Personal Training
YMCA Personal Training provides members with one-on-one assessments, goal-setting and coaching sessions designed to personally address your specific needs.  A personal trainer can put the “personal” back into your workout.  Not only will your trainer devise exercises that are best suited to your fitness goals, you can usually plan your sessions for a time that is convenient for you.  Since you will be exercising in a one-on-one setting, you need not worry about competing with other students, or holding them back.  Your trainer will also make sure that you are performing the exercises in impeccable form.  This is crucial to making progress.  Additionally, YMCA trainers make a point of keeping current in the latest fitness trends and research, so you can be assured that your fitness routine will never be outdated.

 Our goal is for you to have a safe, effective and enjoyable Y personal training experience.  We wish you all the best in achieving your goals.
Schedule your appointment at the Welcome Center.
