley YMCA instructors and instructors from across the globe. Plus, way above and beyond the Virtual Wellness Facebook Group capabilities, members can set personal health goals, schedule classes, and most of all - access thousands of class opportunities from 45 different wellness categories!
Why does it not look like the ZOOM format?
In respect to members' privacy, the Zoom standard of being able to see everyone participating in the class is not part of our new virtual platform. Coming soon, you will be able to invite up to 30 friends/family members also enrolled in the virtual platform to join you for an on-demand, scheduled class.
I do not see my favorite instructor on the virtual platform, how come?
If you do not see your favorite instructor on the virtual platform, please contact Michelle Madado, and she will be more than happy to recommend instructors to fit your needs.
Please note: Y Wellness 24/7 instructors are private to Y Wellness 24/7 members. So even though you can participate with instructors from across the globe, you cannot access Y Wellness 24/7 instructors without a membership to a participating YMCA.
How often will the class library be updated?
The YMCA on-demand library will be updated each Friday. You can take classes with Greater Valley YMCA instructors and instructors from across the globe whenever you access the platform.
Can I see the virtual platform on my television?
There are a few ways to connect to your TV from a mobile device. You can use a wired connection (more information here)--or, depending on your device, you can also stream classes directly to a smart TV.
Android app versions higher than 4.3.6 are able to cast to the following devices: Roku, Fire TV Stick, Chromecast.
Due to the variety of devices and operating systems we recommend consulting the help documents or website associated with your specific mobile device and/or smart TV.
I have an insurance membership (ex: Silver Sneakers, Silver and Fit, Health Partners, Keystone, Tivity, Renew Active) and love your online classes. Can I access your new virtual platform?
Yes, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to track your workouts, which now qualifies these types of membership for use of the Y Wellness 24/7.
