The Cansler Y will be OPEN regular hours, but our FITNESS FLOOR will be closed January 21-23.
Due to the installation of NEW FLOORING and NEW EQUIPMENT, the upstairs of the Cansler Y (fitness floor including cardio, strength training, free weights, and upstairs aerobics studio) will be CLOSED from Tuesday, January 21st through Thursday, January 23rd. The rest of the building will be OPEN with regular hours.
What will be new?
We are getting a new line of strength equipment, including 15 new Matrix strength pieces as well as 3 new treadmills. The upstairs carpet will be replaced with rubber fitness flooring and vinyl flooring.
Will my class be cancelled if it typically meets upstairs?
No! We are holding classes downstairs during this three-day period, so all group exercise classes will be held as scheduled regardless of the upstairs studio being closed. Due to this schedule/location change for classes, we will have to cancel Pickleball on Wednesday, January 22nd.
Where can I work out?
The downstairs of the Cansler Y will remain open, so you’ll still have access to the yoga studio, spin studio, basketball gym, and pool. For cardio, we recommend hopping on a spin bike, swimming some laps in the pool, trying a group exercise class, or visiting another Y location.
Which Y is the closest to the Cansler Y?
The Downtown Y is just 1.5 miles away and offers FULL facilities including everything you typically use at our Cansler Y, plus racquetball courts, steam rooms, saunas, and a great functional fitness space called “The Attic.” You can also visit our North Side Y in Halls, West Side Y at West Hills, or Davis Y in Farragut.
