This assessment will also evaluate where you are physically, where you want to be, and what changes need to be made to help you reach your goals.
Determine your "realistic" weight range, based on your percentage of body fat and lean mass. Body fat is an essential component of healthy weight loss, gain, and maintenance. Body Composition Analysis is included in a Personal Fitness Assessment.
Trainers develop an individualized exercise plan for your specific goals. You will learn the proper techniques for utilizing cardio and strength training equipment. Whether you want to manage your weight, participate in sports conditioning during the off season, or live healthier, the YMCA has a personal training program for you. Personal training sessions must be pre-registered. Training is available for youth members also.
We'll write a program for you and your workout partner to be done together. A "buddy system" can assist in motivation, and dedication to your goals.
Group fitness classes are a great way to challenge yourself and improve on your specific goals. We have classes that focus on cardio, strength, flexibility, and even a blend of the three. For our current class offerings check out our program brochure.
Licensed therapists can provide a full therapeutic massage or tailor your massage to meet specific needs.
