The YMCA has led community-based health and fitness for more than a century!

Participation in YMCA health and fitness programs offer opportunities for friendship and community, a sense of well-being, self-confidence and improved mental abilities, not to mention the obvious health benefits of healthy heart, lungs, bones, and muscles.

Each day many people join the YMCA with a high motivation to become healthier but sometimes they need help and support!

The Y strives to make available to you the most experienced and professional personal fitness trainers. Our trainers cover a vast array of clientele including athletes, sedentary adults, seniors and teens. Our certified personal trainers can design a personalized training program specifically for you based on your individual profile.

Whether it's losing weight, toning up, building muscles, increasing stamina, or preparing for an event, YMCA Personal Trainers will help you reach your fitness goals through personalized training. And we'll help you learn how to stay that way for life.
