8 - 45 minute sessions with a Personal Trainer"

Our Adaptive Fitness Program allows our members with disabilities to partner up with another member who has similar health and fitness goals each week for a 45 minute personal training session with one of our certified Personal Trainers.  This 45 minute session is a 2:1 ratio and includes a custom tailored program to help each participant with their health and fitness goals.  The Personal Trainer remains with both members the entire time. 

Cost is $95 per participant and includes 8-45 minute sessions, or 1 session per week for 8 weeks. Private sessions are 45 minutes long and cost $140 for 1 private session per week for 8 weeks. This also includes a free private family wellness consultation to discuss the fitness goals and schedule of each participant.

Here is a recent observation from our staff member Kathy Nutt:

“I wanted to take a moment to explain one of the most amazing things I have seen since I began working for the YMCA's over 20 years ago.

Becky Melsa met with one of our new and most challenging adaptive fitness adults this Tuesday. She not only remained calm under pressure, but continued to do everything possible to help this young man succeed, regardless of all the hurdles they both had to overcome, not to mention the mother and brother of this young man who wanted to help, but were not sure how. Becky and her client succeeded and learned a bit about each other and it was truly awesome to see! Becky is totally a hero and mighty in every way! Hats off to you Becky, I am still in awe!

Each of the lifeguards working the pool were amazing, calm, attentive, and never once showed any frustration as the client, who cannot swim, went into the deep end without his life jacket on, jumped into lap lanes, dunked his head and body under the lap lane dividers, and overall created a bit of a tense situation several times. Each of the lifeguards supported Becky, the client, his family, and myself with amazing professionalism and grace. I really cannot thank them enough! They really rocked their job today.

 

WAY TO GO TEAM KROEHLER! We did something together that couldn't have been done by each alone! I am so proud to be surrounded by such an amazing team.”
