We know that getting started is the hardest part. That’s why Fitness 4 Me, a 90-day program free with your membership, is designed to jumpstart your wellness journey and reward you as you make progress. The program combines the expertise of our personal trainers with Virtuagym technology, proven to make you four to six times more likely to achieve your wellness goals.
All new members will have access to this program. We’ll help you make that first step, and we’ll be there every step after to keep you on the path to success. Let’s get started!
The first step is JumpStart, a one-on-one appointment with a fitness instructor.
We’ll get to know you and your goals and develop an exercise plan just for you. We’ll also walk you through Virtuagym, our online exercise and nutrition tracker.
As a reward for attending and completing your first appointment, we’ll give you two free one-week passes to give your friends. Sound like a good deal so far?
Step two of the program is TestDrive, when a fitness instructor will walk you through a workout created on Virtuagym.
Each time you visit the Y, you can access your workout. It will tell you which pieces of equipment to use, how to set the weights and how long to rest between sets. There’s even an online exercise library that shows you how to perform the exercises correctly. Virtuagym takes the guesswork out of getting fit and makes sure you’re making progress each time you visit.
After your TestDrive, you’ll get 10 Y bucks that you can use toward any other service or program you’d like to try at the Y.
