Beast Mode™ can be experienced by anyone of any fitness level, as the movements and exercises are scalable. But Beast Mode™ isn't your average YMCA group exercise class!
At our Caine Halter Family YMCA and Prisma Health Family YMCA locations, members are required to complete the On Ramp cycle before participating in Beast Mode classes.
The On Ramp cycle is a series of four, 60-minute sessions that cover basic barbell movements and skills that you will need to be successful in a Beast Mode WOD (Workout of the Day). Each class consists of a warm up, skill demo, group practice, assessments/feedback and then finishes with a short workout that includes the skill learned. All classes will include options to scale or modify, also to progress with the movement as needed. Participants must complete all four On Ramp classes to be allowed to join the Beast Mode classes and Open Gym. Participants can test out of the class with a coach if they have functional training background or experience.
Members must sign up ahead of time as class is limited to five participants per coach. To get started, sign up for an Open Gym time at your branch, or contact your Y's Beast Mode Head Coach!
Each location has a stable of coaches.
- Olympic lifting
- Box jumps
- Kettlebell swings
- Tire flips
- Jump squats
