This is a great way to add direction, accountability, and unlimited access to fitness advice and motivation. $28 YMCA Member, $40 non-members per one hour session.
This program is similar to personal training with the exception that you work with a wellness coach that has an exercise background, but is not a certified personal trainer. Your wellness coach can work 1-on-1 with you during individual sessions, or can design a program just for you to follow on your own. Great for people who need general fitness advice but not long-term personal training. The personal coaching sessions can be half-hour and full hour sessions. Per Hour: $20 Member, $32 Non-Member – Half Hour: $10 Member, $16 Non-Member.
The program design option is perfect for members who need some fitness programming but not everyday personal training. You meet with a wellness coach to design a program specifically to meet your goals. Your wellness coach helps you complete and understand the program, then you complete the program on your own. Programs are generally designed for 4-8 weeks. Price includes initial consultation, design of your program, and up to 3 sessions with a wellness coach to learn the program. Cost: $90/Members Only
