The YMCA was established to help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.  We want to help you achieve this goal by joining with our fitness family today.  We offer everything from orientations and assessments to group exercise classes and personal training.  No matter what you are looking for we have it in our fitness department.  Click HERE or on any of the links for information for you and the whole family!

Each class session includes cardiovascular, strength training, balance and  flexibility exercises and the fostering of strong social relationships between participants. Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults. Those with a chronic condition, such as arthritis, need not worry; they will never have to do anything that hurts. Participants can use chairs for support, if necessary, and use wrist and ankle weights for strength training.

InBody Analysis

Body Composition Analyzer from Biospace

Monitoring your weight is not enough. It can be misleading when used as an indicator of progress and health. Your body is a complex structure made of different components: water, fat and muscle. In 30 seconds, you will receive a detailed results sheet of the components that are the key in understanding more about your body. It is a more accurate method of bio-impedance analysis, and it is 98% accurate to the dexa scan.
