If you are new to fitness or returning to fitness after an extended period, a certified YMCA Fitness and Lifestyle Coach will guide you through seven contacts in your first three months to ensure you are on a path to success. Contacts may include phone calls, email, program modifications and face-to-face meetings to help you break down the psychological and physical barriers associated with starting a fitness routine. This is a free benefit for members.
