AUBURN — The Auburn-Lewiston YMCA will launch the latest segment of its innovative program, Group Power, with free classes open to the community.

The winter release will feature new music, new exercises and new programming as the Y continues to develop the first nationally certified program in Maine and New Hampshire.

Group Power is a 60-minute strength training class that strengthens major muscles in a motivating group environment with music and nationally certified instructors. With simple movements such as squats, lunges, presses and curls, Group Power is for all fitness levels.

“This program has created an incredible amount of participation among our members with lots of positive feedback,” said YMCA Wellness Director Tish Caldwell “One of the great things about Group Power is that throughout the year we will be launching fresh and exciting new classes. This keeps all of our instructors and participants motivated and makes for an invigorating workout. Group Power is a challenging yet achievable program that is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels.”

The Y will launch the winter program with free classes on Wednesday, Jan. 26. The class times are 9 to 10 a.m, 2:45 to 3:45 and 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. and are open to the public.

The Y offers more than 50 group exercise classes a week, including yoga and pilates. Visit, stop by the Y at 62 Turner St. or call 795 4095 for more information.
