The large variety of cardiovascular and strength training equipment allows members with diverse abilities, backgrounds and  interests to workout together. This space includes over 30 pieces of cardiovascular equipment including treadmills, steppers, ellipticals, upright & recumbent bikes, an ergo meter, and a recumbent stepper and a Jacob’s Ladder. The Wellness Center has coaches available to help you get started or move your fitness to the next level. 


Free for Members

We understand that sometimes beginning your membership can be a little overwhelming. With dozens of programs, opportunities, and equipment to learn, you may find yourself not knowing where to start. The Fit 60 appointment is designed to help you with this. Our Wellness coach will spend 60 minutes with you to fully understand your particular needs and goals. He or she will discuss and show you programs, equipment, and classes that will best fit you needs. You should expect to leave with an understanding of what fits you best here at our Y and where to start.

Your FIT 60 appointment could include:

ActivTrax - For members who want to incorporate resistance training in their exercise program with one of the most powerful fitness tools available. ActivTrax helps guide you in reaching your overall goals through activity tracking, guided workouts and nutrition and meal planning.


Coaching Session - Coaches will help design an exercise program that fits the member’s needs.

Your FIT60 appointment is not a high pressure sales pitch for personal training or a medical type of appointment where you’ll be poked and prodded. You don't’ have to worry about being uncomfortable or embarrassed; you won’t be asked to do anything you don’t want to do.

Anyone 14 years or older. Whether you’re new to exercise or in tip-top shape, our FIT60 experience is an opportunity for us to get to know one another. Whether you want to lift weights, take classes, swim, play sports or have some other interests in mind, we want to make sure we do our part in helping you get started on the right foot.

Members who attend their FIT60 appointment within the first two weeks of joining are 6x more likely to achieve their goals. Let’s make sure you’re one of them!

If you choose ActivTrax, you can access a online weight management tool to help you match your calorie intake to your activity levels and achieve any weight  management goals you may have.
