    Outdoor Fitness Center Opens at Simi YMCA

    Simi Valley, Calif. (November 24, 2020)—With Ventura County shifting back into the purple tier, which prohibits gyms from operating indoors, the Simi Valley Family YMCA is opening a new outdoor fitness center in the parking lot behind the facilities.

    The approximately 3,000 square foot outdoor center is partially covered to protect from the elements and contains cardio and strength training equipment.

    It was only last month that the Y's indoor fitness center reopened after being closed since March. "We realized that we needed to be flexible so we could continue to offer workout opportunities to our members and the community regardless of the tier level," says Erin Wimmer, Director of Healthy Living at the Simi Valley YMCA. "Since we do not know when the county will go back to a less restrictive level, an outdoor facility is a must. We're fortunate that our location can accommodate the center without affecting parking."

    Equipment is spaced at least 12 feet apart. It is sanitized regularly by fitness staff. Hours are Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Reservations are required. For more information or to a make reservation, call 583-5338.

  • Yarrow YMCA in Westlake Village Opens 9,000 Square Foot Outdoor Fitness Facility

    Press Release November 25,2020

    Westlake Village, Calif.--The Yarrow Family YMCA in Westlake Village has opened a nearly 9,000 square foot covered outdoor fitness facility in its back parking lot (31105 East Thousand Oaks Blvd.). The facility opened November 2.

    The exercise area contains cardio equipment and weights to provide members an opportunity to workout in a COVID-compliant setting until Los Angeles County officially enters the red tier level and gyms can reopen indoors.

    In August, the Yarrow YMCA began offering outdoor group exercise classes. "The classes were well received. We know that the community wants something more, particularly access to cardio and weight-lifting equipment," says Ronnie Stone, President/CEO of the Southeast Ventura County YMCA. "Since indoor workouts are still uncertain, we made the decision to move the equipment outdoors so we could comply with all health and safety guidelines."

    To allow for cleaning and disinfecting, hours are 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 7:00 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Reservations are required. For more information or to a make reservation, call 818-707-9622.

    The Simi Valley Family YMCA was cleared to open its indoor fitness center in early October. The pool and locker rooms remain closed until Ventura County moves to the orange tier.
