The Y offers personal training for individuals ages 11 and over. Regardless of your fitness background or goals, we have a trainer for you here at the Y. Our trainers’ expert advice and personalized attention can provide you with the edge to keep you motivated and overcome fitness plateaus. All of our trainers are certified through nationally accredited fitness organizations and are required to complete continuing education courses to keep them on top of the newest information in exercise science.
On a daily basis our trainers help clients who need assistance reaching their goals of weight loss, strength building, cardiorespiratory endurance, continuing exercise post-rehab, sports conditioning, learning new exercises, efficient movement and mobility, stress management, and confidence boosting. With over a dozen trainers with various certifications, specialties, and educational backgrounds, we’re sure to find someone that you’ll connect and work well with.
In a given session with a trainer at the Y you’ll warm up properly, learn and work to perfect your form in a safe manner on the exercises in your program, go through your personalized, goal-oriented workout with the guidance and encouragement from your trainer, and discuss nutrition and recovery tips to help you make the most of your training with us.
Step 1. Please complete the Personal Training Request Form below.
Once submitted, the Personal Training Coordinator will take the time to review the request in order to assign the best possible Trainer for the clients’ needs. This process could take up to three days before the trainer will contact the client. Personal Trainers are employees of the YMCA but do not have pre-scheduled hours. Trainers are on-site when an appointment is made. Appointments are critical for client and trainer to ensure the best possible day/time to meet. Walk-in requests for same-day appointments are not allowed.
*Available at both Y locations
Please note that our personal trainers schedule their own appointments. You must cancel 24 hours in advance or you will be charged for one session. For more information contact the Downtown Y at 301-663-5131, ext. 1236.
Step 2: Purchase Personal Training Sessions. 30 minute training sessions are available. (A one hour appointment will use two training sessions within their package)
If you’d prefer to train alongside someone, we also offer group personal training to both members and non-members. Groups of two with similar fitness goals will meet with their trainer to perform workouts together.
