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.

 

FAMILY FITNESS

Start your kids off on the right foot—get them into fitness today! All kids ages 9-13 are required to take our Family Fitness class along with a parent prior to being allowed to use the Wellness Center and Track. Family Fitness is a free orientation class, learn all the basics of working out on the machines and then begin working out together as a family! Please schedule an appointment for your orientation.
