The Y is a starting point for many kids and teens to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they'll carry with them throughout their lives

Are you in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade and want to start working out? This two part class is for you! In a small-group setting you'll learn how to use the wellness center equipment and see how to combine cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, and stretching exercises for a workout that's right for you. You will also learn gym etiquette, usage rules, and safety guidelines. This is an instructional appointment with one of our trained Wellness Center staff members to orient youth members to the Wellness Center. This appointment is mandatory for any students in grades 6-8 to use the Wellness Center.    


Machines NOT ALLOWED for use are:  Nu-Steps, Seated Octane ellipticals, Cybex Abdominal Crunch machine, Cybex Back Extension machine, the free weight section. We have made these updates with consideration for our adult members and the safety of our Youth Strength members.


Every Youth Strength & Conditioning member will receive an ID badge that allows them access to the Wellness Center. The youth MUST have this badge while they are in the Wellness Center or may be asked to leave until they have it. Replacement badges will be made for a $5 charge. Badges may now be stored at the Wellness Center desk in the designated card box for your convenience.
