Fitness Assessment
YMCA staff will measure your heart rate, body composition, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance testing. With this baseline information,we’ll help you establish your personal goals.

Nutritional Consultation

Personal Training
A personal trainer can provide you with the individualized attention, guidance and motivation to help you meet your fitness goals.  The Ann Arbor YMCA has a diverse and experienced team of professional trainers to meet your specific objectives.

Pilates and Yoga Training
Work one-on-one with a Pilates or yoga instructor to boost core strength, increase range of motion, enhance posture, and gain flexibility.  Pilates classes offer a total body workout with the focus on aligning the spine and strengthening the core.  Yoga sessions focus on core awareness, and stretches and poses that promote strength, flexibility and balance.

Partner/Small Group Training
Training with one partner or a few lets you and your friends wor-out together while motivating one another.  An initial commitment of four sessions is required.  The same fee will be charged even if one person is missing from the group session.

Sport-Specific Training
Sport-specific training can help you achieve your goals by fine-tuning your training to maximize your success. Many of our trainers are competitive athletes who utilize their own experience when working with clients.
