Our comprehensive Youth Fitness Program is designed to teach youth how to safely use exercise equipment at the Y.

Youth Fitness Policy

Youth under 14 years of age are not permitted in the weight/cardio areas unless they have completed the Teen Strength Training or Youth Cardio Orientation. Youth in the Fitness Training Areas must be accompanied or under the direct supervision of a parent or responsible adult at all times. All youth must wear their Teen Strength or Youth Cardio Badge at all times while in the Fitness Training Area. 

Youth Cardio Orientation

This orientation is for ages 8–14 and will teach proper warm up, cool down and stretching as well as use of the cardio machines upstairs. Once this is completed youths will be issued a cardio badge and can work out upstairs with parents until age 14. The badge must be worn while utilizing the equipment. To sign up for a time, please call or stop by our Welcome Center.
