Health & Wellness
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!
Schedule a Wellness Orientation
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 orientation sessions. During these sessions you will be able to:
- Consult with a Personal Trainer about your wellness goals.
- Learn how to safely and properly operate the wellness equipment.
- Create a plan to help you develop a healthier lifestyle through proper exercise and nutritional habits.
Discover new pathways to healthy living with our new and improved individual and small group personal training. At the Y, personal training provides all individuals, from health seekers to athletes, with the ability to achieve their healthy living goals regardless of the degree of difficulty. Sign up for individual personal training sessions or small group personal training sessions.
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:
- Work with a wellness coach to establish goals
- Connect to a small group of other members just starting
- Overcome obstacles such as lack of time and motivation
- Feel more comfortable in an exercise environment
- Improve at your favorite sport or competitive event

- Learn proper intensity, frequency, and form of exercises
- Learn healthy eating habits reducing stress and anxiety
- Enhance immunity
