    The Y is much more than a wellness facility. Our Wellness Coaches are always available in the Wellness Center to answer any questions you may have. If you would like additional motivation and support to reach your goals, the Y offers additional personal training and small group options for a fee. We also provide a wide range of free group exercise classes throughout the week.

    Whether your goal is to lose weight, improve your sports performance, or simply stay fit, we're here to help! Wellness Coaches are available to help you set up a workout routine, stay motivated, develop a new strength training program, or help you learn how to use our equipment. Stop by the Welcome Center to sign up for any of the following FREE programs to help you get started!

     

    Wellness Coaching

    Our professionally trained and certified wellness staff members are here to help you reach your health and wellness goals. They seek to provide answers to your fitness questions while providing information and guidance for you to feel comfortable using the Wellness Center. We strongly suggest you take advantage of one of our FREE new member wellness coaching sessions. During these sessions you will be able to:

    Individual Personal Training

    Certified, professional, and motivated staff work with clients on health and nutrition education in addition to developing personalized routines based on individual goals. Clients start with a customized wellness evaluation measuring current abilities, reviewing history, and making goals. These goals are monitored to celebrate success. Through traditional and innovative techniques, clients will build relationships, gain confidence, and maintain a focus on long-term health and sustainability.

    Small Group Personal Training

    Small group personal training inspires participants to team up to take advantage of the benefits of variety, community, and accountability while exceeding their individual wellness goals. This small group setting allows our professional trainers to incorporate flexibility and choice into workouts, yet still customize training methods and workout routines to accommodate individual needs and preferences.

    Personal training sessions can help you:

    Competitive Tennis

    Competitive Level (Previous Experience Required)

    Players involved in this program are comfortable with basic tennis techniques and concepts. Players are starting to show an interest in competitive play and high school tennis. Competitive techniques, development of individual playing styles, team and tournament concepts, rules, etiquette and sportsmanship are emphasized. Class is packaged with supervised match play.

    • Junior Competitive, 10 - 13 years
    • Senior Competitive, 14 - 17 years

    Tournament Training Program (Evaluation Required Prior to Joining Program)

    The Tournament Training Program (TTP) is for the junior player actively pursuing year round competition and sanctioned tournament participation. While all our classes offer instruction, TTP is separated by one factor – INTENSITY. Tennis is a challenging sport to play and master, and players without intensity don’t succeed at the highest level! Students in TTP not only share the skills required of tennis, but also the love of the sport! In addition to intensive on-court instruction and workouts, off-court sport science topics will be introduced and discussed.

  • WHIM & Adaptive Programs

    Adaptive Programs & Equipment

    At the Y, the goal is to provide wellness opportunities to all members of the community regardless of their ability. Our adaptive programs help individuals gain confidence, promote independence and responsibility, socialize and work with others, as well as nurture a healthy and active lifestyle. All programs are led by qualified, trained individuals who help promote a safe, friendly, and supportive environment for all needs.

    Our state-of-the-art Wellness Center offers equipment for all members to use their abilities for a cardio workout, an upper body workout, a lower body workout, or a workout that combines both. Our indoor pool features an ADA compliant pool chairlift. At the Allard Center, we have an accessible playground open to the community so that younger community members can enjoy social active play with their peers.

Participants learn about health and wellness topics that are relevant to them and the group setting provides them a chance to socialize and connect with people who understand them.
