Wellness Area Orientation/Guidelines

To ensure a safe and effective exercise program, all members are encouraged to meet with a Y Personal Coach for a free Wellness Orientation. Our friendly, certified staff will discuss how to properly use the cardiovascular and strength equipment. Please wear comfortable workout clothes and sneakers.

Group Wellness Orientations are held every week and are free of charge, but we ask that members register at the Welcome Desk for the session you would like to attend.
