Here at the Greater Memphis Chamber we love to celebrate business growth and development! There's nothing like standing beside you as you open the doors to your new business or reveal your new expansion. That's why we offer our members our expertise and assistance with hosting grand opening and expansion ceremonies. Thank you to our Ribbon Cuttings sponsor, Paragon Bank for helping us support local businesses like you. Today, we are happy to be celebrating the Sweeney YMCA at their new location within Saint Francis Hospital, including the first Y Virtual Studio in Memphis.

Sweeney YMCA Virtual Studio

What does your business provide?

Sweeney YMCA provides a comfortable and convenient environment for everyone looking to improve their health. Our YMCA offers state of the art cardio and strength equipment, clean locker rooms with  showers, personal training and the newest addition, the Virtual Fitness Studio. The Virtual Fitness Studio gives members access to the best instructors, music, and workouts seen across the fitness industry streamed on demand

If your business is expanding, how will this change affect your vision for the future?

At most YMCAs, group exercise classes are one of the most popular benefits included in the membership.  We wanted to offer that same benefit to members of our Sweeney YMCA. We also serve many of the Saint Francis Hospital employees that work various shifts and need a flexible class schedule.  The Virtual Fitness Studio will offer a combination of live instructor classes, a catalog of scheduled streamed classes and classes on demand.

What makes your business stand out?

The combination of world class instructors, heart-pumping music, and cinematic quality programs will not only give members the results they desire, but they’ll have a blast doing so. The Virtual Fitness Studio features popular Les Mills classes such as BodyPump, BodyFlow, Sh’Bam, BodyCombat, Grit, and CxWorx that are designed for all levels of physical activity. In between schedule classes, members will be able to take advantage of OnDemand slots and choose their favorites!
