Y YOUTH FITNESS MEMBERSHIP (Y.F.M.)
CARDIO & STRENGTH TRAINING For Youth Age 10+
Youth are invited to get their Youth Fitness Membership (Y.F.M.) which will allow them to use the Fitness Center any time during staffed hours when they present their Y.F.M. membership card. To obtain this membership, youth will attend an orientation class to learn how to use appropriate cardio machines (stationary bikes, treadmills, cross trainers, etc.) and Nautilus strength training machines for upper body, lower body and abdominal strengthening based on individual size and maturity. Youth will also be coached on appropriate gym etiquette.
Y.F.M. members may use the Fitness Center any time during staffed hours with or without parent or guardian (youth must present Y.F.M. card).
Members age 15 and over may use the Fitness Center any time.
