Get Started & Orientation

Base Camp & Get Started YMCA OF MIDDLETOWN

Base Camp was designed to provide a smaller more private space for personal training, small group trianing and individual members to enjoy a quiet workout in a less crowded space.

This room was also designed with the understanding that starting a fitness routine can be very difficult for new or returning health seekers. We want you to feel comfortable, confident and successful on your path to beginning a new healthier lifestyle so we’ve created a 9 week Get Started Program to help you set safe attainable fitness goals, create a balanced routine, and encourage you to work at your own pace with guidance and support from qualified fitness professionals.

What is the GET STARTED Program?

  • Weekly 45-minute sessions with an Exercise Coach in a small group following a 9 week lesson plan
  • Exercises begin slowly, safely and gradually increasing over the 9 weeks
  • Informational handouts on wellness and nutrition
  • Your exercise coach will closely monitor your attendance, provide support, motivation and encouragement while teaching you the basics of fitting activity into your lifestyle
  • All coaching sessions will be at the same time, on your selected day of the week
  • Sessions cannot be made up on an individual basis

 

MAKE THE COMMITMENT TO YOUR HEALTH TODAY!

This $25.00 program is available to YMCA Members only.
Upon completion of the program, your $25 will be credited to your YMCA account for use towards the purchase of YMCA apparel and merchandise available at our Welcome Center desk.
