Life Changing Challenge

With the help of a certified YMCA Wellness Coach, you will establish your goals, track your results, earn points, build relationships and earn bonus rewards. Points can be earned by working out at any YMCA, taking a group exercise class, swimming, walking, jogging, enjoying your favorite sport, exercising on your own, attending appointments with your coach and MUCH more. The more you do, the quicker you accumulate point and the faster you receive bonus rewards. Our Y will help you stay accountable and motivated, remove barriers to success, achieve your results and change your life. Starting a new wellness routine is not easy, but the Y’s Life Changing Challenge is here to simplify the process. Based on scientific research, this program incorporates goal setting, fitness nutrition into a 21-day program designed to help you achieve long-term results. Available for Y Members only.

At the YMCA, we offer many opportunities for you to reach your wellness goals, feel your best and enrich your life. Group exercise classes, personal training, and wellness consulataions are just a few of the ways the YMCA can help you improve your health and well-being.

Tweens & Teens Fitness Orientation

Set an appointment with one of friendly and professional Wellness Coaches. Each 30 minute appointment includes information about nutrition, gym etiquette, proper use of all cardio and strength equipment. Our curriculum is age appropriate and safe. We then provide a badge for your children to wear during their exercise to show they have taken the orientation.

To keep your children safe we require all children from 8 years old to 15 years old to go through this orientation before they are allowed to work out on the fitness floor.  All children under 13 years old need to be accompanied by an adult in the building.
