To help you reach your Wellness Goals, we want to understand more about you. We offer several options to help us get to know you.


Meet with one of our Personal Trainers to discuss your goals to become healthy. Learn the operations of the Wellness Center as well as instruction on how to use the cardio and strength training equipment with safe and proper technique. Your meeting may also include basic fitness tests as chosen by you to assess your current health level. Ask the Welcome Center about how to make your appointment.

Personal training can make the difference in the success of your fitness program. If you need that extra motivation and one on one attention, we are here to help. Your trainer builds an extensive health history and fitness assessment to determine your goals and then guides you through a personalized program. Prices available upon request.

Our nationally certified YMCA personal trainers are here to serve you and help you reach your fitness goals. They have the knowledge and expertise to develop a safe and effective wellness program to best address your specific needs and interests, including strength, cardiovascular fitness and flexibility. Plus, they’re hired for their passion and commitment to upholding the Y’s mission to help you reach your fullest potential.

The YMCA understands that everyone is not at the same fitness level, so we accommodate you at your specific level of fitness. Whether you are an avid exerciser or a beginner, you can feel confident knowing that our personal trainers ensure you are being trained in a safe environment and at a comfortable pace.

We can assist you with single sessions for those who are self-motivated and just need to get started, or multiple sessions for those who need a little more motivation and coaching.

Personal training sessions are available to YMCA members only, are by appointment only (typically with a 24-hour cancellation policy), and may be provided by YMCA staff trainers only (members may not bring their own personal trainers). Sessions are approximately one hour in length. Call us at 901.398.2366 or see a Welcome Center staff member for personal training options and appointments.

The YMCA incorporates values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into each program for active older adults.
