Member Wellness Orientations
As a member of the YMCA, you are invited to take advantage of our Member Wellness Orientations. We offer three levels of orientations: Intro to Fitness, Wellness Principles and Goal Setting.
Intro to Fitness: For the gym novice, we offer an intro orientation. We will give you a tour of our fitness floor, studios, offer class explanations, etc. You will also become comfortable on our cardio machines and know how to use the computer screens on each piece of equipment.
Wellness Principles: Created as a second step after the Intro to Fitness or for someone who has previous experience in a gym. We will provide you with a standard cardio and weight training program and get you set up on our Selection weight machines.
Goal Setting: Step three in our orientation offering is a goal setting session with a Fitness Coach. We use the SMART goal structure to help guide the member to set specific and attainable health and wellnessrelated goals.
