Personal Training





Do you have everything it takes to get in shape but lack Motivation?

Are you someone that needs strong personal motivation, such as a training partner counting on you to get to the gym each day? Would you get more from your workouts if someone took you through every exercise every time you came to work out? Are you the type of person that just doesn’t want to think when you’re at the gym and would do better in your workouts if someone motivated and guided you through every step from the time you got to the gym until you went home? If the answer is YES then you may be perfect for the YMCAs’ one-on-one coaching or personal training program!


Achieve your fitness goals through training sessions and coaching from a certified personal trainer.


Personal training involves one or more regular training sessions designed to help you achieve your fitness goals. Your certified personal trainer will work with you and your schedule to develop a personalized fitness program. Personal training is offered in one-on-one, partner, or small group training sessions.
