Personal Training

The YMCA understands that everyone is not at the same fitness level, so with a personal trainer we can accommodate you at your level of fitness. Whether you are an avid exerciser or a beginner, our trainers can ensure that you are being trained in a safe environment and at a comfortable pace until you are ready to proceed to the next level of fitness without injury. Our training sessions are one of the best ways to begin an overall individual fitness program. A certified trainer will help you develop an enjoyable fitness program that will target your goals. We create a program for you, walk you through each phase and offer suggestions while discussing your personal needs.
