Assess Your Level of Fitness . . .


How physically fit are you? Would you like to step up to the next level of fitness, and enjoy the rewards of a healthier lifestyle and a better sense of well-being?

Upon arrival, members receive a personal fitness assessment with one of our fitness staff. The assessment is not mandatory, but we do recommend that you take advantage of this complimentary service, so that you can assess current fitness levels, identify training needs, select training regimens, evaluate the success of your program in achieving its objectives, stay motivated
Your assessment will provide estimated measures of your fitness level including cardio respiratory endurance, muscular strength/endurance, flexibility, and body composition. 

The instructor is available to answer any questions that you may have, as well as help you decide which group aerobic classes are best for you and other activities that you may want to participate in. At the end of your stay, you will receive another fitness assessment, so you can see the results from all of your hard work. You can obtain a copy of this assessment to take home with you to keep for your own personal reference! 

Your membership includes a 45-minute fitness orientation with a YMCA staff person who will take you through your first workout.  Our staff will help you establish goals and formulate a plan to reach them.


Members learn the proper technique and execution on over thirty weight training machines for various muscle groups. Our staff will also help members gauge the intensity of aerobic workouts to reach optimal performance on our cardiovascular equipment. In addition, proper warm ups and stretches for tight muscles will be illustrated.  Members can schedule refresher appointments as needed at either the membership desk or in the Cardio Center.
