Personal Training

A free Personal Training program custom designed for your specific needs and goals is included with your membership. This Program is designed by our Certified Personal Trainers and as a Sherman Lake YMCA member you are entitled to two (2) free sessions each year.

Fitness Assessments are available for a fee to all members – we also offer a fee structure for those members wishing to meet with a Trainer each time they visit, to have their program supervised and custom edited as they progress.

Working out with a certified personal trainer is a great way to get into your best physical shape. Trainers build a program specialized to your goals; they offer motivation, accountability, and expertise!

A personal trainer can help you:

  • Improve your overall fitness

  • Learn new skills

  • Reach and maintain a healthy weight

  • Take charge of your health.

These and other general “fitness questions” can be directed to Tesi Klipsch, our Healthy Lifestyle Coach. Just e-mail your questions to and we will give you some basic information to help you address your fitness concerns. Of course, as a member, you may access our trainer in-person and receive more specific answers and strategies to address your fitness questions.
