One-On-One Personal Training

Accountability to someone else increases the likelihood that we’ll follow-through on the steps needed to reach our goals.  With one-on-one Personal Training, it’s all about you. YMCA Personal Trainers will take you through a fitness assessment to test cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, flexibility, and more. With this information and your specific goals, trainers will be able to create an exercise program that will be efficient and effective in achieving your wellness lifestyle. Workouts are custom designed for you with attainable, challenging short and long-term goals. Motivational coaching focuses on exercise technique, nutrition guidelines, and healthy living. We’ll help you identify goals and limitations, then suggest a plan toward improved health, fitness or performance.

*Rates listed are for YMCA Members. Community rates are available upon request.
