A Personal Welcome for New Members!


AUGUST 30, 2018

What better way to say "Welcome to The Summit Area YMCA" than with a few one-on-one personal training sessions?

New members joining the Summit YMCA can receive three 1-hour sessions with a personal trainer for a special rate of $150. That’s $60 in savings! To receive this special rate, members must sign up within 30 days of joining.

There are countless benefits to working with a personal trainer
regardless of fitness level or experience. With a personal trainer you can customize your workout to fit your exercise goals and busy schedule. You can improve your strength, flexibility, endurance, posture and cardiovascular health bringing you closer to achieving your fitness goals! Moreover, a trainer can provide you with expert guidance when using gym equipment ensuring proper technique and preventing injury. A personal trainer can even help you get back on track after an injury or simply overcome a plateau!

If working out in a small group is your preference, consider the Y’s small group training classes. Small group training is a fun, effective and affordable way to reach your fitness goals. Our nationally recognized certified trainers lead these groups focusing on individual strengths, goals and fitness levels of the participants. While closed group sessions generally last six weeks, we also offer small group drop-in training classes!

Since group size is limited, pre-reservations are strongly recommended. Reservations are available - two weeks prior - through the SAY Mobile App or our Online Schedules tab. Payments can be made at the front desk. Please arrive a few minutes early for payment.

View class schedules online, on the SAY Mobile App or in print at the front desk.


If you don’t see a small group that works for you, grab some friends and start your own!
