Fitness Orientations

At the Y, we always use a holistic lens when viewing a healthy lifestyle, and we believe that begins with an intentional focus on strengthening your mind, body and spirit. Our wellness orientation program – Y Active – supports your health by offering a menu of options to not only help you become comfortable with your YMCA branch, but to also map out an achievable path towards your goals. We seek to give you the tools you need to build a healthy, happy and active lifestyle, and we are always right beside you on the journey – cheering and celebrating your accomplishments.

Y Active is composed of a customizable menu of options that our wellness staff can help tailor to your specific needs. Take a look at some of the options below and get started building your Y Active program.

Fitness Equipment Orientations

We understand that walking into a fitness center, with its many types of equipment, can be intimidating. Let us help you! During an orientation, you will learn how to use the cardiovascular and/or strength equipment in our wellness centers to increase your health and well-being. Orientations will be one-on-one or in small groups, depending on the branch.

Teen Fitness Orientation

Our Teen Fitness Orientation teaches youth and teens (ages 12-15) how to work out safely and effectively within the Y Fitness Center. It introduces basic muscle anatomy, exercise concepts and guidelines, gym etiquette and safety practices.

Once youth have successfully completed the Teen Fitness Orientation program, they will be able to work out in the Fitness Center without parental supervision.
