Indoor Personal Training Resumes at the Summit Area YMCA

With Governor Murphy's recent reopening New Jersey announcement, effective July 3, we can now open our fitness center doors to provide 1-on-1 personal training to our members!

With this news, we are excited to resume indoor personal training beginning Monday, July 6 at the Berkeley Heights YMCA & Summit YMCA. We will continue to offer outdoor personal training, or a combination of both, if that is your preference. Additionally, we will also continue to offer outdoor group exercise classes.

If you are a previous personal training client and are ready to resume or purchase new sessions, we can't wait to have you back! Please click below to complete the RETURNING CLIENT form and we will reach out to discuss scheduling. If you are new to personal training and interested in getting started, we encourage you to take advantage of our new client offer - 3 sessions for $150. Please complete the NEW CLIENT form and we will contact you to get started!

At the Y, our team of nationally certified and talented Personal Trainers will inspire you to set fitness goals, hold you accountable and motivate you to work harder to achieve results. Each session is tailored completely to your needs, goals and even mood! We are here to help you build not just muscle, but confidence with ongoing support and motivation that will help keep you on track in your wellness journey.


Please know, the safety of our members and staff remains our highest priority, we have adopted and will abide by all of the new state, county and town health and safety guidelines required to offer these services. With that in mind, please note the following updated policies, procedures and requirements in order to participate.

• If you elect to participate in personal training, you are granting us permission to reactivate your membership dues which have currently been on hold. Your membership will be prorated for the month from the first day you plan to attend a session. With your membership activated, you will also be granted access to attend outdoor group exercise classes.

• Upon check in, you will be required to participate in a temperature check using a touchless thermometer and a health screening questionnaire where you will be asked several Covid-19 related questions. If you have a fever of 100.4 or greater or answer positively to any of the health screening questions you will not be allowed to attend the session.

• Members and staff will be required to wear masks during check-in, the health screening and upon exiting the facility. We are waiting for further guidance regarding mask requirements during indoor personal training sessions. Masks during workouts are optional for outdoor sessions/classes.

• You must complete our updated membership waiver online (below) before participating in any activity at the Y. 



Additional details on updated policies and available programs at the Y can be found in our REOPENING GUIDE.
