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.
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.

Nicholas is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports and Medicine. I got interested in personal training because to me helping someone uncover the path that leads to healthy habits, improved self esteem, inner and outer strength and balance can be very exciting and contagious for everyone involved in the process. Its very fulfilling to watch the process of someone grow in a positive healthy direction. My favorite exercise is definitely the barbell deadlift because it makes you feel super powerful and hits a large amount of muscle groups at once. Its also a great tool as a trainer as it exposes individuals strengths, weaknesses and mobility issues. Lots of bang for your buck here. I do have a daily routine it either starts with my workout, yoga or meditation. The best tip I have for people is to have a clear plan of action. Define what your specific goal is, then research it and seek out ways to achieve it. Document it, and watch your progression go from there. My secret method is simple: Stay consistent and don’t give up. If you fall off the horse get right back on again, and again, and again. The longer you wait to get up, the harder it is. Fitness motto: There can be no growth or strength without resistance so embrace the resistance and grow strong.
Gianna is certified as a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and a Certified Speed & Explosion Specialist (CES), through the National Association of Speed & Explosion (NASE).
Although familiar with traditional methods of training, I specialize in corrective exercise. Corrective exercise is a rehabilitative functional approach that focuses on various muscle imbalances within the body. These imbalances may hinder proper function of the body, leading to pain, discomfort, and eventually injury. Each assessment is followed by a program designed specifically for the individual at hand. Incorporating this method of training allows the individual to improve elements such as posture, form, pain or discomfort and reduce risk of overall injury.
Engaging in sports throughout my youth and enduring some injuries along the way was what sparked my interest in the human body and how it operates. Working out has always been the best stress reliever and I believe it is the greatest medicine for so many ailments. My tip to others would be not to stress too much, listen to your body and trust the process.
