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+).



Certified Personal Training

One-on-one fitness training with certified personal trainers. The YMCA’s Personal Training Program begins with an extensive consultation and health screening to identify any risks and set appropriate goals. Once your fitness level is determined, your trainer will develop a fitness plan customized to your particular abilities, goals and health status (ages 12+).

Functional Movement Screening

Functional Movement Screening (FMS) is a tool used to identify asymmetries which result in functional movement deficiencies. The FMS aims to identify imbalances in mobility and stability during seven fundamental movement patterns. Once these deficiencies have been identified, a program of corrective exercises is then developed with the goal of preventing musculoskeletal injuries.
