We all have different goals and needs. Sometimes the expertise of a fitness professional is needed to help with program plan development, motivation, or accountability. Our Y Personal Trainer is trained to help you meet your fitness goals with an individualized exercise prescription and coaching. Your first session will involve a fitness assessment, consultation, and program design to make sure that you are getting what you want and need from your trainer. Personal Training Sessions are $20 each for members or $40 for non-members. You may also purchase a Personal Training Punch card with six sessions for $100 for members or $200 for non-members.  30 minute consultation: FREE for Y members
