Personal Training

Reach Your Fitness Goals with a YMCA Personal Trainer.

Whether you’re new to the gym or a fitness fanatic, personal trainers help to breakthrough barriers and achieve goals! With a custom, well-organized plan, working out is engaging and satisfying. Resist the risk of aimless gym trips with a little help from our friends.

Work one-on-one with a YMCA Nationally Certified Personal Trainer. The trainer will evaluate health history, lifestyle and perform physical assessments that measure your starting point to aid in designing a program that will specifically meet your needs and help you achieve your goals. 

Small Group Training

Bring a friend and get fit together! Personal attention in a small group (2-5 people) setting that involves camaraderie and energy. By the use of the fitness center equipment and exercises common with strength training workouts there is a progressive approach to common goals within the group. These sessions are led by a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer. 

Wellness Consultation

Take the first step toward reaching your personal goals and meet with one of our Personal Trainers for a Wellness Consultation. It’s complementary with your membership!

Together, we’ll identify goals and limitations, and then develop a plan for improvement that meets your unique needs. We can guide your training in:

  • Developing strength, power, endurance, and flexibility
  • Machine-based workouts in the Wellness Center on our state-of-the-art Technogym equipment
  • Weight loss
  • Sports-specific training
  • Whatever your goals, we will support you in achieving them!

About YMCA Personal Trainers

Like you, Personal Trainers come in a variety of shapes and sizes with different backgrounds and experience.

At the Y, Personal Trainers have at least one thing in common—they have and maintain certification through at least one national health and fitness organization or a 4 year exercise science degree. In addition to national certifications, many trainers have special areas of expertise—like Olympic Lifting, Barre, Kettlebells, Running, and Youth Specific Conditioning—that require additional (and often intensive) training.

Please contact our Personal Training Coordinator at or (201) 955-5300 to request a Personal Trainer.
