HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

We're here to help you find what moves you at the Y!

PERSONAL TRAINING SPECIAL

APRIL 1 - 30

If you've been thinking about hiring a personal trainer, April is a great month to get started! Through the month of April, you can get 5 one-on-one sessions for $249 or 10 for $479! That's up to $71 in savings!

Our personal trainers use their extensive knowledge of current exercise research concepts, methods of sound exercise principles and state-of-the-art equipment to guide you to your fitness goals. YMCA trainers are accredited through the National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA) or have a degree in exercise science (or a related field). Based on your health and individual needs, our personal trainers will customize and implement a program to help you achieve your goals.

Please note that discounts will apply at checkout. You may also purchase in-person by visiting us at the branch! Once you've purchased a package, a branch fitness coach will contact you to discuss your goals and connect you with a trainer.

LIVESTRONG

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA engages cancer survivors through an approach that focuses on the whole person — mind and body. Through this program participants work with trained Y staff to improve cardiovascular endurance and functional ability, build muscle mass and strength, and increase flexibility. In addition to physical benefits, the program also focuses on the mental and emotional well-being of survivors and their families. This creates a supportive community environment where people affected by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond. Get more information online here.

  • March 5 — May 23: Spring session will meet every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 11:00am.
  • Fall session: TBD
