With more members asking for programming, additional space for classes and child care, the YMCA of Central Virginia has responded and is doubling its facilities at 3408 Old Forest Road — home of the Y Express.

Currently, the Y Express is only offering yoga and H.I.I.T classes — high intensity interval training — which was the most the 9,000-square-foot space could offer after filling in with weights, treadmills, ellipticals, indoor exercise bikes and other machines.

The newly expanded space which doubles the size of the gym will offer child care, a group fitness studio, a mind and body studio for yoga and Pilates and a functional fitness studio, all which could fit between 30 to 40 people. The expansion also will feature a space for the brand new Regymen Fitness program, which will be a first for the area and only the second one in the country. The Regymen class promises to disrupt the daily routine and burn 1,000 calories per class.
