Rev up your wellness with the Y!
The first 30 days of your Y membership is the time to establish a routine in order to make a change toward a healthier lifestyle. Your journey to wellness, getting in shape or achieving your fitness goals starts with an orientation.
Free with your membership you will receive a one-hour appointment with a member of the Fitness Staff. The staff member will discuss your goals with you and introduce you to both our cardio and strength lines of equipment. This appointment is designed to help you to be comfortable and confident while exercising at the Y.
If you decide you would like to have individualized training once you go through your orientation, you have the option to purchase a personal training package. If you purchase a package within the first 60 days of joining the YMCA you will receive a free Fitness Assessment.

Fitness Options to help you Reach your Goals!
A fitness assessment is a valuable tool to use for assessing your current fitness levels. We recommend signing up for a fitness assessment as you get started at the YMCA to have an accurate gauge of your training needs. In this One Hour appointment you will meet with a certified fitness staff member who will explain and perform each test and review your fitness assessment results with you.
