Weight Room Orientation:
The YMCA offers weight room orientation for new members, as well as existing ones. Orientations consist of a tour of the building, instruction on using the cardio equipment, and a brief instruction in either the Wellness Centre or Fitness Centre. Appointments are generally from 30-45 minutes, and can be made through the Fitness Department. Appointments are for members only. We recommend a fitness orientation for youth ages 12-16.
