Fitness Orientations

What is a Fitness Orientation?

We understand that walking into a fitness center, with its many types of equipment, can be intimidating. As a member of our Y, you receive a complimentary Fitness Orientation. This one FREE Fitness Orientation is an information session that takes about 45-minutes where a personal trainer or fitness professional will provide you with the basics of how to use the weight machines and cardio equipment in our facilities. You will also learn some basic knowledge on helping you reach your fitness goals and the benefits of working with a personal trainer as well as review training options moving forward.

 *All trainer/instructor appointments have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Please visit our Policies & Waivers page to learn more.
