The Wilkes Barre Family YMCA has all your cross training needs! STUDIO X is our all new studio located on the second floor of our facility in front of the group exercise studio. Our signature small group training program led by certified instructors provides cross training exercises based on constantly varied functional movements. We pride ourselves on offering diverse options that allow the program to cater to all fitness levels. We believe everyone deserves to be successful! Weight and resistance can be used to challenge you or assist you when needed, cardio and HIIT training is sprinkled in and our strong team environment creates accountability and forges friendships.

"I just wanted to drop a note of thanks to you for adding the StudioX classes. Last week, I completed the Scranton half-marathon in a little over two hours and while I was on a cardio training blueprint, I would argue that it was the 12+ weeks of training at StudioX that gave me the strength to finish strong. Also,  StudioX allowed me the ability to get right back into the gym two days later. This is a testament to StudioX and what it can do for anyone. I was not sure I would be able to complete the course, but I would argue that StudioX was the perfect cross training that I needed to keep my body performing at high levels under racing conditions. 

Thank you to Lauranel Banks and Mary Price who were the trainers for the sessions I participated in and the YMCA for adding this group fitness option. Also, a special thanks to all the members who worked to push each other in our classes. It has made and continues to make a difference in my life. I know that if you give it a try, it will help you reach your goals, whatever they may be. " - In thanks, Vito Malacari

"I had a body composition assessment at the beginning and end of my session. I lost 2% body fat in the 4 weeks!!! Only doing Studio X twice a week.  I ran a few times too, but still, I'm so excited about it. My body fat was not in the 'desirable range' when I started." -Michelle

"I started doing doing studiox once a week last session and this session I have joined 3x a week! Now I am training to run my first Spartan Race in July and very excited because I know I am going to be ready for it." - John
