Health, Well Being & Fitness

WHERE DO I BEGIN?

First, don't worry, everyone's wellness journey is different and we can help guide you on your way.  An orientation with our knowledgable Wellness Center Staff is a good starting point where we will walk you through the proper use of our cardio floor equipment and circuit training weight machines.  An orientation lasts about an hour, and is a great way to get through your first Y workout.  Schedule your appointment with the Welcome Center today.
