Frequently Asked Questions
When will this change go into effect?
The new and improved interactive wellness schedule will be pushed live on Monday, February 6, 2023. If this date changes, we will post an update on our website and on social media.
How do I access the new interactive wellness schedule?
If you are already familiar with our interactive wellness schedule, the way you access it will not change. You will still visit www.graniteymca.org/calendar to see all of your favorite schedules. You can also find it by visiting www.graniteymca.org and clicking "CALENDAR" in the main navigation. Below are links you can use to view all of our wellness schedules:
What are the benefits of this change? Are there any new features?
The biggest benefit to this update is that it allows for more flexibility when browsing through our offerings. There are a wide variety of filters to choose from such as branch location, schedule category, instructor, class time, and more. You'll even have the ability to choose as many filters as you'd like! You can also toggle between daily and weekly views, make reservations, and see class cancellations.
What filters are available? How do they work?
When using our old interactive wellness schedule, the only two filters available were branch location and schedule category. These filters will still be available, along with many new ones! The best part? You can choose as many filters as you'd like. An example would be if you'd like to view all morning group exercise classes in both Manchester and Goffstown, you can! Select as many or as few filters as you'd like. Below is a list of relevant filters and how to use them:

What’s the difference between “Daily View” and “Week View”?
“Daily View” shows one day’s worth of activities listed in order by time. In “Daily View”, you can see future days by clicking the different dates above the listed activities. By default, the interactive wellness schedule will be in the “Daily View” when using a mobile device or tablet.
"Week View” shows one week’s worth of activities. In this view, you will see seven columns in total starting with Sunday and ending with Saturday. All activities within each column will be shown in order by time. In “Week View”, you can see future weeks by clicking any of the "Week of" buttons. By default, the interactive wellness schedule will be in the “Week View” when using a desktop computer.
No matter what type of device you are using, you are welcome to toggle back and forth between “Daily View” and “Week View” as you please using the "Daily View" or “Week View” links at the top right of the interactive wellness schedule.
How do I make a reservation?
Due to high demand, limited capacity and limited equipment, some activities may require or recommend a reservation. These activities vary by branch and may include water exercise classes, group exercise classes like cycling and TRX, pickleball, kid zone, and more.
In the daily list view, activities that require/recommend reservations will have a yellow blurb labeled "You must be logged in to make reservations." Click "login" to make a reservation. This link will open a new tab and direct you to our member site where you can make your reservation.
In the weekly grid view, activities that require/recommend reservations will have blue colored text. To make a reservation, click the activity and then click "login". This link will open a new tab and direct you to our member site where you can make your reservation.
How do I see if an activity is cancelled?
If an activity has been cancelled, it will be marked "CANCELLED" in bright red text. Class cancellations are often also posted as an alert at www.graniteymca.org or on your local Y's Facebook page.
How do I access the downloadable PDF schedules?
If you would like to download a PDF version of a schedule, click the "Download Schedule" button just above the interactive schedule. This will bring you to www.graniteymca.org/downloadable-schedules, which lists all available schedules to download. Printed schedules may also be available at your local Y.
I have a question or need assistance. Who should I reach out to?
We know that change can be difficult. In anticipation of this and to make this transition as seamless as possible for our members, we put together these FAQs and a video tutorial explaining how to use the new interactive wellness schedule. We encourage you to look through both of these materials to familiarize yourself with the new look and feel.
