Personal Training

The Oahe Family YMCA offers Personal Training for those that want to experience a more personalized workout. All sessions are conducted by Certified Personal Trainers using the YMCA equipment and facilities. Session times are set up to meet your individual schedule. Each session is designed for 30-60 minutes with the trainer. Trainers set workouts that meet the wants and needs of the individual.  Participants are encouraged by the trainer to workout at a challenging but comfortable and safe pace. It is suggested that you check with your doctor before beginning any physical workout routine. Personal Training is available to YMCA members only. For information contact Karla at 224-1683 or email at karla@oaheymca.org or stop by the front desk.
