FitPath powered by ActivTrax

Y Staff explains FitPath

WHAT IT IS

FitPath is a FREE program for all Y members designed to help you reach your wellness goals. On your initial appointment, a YMCA Wellness Coach will discuss your goals, review all the options available to you, set up your ActivTrax profile and help create a program that’s right for you. Follow up appointments will be available to help ensure you stay on track and are achieving your goals.


WHAT IT’S NOT

FitPath is not a high-pressure sales pitch for personal training or a medical appointment where you’ll be poked and prodded. You don’t have to worry about being uncomfortable or embarrassed; you won’t be asked to do anything you don’t want to do.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Everyone! Whether you’re new to exercise or in tip-top shape, FitPath is designed to help everyone, whatever your goals, exercise or activity preferences may be. Whether you want to lift weights, take classes, swim, play sports or have some other interests in mind, we want to make sure we do our part in helping you get started on the right path.


WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

Members who meet with a Wellness Coach within their first two weeks of joining are 6X more likely to achieve their goals. Let’s make sure you're one of them!

The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits gained through early exposure to fitness are far greater than just physical health.

FAMILY EVENTS

The Y has always been a place where families come together to have a good time; participate in a variety of fun activities; share, communicate and strengthen their relationships; and meet other families. Family Events are usually scheduled for a weekend evening and can be either structured or free-flowing. Activities include mixers, games, arts and crafts, family fitness, games, volunteer opportunities and family discussions over refreshments. Example events include Fall Festivals, Cookies with Santa, Healthy Kids' Day and more!
