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.

For information about Personal Training Programs, contact our Healthy Lifestyle Coach, Tesi Klipsch, at (269) 731-3044 or at

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.
