Y @ UPMC Hamot of Greater Erie

Personal-TrainerMore and more people, beginner, start/stop and veteran exercisers, alike, are working with personal trainers because they offer a practical and affordable means of getting and staying healthy.  Call 877-7030 to make an appointment or stop by the Membership Desk.

This YMCA program is designed to match you with a Personal Trainer who will develop a wellness routine to help you stay motivated and provide you with a workout designed for you to meet your personal wellness goals.

In addition to offering a FREE initial health assessment and orientation of the YMCA exercise equipment with your membership, the Y offers individual personal training.

A personal trainer is a fitness professional who develops and implements an individualized approach to physical fitness.  Trainers help an individual assess their level of physical fitness and help motivate them to work towards their personal wellness goals.

Tailor-Made Training

Personal trainers wear many hats, serving not only as coach, but also as confident, role model, educator and a major source of encouragement and motivation.

Some people may want consultation two or more times per week because it may help them to be more accountable to someone else for their exercise time. Others may prefer to see a trainer only occasionally to update their personal exercise program or for periodic fitness testing and receive feedback on their progress.

It is the beginner and stop/stop exerciser, however, that finds personal training most valuable.  A few sessions is often all it takes for some people to feel comfortable with independent exercise.
