The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active and developing healthy habits.

 

As soon as your child turns 8, he/she is welcome to work out with a parent or guardian in our Wellness Center, which is a great opportunity to introduce them to a healthy way of life as well as promote family fitness!
 

Ages 8 - 10:  May use cardio equipment only and must be under the direct supervision of an adult at ALL times.
Ages 11 - 15:  May use the strength equipment upon completion of Youth Fitness Fundamentals (with the exception of free weights)
Age 16+:  May use Wellness Center freely
 


 

Youth Fitness Fundamentals 

This course teaches children/teens the basics of anatomy, physiology, nutrition and how to use the equipment in the weight training center. Youth must attend four one-hour classes which conclude with a written and practical test. Upon successful completion of this program (complete 4 classes), participants will be permitted to utilize the Wellness Center without parental supervision (with the exception of free weights).
