Get started on your health & wellness path at the Y

We have a number of free programs and tools to get you started!  And personal training is a great way to have to get one-on one or small group attention.  For more information on any of the programs below, ask any Y Trainer, at the Welcome Center or contact Lynne Applebaum at lapplebaum@westfieldynj.org or 908-233-2700 x239.

ORIENTATIONS
FREE orientations are available to new and existing members.  During the orientation, a Y strength trainer will work one-on-one with you to get you started on a workout program tailored for your individual needs.  You will be shown how to properly set up the equipment for your height and body structure, how to perform each of the exercises, and how to progress each workout.  Common questions such as: “How do you use this machine?”  “Am I performing this exercise correctly?”  “Something does not feel right, can you help me?”  can be answered.

With our certified staff’s guidance, you will feel safe and comfortable so you can begin and continue on the path to achieving your fitness goals.
