Personal Fitness

At the Y, you are not just a number, you are a member. Meet one-on-one with our fitness staff for a personal introduction to our Wellness Center and assess your goals and how you can better achieve them. Our trained Wellness Center staff not only provide instruction on the proper use of the cardio equipment, but they lend guidance, support, and encouragement! As a new member of the Y you have the choice of one of two options: our Free Personal Fitness Program or Two Free Personal Training Sessions!

Free Personal Fitness Program

The Personal Fitness Program is designed for new and returning exercisers. The program lasts up to 4 weeks and includes weekly, individual meetings with a Y Strength Instructor who provides feedback and followup for your personalized program.

Two Free Personal Training Sessions

As a new Y member you are entitled to two ½ hour personal training sessions. Whether you want to manage your weight, participate in sports conditioning during the off-season, or live healthier, we have a personal training program for you.
