The Nautilus Center

The most effective, progressive resistance exercise program available that improves strength, your heart and flexibility in each 30 minute workout. Our 12 month graduated workout system is designed to guide you through those difficult first months when establishing a regular workout routine is particularly challenging. We understand that as difficult as it is to start an exercise program, it is even harder to keep it going. Our experienced staff is on hand to train, answer questions and help you succeed in achieving your wellness goals. As always, 4-6 training appointments per year are included with your membership at no additional cost. Motivational games and challenges keep workout enthusiasm and the “fun factor” high. Two 16 piece Nautilus strength circuits means no waiting for equipment to become available. The Nautilus Center includes it’s own cardio and stretching area as well.

First Step Fitness

Included free with your Facility membership, FSF is a habit-forming plan for physically inactive individuals who need structure to help them develop the basic physical and psychological skills needed to exercise regularly. Although adopting and maintaining an exercise behavior is primarily a psychological and social process of change, the physiological component cannot be ignored. The First Step Fitness Program uses an individualized, step-by-step approach that focuses on cardiovascular endurance and resistance training. This approach provides program members with basic physical skills that they can continue to use and adapt when the program ends. The basic requirements for program participants are to 1) show up at the Y at least three days per week for 12 weeks and 2) attend the one-on-one appointments. First Step Fitness participants report experiencing increased self-confidence, a strong sense of belonging, and a high sense of achievement as they pursue their health and well-being goals in a safe and supportive environment.


This second phase program is for those with initial exercise success. The program offers the atmosphere, motivation, skills and guidance necessary to continue the commitment to creating a life-long habit. Y-Boost is for FSF graduates and other exercisers who are ready to make lifelong changes. Y-Boost provides experienced Exercise Trainers who help you set proper goals and work with you monitoring your progress in the supportive atmosphere of the Farr Fitness Center or Nautilus Center. We will help you get healthy and strong!
