Beginner Fitness BFIT Program

 

JUST THE PUSH YOU NEED

Getting through the door is half the battle. Now it’s time to make the change you want, and stick to it.

Sometimes getting healthier can be difficult and can even be daunting for individuals beginning to exercise—but the Y is here to make it easy and approachable for you!

BFIT is a FREE 4 week Beginner Fitness program aimed to help you get healthier by having a BFIT Coach work with you to develop a plan in achieving your short term fitness goals and helping you turn them into a long term, healthy lifestyle.

We’ll provide structure and accountability to your workouts by helping you develop achievable goals, overcoming personal barriers, keeping track of your activities and introducing new options in the fitness center to help you on your wellness journey.

Your BFIT coach will be your guide and resource to help you achieve your highest potential!
