Specialty Training/Boot Camps

For those with specific fitness goals, the Y offers various specialty training and boot camps designed for smaller groups. Specialty fitness classes combine the unique elements of group training and accountability in a focused fitness environment. We cater to all fitness levels from beginner through advanced.

Contact Adam Cardwell at to get more information regarding the different specialty training/boot camps, trainers, dates, specific times and fees! 

Space is limited! Register at the Welcome Desk or scroll down to see all that is open for registration.

Bring a friend to Specialty Training/Boot Camps, and you both get 50% off!

If you currently attend a month-to-month Specialty Training or a Boot Camp, bring a new friend (or they haven’t been in at least 6 months) to sign up and you’ll get 50% off that month’s session.


Personal Training

All workouts are not created equal! Reach your wellness goals with a certified trainer.

Whether you are trying to lose weight, conditioning yourself for a sports activity or simply desire to improve your overall fitness, a Y personal trainer adds a hands-on, dynamic relationship to your wellness routine. A personal trainer prepares your workout agenda, motivates you to do your best, keeps you accountable and encourages you to try new things. Our trainers personalize workouts based on your lifestyle—from working professionals to athletes to new moms and more. You’ll achieve maximum results and avoid injury with a Y personal trainer on your side!

Sign up for 4 or more Personal Training sessions and receive a free 30 minute fitness assessment!

New Clients: Our goal is for your personal trainer to contact you within 48 business hours (M-F) of when your paperwork is submitted. If you have not heard from your trainer, please email Adam Cardwell for feedback:
