As you continue on your journey to a healthier lifestyle, you may choose to have a Wellness Orientation. A member of the Wellness Team will develop a safe and effective Wellness Plan, and make recommendations to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. Orientations can be scheduled at the Welcome Center of your local branch.
Participants must fill out a health history form, which can be found at the Welcome Center.
If you are in need of some motivation or need to fine-tune your workout routine, our Personal Training Program may be the answer. Training sessions focus on teaching the fundamentals of proper exercise and the correct use of equipment. Personal training is also available for our teen members who wish to improve their athletic/sports performance or just get in shape. Each session lasts one hour. For more information, visit the Wellness Center or email email@example.com
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy on personal training sessions. Services will be charged if an appointment is not cancelled 24 hours in advance.
