Personal Training

YMCA Personal Training is a one-on-one session with a personal fitness trainer. 

Our personal trainers are educated professionals often with years of experience who can help any YMCA member including working professionals, new moms, seniors and triathletes.

YMCA personal trainers come from as many different backgrounds and walks of life as our members do, and we take great care in matching members with the right personal trainer. 

Your initial visit includes a review of your health history, lifestyle and goals. Your personal trainer can then help you achieve goals through one-on-one attention, accountability and expertise. 

YMCA personal training is held at the YMCA, on land or in the water and incorporates many different elements and equipment.

YMCA Members can purchase Personal Training sessions individually, or in blocks of five or ten sessions. Additionally, Y members can partner up and share personal training. No more than 4 people at once.

Northwest Cary YMCA is now offering Mind Body Personal Training sessions. These sessions are one-on-one trainings that focus on your favorite format of Yoga or Pilates. The trainer is certified and will help you with your personal fitness journey with a customized session that will improve your flexibility and balance. Contact Stephanie Johnson for additional information.
