TOP REASONS TO SIGN UP FOR PERSONAL TRAINING:
Achieve Your Goals

Working with a trainer will hold you accountable to regular exercise, keeping your commitment to yourself. It’s much harder to skip a trip to the Y when you have someone there waiting for you!
Turn Weaknesses to Strengths
You can’t know how far you’ve come unless you know where you started. Our trainers can assess your strengths and weakness, focusing on your targeted areas of improvement throughout your individual sessions.
Motivation and Encouragement
Our trainers will take you through each of your sessions while offering personalized feedback, encouragement, and support to keep you on track for achieving your goals!
Our trainers hold a minimum of a bachelors degree, as well as a nationally recognized exercise certification. Each trainer can effectively assess your fitness level and design a program specific for your needs.
