Equipment Orientations

One of our fitness attendants will develop and guide you through a general fitness routine on all of the weight machines. Follow-up orientations may be scheduled after your first appointment. The follow-up orientation will review workouts and make adjustments to exercise routines as needed. We recommend two appointments for beginners. Appointments can be made at the Front Desk (ages 15+).


Wellness Consultation

FREE service for our members used as a follow-up to the equipment orientation. Let this be your next step in assessing your goals and objectives. A Personal Trainer will discuss your current routine and schedule, then offer suggestions based upon what you are doing and where you may want to go from there. Appointment must be scheduled with a Personal Trainer.
