Personal Fitness Program. Many YMCAs have exercise programs with an individual touch specifically designed for the new or returning exercisers. Each participant has a coach who provides instruction, sets direction, and helps identify potential barriers to you staying active.
Personal Trainers. One-on-one instruction from a certified personal trainer can provide the ultimate in exercise instruction. A trainer not only designs a program just for you, but also guides you through each workout with technique tips and encouragement.
Private Exercise Area. It's not uncommon for those just starting out to feel intimidated being in a fitness area with lots of active people. To address this, many facilities have developed separate areas with fitness equipment and staff focused on the new exerciser.
Interactive Exercise Equipment. Easy-to-use, computerized exercise equipment that is interactive helps participants set workout parameters, monitor each exercise session, track progress, and stay motivated.
