Accountability & Support

Personal trainers are your partner in motivation and commitment to reaching your health and fitness goals. They bring positive encouragement, accountability, and support to every session.

Goal Progression

Personal trainers customize training plans that keep you engaged, inspired, and having fun! They introduce fresh workouts and techniques, and offer alternatives along the way.

What are the benefits of working with a personal trainer? add remove

Most of us know we need to exercise more, but don't know where to start, what to do, or how much/how often to do it. The benefits depend on your particular needs and goals. Personal trainers assess their clients and make a customized, progressive exercise plan. For experienced exercisers, personal trainers can assist clients in breaking through plateaus or boredom by selecting exercises that will continue to challenge the body in new ways.

Can I request a personal trainer? add remove

Yes, if that particular trainer has time available during your desired workout time.

What can I expect in an average session? add remove

The first session will focus on health history, physical assessments, and discussion around goals and interests. The following sessions will focus on an exercise routine that facilitates progression toward your goals.

Will my personal trainer work with pre-existing injuries or conditions? add remove

Yes. At the first session, any pre-existing injuries should be discussed with the personal trainer so he or she can modify an exercise routine to best address that issue. If the injury or condition is something that would jeopardize your safety while exercising, a medical clearance may be requested from your physician.

How do I sign up? add remove

You can purchase personal training above or fill out a Personal Training Request form at your local Y. The staff will pass on the request to the appropriate personal trainer, who will call you to schedule your first appointment. Personal training fees must be paid prior to the first appointment.

What happens after I sign up? add remove

After you purchase personal training, our team will be in touch to set a day and time that works with you and/or your partner's schedule.

 

SMART Start Health Assessments

As you begin your wellness journey with the YMCA, it is our goal to understand your personal needs so you can meet your health and fitness goals. Our SMART Start Health Assessment is a free 30–60-minute session with one of our wellness experts who will discuss the best path for you. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about group exercise classes, equipment, and recommendations for using the wellness floor. You'll also get an introduction into personal training and so much more.

About Y Personal Trainers 

Our personal trainers all maintain certification through at least one national health and fitness organization. In addition to national certifications, many trainers have special areas of expertise—like Barre, Kettlebells and Pilates Reformer—that require additional (and often intensive) training.

Benefits of Personal Training 

It can be hard to figure out your own fitness training, especially if you’re new to working out. A personal trainer takes the guesswork out of things, helping you plan and stay on track. Here’s how a personal trainer can help you reach your fitness goals.

  • Accountability & Support: They help keep you accountable and offer positive encouragement and support.
  • Goal Progression: A trainer can help you identify goals, map out a plan, and track and measure progress.
  • Education: They will educate you on proper form and other aspects of health and fitness.
  • Variety: Things stay fresh and fun with the customized workout plans a trainer can create.
