Youth & Teen Fitness

At the Y, we feel it’s important to instill healthy fitness practices early on. That’s why youth ages ten and up are encouraged to use our Wellness Centers where they will not only build physical strength, but gain confidence and develop healthy habits. (Certain restrictions apply)

Youth & Teen Personal Training

Youth and teens can work one-on-one with trained fitness staff to accomplish specific fitness goals, weight management, and sport-specific conditioning. They are introduced to age appropriate body weight exercises, cardiovascular games, and drills as well as the proper usage of our strength and cardiovascular equipment. Friend Fit is available. (Additional fees apply.)
