We want all of our new members to get the most out of their experiences at the Y. We want more smiles, more fun, and more positive results! In order to help you achieve your fitness goals, we like to take the time to learn more about you and just exactly what it is you’re hoping to achieve at the Y. We offer several FREE orientation sessions that will help us get acquainted with you, and to help you get familiar with the many wellness solutions we offer. Let us help you take the first step towards better health and fitness!
Our orientations are designed for all members seeking coaching on proper form and technique on specific wellness center equipment. Our wellness center houses a variety of strength and cardio apparatus, and we want to ensure that you’re familiar with the equipment and using it both safely, and to your full advantage. Work with our wellness coaches on identifying equipment that aligns with your wellness goals, and practice utilizing the equipment safely and efficiently. All of our orientations are drop-in classes.
