Whether you’re new to the fitness scene or a seasoned veteran, we can offer you one-on-one support when it comes to personal fitness. Our personal trainers can offer assistance with Fitness Consultations, Wellness Center Orientations and Personal Training. We’re here to help you create a personalized plan for success.
For more information about these programs, please see our program brochure.
We’re here to help you meet your goals! Whether you are looking for guidance on how to get started, advice on what to do next, or an in-depth fitness assessment, we want to assist you in reaching your health goals.
All fitness consultations may include the following three things:
One-on-one Meeting with a Personal Trainer: This meeting will allow our personal trainers to help you determine your goals and the best way to achieve those goals through the programs at the West Cook YMCA.
FREE Fitness Assessment: This assessment will include analysis on body composition, blood pressure, cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, and flexibility. This assessment will allow you to better understand where you are in your healthy lifestyle journey and areas in which you can begin to set goals and improve your health.
Wellness Center Orientation: The Personal Trainer will give you an overview of the Wellness Center and the equipment, as well as information on the programs that interest you.
Register for your FREE Fitness Consultation at the Member Engagement Desk. Members are entitled to two Fitness Consultations per year. Failure to cancel a scheduled session 24 hours in advance will result in forfeiture of free consultation.
Youth participants will learn the basics of using cardio machines and a select number of strength machines. All Youth ages 10-15 are REQUIRED to have a Wellness Center Orientation prior to using the equipment. 12-15 year olds may then use the Wellness Center on their own, and 10-11 year olds must have a parent or guardian (18+) with them. Children under 16 may not use the Free Weights Area unless working with a Y Personal Trainer. Sign up at the Membership Engagement Desk for your orientation. Parent/guardian must accompany child at orientation.
Personal Training provides a stellar opportunity for you to improve your fitness. At the West Cook Y, we offer individual training and group training. Individual training is available for those who want to train on their own, according to the own schedule. Group training is a more affordable option for friends or couples who would like to train together. FitKids (personal training for kids) is available for children up to age 16 who are interested in learning how to improve their health.
Members can enjoy the benefits of personal training offered by West Cook YMCA certified trainers.
